Type: Tours, Adventure
Owner description: Our story starts in Rovaniemi with two mates, who in 1982 had four snowmobiles and a desire to share the beautiful sceneries of Lapland with other people. The plan was to arrange adventures that guests would remember for life. The pair decided to offer customers something new: meticulously organised adventures in the wilderness nature of Lapland. The market welcomed this concept with open arms and Lapland Safaris began to grow both in reputation and in size. Nowadays we are the most experienced and reputable safari company in Finland operating in Rovaniemi, Levi, Ylläs, Saariselkä and Olos.

Artificial instead of artic experience. 20 snowscooters in a row, 11 km of ride and 3 hours duration. Really bad experience not inline with safari video in the safari shop. To toeristic. If have been before in Rovaniemi never on safari and not again. Even skipped next day prepaid snowshoe safari .. Afraid for same experience can use time better.

I traveled to Finland with a tour group that used Lapland Safaris for a variety of activities. We went dog sledding, snowmobiling, and reindeer sledding (dog sledding was AWESOME). The activities were AMAZING. It was such a wonderful experience and the tour guides were INCREDIBLE. On each excursion we met staff that were super friendly, and very knowledgable. It was... More

I signed up the Koruoma hike with. Lapland Welcome and it was fantastic. The park is picturesque with snow covered everywhere. The ice falls looks stunning in the winter. The tour guide is professional and knowledgeable. Overall, it's a wonderful trip.

We had quite a few activities planned with Lapland Safaris and I have to say, it was an amazing experience. From the front-desk to the various well-informed tour-guides, we were met and treated with absolute warmth. Plus, the snowsuits were pitch perfect, protecting us adequately from the snow and ensuring that we had a great time.

WOW WOW WOW.. Having read reviews on here AFTER I had booked with transun , I was a little worried that I had just wasted £1500, no need to worry what so ever, from getting on the plane where they had Christmas music playing and all the children singing along, to landing at enontekio airport to -6 degrees which without...

Last Saturday me and my partner went to the Safari "In the Heart of Nature". It was incredible, we spent a great time with our guide, Ismo (an outstanding professional as well as a great person), and we felt really pampered by his kindness. Our guide picked up us in our hotel in the morning and brought us to Lapland... More

we had a fantastic time on our holiday. Thomson contracted Lapland Safaris for all of our excursions and day trips. Iggy Igloo was our appointed Elf. He was fantastic, keeping us informed and entertained during our trip. Thanks Iggy, you really helped make our Lapland holiday unforgettable.

We went on the trip of a life time to Lapland. The atmosphere was building from the moment we got on the plane in Dublin. Landing was even better. The airport was small and covered in snow. You really got the feeling that this was the place where Santa lives. As we went out to the buses, the elves were... More

I've tried to book some safaris the third week of november but neither in Saariselka nor in Rovaniemi it was possible. In Saariselka it has been snowing a lot so Husky and Reindeer safaris weren't available; in Rovaniemi there wasn't enough snow for safaris. Aurora borealis wouldn't probably be visible that week so no trip was available for admiring it.... More

First of all, I am really glad to hear that you were able to experience even some safaris with our dear competitor and your trip to Lapland was not totally ruined. And it is true that, although starting from December our selection of guaranteed safari departures (even for single travelers) is probably the largest in Lapland, on third week of... More
