Winter Weekly Programme - an easy starting point!
We organize a weekly schedule of activities throughout the winter season. Choose your own combination of things to do: riding husky teams, a snowmobile tour of the surrounding area, ice fishing, ice carting, visit to a horse farm and horse riding, and much more. All of the excursions and safaris are led by qualified guides, and every activity includes instruction and equipment lease.
Winter programmes run from 1 November to 15 April, though the timing of some tours depends on snow cover and ice quality. Minimum numbers per group depend on the programme. Individual guests can easily join in – our managers will make up sufficient numbers to form a group. You can book places on any programme until 16:00 on the previous day. Some of the weekly programmes are available at the Travel Shop. If you're a larger group, we'll be happy to design a suitable programme according to your own timetable and wishes.
Winter programmes for families
Take part in our winter programmes as a family! The minimum age for a safari tour is 5 years. Younger children can visit a husky or reindeer farm, where they can ride a sleigh . Young children will also be enchanted by a visit to Santa Claus.
