Snowmobile

price from 2395 €

A fantastic ride across the Arctic polar circle.
The landing runway is white and icy but as the plane confidently lands, it creates a white whirlwind of frozen snowflakes… Far away, one can imagine a herd of wolfs howling…

The sun rays glitter and reflect on the snowdrifts and as we drive over immense frozen Lake Inari, Lapland’s 1080 km2 sacred lake, golden dust twists and twirls in the wake of our vehicles. As we will navigate across the immaculate white desert, tracing our very own tracks, we will feel both slightly anxious and very thrilled as we drive off into the unknown…
