  • Trip was fun, We as group had 6-8 km ride in tundra and woods to get to Fire and back. Since we were not expert snowmobile drives, plus at evening time riding was not as difficult but i guess not impo...  more »
  • A highly recommended excursion into the beautiful nature of Finland. Especially with our very good German-speaking guide Miikka. An unforgettable experience was the deep snow fun with the snowmobile. Through expert briefing by Miikka, no problem. We visited a reindeer farm afterwards, drove reindeer sleighs ourselves. After that, a very tasty buffet lunch in the Santa Claus village.

  • We did our snowmobile ride thru Arctic Lifestyle. From their main office in Rovaniemi, we went to the snowmobile ride place in their vehicle. We were given a special dress there for the ride and were taken to where snowmobiles were parked. The trainer girl was extremely enthusiastic. She explained us properly the snowmobile and its required functionalities. She was going to be in a different snowmobile that was going to be the first vehicle and our four vehicles were supposed to follow her in a queue (we were seven of us, so two per vehicle). She also told us the signals to be followed if we want to seek her attention, if we want to stop, etc. When the ride started, she ensured that she pays attention to all four vehicles of ours and was very proficient at it. When any of our vehicles used to deviate, she immediately used to stop all of us, get that vehicle back on track and then restart the journey for all. When we reached at one end, she asked everyone to stop to take a break. By then we had become somewhat more comfortable and were enjoying the ride. She then asked everyone to take a U-turn and get into the return journey. Track was very good. It was snow all around and trees by the side. We enjoyed this experience very much. Kudos to the trainer and to Arctic Lifestyle
  • We did the snowmobile tour to a reindeer farm. It was great fun, very well organized and our guide Frans gave us a great time by sharing much information about the landscape, wilderness and the lappish traditions.
