Snowmobiles – An Incredible Journey!
This is the Arctic and this is the wilderness – conditions are naturally unpredictable and the exact itinerary is not the same from day to day.

1pm: Collection for this exclusive tour where your destination is the end of the road in the Sami village of Nikkaluokta. This road is popular for moose watching excursions as moose and reindeer are regularly seen grazing at the road side – keep your camera close by!

2pm: Father and son team, Andreas and Nils Sarri (who have Sami heritage), will provide you with warm outer clothing and give you comprehensive instructions about how to drive your snowmobile through the wilderness to Lake Láddjujávri. Time for a fika (coffee and cake) before exploring some more. Perhaps light a fire, gather round, get to know each other and scan the sky for the northern lights.

5pm: Back to the cabins and time to relax and enjoy the silence of nature. Sauna and a roll in the snow perhaps.

7.30pm Evening meal served in the iconic restaurant. Fingers crossed for northern lights.
