Valid driving licence must be presented. Thermal suits and helmets are provided. Children under the age of 15 can only be passengers. Because the excursion runs late, it is recommended to either take the evening flight out of Kirkenes or to overnight in town.
Arriving at our start point by bus, we’ll first gear up with helmets and thermal suits that’ll keep us safe and warm during the ride. Our guides will then give us thorough instructions on how to properly operate a snowmobile. We’ll drive in pairs, allowing each person to take turns driving and relaxing as a passenger.
Feel a rush of adrenalin as you start up your snowmobile. We’ll then set off across the snow into the stunning Arctic winter landscape. A highlight might be scooting across a frozen fjord or climbing a ridge that reveals an amazing view of the mountains.
Experienced guides will also talk about the Arctic climate, the indigenous, nomadic Sámi population, and local wildlife. We end our trip with a hot drink and some dried reindeer meat.
