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.
Snowmobile tours start and end in Safari Center (Joulupukintie 1) located next to Santa Claus Village. You can skip the return transfer and continue your visit to Santa.

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

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.
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.
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.
This snowmobile safari is specialized for families with little children.
Experience snowmobile driving while travelling at night through the magical arctic wilderness. Given extra light by the white snow reflection or the stars and the moon, we follow the snowmobile trails away from city lights and look for a place to admire the sky.
This is a full day snowmobile tour for those who really want to do snowmobiling and experience the best of Lapland wilderness. The tour takes you further from the usual safari trails as we ride our snowmobiles in the north direction from Santa Claus Village.
