SNOWMOBILE SAFARIS

Put on a driving suit, shoes, gloves and a helmet - start the engine - the adventure in the exciting landscape of Himos begins. There's forest, fields, open ice of the lake and enjoyable sights. On the way we stop at the camp fire and re-energize with a packed snack. Momentarily we stop to help a fellow driver from a deep snow or just have break and see what's opening up around us. Book a sauna and top off the day sitting in the sauna' with the heat surrounding you.

Snowmobile excursions: introductory-, half day-, whole day-, and night safari plus longer safaris which can include overnights. Please ask, we organize!
