Our snowmobiles are easy to drive and have been developed for the demanding conditions of Finnish Lapland. The price for the safari includes guidance, fuel and the services ordered.
Our guides are experts at their profession and have received the appropriate training for the task. Every snowmobile safari begins with driving instruction, including information on controlling the vehicle, technology and safety. Guidance is provided in English.
All snowmobiles are insured in accordance with the Motor Insurance Act. The insurance policy covers all treatment costs incurred from injuries suffered by the driver or passanger in case of accident. Additionally, the policy also includes cover against third party personal injuries and full cover for property damage to innocent parties as stipulated by the Motor Insurance Act. Safartica will not be held responsible for any personal or material damages that occur during other activities, such as husky safaris, reindeer safaris or other programmes. We recommend you take perosnal travel insurance before travelling to Finland.
Excess liability in case on accident
The snowmobile driver is responsible for any damage he/she caused to the snowmobile. The excess liability is set at a maximum of 800 eur / driver / snowmobile / accident. The participants will be informed about the excess liability before the safari and in connection with the driving instruction, unless otherwise agreed.
The driver of the snowmobile shall be at least fifteen years old and hold valid driver's licence. Children under fifteen can, however, participate in the safaris, as they will travel in the sleigh pulled behing the snowmobile. The same rule apply for driving a snowmobile that apply to motoring in general in Finland, even though snowmobiles are used to travel on routes and trails in the terrain, not on roads. The safari participant is responsible for making sure he/she is fit to drive. As the company responsible for implementing the programmes, we reserve the right to alter the routes and durations of the trips, form of transport and price, due to weather and snow conditions or safety concerns, if seen necessary for ensuring the safety and comfort of the participants.
