Welcome to the total silence of winter! Yes, you can really walk on the sea in Finland, at least during winter when the whole Gulf of Finland is frozen.
The winter landscape in the archipelago has an amazing calming effect and helps you forget the stress of everyday life. Our greatest pleasure is to introduce you to the unique Finnish nature.
Our most popular activity in winter season is our snowmobile safari, that take place only 25 minutes away from the center of Helsinki. We also have a snowmobile sleigh that is suitable for winter tours for up to 10 persons.
We also organise kicksled tours or or snowshoe hikes depending on ice and snow condition from our winter base in Sipoo. Tracking deer, elk, wolves, lynx, fox and other wildlife on snowshoes is an amazing way to discover this area and to get closer to nature.
During your tour you will enjoy hot drinks and snacks by a campfire. You will also have a chance to try ice fishing during your tour.
If you are looking for an activity more artistic and for a bigger group, then an ice sculpting competition would be a good alternative.
For those who like to try something different we organise frisbee golf combined with snowshoes or curling either in a hockey arena or outdoors on the frozen sea.
Experience snowy wilderness outside Helsinki on a snowmobile tour. With an experienced guide, travel through the winter landscape on the frozen Gulf of Finland. You’ll take a break to warm up with hot drinks by a campfire. Two adults ride on one snowmobile, or you can upgrade if you want one to yourself. Located about 19 miles (30 km) east of Helsinki city centre, the snowmobile base will be reached with provided round-trip hotel transport.
We offer different snowmobile tours. You can choose from a 3 hour snowmobile safari or a 2 days long snowmobile tour or something in between.
