After you have met the guide you will receive a warm overall, warm boots, warm gloves and helmet. Balaclava hood is extra for rent if you wish, for 50 SEK.
You will get a short instruction how to drive the snowmobile before the tour starts. After you feel more secure we speed up and start heading over the frozen lakes and through the snowy white forest. Depending how the weather conditions are, fresh snow or perfect flattened trails we can speed up or we must adjust to the heavy snow. Safety comes always first!
Halfway we will stop for a break. If you booked a coffee tour, there will be a short break, a cup of coffee with cake will be served.
If you booked a lunch tour, there will be an open fire, with coffee and light lunch. A great moment to hear more about the Arctic way of life. Enjoy the silence around you, the fresh Arctic air, beautiful midwinter colours in the sky.
After this break we will head home and you can choose to return to your accommodation or you can plan a stop in Jokkmokk for some shopping.
During the coldest months, December, January and February we advice not to bring very young children. That is why we wrote age from 12 years. Children get cold pretty fast, just sitting still. If you have children younger than 12, please ask us. Depending on the temperatures, younger children can sit in a trailer behind the guide and his snowmobile. We will help you the best possible way we can to make it a comfortable experience for young and old.
*Some partners can decide to cancel the tour is the temperatures are coming below minus 20.
*Some guides only book coffee tours until 1st of March because of the extreme cold during Midwinter. We will always check with you, our guest and our partners what options we can offer you! Together we find the best tour for you.
Meet & greet your guide
After you have met the guide, you will be receiving a warm overall and boots and helmet to use during the tour.
A short instruction follows and if you feel good about it, the tour will start. Slowly you get used to drive the snowmobile.
Halfway the tour, there will be a break. After the break, you can change drivers if you share a snowmobile. Have fun and drive safely!

First, we strongly advice you not to ware make-up, cremes nor Vaseline
Usually they are based on aqua and aqua freezes.
If the temperatures are cold you even might "forget" to wash your face, better to do that the evening before. The pharmacy is selling a special cold cream, based on oil. Use that for your skin.
Usually if a child can sit on it´s own, they can follow. It is the temperatures that can be dangerous for children. While they sit still they cool down too fast. That´s why the season is important. March and April are the best months for smaller children.

Vi hade en fantastisk upplevelse.
Skooter turen var underbar med tur up och ner for berget. Vi såg många renar och drack kaffe med utsikt Kan verkligen rekommenderas. Speciellt barnen älskade det.
Var 1000 gånger bättre en vi trott.
Helena är en riktigt genuine Same som verkligen vill visa och dela med sig av hennes familjs historia. Hon lärde oss: om var renarna håller till, vad de äter. Hur man märker dem, och olika ren typer. Visade hur de tränar dem. Vi matade många renar. Åkte autentisk ren pulka som var 100 år gammal.
Sedan lagade Helena en otroligt lunch med rökt kött och korv till förrätt följt up med stekt renskav på varmt bröd och lingon sylt.
Vi hade en otroligt bra upplevelse.
Kan rekommenderas 100 procent.
