Sometimes, you just can’t get enough: enough of cutting across snow drifts, of zipping down frozen rivers, or of the engine’s happy hum as you surge into the vast, wintry snow scenes of Lapland. When it comes to snowmobiling, some of our guests just keep coming back for more, year after year.
Our dedicated Snowmobile Adventurer holiday, then, was created for those who have already experienced the thrill of snowmobiling and want to revive the exhilarating drives through Lapland’s Arctic tundra. Cutting through wintry forests, over pristine frozen lakes, and through the deep snow, the snowmobile routes of True Lapland weave through the best of its scenic backdrop and stretch beyond the horizon. Whether chasing the Northern Lights or venturing out on a day-long safari, the adrenaline still pulses, the thrill enthralls, and the excitement abounds when seeking adventure by snowmobile.
All drivers should be aged 17 or above and hold a valid driving licence. For first timers, you may want to consider our Northern Lights holiday, which includes an introductory snowmobile safari as well as a host of other activities and excursions.

This holiday begins with Transun’s exclusive charter flight from your chosen UK airport to Enontekio, in northernmost Finnish Lapland. Enontekio is a tiny airport, and yours may be the only flight to land that day – the best way to avoid queues at passport control or luggage collection. From there, a one-hour transfer to your chosen hotel in Karesuando, a small border village in which Finland and Sweden are divided by a frozen river.
After a hearty dinner, collection of your thermal suits and boots, and a welcome meeting from your resort rep, it is time to settle into your chosen hotel and explore the surrounding area. Your daily itinerary of your holiday is given on arrival, so that arrangements can be best made in light of weather forecasts and any expected snow storms.
You may wish to add on optional excursions to your holiday, such as husky sledding or a night in an igloo, but the Snowmobile Voyager holiday already includes the following:
Northern Lights Snowmobile Safari
Duration: 2 hours
An evening excursion when, with the night sky overhead, you head out through the wilderness to a vantage point in the hope of seeing the fabled and magical Northern Lights. Two adults share a snowmobile.
Full Day Snowmobile Adventure
Duration: Full Day
Setting off on your trusty snowmobile, you will navigate along the winter-stilled surface of a frozen river, stopping along the way to try your hand at ice fishing and snowshowing, and to stop for a warming lunch amid the wilderness landscapes.
Optional Excursions & Extras
Had a great stay. Different to any other holiday we have ever had and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff and food were good, and we got to see the Northern lights!

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this tour suitable for children?
We don’t recommend Snowmobile Voyager for passengers under the age of seventeen. To drive a snowmobile and fully participate on this tour, a full driving licence is required.
What is the deposit?
To confirm the holiday, the deposit is £200 per person. The final balance is due ten weeks before departure, though these terms may differ if you have booked through a travel agent.
Is Snowmobile Voyager suitable for beginners?
Although prior experience of snowmobile driving is not strictly necessary, a degree of mobility and driving competence is required. The tour does include a full day’s snowmobiling in the wilderness and so may not be suitable for those with medical or complex needs. For those wanting to try snowmobiling for the first time and still enjoy the full-length safari, you may want to consider the Northern Lights holiday, which is also part of our Arctic Spirit collection and also includes other Lapland activities such as husky sledding.
Can anyone drive a snowmobile?
Driving a snowmobile in Finland is like driving a car, and similar laws apply. A full valid driving licence is required - please ensure you bring this with you as it must be presented in resort. Normal traffic laws apply on snowmobile routes. A damage waiver must be signed before commencing the activity. Credit card verification is taken and a €980 excess is payable for any damage, irrespective of severity, prior to leaving resort. The guide’s safety instructions must be followed, and safety helmets must be worn at all times.
What currency should I take?
The currency in Finland is the Euro; the currency in Sweden is the Krona. Many hotels and establishments in the Nordic countries will not accept cash and only accept card payments (the Davvi Arctic Star hotel only accepts card payments, not cash). All Transun optional excursions are advertised in Sterling; credit and debit cards are accepted as payment for excursions booked in resort.
Can I add on additional excursions and activities when in Lapland?
If you wanted to make your holiday extra special, it is possible to add on additional activities to your tour after arriving in Lapland. However, availability of activities and excursions is limited and so we recommend that you book your place before you travel to guarantee your place. Some of the most popular excursions added to the Snowmobile Voyager tour are husky sledding, ice fishing, and the Ice Hotel visit, and these are likely to sell out first.
