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.

So great experience: they set you up with proper equipment and teach you quickly what there is to know to start a great Arctic wild experience. Don't miss it, that's a great way to learn what lapland life could be in the snow, ice and the wild. The team there is very nice and they take excellent care of the... More

Being a kid...this is the perfect place to be at Christmas. Actually, being an adult, I think it's a pretty perfect place to be too! I remember, my Dad, whisking me off my feet, as we left the plane, he chucked me into a snowdrift! Nice one Dad! Love you too haha...freezing! I remember this being the most coldest place... More

We did a snow mobile tour out into the forest at night to see the northern lights, About 25kms round trip. You ride the snow mobiles yourself, pretty simple. There is a rear seat for your partner or kids. To drive them you had to be over 18, have a license (Australian accepted) and sign a waiver. You can also... More

I went on a day trip to Lapland when my daughter was 8years old, this place is magical, we did husky rides, visited Santa in his workshop, and many other activities, I would highly recommend this for a once in a lifetime trip, scenery alone was incredible, just make sure you wrap up warm

We hired the services of Arctic Circle Snowmobile Park Oy Ltd in Rovaniemi. Great service and unforgettable experience. Started with a snowmobile ride to Reindeer farm for an hour. What a sight! Snow glitter like diamonds in wilderness until we get to meet our reindeer. Had a ride of a lifetime with a reindeer. Followed by a husky safari....beautiful huskies!... More

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!! The worst experience we had in our two week stay in Rovaneimi. We went on the Santa's Hideaway tour. The staff are college students that have ZERO people skills. There were two buses with upwards of 100 people on the tour. We all waited on the bus for 15 minutes past our scheduled departure time... More

A great way to arrive at santas village. The ride through the forest was magical. The staff were great picking us up last minute from a hotel as we couldn't find the office. My four year old daughter remembered the reindeer safari more than Santa on the trip home! Educational for adults as well. Would recommend!
