Family Day: Snowmobile, Arctic Animals, And Santa Village One-day tour

Our partner: Arctic Circle Snowmobile Park


Snowmobiling in the wilderness and playing with the snow is already an experience itself, but this safari also takes you to meet reindeer and husky dogs. You will hear information about these beautiful animals at both farms and enjoy a short ride (500 m) in reindeer farm and 2 km husky sledding in husky farm. The energy and joy of the husky dogs, who are born to run, is difficult to describe - you must see for yourself! Petting the animals is also possible.

Once you are back from the farm visits, you will be served a buffet lunch in a local restaurant and have some free time to explore Santa Claus Village. You will be able to experience the Christmas atmosphere, cross the Arctic Circle, meet Santa Claus, visit the Post office and do gift shopping. Your day with us will start and end with a transfer from and to your accommodation within Rovaniemi city.

Children 5-12 yrs old are able to have a go by mini snowmobile on our supervised track.

This excursion is suited for everybody, but a driving license is required to drive a snowmobile. Children and adults without valid drivers licenses can join the safari comfortably seated on a sledge behind the snowmobile.
