Arctic Circle Snowmobile Safari for Beginners in Rovaniemi

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    This short tour is suitable for everyone who has never driven a snowmobile before. For families with children, children travel in a sleigh pulled by your guide's snowmobile. It's important to know the driver of a snowmobile has to be at least 15 years old and hold a valid driver license.

    Snowmobile safaris start and end in the tour office located at the Santa Claus Village. During your ride, admire the nature of Lapland, in the heart of the Arctic Circle.

    Cruise through the snow-covered ground, and practice your driving skills. Because this tour is for beginners, you can go at your own pace and not feel overwhelmed.

    The scenery was spectaluar. We were lucky enough to be blessed with a sunny day even though it was about -30 celcius. Highly recommend this activity. Just beautiful and lots of fun, so much so that you don't even realise how cold it is until the safari is over.
