Full description

Explore the Artic wilderness on this guided snowmobile tour from Rovaniemi. Keep warm with the provided winter clothing. Visit an authentic reindeer farm and experience the thrill of reindeer sledding. 

Begin the day's adventure with hotel pickup in Rovaniemi and relax as you take in the views on the drive. Put on the cozy winter gear at the snowmobile base camp and listen as your guide demonstrates how to correctly handle the snowmobiles. Cruise along through the snowy terrain, led by your guide the entire way. Arrive at the reindeer farm, where local herders will share insights on the herding lifestyle and what it is like to be a reindeer herder in the 21st century. Listen to a short briefing from the herders and then drive your own reindeer sledge on a 1,640-foot-long ride. Your newly obtained skills will be rewarded with a reindeer-sledge driver's license, which you can take home as a fun souvenir.

Warm up at the farm with some toasty and comforting refreshments before returning to your accommodation in Rovaniemi.

    The tour was amazing! The guide picked us up at the scheduled time from our hotel and we went to Vila do Santa Claus to change clothes. After a brief explanation of how to drive the motorcycle, the tour began. The place was very beautiful. We arrived at the reindeer farm and took the sleigh ride which was also very good!! Afterwards, around a fire, explanations about the reindeer were given, and delicious tea and cake were offered. I highly recommend this tour, as you combine two very cool activities!

    Super nice route with the snowmobile to the reindeer farm. At the reindeer farm we got some information about the reindeer around a fire, we also got a drink and a cinnamon roll. We had the opportunity to switch drivers along the way. We had a nice guide and we were able to continue driving! A very nice experience!

    The overall experience was very good, and the tour guide was very friendly and helpful. The pick up location was from the hotel in Rovaniemi but after the tour you had to return to the city by your own(they left you at the santa-claus village). The ride with the reindeer was fun but way too short and the snowmobile ride was good enough (approx 30min) I recommend this tour because you combine both activities but if you want to have a better reindeer experience or better snowmobile experience you have to take them separately.
