Snowmobiling in the Arctic
The winter wilderness regions we feature in Finland, Norway and Sweden beg to be explored, and a snowmobile is the ideal mode of transport for such a venture. With thousands of kilometres of trails criss-crossing dramatic fells, forests and frozen lakes, a snowmobile safari allows you to travel further afield in an unforgettable way.
Snowmobiling on an Artisan holiday
Travelling by snowmobile is an adrenaline rush, and can be experienced at the level to suit you. Choose from a short distance trip to sample this pastime, a day-long adventure or take on an overnight trip where you will travel over 100km per day and stay in wilderness camps.
Snowmobiling is often referred to as a bucket list experience, but it can be daunting to experience one for the first time. Rest assured, our expert guides provide you with comprehensive tuition and a safety briefing before you go on any trails.
You will learn about the rules of the road as traffic laws apply in the same way as cars and drivers must be over the age of 18 with a full driving licence to take the controls. Our Artisan Travel Experts can provide full details and once you have booked your trip, we also send you documents with everything you need to know.
We highly recommend the experience to anybody, but if you decide you do not wish to ride on a snowmobile, many of our holidays offer the chance to enjoy the journey in a sleigh ride pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. This is a leisurely alternative that still allows you to explore the surroundings. Please speak to our Artisan Travel Experts if you have any questions.
How snowmobiling is vital to life in Lapland
Since their introduction in the late ‘50s, snowmobiles have become central to life in the Arctic Circle. The use of snowmobiles has even been adopted by the traditional Sámi reindeer herders of Lapland, whose lives have been transformed by their ability to follow their herds in this way. Snowmobiles are now intrinsic to daily life and the economy of these areas.
During your holiday, a snowmobiling adventure will not only give you a taste of life in Lapland, it’s also an extremely exciting way to explore this stunning part of the world!
