No journey to Lapland is complete without the exhilaration of a skidoo safari. You can choose anything from a short exhillerating tour of a couple of hours to a long overnight journey to the high tundra. 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 or you can share the pillion/driving role with your other half. Children can ride pillion if their feet can reach the footrests (normally at about 10 years of age). Alternatively, they can ride in a snowmobile sleigh pulled behind the guide's snowmobile. FYI We recommend that one parent accompany them in the sleigh if they are too young to sit safely on their own. We will accept older siblings taking responsibility for younger siblings under your guidance since you know your children best.
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.
Our most popular day tour options are outlined here. We can offer the shorter tours nearly every day in winter (even if we don't have availabilities showing on the online system...aka just ask) and we also run the Palojoki Wilderness Tour c. once per week but the Näkkälä Circular tour is something that we offer primarily in March and April.

Northern Lights by Snowmobile
You don't need to go far from few lights of Hetta to truly revel in the northern lights. Hence, our northern lights tours tend to be reasonably short in distance and just go to the best vantage points from which we have a good chance of seeing the lights. We have a traditional northern lights snowmobile tour on well groomed tracks - in which the majority of clients choose to share a snowmobile and take it in turns to drive. This is very different from driving on the tracks in the daytime and is an experience in itself. However, from 2022 we have been able to also offer a luxurious verion of our aurora snowmobile tour in which clients are pulled behind a large Alpina Sherpa Machine in a warm 'bubble' sleigh which means that you can go out to the best spots from which to see the lights without having to wear a million layers or get too cold.

We also offer a number of overnight journeys to wilderness cabins using snowmobiles.
Although we primarily offer these options in Spring when we are less busy with the dogs, it may be possible to request specific dates, particularly if you want to book one in combination with a multiday husky safari. In peak season, however, our focus is definitely on the dogs.
