Snowmobile expedition to Kaldoaivi and Paistunturi wilderness areas and Arctic ocean 24-29.2.2024
On an unforgettable six-day snowmobile safari, you drive through the two northernmost wilderness areas in Europe, visit the three northernmost villages in Finland, and experience enchanting moments by the barren winter nature.
The snow glistening in the sun, the frost steaming from the breath and the snow surface creaking under the steps offer a unique experience of experiencing nature in February on a snowmobile. The safari is driven on a marked snowmobile route and in wilderness areas known by guide, in large swamps and fells.
On the last day, we will visit the Arctic Ocean on the Norwegian side.
During the safari, we have lunch in nature and in local restaurants. Accommodation is in fully equipped cabins, a real wilderness cabin and hotel rooms. On the expedition, you are part of a group – the food is prepared together and you get to heat the sauna and the cabin with help from the guide.
