We own a high quality Wilderness center of Paanajärvi located between Pääjärvi- and Tsipringa -lake at the root of Päänuorunen-mountain in Viena Karelia. There are beautiful wilderness sceneries all around the Wilderness center.
In this wilderness the nature, the animals and the human live in a natural harmony. The peace and the pure untouched nature are present here. This wilderness is the paradiese of a backwoodsman. The high fish population of the lakes and the dense animal population offer our customers unforgettable memories during the safaris.

In the Wilderness center the accommondation is organized in modern log apartmets. In our restaurant we serve our customers three course meals. Together with our professional guides and other staff we ensure high quality service for our customers. This way your Russian safari will be safe.

This snowmobile safari is for the people that want to experience the thrill of snowmobiling in one of the greatest wildernesses of Europe. During this  wilderness adventure we will enjoy driving on maintained routes, fishing the Arctic charr, The sea trout and the European perch. We will also make some unforgettable memories at the restaurant of the Wilderness center.

There is no traffic on our routes. The routes are our own routes and they are well maintained. The routes start from Finland and even during the long safaris we don't drive the same routes multible times. The snowmobiles are new and there is an own snowmobile reserved for each person. In the winter 2019 we use new Crossover snowmobiles.

The safari starts at Kuusamo or Rovaniemi from where we will tranfer to the boarder-crossing  station of Salla. The boarder sation is open every day so the safari can begin and end on any day of the week. Planning the snowmobiling trip to the Wilderness Center is very easy!
