We went as a family of six on a private Snow mobile tour today. We cannot fault the experience at all. From our initial email in England to todays experience, everything was just perfect. The safety instructions were clear, the equipment and suits were clean, fresh smelling and warm. Our Guide was just lovely and answered everyone’s questions and checked continually that we were all ok; three of our party had only just passed their driving tests (17 years). The snow mobiles had been prepared and looked very new. They drive beautifully. The scenery, the reindeer farm stop, the berry juice, the hot chocolate; everything was just perfect. Highly recommend and would definitely use this company on our next visit.

We did a snowmobile safari to Santas cabin. Our guide was fabulous, he was so knowledgeable and ensured we had the best time. The snowmobile ride was breathtaking, we went to a reindeer farm & took a short sleigh ride then met Santa. He had our daughter letter & made it magical. We had a warm up, hot drink & cake & returned via snowmobile. This was the best day of the holiday, we are planning our next trip & will 100% go back to Tokka

PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY WHEN BOOKING A SKIDOO TRIP!!!

The safety briefing we received was missing some major and known safety issues and due to this, I unfortunately ran into the skidoo ahead of me. It was a minor bump and there were thankfully no injuries. When we returned to base I was told I would have to pay €1500 in damages or they would call the police! There was an option before the trip to pay €35 for insurance which would mean that the maximum payment in the event of an accident would be €350 but this was not explained before the trip. I paid the €1500 as I was forced to, and tried to engage with the company about the safety issues but they have not listened. I have contacted them twice since getting home and they still have not acknowledged my suggested improvements to their safety procedures.

Please be careful with this company - here are the safety improvements so that you are aware of them if you do decide to book with this, or any other skidoo company…

1) The windscreens need to be cleared of hard frost as you cannot see through them. I struggled to see over the top and had to keep trying to peer around the side to see ahead of me.

2) To stop the skidoo you mostly just let off the accelerator and very rarely press the brake - this means that you will not get any visual brake light warning if someone stops ahead of you.

3) If you’re travelling downhill and try to brake, you may accidentally press the accelerator as this is on your right thumb and you lean forward with gravity. This was known to the instructor as she explained it after the crash but there was no mention of it before we set off. She said it was a common mistake.

4) Do not stop just after the brow of a hill if there is someone behind you! You are told to keep a safe distance from the person in front (which I did) but this safe distance is quickly eroded if the person in front stops just after the brow of a hill, leaving you limited time to react and stop yourself!!

5) Take some time before you set off to inspect your skidoo and take some pictures of it to check it’s condition. (Also consider taking pictures of the ones in front and behind you.) This is standard practice for hiring a car and with hindsight I wish we had done this on our trip. It was my word against theirs when it came to any damage caused

I’m hoping that by sharing this information, no-one else will have the same problems and most of all that no-one gets hurt.

We are very sorry to read this review, and apologize you feel this way. As you have made the booking online, you have read the term & conditions of safaris during your process of finishing the booking. Same terms conditions you have read & signed here in Tokka Safaris that mentions “Snowmobile driver is held liable for damages cause to the vehicle or third parties. Personal self-liability is 1500€. By buying a 35€ self-liability waiver before the start of the safari, liability is reduced to max. 350€.” We are very sorry we can not go in detail the terms with every customer, we encourage every customer to take time and read the terms carefully, this happened also with you. Before we start a safari, we go through driving instructions. Your guide Minna went through the instructions with your group, as she has done with many other. We understand that with the excitement in beginning, it can be hard to follow everything, we go through the instructions as clearly and slowly as we can, and hope that all will pay attention. We also stress the importance of safety distance. Guide is with you through the safari and if you feel something is unclear or some other issue, you can stop the snowmobile on the side of the track and guide will come and help you or answer your questions if something feels unclear. As we explained to you here in Tokka Safaris, we go through the snowmobiles before and after every safari, to make sure snowmobiles are in good condition. Lappish winter sometimes gives a challenge with conditions, it brings snow and ice in different forms, and unfortunately the windshields can get some ice on them sometimes, even if they are scraped before you head on to your adventure. As we went through this matter with you after your safari, we offered to call the police as you requested. Our manager Jan was in contact with you 1.5 day after the event, and again apologized and explained the matter. You have received the original repair report as soon as we received it from the repair shop, which states all the work and parts with prices. As we are small company where every snowmobile counts, loosing a snowmobile in the middle of the busiest season, is devastating for us, as the snowmobile will be out of use for weeks for repair, and costs of repair are high, much higher than the maximum liability we charged. Finally, most importantly no one got hurt, there was no damages to you or to other people. We take every situation like this seriously and appreciate your feed back, and your comments have been noticed with all of our staff. The procedure we took here is the same as with every snowmobile company in Lapland. Luckily we seldom have these situations, but sometimes accidents do happen and we are very sorry this happened to you.

