Snowmobile Trips to the Bothnia Sea
For a one-of-a-kind adventure, we invite you to jump on a snowmobile and ride your way through one of the coolest trips to Lapland! You will glide over the iced waters of the wintery Bothnia Sea, a body of water located in the southern part of the Baltic Sea, between Sweden and Finland. Our professional guide will lead your journey through all the majestic and unforgettable nature of Lapland.
While this safari is certainly a travel experience that brings you back-to-nature, we must point out that the most authentic trips to Lapland would be experienced on a reindeer sleigh. For your comfort, we’ve made this experience more high-tech. (But let us know if you’re a descendant of the indigenous Sami people – and we can swap your snowmobile for a sled!)
Itinerary for this one-day excursion:
We start in Kemi, a town located in the Gulf of Bothnia and home of the famous Snow Castle, the largest one in the world. Our experienced guide will distribute all the equipment you need for snowmobiling, as well as give a brief lesson on how to ride. It’s similar to driving a motorcycle! Once you are geared up in your padded suit, gloves, scarves, helmets and thermal accessories, we’ll set off.
As a group, we’ll drive along the Bothnia Sea and cross the borders of both Finland and Sweden. The whole time, you will be surrounded by magical snow-covered scenery under the arctic sky. You will glimpse the fells of Lapland (mountain-like formations) and hopefully catch sight of reindeer in their habitat. The views will remind you of a perfect winter wonderland, untouched by the noise, pollution, and commotion of city life and industry.
We’ll take a break to warm up with a local lunch of sausages and hot drinks.
Time to return to Kemi. After the snowmobile safari, you can stretch your legs and explore the quaint shops and cafes of this charming seaside town near the Arctic Circle.
It is impossible to describe any trips to Lapland without mentioning the Northern Lights. Once the stars come out and the moonlight glows, you’ll be treated to one of the most exotic and glamorous night shows in the world! It is a fantastic ending to your day exploring this region.
