This tour provides a shorter and somewhat less challenging course compared to the ride in AC267. Guests will transfer to Sorrisniva via guided bus, and on arrival will receive warm clothing, necessary gear and a safety/operation briefing. The ride, which will last for approximately 30 minutes, follows a snowmobile track through the forest and along the Alta River.
After we have returned from the snowmobiling, there will be a guided tour of the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel. The hotel measures approximately 2000 square meters and the entire exterior and interior is made of snow and ice: the rooms, the beds, even the glasses in the ice bar! Apart from its 30 bedrooms, the Igloo Hotel houses suites, a bar, and several lounges. The hotel is decorated with ice sculptures, which are exquisite works of art. The changing themes every year ensure a unique experience. The tour includes a special drink – “Blue Igloo” – served in an ice glass at the bar.
In order to drive a snowmobile you have to have a driving license for car or other motor vehicles. It is also important that you consider if you are strong enough to handle this machine and the challenges the route can give. If you do not feel strong enough to handle such a vehicle you can sit comfortably as a passenger, or in one of our sleighs with benches and blankets.
