ON SNOWMOBILES FROM AIRPORT TO HOTEL
This safari could be a surprise! Get dressed in the special thermal clothing in the terminal of Ivalo Airport. After a short but thorough instruction by the safari guides you start your snowmobile safari right from the airport to Saariselkä, some 40-km southwards. Your luggage will transport directly to your hotel. It is amazingly easy to ride on a snowmobile along the trail that follows ancient routes of Sámi people over snow-covered fells. A snack of sandwiches and hot beverage will enjoy in the silence of the nature.

MAGIC OF THE NATURE
Saariselkä area is rightly calling “the last wilderness in Europe”. The magnificent landscape of fells combined with pine forest in river-valleys extends endlessly all the way to the Russian border. On a snowmobile safari one can truly admire the peaceful and primeval panoramic scenery from the tops of the fells. Strong, black coffee or reindeer burgers or soup lunch are served around campfire.

SNOW AND FUN GAMES
A day full of excitement and fun in the Arctic! Start off from Saariselkä on snowmobiles along the route through snow-covered pine-forest to Lake Kolmikanta. The unique winter fun games take place on the frozen lake. Test the arctic skills of your team in activities like quad bike riding, mini-ski doo slaloming, tandem skiing, reindeer lassoing, and snow-shoe running and pitching a "kota" - a Lapp tepee. Hot berry juice served by a camp fire. After the exhilarating games get together around an open fire for a lunch of salmon soup and a mug of coffee. Before returning back to the hotel the best team will award with a special ceremony.

THE WISPER FROM THE SNOWY FELLS
We change into safari outfit at the safari club; overall, socks, shoes, mittens, balaclavas and helmets. After a short driving lesson we head our snowmobiles to the treeless fells and snow-covered forests enjoying the beautiful wilderness scenery. On the way we’ll make a short coffee break by open fire in a hideaway cottage listening to the quietness of the wilds of Lapland. Duration of the trip is approx. 3 h.

THE CALL OF THE WILD
We pick you up from the hotel, change into safari gear at safari club and learn the driving and safety rules. Then we follow our guide to the fells. The magnificent scenery of the treeless tundra changes into inhabited forest as we drive on well groomed snowmobiling trails. For lunch we stop at our hideaway cottage by a wilderness lake. There, sitting cozy in the glow of open fire and twinkling candles we’ll enjoy a true Lapp lunch, prepared on the open fire. After desert we’ll continue our tour back to Saariselkä. Duration of the trip is approx. 4-4,5 hours.
