Full description
Combine ice karting and snowmobiling, two of the most exhilarating experiences that Lapland has to offer. Begin the activity with the qualifying rounds for karting on the icy, open race track. Set your best lap-time and secure the starting position. Then, enjoy a well-deserved break around the open fire with hot beverages. When everyone is ready, begin the race.  Be the fastest and finish before your colleagues, friends, or family. The ice karts are powerful, winter go-karts with silent, four-stroke engines and winter tires studded with spikes. Every year the ice track is rebuilt with improvements and every kart is fitted with a transponder to ensure an accurate reading of the lap times. On the 500 to 550-meter track, there are plenty of spots for drifting, speeding up, and passing. The walls are protected with snow to prevent damage to the karts or injuries to the riders. Upon arrival, you'll receive your professional gear and a safety briefing led by a knowledgable guide with years of experience, and get kitted up in high-quality clothing, gloves, and equipment. During the karting, children who cannot reach the pedals can hop aboard a mini snowmobile. The mini snowmobiles are perfect for children from approximately 6 to 10 and are operated on a safe track of 100 meters with nonstop supervision.  After the race, it's time for snowmobiling. Listen to a briefing on how to safely operate the snowmobiles and head off through a frozen river valley and snow-covered forests.

In general well, what happens that for children there is no children's kart, but we have been super punctual, the excursion has been as specified here, everything is fine, as it would mean there was no water, I asked, and there was only the hot juice they offered but if you didn't like it, I understand that they don't give me a soda but water ... it would have been nice
