What to expect
  • This snowmobile safari is specialised for families with little children. We will go for the ride on the forest trails around Santa Claus Village area, where parents can ride their own snowmobile and children are travelling in the sleigh pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. Children over 140 cm in height are allowed to sit on the snowmobile when paying the adult price. You will enjoy the beautiful wintery scenery, during the way we will make several stops to admire snowy nature. After adult-snowmobiling, it is time for children to have more fun. We arrive at a special area, where it is safe for children to ride on their own on a mini-snowmobile. Self-riding is suitable for children up to 11 – 12 years; small kids will be helped by the guide. At the same time the guide will light up a bonfire and we will enjoy a picnic where everyone can grill traditional Finnish “makkara” sausages and enjoy Lappish berry juice to keep you warm.

That was a blast! If you are a family with children and you wanna experience snowmobiles, this is the best tour for it!

Wild Nordic Finland gives you all the equipment, so no need to worry about that.

I and my husband shared a snowmobile, but because the ride is about 1-1,5 hours we both had enough time to drive it.

The child is seated in the special sleight after the guide's snowmobile and it feels like a cool rollercoaster (I tried )))) In the middle of the ride, the guide took our child to ride with him on an adult snowmobile, our son loved it very much.

We made a couple of stops to enjoy the view and even saw wild deer crossing the road.

At the end of the trip, there is a small snowmobile that children can drive themselves.

Super cool, this is definitely a trip for people who love adrenaline and new things, highly recommended!

Dear Sightsee36292, thank you for your feedback for our Family Snowmobile Safari. This activity is aimed towards families with children and it is absolutely a best seller as it combines fun for adults and fun for children. However, the safari is aimed mostly towards the children audience, so the emphasis is that there are more breaks during snowmobiling where our guides make snow fights, teach clients about how to walk in meter deep snow and make snowmen. The idea of the first part of the Family snowmobiling safari is to have the snowmobiling fun for adults and small breaks where kids can enjoy snow activities in the forest full of snow, in the amounts most kids have rarely seen. The second part of the safari is aimed for children to have a drive with the mini snowmobile for children and there is a safe track built for this purpose where the adults can enjoy a campfire and the children can drive a mini skidoo. We have several of those and we use a different number of mini skidoo's depending on the size of the group. As our groups are small when it comes to participant number, we focus on all kids having enough time to enjoy the mini skidoo. During the time the guide is focusing on the children, the parents (and also children) can enjoy sausages, Marshmallows, berry juice and the warmth of the fire. If the children are excited to do more, we also have a second track, which is open for tourists and public and anyone can buy the mini skidoo ticket for more mini skidoo fun. The ticket is also a driver's license for the kid with his own name on it and it is definitely an activity where kids have a lot of fun. Have a Happy New Year and all the best in 2020, With kindest regards, Ana, Wild Nordic Finland

We did the three hour snowmobile safari and it was so exciting and fun-packed it felt like three days! The whole experience of learning to drive a snowmobile was utterly exhilarating and one we will never forget. But what really made it was the member of the team who took us. Niko made it truly magical - particularly in terms of ensuring our nine year old daughter had an unforgettable time. Thanks to Niko, after just a few hours, we left with incredible memories that will last a lifetime and our daughter feeling like she had gained a big brother! Thank you Niko and all the team at Wild Nordic.

We did a Family Snowmobile Safari on the Christmas eve. We were lucky in the sense that it was only 3 families all together which made the experience very personal. Our instructor Niko was fantastic with the kids. There were lots of games in the snow that Niko played with the kids. We thoroughly enjoyed roasting marshmallows over the open fire and riding their own mini snow mobile. It was truly magical and unforgettable. Thank you very much Niko for building our family memories!!

All staff are friendly and enthusiastic. Special mention to Michael our group leader. He was super friendly and informative. Our son was in children buggy being towed by one of the staff which he enjoyed. Towards the end of the tour children get to have a go on a smaller snowmobile before having traditional Finnish hotdog around the campfire.

This was an excellent experience and certainly worthwhile. The forest and landscape was picturesque and the overall snowmobile ride served as great fun for the whole family.

A massive thank you to Lorenzo our guide. Lorenzo truely went above and beyond during the experience. When my little boy was cold towards the end of the ride, Lorenzo gave him both his own gloves and an extra jacket to ensure he remained warm; an amazing gesture. I would highly recommend this activity.
