Daily & Weekly Departures Winter

We are proud to introduce our guests to the arctic lifestyle, regardless of how short or long your stay is. Our aim is to give our guests “a piece of local ambiance” to carry in their memories. Our daily departures of Lapland lifestyle safaris and excursions give you a taste of the north, wether you are traveling with your family, friends or as a couple.

Huskies and snowmobiles galore! 3,5 hrs

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 nice distance on snowmobiles and enjoy the winter landscapes. At some scenic spots we make a stop for some photos. The tour ends up at Lumi Husky Camp, where the dogs are waiting to take you for a speedy 5 km 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.

Includes:
- return transfers from your accommodation in Ounasvaara or Santa Claus Village and a pick-up point in city center Rovaniemi
- winter clothing 
- guided excursion according to program description and given information

Supplement:
Self-liability waiver 19 € / person.

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, 1.12.2019 – 31.3.2020, 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 8 persons (adult fare 2 persons / snowmobile).

Snowmobile safaris
Our snowmobiles are locally produced, BRP Lynx Rave and Xtrim–models. 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.

Children travel in a sledge pulled by 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.

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 (19 €) you reduce the self-liability to max 299 € / snowmobile. Every safari starts with instructions on driving and safety.

You will always be kitted with proper winter gear: thermal overall, boots, woollen socks, balaclavas and gloves or mittens for our safaris and excursions. Your own jacket and shoes remain at the safari house during the tour.

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