Arctic Ocean Safari
Welcome to northernmost Finland and the arctic! This safari will take you on frozen lakes, majestic fells and through picturesque sceneries of the arctic wilderness.
You will be picked up at Ivalo airport and taken to Inari village where you will check into your hotel room at Hotel Inari. Your guide will brief you on the upcoming days and do final checks to make sure that you have everything you need for the trip. Dinner at the hotel.
After breakfast we will meet at the safari office next door to the hotel. Here you will get dressed in winter snowmobiling gear and listen to a final safety briefing before starting our adventure. Starting from the frozen Lake Inari, known for its ruggedness and beauty, we head towards the north. At some point during our journey we will stop for a lunch before continuing the drive. Once we’ve reached our overnight destination we can warm our tired bodies in a hot sauna and refuel with a tasty dinner.
After breakfast we will hop on our snowmobiles and cross the Norwegian border. Our journey continues through the bleakly beautiful and dramatic landscapes of Northern Norway, whose shores have been shaped into fjords by the last Ice Age. Trees are scarce and the weather can be extreme. On the shores of Norway we will take a walk by the Arctic ocean . The Gulf Stream prevents the sea from freezing. If you dare, you can test your manhood or womanhood by taking a dip in the icy water. During the day we learn about the Sámi people, the King Crab, salmon and the mighty ocean itself. Lunch will be outside by the fire on in a restaurant depending on the weather conditions. In the afternoon we return to our accommodation. In the evening it is time to relax and rest after sauna and dinner. Although if the sky is clear you may want to hop outside to see if the auroras are putting on their magic light show!
After breakfast we will start our final day of snowmobiling. Our route takes us through more dramatic and vast wilderness areas. On the way back, we will once again stop to warm our toes and to have a lunch. We should arrive back in Inari in the afternoon or early evening, depending on weather and driving conditions.
After breakfast you will be picked up and taken to Ivalo airport. It’s goodbye to Inari and the Arctic Ocean, but memories of the experience will probably stay with your forever.
This safari can be only booked directly from our sales office.
