ATV Safaris

Available from September to May, other times by request.

Let’s head to the roads less traveled, off the beaten path! Himos-Safari -guides will lead you to the forest trails and small sandy roads behind the Himos hilltops. There are routes which are suitable for drivers without driving experience and more bumpy ones to break up a sweat. A glimpse of Lake Päijänne, coffee break by the laavu (lean-to-shelter) on the shore of a spring based lake – who knows, maybe you get to kiss a moose on the way?



PATAJOKI SAFARI – Strictly  driving

This 1,5 hour safari concentrates in the main thing – driving. After an introduction on how to handle the vehicle we will discover the Himos Resort from different angles. Depending of the season we will drive through small winding sandy roads or head to the forest paths. A quick stop for pictures up on Himos hilltops is a must.


Duration about 1,5 hours
Price 102 € / person, 79 € / person (2 people sharing vehicle)

– Driving and a coffee break at Moose Manor

First we will go through the basics on handling the ATV-vehicles before taking off. We will make a tour around Himos Resort before heading to the backwoods to an enchanting little zoo-park called The Moose Manor. The family run restaurant and zoo-park are located in a farmhouse built in the 18th Century. Moose Manor is the only place in Finland where you can cuddle and kiss forest moose. There are also fallow deer and reindeer in the park. After taking several #moosies and giving kisses we will also enjoy coffee and house pie in the manor’s idyllic main room or tupa before heading back towards Himos.

Duration about 2,5 hours
Price 132 € / person, 104 € / person (2 people sharing vehicle)


– Driving and a snack break by the campfire

After getting introduction on handling the vehicle we will embark on the 2,5 hour safari. On the way we will breeze through the network of small village roads behind Himos hilltops that cover the Cape Jämsä. The journey will take us  all the way to the Patajoki bridge where Lake Päijänne comes into full view. We will stop for a snack break by the campfire at Lake Yläinen-Liesjärvi where we will grill sausages and enjoy coffee and juice enjoying the silence surrounding this small clear watered lake in the middle of forest.

Duration about 2,5 hours
Price 132€ / person, 104 € / person (2 people sharing vehicle)
