Our long years of operating in Lapland have taught us that there are some clients who simply cannot get enough of the sheer exhilaration that a snowmobile provides. And so, we have designed a break guaranteed to get their pulses racing.
This three or four-night trip includes two wind-in-the hair excursions that will give you ample opportunity to hone your snowmobile driving skills amid the snowscapes of True Lapland. The two-hour Northern Lights Snowmobile Safari offers a magical evening at the controls of your own snowmobile, crossing frozen lakes and silent forests in search of the Lights, but it is the full-day Snowmobile Adventure that will really introduce you to the beauty of Lapland.
Additional excursions can also be added to make your adventure into the wild truly special.
Please note this tour is only available for those with a full driver's licence.

Your Snowmobile Voyager break begins with a flight from your chosen UK airport to Enontekiö in Northern Finland. From here, you will make the 1-hour transfer to Karesuando - a spectacular journey, travelling through the majestic forests and passing countless frozen lakes. The charming village of Karesuando will then be the base for your Arctic adventure, from where you will venture out on the exciting activities detailed below before flying back from Enontekiö.
We’ll organise the running order according to the local conditions while you’re there so a set itinerary will be provided at a later date. You will also have the opportunity to choose from our programme of optional excursions: maybe try your hand at husky sledding or spend a night in an igloo – a definite highlight of our Arctic Spirit programmes!
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
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.
