The modern mode of transportation in the Arctic gives you the opportunity to venture far into the wilderness. Experience the mountains of the far north.
We begin with a thorough safety introductiona. You need no previous skills to drive a snowmobile, all you need is normal physical condition. The trail has a distance of 15 km each way, 30 km in total. The starting point is at 250 m above sea level, and the guide brings you up to 875 m. You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each snowmobile, with opportunity to switch places during the trip.
Due to the dramatic topography, a reduced speed is held during parts of the tour. The top point of the trail is a frozen lake, where you can speed up. If time and weather permit, you can try out ice fishing on this lake. At the end of the trip, you will be served a hot meal in a lavvu (Sami tent).
