Join this tour to experience a wonderful afternoon combining snowmobiling and ice fishing. You will start by driving away from the busiest tracks near Santa Claus Village, led by your guide. After following the forest tracks to one of the frozen lakes or rivers, the guide will signal a longer break and it is time to test your luck at ice fishing, the favourite hobby of many laplanders. Ice fishing equipment is unpacked and after a little walk on the ice, you will learn how to drill a hole and set your fishing hook. You will also have the chance to grill sausages and enjoy hot juice around the campfire. After packing the ice fishing equipment back on snowmobiles it is time to head towards Santa Claus Village again.
Duration of the program is 3 hours, including preparations. The riding time on snowmobiles is approximately 1 hour and 30 – 40 minutes. The average speed during our short tours is limited due to the safety and traffic regulations. Two adults ride on one snowmobile, single riding supplement for an extra charge. Children are traveling in the sleigh pulled by the guide’s snowmobile.
Snowmobile tours start and end in Wild Nordic Safari Center (Joulupukintie 1) located next to Santa Claus Village. You can skip the return transfer and continue your visit to Santa.
