Are you ready for an adventure by electric snowmobiles? For those wishing become to part of the nature, and not just drive through it, our Silent safaris are the perfect solution. What makes us unique is our silent and emission-free electric snowmobile - eSled.
eSleds upset neither the animals nor the nature's delicate balance. Our safaris are designed for small groups, for the benefit of the environment as well as participants. We also operate on exclusive private routes, taking our guests through the frozen bogs and rugged hills of Rovaniemi to experience the wonders of the Arctic. Driving in the snowy and silent forest is an exciting experience. Our safaris starts from Arctic SnowHotel & Glass Igloos in the village of Sinettä, approx. a 25 min drive from the city centre of Rovaniemi. On our 3-hour Sunrise Safari we set off to the forest in the morning to enjoy the few hours of daylight the Arctic winter has to offer. Driving on the frozen lake and through the snow-clad forest, we get to see the rising sun turn the wilderness into a vista of glistening white. Before heading back, we stop at a hunting cabin on the top of a hill to warm ourselves by the fire and enjoy hot juice, sausages, and cookies.
eSled - Electric Snowmobile Safari:
A truly unique experience
The eSled – electric snowmobile is an innovative new way to experience the Arctic splendor without disturbing the silent peace of wintry nature. We are the first and only company in the world offering electric snowmobile safaris, a sustainable way of experiencing and exploring the purity and silence of the Lappish nature.
Connect with nature
The electric motor of the eSled is silent, and the only little sound comes from the snowmobile skis and a spinning track while sliding on snow and ice. During the safaris you can enjoy the fresh and clean air of Lapland and perhaps even see a herd of reindeers making their way in the forest. Thanks to its precise electric drive, the eSled is easy to handle while enjoying your journey in the snowy landscape.
Our private and easy-to-access trails are well-maintained ensuring you a pleasant and safe safari ride. The beautiful landscape along trails includes versatile nature: lake scenery, rugged hillsides, old pine forests, and marshlands. During the breaks, there’s also a chance to take pictures of these scenic views and share them with your friends. To make your experience even more exclusive, our safari comprises of small group of one guide and 8 eSleds. Children aged 4-14 can enjoy the ride in a sleigh towed by the safari guide’s eSled.
Important information: One driver of one snowmobile must always be at least 18 years of age and a driver’s license is recommended for all drivers. According to the Finnish law, a driver’s license is not required on our normal safaris because of using private routes and properties.
