Pack Ice Nature Tour 4 hours from Brändön by Snowmobile

Join a fantastic nature and culture adventure to the Luleå Archipelago and explore the glistening fields of ice and snow and the forested islands on a snowmobile! Along the way our guide will tell you about the nature, wildlife and geology as well as our life in the northern wilderness.

Our fellow explorers are offered lunch, hot beverages and a chance to try ice-fishing on the journey. One possible destination of the tour is the island Brändöskär in the outermost reaches of the Luleå archipelago. An idyllic fishing village dating from the 17th century with a timber chapel built in  1774. Brändöskär also boasts a large number of fishermen cottages which today are still owned by local residents and used more so now as as nature getaways.

Outside the islands is the frozen Bothnian bay with its seemingly endless fields of pack ice and snow. Some years the blue ice of the sea piles up into formations about 10 metres high – a mighty experience! The lunch for the day is cooked over an open fire by your guide while we talk about the nature and culture of the islands.

Snowmobile overalls, boots, socks, warm gloves, fleece suit, hood for underneath the helmet and helmet are provided for guests.

We recommend that all clients have their own travel insurance that covers adventure activities to cover unforeseen circumstances.
