    It was really great fun! First we scootered through the forest and later over swamps. A nice piece to drive. Our guide gave us time to photograph beautiful spots and to make a movie. Also nice to borrow a snow everywhere and the possibility for other stuff. You are together on a snowmobile but you can switch at different times. All in all, very successful!

    Quite a unique experience, as you get to ride through a beautiful forest and see fantastic landscapes. Our guide, Sameer, was great, a really cool dude and he made the experience even better. A BIG downside is that it is extremely CO2 intensive, meaning that the snowmobile not only exhausts a huge amount of carbon into the atmosphere, but that you breathe in all that pollution rather than clean air. I suggest booking a tour that lasts for 2 hours MAX, otherwise you’ll be chocking

    Booked the snowmobile safari as a family and were very happy with the way it went. The winter landscape is incredibly beautiful and we were able to enjoy it during the stops. Our guide was great. He explained the handling of the snowmobile in a clear and understandable way and always paid attention to the safety of the participants on the trip. All in all a successful excursion. I can only recommend.
