Hetta Huskies Snowmobile Safaris

No journey to Lapland is complete without the exhilaration of a skidoo safari. Hence, make sure that you bring your driving licence with you, if this is something that you are looking forward to, since you will need one in order to be able to drive. Those who do not wish to drive can ride pillion and children can ride in a snowmobile sleigh on the shorter journeys so that the whole family can enjoy this experience together.

Driving a skidoo on tracks is easier than you might imagine and is accessible to all, whilst driving off-tracks in virgin snow, is best left to the experts. Whilst our guides ensure that safety is paramount at all times, they also select an appropriate degree of terrain challenge for the skill and enjoyment of each group.

Näkkälän Tails

When travelling by snowmobile, you can cover quite a lot of terrain in a relatively short time and at this Northerly latitude, that means that you can traverse a number of eco-zones relatively quickly. Enontekio is above the spruce line and at the Northern end of the pine line. North of Hetta, trees disappear almost completely, so you may find yourself driving through a landscape in which there is nothing but whiteness all around you, as far as the eye can see. It is a truly Arctic tundra landscape – an endless desert of snow.

Distance and c. Duration: 70-90km, 4-6hrs
Price: Shared snowmobile: €150 per person.
One person / snowmobile: High Season €250: Low Season €180
Price includes: a snowmobile suit and boots upon prior request, a helmet and the snowmobile / snowmobile sleigh as appropriate.

This tour takes c. 5 hours and can be quite challenging physically. The route can either be an out and back (if people are getting cold / the trails are challenging) or a circular route via Näkkälä.

Distance and c. Duration: 70-90km, 4-6hrs
Price: Shared snowmobile: €165 per person.
One person / snowmobile: High Season €300: Low Season €225
Price includes: a snowmobile suit and boots upon prior request, a helmet and the snowmobile / snowmobile sleigh as appropriate.


Galdotievo - Tundra Return by Snowmobile Sleigh

We have offered this trip frequently to family and friends since, by missing out the long sections of snowmobiling to and from Hetta and Galdotievo, it is the most direct and enjoyable way to access to the stunning scenery of the tundra. Since there is no need for anyone to drive their own machine, this tour is possible also for both young and old.

If people need a transfer to Galdotievo from Hetta first, this can be arranged. Otherwise, we gather in Galdotievo whilst guides will drive the snowmobiles and sleighs up from Hetta. From there, we head to the high point on the tundra, take some photos and then return.

Distance and c. Duration: 40km, 2-4hrs
Price: €80 / person sitting in snowmobile-pulled sleigh.
Price includes: a snowmobile suit and boots upon prior request, a helmet and the snowmobile / snowmobile sleigh as appropriate.
