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.

We did the 3hour husky safari (with only 1h of actual husky safari) from 1pm-4pm. You go to the Lapland Safaris office where they give you nice and warm clothing (coat, shoes and socks and gloves) that you wear over your other clothes. Then they take you to their hidden husky camps thats near Santa's village but in the middle... More

Had today the Northern Light tour on snowmobile from 6pm to 9pm. Northern Light did not show up, but that is always a bit a thing of luck too. However the tour on snowmobile was fun enough, especially together with a nice stop in the wilderness with coffee and tee as well as grilled sausage and hot juice. The guides... More

On Christmas Day we went on a Santa Safari, visiting a reindeer farm, where we took part in an exciting Arctic Circle crossing ceremony, followed by a short reindeer sleigh ride. Dinner was provided consisting of Meatballs , mash potato and salad, absolutely brilliant... More

Finally got a chance to see polar bear freely roaming in a non-enclosed area. A guided tour around the safari will take about 1.5 hours to 2 hours depending on your walking speed and questions asked. It's in the middle of winter when we went so the safari was covered in thick white snow and freezing cold due to the... More

We stayed many days in Rovaniemi and we joined many different safaris. In all of them the organizational part was good. The procedure is always the same: you go to the office, you wait for your guide and he/she takes you to the changing room, where you get the needed equipment: socks, boots, overall, scarf, hat, gloves and when needed...

Hmmmm. That's the best way to start this review. I'm afraid jury's out as to whether I enjoyed the trip or not. There are some good bits and some negatives. I'll start with the negatives. Very long and tiring day, which I was expecting. But didn't stop it being tiring. I also thought it was very expensive for what you... More

We signed up northern light by car and on foot with Lapland Safaris. Since we just stayed beside Lapland Safaris, we just walked over to their office at 8:50pm. We waited 20 minutes at the reception there until all other participants arrived before we were brought to changing room. There were about 30 - 40 over people signed up for... More

We did two safaris with Lapland - the Family Husky Safari & the Snowmobiles to see the Northern Lights. And from the moment we entered they were just so amazing. The office was mammoth with several rooms. Each one focused on a different type of clothing. We were instructed to strip off our jackets and shoes and were provided warm... More
