You will drive snowmobiles on a curved trail in a snowy forest and arrive to a taiga lake to try ice-fishing for perch! The local instructor will help to drill a hole in the ice, give you all the fishing gear and professional fishing advice. After the fishing, your host will serve a traditional Finnish fish soup with rye or white bread and butter and pancakes with coffee around the open fire in a wooden teepee, located next to the lake. After the lunch, snowmobile safari will continue back to the village.
The tour will start at a local safari house in Levi, where you will change into gear, guaranteed to keep you warm and dry during the safari, including overall, boots, helmet and gloves. Once equipped, a guide will give you brief instructions, and off you go!
The average speed during our tours is limited due to safety and traffic regulations. Two adults ride on one snowmobile, unless single (solo) supplement has been booked. Children under 120 cm of height ride in a sleigh pulled by the guide’s snowmobile.

- For those people who consider self-rental: out there you’ll be surrounded by almost total whiteness, so it’s quite easy to lose one’s way for the first time, that’s why to guarantee the quality time, we highly recommend for the first time to go on an organized safari with an experienced local guide.
