Snowmobile Safari

The daytime snowmobile safari starts after arrival from Tromsø, around 10:15.

About half way we switch drivers on the snowmobile, as you are driving in pairs. This so that everyone will get a chance to drive a snowmobile. You will spend ca 2 hrs on the snowmobile

Returning to basecamp around 12:30 you will be served a hot meal in a traditional lavvo, sitting around the open fire.
