Russian border expedition by Snowmobile (4 hours) - Departure 13:00
Hop on a snowmobile and join us for an adventure exploring the Russian border near Kirkenes
For this tour you will be picked up from the Kirkenes city center (your chosen hotel: Scandic or Thon) at 13:00. After a short ride (15-20 min), you will reach Snowhotel Kirkenes, where preparations for the tour will take place. Before turning on the engine, the professional guides will give you a short briefing on how to operate the snowmobiles and provide you with necessary safety equipment and clothing to keep you warm and comfortable during your adventure. Once you are ready for your journey, our experts will guide you far into the Pasvik Valley through beautiful forests, a part of the primordial Russian taiga and arctic landscapes to the Russian border at the Pasvik River. Two people will be sharing a snowmobile each, one as a driver and the other as a passenger with the opportunity of switching places along the way. In the end you will be only meters away from our great neighbor in the East. On the way there, there will be a picnic lunch stop included to keep the energy levels up.
After the tour you will be driven back to your hotel to reminisce about your day’s adventure.
Note! In order to drive the snowmobile, you need to be minimum 18 years old and hold a valid driver's license. Children below the age of 10 years old are not permitted.
