  • Rovaniemi: Snowmobile Tour with Reindeer Farm Experience

    1. Rovaniemi: Snowmobile Tour with Reindeer Farm Experience

    Begin the day's adventure with hotel pickup in Rovaniemi. Before setting off on the tour, your professional guide will demonstrate how to correctly handle the snowmobiles. Cruise along through the snowy terrain, led by your guide the entire way. Arrive to the reindeer farm, where local herders will share insights on the herding lifestyle and what it is like to be a reindeer herder in the 21st century. After a briefing from the herders, drive your own reindeer sledge on a short, 1,640-foot-long ride. Your newly obtained skills will be rewarded with a reindeer-sledge driver's license, which you can take home as a fun souvenir. To round off the experience and defrost a bit, enjoy warm refreshments at the farm.

    We had an amazing trip, one could think that due to the lack of tourists they would provide less to save on costs but it actually felt like a VIP personal trip! They have put in the effort for just the 2 of us as they would for a large group. Couldn't recommend more.

    2. From Rovaniemi: Northern Lights Sleigh Ride

    Escape the city lights of Rovaniemi and travel by comfortable sleigh to an area without any light pollution. Wrap up in the provided blankets as you follow the trails through the winter landscape pulled by a snowmobile. Benefit from short stops to take photos of the miracle of nature. Look up into the sky in search of the stunning natural effects of the Northern Lights. On nights when the lights appear, witness a miraculous dance across the sky of vibrant lights of different colors.

    It was an amazing experience and we all enjoyed it very much. We did not see the Northern lights on the night we went out but still it was a great experience.

We had lots of fun!

We were on the nightly "hunt" for northern lights on a frozen lake, quite far away from Rovaniemi. It was totally spectacular. We have never had such a good view of the stars. On the way we found them then: Northern Lights. Only weak, but they were there. Later in the evening they became so strong that we even could photograph strong lights at our hotel. The nocturnal sleigh ride is a great adventure and I would recommend it to anyone. But beware: it must be clear in the night sky.

We just have to come back again!

We didn't see the northern lights but the warmer weather that the cloudy conditions helped with made up for it! We took a sleigh ride into a frozen lake in the middle of nowhere on our own with the guide in the dark. The adrenaline was going and despite the lack of northern lights we had a thought provoking, life-changing experience. Thank you

Unfortunately we didn't see the Northern Lights, but the guide was fantastic! Really good and fun trip anyway!

We did not see dawn but the ride was really worth it.
