Snowmobiling is pure fun for those who love snow and motors.
It’s a means of transport for exploring woods, trails, any route, as long as it’s covered by snow.
It’s also a fun way to drive, especially in fresh snow for those who are more experienced 😉
HOW IT WORKS
Snowmobile tours can be of different difficulty, depending on the environment and terrain.
Beaten tracks or fresh snow, woods or snow-covered meadows but also frozen lakes. The difficulty lies in the more or less dense presence of obstacles, such as trees, but also ditches or hidden holes. For the rest you drive quite easily, even for those who have never ridden a motorcycle.
Instead of wheels, it has two beautiful skis, which allow it to run quickly, both downhill and uphill.
Some snowmobiles have heated grips and seats, which, I promise, make the difference, especially on the duration of the excursion.
The excursions are guided, above all because the snow could have covered indications and “obstacles” that it’s good to know for your own safety.
With the snowmobile it’s also possible to make multi-day tours, such as in Svalbald, or in Lapland, hunting for white bears and northern lights.
WHEN TO GO
In order to use the snowmobile it’s necessary that the ground is covered by a layer of sufficient snow.
So in winter, or the whole year where the snow never melts.
