Half-Day Snowmobile Safari including Lunch in Helsinki Archipelago
USD 339.01
Exploring Helsinki’s archipelago is usually done by ferry, but services are limited in winter when the sea freezes. With this half-day tour from Helsinki, ride a 2-person snowmobile over the snow to islets and bays. See how locals fish under the ice; try snowshoe walking, kick sleds, ice fishing, and ice floating; and enjoy a campfire-cooked lunch. Pay extra for a solo snowmobile or for a sauna after sea swimming.
What to Expect
Your guide will meet you at your hotel and drive you to the snowmobile center with a car or minivan. When you arrive you will be provided with a warm snowsuit, boots, gloves, balaclava and helmet. A short safety briefing and driving instructions is then given to you. You will set off in a convoy led by the guide.

On the snowmobile adventure you will experience the beautiful frozen archipelago. At this longer snowmobile tour you will visit a view tower in the outer archipelago and drive up a river in the inner archipelago. You will make several stops during the tour and the guide will explain to you about living in the archipelago. You will meet a local fisherman who takes up his fishing nets under the ice. At an island you will make a longer break and enjoy lunch cooked over open fire and warm drinks. During the lunch break you have a chance to try snowshoe walking, kick sleds or ice fishing. 

After the break you will continue your adventure back to the snowmobile center. At the snowmobile center you can try ice floating with our survival suits if you dare. If you want to stay longer and go to the sauna afterwards including swimming in the frozen sea this can be arranged for an extra fee. This experience will give you a memory for life. After the snowmobile tour your guide will drive you back to your hotel.

This is a must if you go through Helsinki in winter

I was not at all sure what to expect. However this turned out to be the best part of my trip to Helsinki. This was exactly what it was advertised as; a "safari" of a beautiful snow covered landscape. The staff (Kenneth, Hendrik & Anders)...More

Can't recommend this experience enough! Kenneth and Anders were amazing guides, so welcoming and fun. So much more than just a snowmobiling experience. 5 stars is not a high enough rating! Thanks again and see you guys in Jersey.
