ABOUT THIS TOUR

This tour offers the opportunity to try out the most popular activities in Lapland during the same program: snowmobile safari, reindeer and husky rides.

We start the tour by snowmobiles, where you have a chance to ride your own snowmobile around the Arctic Circle area. You will enjoy the beautiful wintry scenery whilst driving and make some short stops where opportunities for photos are abundant. We will make a stop at the local reindeer farm where you will get to experience a short but exciting reindeer sleigh ride. We warm ourselves up in the Lappish tepee called “kota”, where hot Lappish berry juice and cookies will be served for the guests. Here we take part in the mysterious Arctic Circle Ceremony.

After snowmobiling we will go to the local husky camp to find out more about dog sledding in the Arctic. As a highlight of the experience, you will get to ride in the sled pulled by a team of excited and sporty huskies. Warm drinks are served at the same time when you hear stories about the dogs, their breeds, pedigrees and daily life in the kennel. You can pet the dogs and take a lot of photos.  

Duration of the program is 4 hours, including preparations. The riding time on snowmobiles is approximately 1 hour and 30 - 40 minutes. The average speed during our short tours is limited due to the safety and traffic regulations. Two adults ride on one snowmobile, single riding supplement for an extra charge. Children are traveling in the sleigh pulled by the guide’s snowmobile.

Snowmobile tours start and end in Wild Nordic Safari Center (Joulupukintie 1) located next to Santa Claus Village.

You can skip the return transfer and continue your visit to Santa.

FAQ

(See all questions and answers here)

- When is a booking for a tour with Nordic Adventures confirmed?

A booking is confirmed when you receive a confirmation email. If you think you have made a booking and have not received an email confirmation, please send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form, and we will figure this out together.

- How do i pay for a tour with Nordic Adventures?

You can pay through the internet, through our website. This is by far the easiest, safest and fastest way to reserve and pay for your adventure. You will receive a voucher as a confirmation via e-mail which you will need to bring with you for your trip. You will always get a voucher by email: REMEMBER TO PRINT IT OUT AND BRING IT ALONG OR MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN SHOW IT ON YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICE!

- What kind of clothing do i need to wear if i have a snowmobile tour?

If you wish, you can wear your own clothing and boots during our snowmobile tours but we strongly recommend using our special equipment.

- Thermal overall

- Balaclava mask (on snowmobile tours)

- Woolen socks

- Winter boots

- Scarf (if needed)

- Mittens

- Helmet (on snowmobile tours)

If the day tour you’re joining includes the use of thermal clothing, you’re welcome to arrive dressed in your normal clothes. However, especially on tours lasting more than two hours we would recommend considering the following clothing of your own:

- Long thermal underwear

- Sport or ski socks worn under woolen socks

- Trousers: loose-fitting, fleece, softshell or similar

- Sweater: wool, fleece or similar warm material

- Neck warmer instead of scarf if you want

- Warm hat

- Your own jacket to be worn under the overall if the temperatures are close to -15 °C or lower

If the outdoor tour you are joining does not include the use of winter clothing, please make sure to bring your own winter boots, weatherproof jacket, trousers and gloves, in addition to the equipment listed above.

- What happens if i have an accident with the snowmobile during the tour?

Safety is very important on our guided tours. Even if everything is well considered, accidents are possible, because of human error. The snowmobile is always covered with traffic insurance, as demanded by the law. This insurance covers all the possible costs that come to the rider, passenger or possible third party persons (transportation, medical treatment, hospital, doctor, surgery) or third party vehicle (damages, broken parts, repair costs). However, this insurance DOES NOT cover the costs that occur to your own snowmobile, if you are the guilty party for the accident. Because of this, participants will sign a document, where they agree that they are responsible for riding the snowmobile (steering, accelerating, using breaks, following the laws, regulations and instructions), they have a valid driving license and they are not under the influence of alcohol or any drugs.

If an accident happens, the guide will be in charge of the situation and he/she will focus first on people’s safety and first aid. After that part is clear, he/she will monitor the vehicles and make the decision on continuing or aborting the tour.

Self-liability in the case of damages is 900€. A participant can buy an additional self-liability waiver (15€ per driver) before the safari starts and reduce his/her self-liability to 150€.

Outside of the snowmobiling, we recommend a travel insurance that will cover other activities.

- How fast are we driving on snowmobile tours?

Snowmobile trails have official speed limits, controlled by local police officers. Speed limits are shown with traffic signs but if there is an area without the traffic signs, the following limits will remain; maximum 60 km/h on the trail, maximum 80 km/h on ice covered water areas and maximum 40 km/h with a snowmobile pulling a sledge.

On guided snowmobile tours the speed is related to the maximum speed limit of the area BUT our first priority is the safety and the skill level of the group. The guide will monitor how the people in the group are riding and the speed is always related to that. Another important thing is the condition of the trail and weather conditions in general. The target on guided tours is to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all the participants, also for the ones with no experience at all.

- I would like to join snowmobile tour with my small children. Is it possible?‍

It is definitely possible. Most of our tours are suitable for children of all ages (please see specifications under each tour).

During the tour, children (and parents if they wish) are sitting in a sledge on reindeer hides and are covered by blankets so they stay warm and comfortable.

The sledge is pulled by the guide’s snowmobile – it takes some experience to do it safely and that is the reason why only the guide is allowed to pull the sledge.

If the child is at least 140 cm tall, he/she can also sit on the snowmobile behind the adult. In this case he/she has to pay the price of an adult.

- Can i drink alcohol before or during tours?

Before and during activities on the multi-day and/or snowmobile tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.

After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.

Please note that Finnish law prohibits driving a snowmobile under the influence of alcohol or any narcotic product. As responsible tour operators, we reserve the right to change the route and duration of the tour if deemed advisable for the sake of safety and comfort of the participants. We also reserve the right to discontinue the tour if a participant is seen as a potential danger to him/herself or to others, or is in poor health.

- Do i need special skills to drive a snowmobile?‍

Riding a snowmobile is easy but you should consider your experience and skills when selecting a tour. Start with easy and short ones (skill levels are pointed out on program description) to get more experience, after which you can choose the longer and more sporty ones if  you wish. The main limits for snowmobiling come from the law: you need to be minimum 15 years old and hold a valid driving license – A1, T, A or B category (please check that it is valid in Finland!). For longer tours, you need to be at least 18 years old or travel together with a family member who is willing to take full responsibility of you during the tour.

Please note that Finnish law prohibits driving a snowmobile under the influence of alcohol or any narcotic product. As responsible tour operators, we reserve the right to change the route and duration of the tour if deemed advisable for the sake of safety and comfort of the participants. We also reserve the right to discontinue the tour if a participant is seen as a potential danger to him/herself or to others, or is in poor health.
