Full description
Venture far into the wilderness and experience the mountains of the far north on a snowmobile safari. Keep an eye out for the northern lights as you explore a snow-covered valley and marvel at the majestic scenery.

Meet at the Magic Ice Bar in Tromsø and hop on a bus to the wilderness center of the Tromsø Ice Domes. Upon arrival, get kitted out in all the warm clothes and necessary, and receive a thorough safety introduction and practical demonstration. You don't need any previous skills to drive a snowmobile, all you need is to be in reasonable physical shape.

Once you're ready, set out on your adventure. Drive in pairs with one driver and one passenger on each snowmobile, with the opportunity to switch places during the trip. Pass scenic mountains and make your way through the dramatic snow-covered Finn valley.

You will be on the snowmobiling track for approximately 2 hours, depending on the weather and snow conditions. During the tour, make a few stops to enjoy the breathtaking nature around you and, if you're lucky, gaze upon the northern lights. Due to the dramatic topography, a reduced speed is maintained during parts of the tour.
