Safaris

Safaris in Lapland

A Lapland holiday is not complete without at least one winter safari – and preferably all of them! For over 20 years, Inghams has worked closely with local tour operators to ensure our guests receive the best value winter safaris in Lapland. We offer the chance to participate in each of the ‘Big 3’ safaris: reindeer, husky, and snowmobile.

Reindeer are the traditional livelihood for the indigenous Sami community, and a Reindeer Safari and Farm Visit is a great insight into the soul of Lapland. Huskies are full of character, with their distinctive ice-blue or piercing, brown eyes and love of running, a Husky Safari is a wild and thrilling experience. The Snowmobile Safari might not have the romanticism of more traditional and natural safaris, but no other safari gets you further into the immense Lapland wilderness.
