How to dress for our winter activities

Welcome to the overall world!

You come to one of our office’s dressing rooms. At this point you can just leave your jacket in one of our hangers, and take off your shoes or boots.

Your own clothing

You can keep your base and mid layer on.

  1. Long- thermal underwear
  2. Socks: cotton socks worn under woollen socks
  3. Trousers: loose-fitting, fleece, cotton or similar
  4. Shirt: Loose-fitting, high collar, cotton or similar
  5. Sweater: wool, fleece or similar

Lapland Safaris equipment

The guides will assist you giving you the equipment, normally in this order:

  1. WOOLLEN SOCKS:  put them on the top of your own socks
  2. BOOTS: At least one size bigger than your usual size. Loose-fitting shoes keep your feet warmer! The boots consists in an outer boot and an inner boot of compressed wool.
  3. SNOWMOBILE OVERALL: You have already put on the socks and the boots. Now it is time to get the overall on. Unzip the overall legs and you’ll be able to put your leg through easily even with the boots on. Close all the zips!
  4. BALACLAVA
  5. MITTENS
  6. HELMET
  7. SCARF AND WOOLLEN HAT: Most probably you come to Lapland with your own hat, but in case you prefer to use ours, we have them available for you.

The sizes

As said, the guides will help you to find the right size for you. If you expect to dress in very tight and sexy clothes, you will soon realise that this is not a surf school: welcome to Lapland! Everything feels a bit bigger than your normal clothes, and it might feel a bit weird to walk around.

And don’t worry about sizes, we have them for all. From children of 1 or 2 years old to big guys: just think about a shoe size 51-52 (European size) and XXXL overalls. So no worries, you’ll fit in.

Children first

In case that you are travelling with your kids, dress them first. As soon as you’re ready, tell it to your guide and wait outside before you start sweating.

Can I take the equipment to my hotel room?

Normally you will dress in the safari office before the departure of the activity and, as said at the beginning of the post, you’ll leave there your jacket and shoes. When the activity is over, you return the equipment and get back to your own clothes.

But in case you book three or more activities you can take the equipment with you to your hotel room (or cabin) and return it after the last activity. A sack will be given to you for transporting the equipment with you.
