Driving through the dark landscapes is an awesome experience itself but if the sky is clear and you are lucky, you can experience the beautiful show of northern lights, a star studded sky or mystical full moon. Our goal is a wilderness camp at a location where you have clear view on the northern sky. Good stories, a tasty snack and hot beverages are guaranteed, even if the Auroras would fail us tonight!

Pick-up transfers & durations
All our safaris include pick-up service from Rovaniemi city center, Santa Claus Village and Ounasvaara. From hotels and accommodations in and around Rovaniemi city center, the guests are asked to walk to our safari house. From the safari-house we shuttle to our snowmobile site or depart for the excursion.
The mentioned duration of the safari is the actual time of the excursion. The total duration is app. 60-90 minutes longer than the mentioned duration, as we transfer and equip you.
The exact time for pick-ups will be advised at the time of booking.
All daily departures are available throughout the winter season, 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 2 persons / snowmobile). To book a private tour, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. 1 500 € / snowmobile. With a self-liability waiver (25 €) you reduce the self-liability to max 350 € / 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.
