Christmas Spirit with Snowmobile and Father Christmas

Experience a perfect Christmas atmosphere with the whole family!

Activity Description

We’ll leave right from Ylläsjärvi lake by snowmobiles and drive to a very special place hidden in the deep snow covered forest. The parents will drive their own snowmobile while the children are safely seated in a sledge pulled by our guide’s snowmobile.

We will reach a cozy red log cabin lost in the woods where the smell of gingerbread cookies is attracting us! We will be warmly invited inside to enjoy a Christmas drink and will make our own Christmas decoration.

An Elf will greet us, and will show us the path to meet Father Christmas himself in his cabin, each family will have chance to meet Santa individually and have a memorable family moment. We will also get to see Santa’s very Secret Christmas Book, where every child and adult can write their names and present wishes! At the end of this great meeting every child will be rewarded with a gift! 

Before ending this magical adventure, we will have fun in the snow with outdoor activities such as tobogganing, kick sledding, mini snowmobile and much more. Moreover, we will have opportunity to grill some sausages on an open fire for a unique arctic Christmas barbecue.

After sharing a great family and fairy experience, we will jump back on the snowmobile and head back home with the head full of memories!

You can send us your child's letter to Santa. We will make sure it reaches him and when you come to visit Santa in his very own place, he himself will read the letter with your child. A great moment for the little ones! Details for the address you can ask upon the booking.

Each person driving a snowmobile must be at least 18 years old and hold a valid driving license (B). Please remember to take your driving license with you.  

Two persons per snowmobile. For groups of 3 persons or other odd number of people, we highly recommend purchasing one single driver supplement.  

Snowmobile driver is held liable for any damages caused to the vehicle. Personal self-liability is max. 900 €/person/snowmobile/case of accident. By purchasing a 15 € self-liability insurance before the start of the safari, you reduce the amount of self-liability down to max. 150 €/person/snowmobile/case of accident. Self-liability insurance is personal and valid in one snowmobile safari.  

In snowmobile safaris children 0-12 years old are seated in a sledge behind the guide’s snowmobile. If the child of 13 or 14 years old is less than 140 cm and not capable of sitting safely on the snowmobile, s/he will be seated in the sledge. We highly recommend one of the parents to sit with a small child in the sledge for the child’s comfort and safety. If a child over 140 cm wishes to sit in a snowmobile as a passenger, a full adult price will be charged (according to availability).
