This expedition puts everything into the shade what you've experienced so far - the superlatives of snowmobile driving! Based on 750miles through the white wilderness of Lapland "learn" you everything what the Arctic north can offer: Endless forests, endless lakes, narrow valleys and snowy mountains. On the expedition come you and your snowmobile together to a unit that must overcome all difficulties, by defeating high peaks up to dig in loose snow. You can expect no less than a long-distance travel by snowmobile through the fantastic winter landscapes.
After you have arrived Sorsele we will have in the evening a first meeting of the expedition members and a discussion of the route. The next day we take the snowmobiles and go out on a tour of the mountains and forests around the village (about 60 miles).
On the second day we start on tour. After equipment and vehicles were checked again we go further and further to the north. The first expedition days it goes primarily through vast forests and along rivers to the Arctic Circle. After five days we reached the entrance to the National Park "Sarek". Here we place in a cozy mountain station a well deserved rest day. The onward journey leads us increasingly to the mountains and back south. Now the high mountains along the trail are our constant companions. Considering the avalanche situation we climb with the snowmobile some peaks. After another two days we reach the Sami village Ammarnäs. Here we visit a fascinating exhibition about flora and fauna of Vindelfjällen, Europe's largest nature reserve, which we the next day drive through partially.
After a total of 11 days we will come back to Sorsele.. Departure the next morning.
