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 resort 10 min away 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 on request departures are available throughout the winter season, 1.12.2020 – 31.3.2021, or due to prevailing weather and snow conditions. On request departures are operated for min 2 persons paying the adult fare (2 persons / snowmobile).
NB! At reindeer and husky farms, the clients share the slots with other guests also on private reservations.
Two-hour husky safari Meet the Huskies, Premium Combo, Snowmobiles and Huskies Galore, Meet the Reindeer and Highlights of your Arctic Journey are available on a fully private basis for min.10 adults (husky) and min. 8 adults (reindeer).
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.
