Lapland Adventure: 445km Snowmobile and 4h Husky safaris in March

Lapland Adventure: 445km Snowmobile and 4h Husky safaris in March

So bright, beautiful and sparkly blanket of white snow covers smoothly the limitless nature. Experience the untouchable routes of the arctic wilderness, the wild and cruel nature in it’s true and breath taking beauty. In a small group of maximum 8 participants,  it is possible to be flexible and go on based on the skills of the drivers. PLEASE NOTE! Minimum group size 4, maximum 8.

Snowmobile adventure  starts from Saariselkä ski village,  where you will first get your snowmobiles and clothing. Your guide has over 20 years of  experience of  this wilderness area, so you are in trusted company. You'll hear a lot of interesting stories, too.  Your daily driving distance varies between  70 and 170 km on Tour de Arctica routes and will be in total 445km in 4 days. You will stay in double rooms in wilderness hotels or guesthouses with dinner served in teh evenings. During the daytime we are keeping breaks as you n and each can eat as lightly or heavily as you want.

An Arctic wild food dinner at Design House Idoli, which is a unique setting full of Finnish design located by lake Inari.  A private dinner is prepared in front of you in a unique milieu surrounded by the best Finnish design and selected pieces of art. After enjoying for a full 4-course gourmet dinner you will sit in a Lappish hut made of glass and enjoy a cup of coffee avec. Winter nights look amazing here with or without northern lights.

Sled-dog ride  will end your 5-day visit in a great and a bit different way compared to snowmobiling. On a 4-hour husky safari you will share a team of huskies with your partner so the other one can on her/his turn concentrate in enjoying the scenery. Each husky is a different character, they love people but also love to run and pull the sleigh. After the safari you'll have some time for refreshing in a your hotel's sauna before transportation back to the Ivalo airport.
