Activity description

Explore the stunning wilderness around Kirkenes on this 4-hour snowmobiling safari to Pasnik Valley with lunch and transfer included. Welcoming ages 10 and up! 

Norway's Pasvik Valley is a remarkable destination for nature lovers, offering an immersive experience in the heart of the Arctic wilderness. The valley also includes the Pasvik Nature Reserve, a protected area designed to preserve the unique and diverse ecosystems of the region. The nature reserve is one of the largest protected wilderness areas in mainland Norway and covers more than 4,300 square kilometres (1,660 square miles). A popular winter pastime for locals and tourists, snowmobiling might just be the perfect way to explore the stunning winter landscapes of the Pasvik Valley! 

Your adventure begins in Kirkenes, where you will be picked up at either the Thon or Scandic Hotels (please specify when booking). After the scenic, 15-minute drive to the Snowhotel, you'll put on your winter gear, which includes thermal overalls, boots, mittens, and a balaclava. Then, you'll be greeted by your experienced guide who will provide a safety briefing along with an introduction to snowmobiling. The fun starts after you and your group (a maximum number of 20 participants) have put on your helmets! 

You'll discover the thrill of driving through Norway's winter wonderland as you set out onto the frozen ice of the fjord towards the Pasvik Valley. Passing by snow-capped pine forests, as well as frozen lakes, and marshes, you'll stop at a charming cabin for a picnic lunch with warm juice. Adult drivers can also switch places during the excursion, provided they are both in possession of a valid driver's license. You'll return to the Snowhotel before the transfer back to your accommodations in Kirkenes, delighted by your amazing afternoon!