We signed up for the Aurora with Snowmobiles tour with Tokka and joined a reasonably-sized group of about 12 others (adults and children) at 7p.m. on a crisp Thursday evening, hoping to see the aurora. Unfortunately, the weather didn't play ball, and it ended up snowing for most of the trip, but that really didn't detract from the experience at all; it was pretty magical coasting along on the snowmobiles and visiting the kota where we cooked sausages and marshmallows and had hot juice. Seeing the aurora would just have been an added bonus.

The general pace of the drive was sensible, but those of us who wanted to did, on occasion, get the chance to let rip and build up a little more speed. And thank goodness for the heated handgrips on the snowmobiles!

Our guide (I think it was Esko?) was fantastic - sorry, I can't remember his female co-guide's name, but she was equally good. It felt like they were both experienced and knew what they were doing. And they also sorted out a little problem with our documentation which also helped make the tour much more enjoyable than it could have been otherwise.

Overall, a fantastic experience - my son loved it, and said it was definitely a highlight of his trip to Lapland. Well done, Tokka!

We went here (family of 6) on the 6th of December 2022. The snowmobile experience was amazing and the staff were brilliant! We were disappointed with the Santa, he appeared disorganised and even though i had given all my childrens details and he also appeared to have them written in front of him, he got it wrong. Hardly any interaction with the children and at times I had to step in or there would of been silence. We also did the 200 m reindeer sleigh ride. The people managing this were lovely. If we based it on the Santa experience we would definitely not go back here again, however, the snowmobiling and all the Santa there were so amazing we would definitely book a snowmobile experience here as it was amazing!

We did the Christmas Safari yesterday with Erki (sorry if not correct) who was an amazing guide, really friendly and helpful. Safari included snow mobile ride (about 40 minutes each way), short reindeer ride, Santa visit and hot drink and cake. It was an amazing experience, adults loved the snow mobiles especially when we could put our foot down! Kids enjoyed Santa and reindeer ride. Santa was great with kids and funny too… All staff were really helpful ensuring little ones were warm and comfortable. Thank you 🙏

Wonderful snowmobile experience with sled for kids. Easy online booking and on site met by the friendliest and accommodating staff. We drove around the Levi fell with stops along the route to look at reindeer.

Well this was the highlight of our trip. It started with really friendly and helpful staff, we did a family safari in the snow it was truly magical and very scenic. Driving a snowmobile was a fantastic experience even though I was nervous! We stopped for doughnuts and hot drinks, then off to Vmax kids snowmobile track which our 9 year old absolutely loved.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tokka and it’s given us the confidence to hire from them next time.

Thanks Tokka!

Wonderful snowmobile safari at night with Tatu to see the Aurora. It was magical driving through the forest. Half way we were treated to sausages cooked over the fire and marshmallows. We were lucky to see the aurora which was absolutely awesome. Tatu answered all our questions and looked after us very well. This was an excellent experience and one of the highlights of our trip to Lapland,

Favorite thing was that the guides and staff were finnish! It's the best thing having natives around, not some tourists! Don't be sad if you miss the auroras. Enjoy the snowmobile ride!

Thank you for your review! That is true, if you miss the auroras, you will still enjoy the ride, the wilderness and snack by a campfire. All our staff is native Finnish and they are brilliant in work! Sometimes we have situations, when customer needs a guide who speaks their language. Then we will try to find a suitable guide for that situation.
