Safari in Lapland is a great excursion or activity during the Winter time. You can combine them with other winter activities, like dog sled tours, snowmobile safaris, and skiing. The safari is a great experience for children as well. They can learn about Lapland’s nature and wildlife in a fun way.
1. The Safari is a great way to see the Lapland nature and wildlife
You will visit different natural environments of Northern Finland: swamps, forests, rivers, lakes, and mountains. You will see all kinds of animals in their natural habitat. Likewise, you can ride with the reindeer, feed them and even touch them. Not only that, but you will also see other animals like foxes and bears. In addition to them, you can also spot wild deer, wolves, elks, eagles, and many more!
2. There are many options for a Safari in Lapland
You can either go to the wilderness with just your own car or take a safari bus from Rovaniemi. The most popular option is to visit one of the many reindeer farms, where you can meet the animals and learn about their living conditions.
There are also many safari operators in Lapland, but we recommend you to use the services of local tour operator — Scandinavian Travel Group (STG). STG will provide you with the best service, and they know the area better than anybody else. They have more than 25 years' experience in organising group tours in Lapland.
3. Safari takes you through the beautiful snow-covered forests and meadows
It is a great way to see Lapland from the back of a reindeer wagon. The driver will tell you about the history of Lapland, its nature and wildlife. He might even sing for you! The most popular safari activity is reindeer Safari in Lapland.
4. Reindeer Safari in Lapland
Reindeer safaris are popular activities in Lapland, and there is no shortage of companies offering them. You can go on a reindeer safari by yourself or with a guide, depending on your preferences.
If you choose to go on a reindeer safari by yourself, it will be much more expensive than when you have the support of an expert guide. The cost of renting a car from Rovaniemi Airport to Levi (where many companies offer their services) is approximately €85-150 per day.
If you need accommodation along the way, there are plenty of options available at reasonable prices (€150-200 per person). If you want something more luxurious, expect to pay quite a bit more money — but who wouldn't want luxury when visiting Lapland?
If you want to stay in a quieter Finnish town with your family, we recommend the resort of Levi, where you can find the best accommodation options from Scandinavian Tavel Group.
If you're interested in reindeer safaris, there are a lot of companies to select from. But STG include unique service with visiting old Reindeer Farm. This is a fun program for the whole family, from just 69 euros. You will visit an old reindeer farm that is over 150 years old. There is another exclusive family program from €89.

5. Husky Safari in Lapland
If you're interested in seeing the world from an unusual perspective, a Husky Safari could be for you. These dogs are highly active and energetic, and they love being around people. They're also social creatures who enjoy spending time with other dogs as well as humans.
This makes them excellent pets for those who want companionship while still having some space to themselves! In addition to their friendly nature, huskies are known for their intelligence and loyalty — two qualities that make them great at sledding when trained appropriately.
The huskies used on these tours are all trained by Lapland's famous Husky School located just outside Rovaniemi. The school has been running since 1949 when it was founded by two Finnish brothers who wanted to teach others how best to utilize this amazing breed of the dog during winter months (which lasts up until June).
Not only do these specially-trained animals pull sleds over snow-covered landscapes, but they also help keep tourists safe along their trek through wild forests full of bears & wolves (not really though).
This safari is perfect for those who love huskies, the wilderness, and Lapland. Explore the pure nature of Lapland and enjoy a 5 or 10-km track with Lapland huskies. You can choose your trip length between 45 min — 1 hour or more. The trip for 1 person is from €119, including guiding, gingerbread cookies, hot berry juice, and winter clothing in case needed.

6. Snowmobile Safari in Lapland
A snowmobile safari is an excellent way to enjoy the winter wonderland of Lapland. It's also a great option for those who want to do something outdoors but don't have a lot of time or money to spend on their vacation.
Snowmobiles are used as transportation in the wintertime when roads aren't safe to drive on due to ice and snow. They're also used for recreation during the warmer months as well —they can be rented at many outdoor activity centers throughout Finland, where they take tourists around remote parts of northern Finland on thrilling rides through forests and over lakes.
A snowmobile safari is a great way to see the beautiful scenery of Lapland and get up close with its wildlife. It's also a fun activity for those who want to experience the thrill of driving their own vehicle at high speeds over snow-packed terrain.
STG’s snowmobile safari is a safe and fun way to explore the nature of Lapland. They will transfer you to their snowmobile base in Levi, where they will collect warm clothing and boots, then begin the family safari. Scandinavian Travel Group’s experienced tour guides make sure everyone has an amazing time, with instructions on driving and safety. After an hour-long tour, you will return for hot drinks (a small charge applies).
