It was an amazing experience. In general it was not crowdy and our group was only 2 snowmobiles. Ours and this from our guide. The route was beautiful! Although for my standards was very cold (-14, -15 degrees) , that day was very sunny. We have been provided all we need to be comfortable ( snow suits, gloves, helmets, balaclava, boots, socks)
