Snowmobiles are, without any doubt on our mind, the best (and most fun) way to get out in to the backcountry. And back. During this fun safari, you’ll first learn how to drive the snowmobiles and then head out along frozen rivers and through forests covered with snow. The objective is to get to the top of the fell, for magnificent views back across the river valley. Expect to be out for about two hours. Trips usually operate in the late afternoon.
All the necessary equipment is provided (thermo-overall, mittens, socks, boots, balaclava & helmet) and insurance for the snowmobile is covered. However, the driver of the snowmobile is held liable for damages caused to the vehicle to a max of €800. You can either drive alone or you can have a travel companion on board as a passenger (wrap up warm!) and, in these instances, it is usually possible to switch drivers during the safari. You must hold a valid driving license to take the controls and children can ride as passengers or, alternatively, the younger kids are placed in a sled behind the guides snowmobile on shorter safaris.
