    Snowmobile Reendier Santa Claus Village
    Hi, we had a great trip with our guide Tuomas during the whole day. We meet beautiful places without any pressure of time. The tour started at 10am and we where back nearly 5pm full of impressions from a great winter wonderland, driving over the biggest lake in this region and feeding reendiers, driving thru the white forest ..... deep snow ... and much more. Absolutely to recommend if possible small group max. 3-4 people! Friendly guid perfect English speaking. THX Karsten & Katja

    Great Snowmobile experience
    It was the first time with a snowmobile for both of us. If you are already in Lapland it is definitely worth the money. Hotel pick-up was on time, we received all the equipment needed (overall, helmet, gloves,..) which was also clean and kept us warm. The instructions were clear and didn’t take long, the slopes were well prepared and the two hours went over way too fast, as it makes really fun driving these skidoos. Also super nice staff. Btw.: We saw wild reindeer 🤭

    An amazing snowmobile ride!!
    We did a snowmobile safari and husky ride. The husky ride was great! We got to each " drive" the sled! The dogs are soo fast ! They were all amazing but my kids loved the snowmobiles so much that we booked a second round of snowmobiling. We each got our own snowmobiles. It was fantastic! We got to drive the snowmobiles on the frozen lake. Our instructors were fantastic! They was very helpful in giving us tips on riding. I highly recommend this!!

We did a snowmibile tour up a fell to see Northern lights. The track was very rough with holes and the creek. At one stage the snowmobile towing the sledge containing children got bogged. They had to disengage the sledge and the children get out abd walk while they went backwards and forwards to unbog the snowmobile. This really cheqed up the spot which we were theb told to go ahead. We are both only lught and the snowmibile tipped. We ended up in muddy water. As a result I have a swollen knee and ankle and heavy flu being wet and cold for the rest of the trip. Thank you to Axle for the lend of his glove. There should have been someone to follow as we were inexperienced all other mobiles required assistance. Really poorly done, others expressed their concern about safety. Worst experience of our trip, requires somine to lead group so they know where to go, assess safety of track, suitability and experience of riders. Now I am unwell for the rest of our trip

Followed by snow mobile rides for the children.Our guide was Aino and she was very helpful and made every effort that we had a great time.She even drove us home after the trip, which was pleasent surprise with small children and cold weather.

Trip was fun, We as group had 6-8 km ride in tundra and woods to get to Fire and back. Since we were not expert snowmobile drives, plus at evening time riding was not as difficult but i guess not importantly not to hit a tree and being in group of 15 snowmobile . you need to pay attention to other and road. My wife and myself ride 2 different mobiles ( original was take away by other couple and I think I know why (warmer on steering wheel burn my hand : ) and i could not turn it off) so in way there some body had that issue and decided to switch) Ride was fun. i wish we had more open space to increase speed and have more fun. However my kids are did not enjoy as much as we did, My youngest was told to go to sled that attach to instructors snowmobile (that was company policy) and my oldest was told to share ride with stranger (who was not able to drive it after all so she made a mistake because she would drive in both direction) but because we had driven snow mobiles in Iceland ( where my kid was seated next to adult ), she in solidarity to little sister went in sled (which was freezing and butt crushing experience). As we ask for reason not allowing a teen to ride on back on mobile with a adult we were told as policy and price on tour for children not allow them to do it. as we told them we would pay a difference on way back to office. instructors told us the was no more snowmobile, So as a group we had different experiences and emotion about a organization

Took the snowmobile tour with Vema and it exceeded our expectations. We met the guide at the Rovaniemi office and were driven to the site of the activity. The company provided us with warm clothing and helmets for the ride. Our guide gave us all the safety information and how to drive the snowmobiles and off we were! It was only us and another couple so it was almost like a private tour! Vema was a great guide and the trail was a blast!

We did our snowmobile ride thru Arctic Lifestyle. From their main office in Rovaniemi, we went to the snowmobile ride place in their vehicle. We were given a special dress there for the ride and were taken to where snowmobiles were parked.

The trainer girl was extremely enthusiastic. She explained us properly the snowmobile and its required functionalities. She was going to be in a different snowmobile that was going to be the first vehicle and our four vehicles were supposed to follow her in a queue (we were seven of us, so two per vehicle). She also told us the signals to be followed if we want to seek her attention, if we want to stop, etc.

When the ride started, she ensured that she pays attention to all four vehicles of ours and was very proficient at it. When any of our vehicles used to deviate, she immediately used to stop all of us, get that vehicle back on track and then restart the journey for all. When we reached at one end, she asked everyone to stop to take a break. By then we had become somewhat more comfortable and were enjoying the ride. She then asked everyone to take a U-turn and get into the return journey.

Track was very good. It was snow all around and trees by the side. We enjoyed this experience very much. Kudos to t he trainer and to Arctic Lifestyle

Went ice karting with artic lifestyle and cannot recommend it enough. Didn't expect it to be the highlight of the trip but it was! Guide was friendly, helpful and relaxed - allowing us to have the most fun out on the track. Nothing beats drifting around a corner perfectly.

I did a longer trail with guide Miikka and I strongly recommend. As a dirtbike rider myself I found the experience adrenaline full, absolutely gorgeous tracks, power engine snowmobile and the best of all being with Miikka gives you a sense of security at all times, he lets you ride free but secure, allways has an eye on every one, and a clear explanation of what to do. ROVANIEMI BEST WILD EXPERIENCE EVER!

Although we've never driven snowmobile before, we booked the longer trails tour and we had an amazing time. Very professional and friendly staff who gave clear instructions and looked after the 5 people in the group. Duration and description were also accurate. Totally recommend it!
