ABOUT THIS TOUR

After following the forest tracks to one of the frozen lakes or rivers, the guide will signal a longer break and it is time to test your luck at ice fishing, the favourite hobby of many laplanders. Ice fishing equipment is unpacked and after a little walk on the ice, you will learn how to drill a hole and set your fishing hook. You will also have the chance to grill sausages and enjoy hot juice around the campfire. After packing the ice fishing equipment back on snowmobiles it is time to head towards Santa Claus Village again.

Duration of the program is 3 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.

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!

- How to dress right and feel comfortable in Winter?

1. Start with thermal underwear and warm socks.

2. If it’s really cold, –20 or below, wear an additional fleece layer on top of your thermals. Another pair of socks, preferably woolly or thermal, will keep your feet warm.

3. Wear pants with thermal lining. Don’t underestimate the importance of a neck warmer or a scarf. Slip into your winter boots and do them up well.

4. Almost done! Throw on your winter jacket, put on a warm hat and thermal gloves. Don’t forget to tuck your gloves into your sleeves and zip your jacket ALL the way up

Nordic Adventures is also happy to rent out the winter clothing for 25 €/person/day.

- It says you need a minimum of 2 people paying full price to join a safari. I am travelling alone and do not want to pay extra. What can i do?

You can join an already scheduled safari where we have other participants. This way you only pay for yourself.

Please let us know (info@nordicadventures.fi) the dates when you would like to join the activities and we will be happy to make it happen.

- Do you provide transportation to your adventures?

Most of our tours (please see specifications under each tour) include transfers from accommodation in Rovaniemi city area. It is included in the adventure price. Transfers from accommodation places located further out from the city (for example Arctic Snow Hotel, Apukka Resort, Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge Resort) can be arranged at an additional cost.  

The pick up is usually 5-20 min before the start of the safari (time in your voucher). Transportation back is immediately after the end of the safari.

We try to provide exact pickup time one day before the start of the tour by email or text message/whats-app, which is why it is important that you provide your valid email and phone number when booking a tour.

- How do the children travel on snowmobile safaris?

All children will sit in a sleigh pulled by the guide for safety reasons. Children taller than 140cm can sit behind their parents on a snowmobile when paying an adult price. We do not recommend long snowmobile safaris for small children.‍

- Can i drive a snowmobile?

Riding a snowmobile is easy but you should consider your experience and skills when selecting a safari. 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 safaris, 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 safari organizers, we reserve the right to change the route and duration of the safari if deemed advisable for the sake of safety and comfort of the participants. We also reserve the right to discontinue the safari if a participant is seen as a potential danger to him/herself or to others, or is in poor health.
