Overnight Snowmobile Trip
Snowmobiles are a way of life in the North; they provide a vital form of transport in an unforgiving landscape, which can sometimes be beyond the reach of other vehicles. They support an economy, they provide a lifeline to remote communities and have been embraced by traditional reindeer herders. They are also one of the most popular activities for guests to enjoy in these regions and many who initially experience the thrill of the trail on a shorter safari, simply have to return for more.
We have worked with our partners and carried our extensive reconnaissance to select the best and most varied snowmobile expeditions available in the areas in which we work. Each provides a different style of multi day expedition with a focus on a different purpose.Read more
We have overnight snowmobile safaris that last 5 days and lead you to the depths of the fells of Finnish Lapland and to the peak of the highest mountain in the region. Averaging between 120 – 150km a day, these are challenging adventures but the experience is definitely worth it.
We have expeditions that will allow you to perfect your snowmobiling skills in the deep powder fields of North West Finland. We also offer an overnight snowmobile adventure which can be combined with an overnight dog sled expedition – for those who cannot decide between these two activities.
All of these experiences include nights in wilderness accommodation – typically a cabin with no running water or electricity. They are basic in many ways but once the fire is lit and your expert safari guide has cooked your evening meal on the fire, they provide a true escape from the every day.
To get the most out of these holidays you need to have a good level of fitness as the trails can be technical and physically demanding, the days can be long and conditions can be changeable and challenging due to the nature of the wilderness you will encounter. We recommend that participants should be fans of exhilaration and have a sense of adventure to get the most from these trips. We simply cannot recommend them enough!
