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.
