On our ice fishing safari to lake Lehtojärvi you will learn the sercets of the ice fishing which is a popular pastime in Finland. First, we will ride our silent eSleds a couple of kilometres on frozen lake Lehtojärvi to find some good spots for ice fishing. Our professional guides will show you how to thrill a hole through thick ice and you will learn to tempt fishes under the ice with a special ice fishing rod. On this safari, you can also really enjoy the silence and the beauty of the pure Lappish nature around you. This safari offers you a nice combination of eSled drive and ice fishing experience on the beautiful lake of Lehtojärvi.

Safari Clothing Recommendation:
The best way to dress up for eSled safari is to dress in layers. If there is not enough clothing, your hands and feet will cool down first and gradually the whole body.
Aurora eMotion always provides a helmet and a proper, warm winter clothing: (jacket, trousers, boots, woolen socks, mittens, balaclava and scarf) for the eSled – Safari.
eSled – Electric Snowmobile Safari:
A truly unique experience The eSled – electric snowmobile is an innovative new way to experience the Arctic splendor without disturbing the silent peace of wintry nature. We are the first company in the world offering electric snowmobile safaris, a sustainable way of experiencing and exploring the purity and silence of the Lappish nature.
Connect with nature The electric motor of the eSled is silent, and the only little sound comes from the snowmobile skis and a spinning track while sliding on snow and ice. During the safaris you can enjoy the fresh and clean air of Lapland and perhaps even see a herd of reindeer making their way in the forest. Thanks to its precise electric drive, the eSled is easy to handle while enjoying your journey in the snowy landscape. The Northern Lights are an unpredictable natural phenomenon and our evening safaris are made to give you a chance to observe them, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that they will appear.
Please Note: One driver of one snowmobile must always be at least 18 years of age and a driver’s license is recommended for all drivers. According to the Finnish law, a driver’s license is not required on our normal safaris because of using private routes and properties. However, we always recommend all drivers to have driver’s license. Finnish law prohibits driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or any other intoxicating drug. The driver is held liable for damages caused to the vehicle. The maximum personal liability is 990 € / accident case.
