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.

This is a good ride, covering forested area, frozen River, in the tunnel. 2 hours is most idea as l hrs is too short while more than that would be boring. It was fun for the ride in Snow White.

Really professional place, they provide you with almost all the gear and iformation that you need. We've taken 3 safaris with them: Snowmobile, Husky farm and Reindeer + Santa. All great experiences. The only points I didnt particularly enjoyed were: - Snowmobile had only 1 guide. I didnt feel very safe, if something happened to the last snowmobiles not sure... More

I did two activities with lapland safaris. Snowmobile and watching for the northern light. The snowmobile drive in the wildness for two hours is very fun. The guide is very friendly and love to crack jokes. For the northern light, we did not managed to see it that night. But yet it is an experience to me. Both my activities... More

We participated in 4 Lapland welcome safaris: husky farm and reindeer farm, northern lights, and moose watching. It was the off-season so we were really nervous about finding something to do. However, we went there in the morning and were able to set up and pay for everything we wanted to do. They were on time with all of our... More

My friend and I did the Aurora Borealis snow mobile safari on a Saturday and during the break, when we attempted to see the skies (it was cloudy), we were serve sausages. The next morning my friend and I both were throwing up and feeling miserable. So a word of advice: Don't eat the sausages.

Lapland Safaris has perfected the art of running safaris. They were organised and professional, if slightly impersonal. We were shepherded through 3 different rooms to put on the overall outfit. I joined their Husky Safari and there were 17 (a lot) of us on this tour. Clear instructions were provided to us before the safari through a worn out course.... More

I'm not a big fan of organised things in general, but having said that it can be a perfect solution if one doesn't have enough time or experience to organise things on ones own. My family and me went on several tours (Reindeer, Husky sleigh, Cross Country skiing, Snowmobile and the Artic Ice Hotel) and I couldn't recommend Lapland Safaris... More

We used Lapland Safaris for all our winter activities and our guide ARI was absolutely brilliant. I could not recommend him more. He even jumped into a cold lake Finnish style (Goole it). What an amazing and helpful guy and what an amazing experience it was zipping across a frozen lake at 90+kph. An experience I will never forget. If... More

Good organization of activities, professional Finnish staff with good Finnish sense of humor. Well organized activities like ice fishing, snowmobile rides etc. for some activities we used local maps where scale was inaccurate. Well, it just added to the fun of it.
