Snowmobile – Hunting the Northern Lights

Are you ready to catch the arctic wind? Guided by an expert driver, you will get the chance to drive your own snowmobile into the arctic wilderness to find the Northern Lights. Perfect for couples, who want to share a skidoo and take turns driving.

The diverse arctic landscape makes a surreal experience, and a snowmobile is the perfect means to the reach deep into the wild of the northern frontier. Frozen fjords, a trademark of Northern Norway, sparse tundra, that reaches for miles and miles, the pine forest and frozen lakes of the Pasvik valley will all be your highway. Guided by an expert driver, you will head into the remote hills surrounding Kirkenes, where darkness improves our chances of catching the Aurora Borealis. Two people will be sharing a snowmobile each, one as a driver and the other as a passenger with the opportunity of switching places along the way.

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! Before turning on the engine, the professional guides will give you a short briefing on how to operate the snowmobiles and provide you with necessary safety equipment and clothing to keep you warm and comfortable during your adventure.

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
