What's not included
  • Gratuities

After convenient pickup in Helsinki, head for the adventure center to suit up in a warm thermal snowsuit, balaclava, gloves, boots, and a helmet—way more gear than would fit in your suitcase. Once you're suited up and ready to face the Arctic elements, jump on a snowmobile (one vehicle per two adults) and head off in a convoy led by a guide who knows the area well. Zip through the archipelago on a series of forest trails and around the frozen Gulf of Finland, stopping to get epic views and hear detailed commentary on life (human and animal) in the islands. Take a longer break on one remote island for a barbecue lunch over the campfire, prepared in the traditional Lappish way, and warm beverages to keep the cold at bay. Opt to explore further with a snowshoeing or ice fishing activity, then head back to the snowmobile center, and end your tour with drop-off in Helsinki.

We rode snowmobiles on the frozen sea in a blizzard, how cool is that! The guide had fun stories about the islands, the wildlife and his own life growing up in the area. The supplied outfits were warm and comfortable even when the wind was gusting and the snow was falling quite heavily and the experience overall was just fantastic. Seeing the snow-covered sea blend into the white sky in the blizzard was amazing, especially knowing you had a capable guide to make sure you didn't get lost in it!

The included lunch had all my favourite Finnish outdoor treats and sitting around the fire with the snow falling down, a grilled sausage and a mug of mulled (non-alcoholic) wine was a lovely experience. The lunch was filling and delicious and if you go on the 5th of February you might get a Runeberg torte for dessert!

Beautiful and quite nature safari a excellent opportunity to see the area of a achipelago!

Perfect combination for a trip to Helsinki. The base is located 30 min away from Helsinki, with transport possible from senate square. So it couldn’t be easier!

The guides are super friendly and easy going, creating an awesome experience!

Definitely the best experience I've had! The guides are super friendly.
Anders picked us up and drove us out to Archipelago, where we met Kenneth. He are awesome at showing and tell about the beautiful, they have, and how they used to live. It was very informative and we got to meet some of the locals on the ice, to see how they catch fish under the ice.

In the lunch break we got a chance to fish ourselves through a hole, while Anders and Kenneth fixed lunch, which was typical Finish outdoor food, very delicious. There were no rush, we got to enjoy the outstanding view.

All in all, it's an amazing tour, outstanding scenery, lovely guides that makes it a unforgettable tour! 10 out of 10, would go again! You will never regret going, the guides make sure it is going to be an awesome day!

Beautiful archipelago landscapes and fresh air a few kilometers away from Helsinki at your fingertips via a snowmobile tour on the frozen sea. I was also able to try kicksled, drill a hole in the ice and try my luck at net fishing, see locals have all kinds of winter fun (including driving a motorcycle and ATV on the frozen sea!). Kenneth and Henrik make you feel welcome and are great company!

We had a great time with Kenneth! He is a great host and experienced guide. It was fun to ride the snow mobile but also to find out more about the life around the archipelago and it's inhabitants. True winter must-do experience! We highly recommend! Thank you for great energy :) M&M

All around a great tour with a fantastic tour company! They gear you up with everything you need to stay comfortable while driving across and through the frozen archipelago. You stop occasionally for a few words about the area, culture and wildlife. If you have limited time in Helsinki, get out and see something unique about Finland.

We had prebooked the snowmobile safari and we’re so glad that we did. It gave a real focus to our weekend away. Our eldest (16) and the 10 year old had a super time and fitted in the gear provided and were really toasty. It was surreal to be charging across the frozen archipelago on the machines. We were all novices but it was straightforward to learn and our guides, Henrik and Anders were excellent and there were plenty of opportunities to stop and take in the scenery. The lunch was lovely and warming and it was super fun drilling a hole through the thick ice to try out fishing! This trip is highly recommended and worth every penny!

we visited in january 2019 and we had an incredible day. the equipment and snowmobiles are all high quality, clean and well maintained. Kenneth gave us a magical tour of the archipelago and answered all of our questions - he's lived there almost all of his life and is very knowledgeable. he gave us a fascinating insight into life on the archipelago. we had fun driving the snowmobiles and a lovely bbq lunch around the fire prepared by kenneth. highly recommended trip!

Me and my girlfriend's first time in Helsinki completely changed when we came across Burn Out City. It was coming to the end of winter and Ice was melting on the Archipelago. Henrik and his team came to pick us up at our hotel door and took us to a very fulfilling experience with a lot of excitement, speed, great lunch, amazing view and true finish traditions. We were the last winter tour for 2018. I recommend anyone to go for this tour. Not only is worth money wise but these guys really make you feel part of Finland.
