Full description

Snowmobiling in the wilderness and playing in the snow is already an experience, however this safari also takes you to meet reindeer and husky dogs. Start and end with a transfer to and from your accommodation within Rovaniemi city.

Hear about these beautiful animals at the farm and enjoy a 500-meter reindeer sleigh ride and 800-meter husky sleigh ride. 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.

Be served a salmon soup lunch at the restaurant. When you return to the office you will have some free time to explore Santa Claus Village. You will be able to experience the Christmas atmosphere, step across the Arctic Circle, meet Santa Claus, visit the post office and do some gift shopping.

    We were in Rovaniemi in the middle of the January and it was really cold at the time. It was down to -33 degrees. We were in doubt wether to book the tour or not. We decided to book and it was the best decision ever. Our guide Tiina was extremely friendly and felxible. Since the it was so cold that the snwomobiles didn’t start in the morning so we rode them in the afternoon and used a car in the morning to visit the reindeer and husky farms. The local farm guides were also friendly and gave us a lot of insights about the animals. Especially I liked the reindeer guide Arttu. For lunch we were offeres traditional lappish salmon soup which was delicious and really warmed us up in the cold day. We recommend to book the tour. There’s no cold weather, it’s all about the right clothing *wink wink*
