Volunteer Rescue Team

Lapland Safaris is a part of the volunteer rescue team of Lapland. Our role in Vapepa (Vapaaehtoinen pelastuspalvelu) is to help Police and Rescue Department in searching lost or injured persons in wilderness areas. The staff members that take part in the volunteer rescue operations have special training in search & rescue and first aid. Lapland Safaris takes safety seriously and we want to contribute to the local community by providing our resources to the use of local Rescue Departments an Police. The system shown in the video is the Mapitare GPS location software that we have been developing in cooperation with the software developer and local rescue department. It means that our staff can share their location with the rescue department in order to speed up rescue operations in nature. Especially in winter, every minute counts in getting injured person to warm and hospital.

Social and environmental responsibility

The nature of Lapland is the most sensitive member of our team. We observe the principles of sustainable development and scale all of our activities according to the tolerance of the natural environment. We guide our guests to respect nature and to get close with it in a Lappish way, allowing them to enjoy their contact with nature with a clean conscience.

Environmental friendly

Mother Nature is our main partner in production and we do all in our power to take good care of her. At this moment over 80% of our snowmobile fleet is equipped with 4-stroke engines which are more environmental friendly than the 2-stroke snowmobiles, having a lower consumption of fuel, oil and emissions.

While we are changing our fleet into 4-stroke engine vehicles, we work to find other solutions to becoming greener. We are the only tourism company involved in the eSled project, which is developing 100% electrical snowmobiles. Last year we were already testing the first prototypes and hopefully we will be able to use them for our safaris soon.


A large part of our services are also run by human power. Welcome to feel the Spirit of Nature by skiing, snowshoeing, by husky- or reindeer sled.

Social responsibility

Lapland Safaris base all of the experiences we provide around Lappish nature and culture. Lappish history and everyday Lappish life also play a vital role, giving us inspiration and stories around which we build programmes and experiences for our guests.

The company employs 50 people around the year, and in our peak season that figure grows to 450 employees. Besides our own crew, the company supports many local suppliers as some 50 % of our sales are made up of services purchased from our suppliers.
