Are you a thrill seeker and love outdoor adventures? Let our professional Luleå snowmobiling tour guides take you on a journey through the diverse wilderness of Luleå region on one of the fastest forms of transport over snow. If you have never driven a snowmobile before then you’ll be amazed how easy it is. Your guide will give full training on how to handle the snowmobile and give you general rules and advice for driving.
There are no gears on a snowmobile, so this makes it super easy to drive – just accelerate or break using the controls on the handle bars! On most forest tours, snowmobiles will drive on a trail which is marked by red markers on trees, some containing destination names to help with guidance throughout the area. Don’t worry, in all cases you will be accompanied by your professional guide who will know the area well. You will also be given a hard helmet to wear – this prevents branches from trees from hitting your face as well as protect you if it’s snowing or very cold.
Popular stop-off places during the tours include ice-fishing spots on Luleå’s Archipelago, or you may even want to chase the Northern Lights on an evening tour. Other tours also offer lunch which is always welcomed on longer snowmobile tours of 4 hours or more. There are various lunch places to stop en-route, usually where a stone or steel fireplace has been prepared, with a fresh supply of forest logs. One of the most popular foods for lunch is fried reindeer meat – Frying over a hot fire and served on bread. The Swedes love to have ‘fika’ – this is basically coffee and cake and helps keep your energy levels high for driving your snowmobile.
Booking your activity – To avoid disappointment, we recommend booking your snowmobile tours 48 hours in advance. Although, some tours run at short notice and realtime availability will be displayed to the right of the screen for each tour.
We hope you have the experience of driving a snowmobile in Luleå this winter!
