ABOUT THIS TOUR
We will go for the ride on the forest trails around Santa Claus Village area, where parents can ride their own snowmobile and children are traveling in the sleigh pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. Children over 140 cm in height are allowed to sit on the snowmobile when paying the adult price.
You will enjoy the beautiful wintery scenery, during the way we will make several stops to admire snowy nature. After adult-snowmobiling, it is time for children to have more fun. We arrive at a special area, where it is safe for children to ride on their own on a mini-snowmobile. Self-riding is suitable for children up to 11 – 12 years; small kids will be helpedby the guide. At the same time the guide will light up a bonfire and we will enjoy a picnic where everyone can grill traditional Finnish “makkara” sausages and enjoy Lappish berry juice to keep you warm.
