Early Winter Snowmobile Tours in Lapland

Enjoy winter’s favorite activity sooner than ever before

Our Snowmobile Safaris in Rovaniemi

( 11 November – 28 November )

Ready to kickstart the snowmobiling season? Our early winter snowmobile tours invite you to explore the Arctic nature ahead of the crowd. Plus, we’ve got a family-friendly tour perfect for those with young children.

The snowmobiling season starts at Apukka Resort

Snowmobiling and Lapland fit together like a mitten and a hand. The thrill, freedom, and the beautiful scenery create unforgettable memories, catering to both seasoned riders and first-timers. Our expert guides offer safety instructions, making the ride stress-free. Plus, we have options for families with children, ensuring everyone can share in the excitement.

“But what if there isn’t any natural snow in November?” you might wonder. No need to worry. We’ve stockpiled an abundance of snow from the previous season to ensure you can enjoy snowy trails as early as possible. Both available snowmobile tours feature a midway break, where you can enjoy hot drinks while appreciating the tranquility of Lappish nature.

Our snowmobile tours start at Apukka Resort, located at Tutkijantie 28, 96900 Rovaniemi. Transfers to and from the city center and Santa Claus Village are included. Most of the tours occur in the immediate vicinity of the resort, and we utilize private trails and terrains.
