Went on a snow mobile safari, the staff were fab in explaining everything, provided great overalls helmets gloves and boots. I was very nervous but soon got the hang of things and the guides were brilliant.

This is a must! Two hours on the snowmobiles which are surprisingly fast and if you're lucky like we were you'll stop in the middle of nowhere and see the northern lights! AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!
