HUSKIES AND SNOWMOBILE GALORE!

5 hrs. snowmobile safari 
Daily departure 10:00 

The thrill of snowmobiling and the speed of husky sleigh ride all in one - this must be a lucky day! 

We drive a good distance from Rovaniemi on snowmobiles; to a wilderness husky farm where the dogs are waiting to take you for a speedy 20 minutes ride in their sledges. The sleigh takes one passenger and one driver, or musher as we call it. There will be a chance to swap places during the outing. After the ride you have time to get familiar with the dogs and hear about their daily life. The visit is topped off with a tasty snack and hot drinks by the fire, after which we head back to Rovaniemi.

What we say about this tour: 

“Huskies are the favourite arctic animals of most of our guests. They are friendly to everyone, greeting everyone with the same enthusiasm – apart from being awfully cute. On this excursion you will get a good feel for mushing a team of huskies as well as a decent snowmobile experience. 

We would recommend this safari for friends, couples and families with a bit older children.” 

 

Practical information: 

All daily departures are available throughout the winter season, 1.12.2017– 31.3.2018, or due to prevailing weather and snow conditions. Daily Departures are operated for min 2 persons paying the adult fare (2 persons / snowmobile). Private excursions are available for min 6 persons (adult fare). 

The snowmobiles and you as the snowmobile driver or passenger are covered by our insurance. The self-liability on damage of snowmobiles is max. 1 000 € / snowmobile. With a self-liability waiver (29 €) you reduce the self-liability to max 299 € / snowmobile. 

All our snowmobile safaris include pick-up service from accommodations in Rovaniemi town, Santa Claus Village and Ounasvaara. We will inform you on the pick up time, which is 45-30 min before departure time, depending on the location of the accommodation. You will first be taken to our safari house, where you get the outdoor gear and where you can leave your jacket and shoes for the time of the safari. You will always be kitted with proper winter gear: thermal overall, boots, woollen socks, balaclavas and gloves or mittens for our safaris and excursions. 

The duration of the actual safari, the time we drive snowmobiles, is the time mentioned in the excursion. The total duration is app. 45-60 minutes longer than the given time, as we transfer and equip you. Every safari starts with instructions on driving and safety. 

Children travel in a sledge pulled by your snowmobile or the guide’s snowmobile. In case a child prefers to travel as a passenger of a snowmobile, he / she must be tall enough to reach the handles and treads and strong enough to hold on tight. When a child travels on the snowmobile and not in a sledge pulled by a snowmobile, adult price (2 person / snowmobile) applies. 

Our snowmobiles are locally produced, BRP Lynx Xtrim –model. We have selected this model, as they are extremely comfortable to drive and as they are gentle to the environment, they are practically smoke and smell free. 

Arctic Lifestyle reserves the right to change the price, program, inclusions and duration of each tour, due to weather conditions and unexpected occurrences.
