Thrill and excitement amongst the peace and quiet!
New for 2024, our Snowmobile Voyager holiday brings to life the highlights and landmarks of True Lapland via the thrill of the snowmobile. Zip along frozen rivers, weave across the Arctic tundra, and delve into the pristine snow scenes that stretch to the horizon. And what a backdrop to your snowmobile adventure this is! Based at the foot of the snow-capped Lyngen Alps, and perched on the edge of Lake Kilpis, Kilpisjarvi is the perfect base from which to explore the most northern parts of True Lapland – a very special place indeed, where unspoiled nature and fresh adventure await.
An undoubted highlight of this tour is venturing out on snowmobile to the ‘three borders’ point, where Norway, Finland and Sweden meet – circle around all three countries in less than 30 seconds! And there’s more – this holiday also includes a Northern Lights snowmobile tour, where you may be dazzled by the dancing Aurora, and a reindeer camp excursion where you’ll be introduced to the local Sami and their way of life.
Kilpisjarvi is often cited as a favourite Lapland resort, and this snowmobiling holiday showcases it at its finest!
All snowmobile drivers should be aged 17 or above and hold a valid driving licence.

Your Snowmobile Voyager holiday begins with a morning flight to Enontekio Airport, on our direct charter flight, exclusive to Transun. Enontekio is a very small airport and yours is likely to be the only flight that day. From there, you make the two-hour transfer to Kilpisjarvi, with a stop enroute to collect your thermal suits and snow boots, which you keep for the duration of your stay in Lapland.
Upon arrival in Kilpisjavi, you’ll be shown to your chosen hotel or cabin, where your stay will be on a full-board basis, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Your Transun rep will give a welcome presentation and highlight some of the features of the area – Kilpis is steeped in myths and legends, and the spectacular surrounding scenery provides the perfect backdrop to these fascinating stories.
Your Snowmobile Voyager holiday will include the following excursions, though you may wish to add further activities from our available range, to make your holiday extra special:
