Day 2: Snowmobile Adventure & Handcraft Experience

A snowmobile ride is a highlight of any Arctic adventure, and not to be missed. After a brief introduction to safety and the controls of the snowmobiles, it’s time to set off on our state-or-art snowmobiles for your tailor-made excursion into the wild. Through forests and over hills packed with snow, you’ll drive deep into the wilderness where not many have been. You’ll get the chance to let rip across a frozen lake and experience the speed, the freedom and the adrenaline rush that can only be had when these thrilling machines roar over the snow.

After one-hour drive, we will stop for some warm drinks while visiting an exclusive handicraft workshop in true Lappish settings. As you step inside the cozy red cottage, you’ll be welcomed by one of the region’s best handicraft artisans.

After introducing you to some of the materials and methods she uses to make her delightful souvenirs, you’ll get a chance to make your own. Using the shed reindeer horns that can be found lying in the Lapland wilderness, you’ll learn how to craft your own unique horn souvenir to take home with you. Afterwards, we will drive back on the frozen river to Santa Village.

While a driving license is needed to operate a snowmobile, those without licenses get to enjoy being pulled along in a sleigh. Adults can also share a snowmobile with the driver as you ride through the beautiful snowy landscapes. We will also have mini-skidoos available for children, so they can try out driving themselves.

Day 3: Husky Sledding

 Are you ready to meet adorable husky dogs and feel the thrill of speed as you slide through the glittering snow?

At the husky farm, you’ll meet the dogs, their excited barks filling the air. You are provided with all the necessary equipment and taught how to drive a team of dogs. As you slide through the snow and into the wilderness, the barking of the dogs subsides, and all you can hear is the pounding of paws and the sound of the sledge on the snow. Standing on the runners, by placing your weight, the dogs turn, and you are entirely in the moment. The white and magical landscape slips by as the dogs pick up speed.

Afterwards you will have time to pet the dogs and enjoy hot drinks by a campfire in a cozy, Lappish ‘kota’ building.
