Russian Border Expedition by Snowmobile

Are you ready to catch the Arctic wind? Snowhotel Kirkenes offer Snowmobile excursions with several departures every day. We go far into the Pasvik Valley to the Russian border at the Pasvik River, through beautiful forest landscape, and in the end you are only metres away from our great neighbour in the east.

From its invention, the snowmobile has been as important as the car in Kirkenes and Northern Scandinavia. The sami embraced it first, for reindeer herding, and others soon saw its use for means of travel and transportation. Snowhotel Kirkenes has provided snowmobile tours for a long time, and we have the experience and knowledge to offer a snowmobile adventure worthy of a once in a lifetime Norwegian winter holiday.

Riding a snowmobile can be challenging, but with professional guides, with intimate insight of arctic nature and conditions, and state-of the-art skidoos, you will be perfectly safe on the snowmobile safari, and at the same time have great FUN!

Note! In order to drive the snowmobile, you need to be minimum 18 years old and hold a valid driver's license. Children below the age of 10 are not allowed
