Winter Adventure in northernmost Lapland

Winter Adventure in northernmost Lapland

Join on a  tour driving north from Rovaniemi with our local guide Eero to experience winter adventures in amazing landscape of north-western Lapland. 

Your driver-guide Eero is a Finnish wilderness guide and tourism research student at the University of Lapland. He will drive you from Rovaniemi to Hetta. On the way you will stop to take an e-snowmobiling safari and a reindeer sleigh ride or alteratively ice-karting race. After dropping you on a husky safari Eero will leave and you will take a bus further to Kilpisjärvi, stay in aglass igloo and continue by bus to Tromso. 

Activities:

Visit to the Arktikum museum  is just to prepare you for the journey through the winter landscape all the way up to northern Norway. 

Ice-floating starts the flow of Arctic experiences. This guided adventure is safe with a high-quality rescue suit that covers your whole body and keeps you dry. As you have your own clothing under the suit you will not get cold even in the open 0-degree water. Lying down in the ice hole between the ice blocks is something worth trying, the circumstances truly are arctic!

Silent Snowmobiling Safari near Rovaniemi is the first stop. This snowmobiling safari is driven with the only electronic snowmobiles in the world and gives you a unique opportunity to listen to the sounds of the arctic while enjoying the drive in the snowy landscapes.

Magic of Winter Husky Safari takes you to the frozen lakes in the middle of the arctic nature and lets you enjoy the pure air and beautiful views. The safari will be driven in two people sledges so that you can just enjoy the views while sitting in the sleigh and you also get to feel the power of the huskies while you are the "musher". 

Snow Shoeing Tour to Saana fell is a semi demanding tour to the top if the Saana fell that rises over 1000m above sea level. When reaching the top, the effort is definitely appreciated with the endless views of the harch arctic landscape. Snow shoeing itself is quite easy and the previous day we will try them out and give a little go on the deeper snow. Your guide will make time for stops along the way to have some snacks and hot juice. 

Ice Fishing on a frozen lake is a traditional way of fishing in the winter in the artic. You will be teached how to do it and hopefully you catch some fish too!
