Jukkasjärvi - Snowmobile Arctic Wildlife Safari


Join a guided snowmobile tour in the unspoiled wilderness surrounding Jukkasjärvi, drive to the most hidden parts of the forest where moose gather during winter to graze. As moose is a shy animal, it is not guaranteed that they will appear but the chances are good. You might even see tracks from large predators such as wolverines and lynx.

During the day you will travel by snowmobile through pristine mountain forest, a frozen world full of life. If the weather permits, you will go up the mountains to learn more about the living conditions for the mountain residents: wolverine, reindeer, hare and grouse. Along the journey, you will learn more about how to interpret tracks in the snow, nature’s own dictionary. The tour is led by local guides with great knowledge of the flora and fauna in this area, and in harmony with the local inhabitant and reindeer herders. Lunch with local ingredients will be served during, or in connection with the safari, the location will be determined by weather and season. This snowmobile safari offers a unique opportunity to learn more about the arctic mountains and wild life.

The length of the tour will be determined by the season and the weather conditions.
