Short Family Safari

Short Family Safari
Daily Departure at 13:00 

Fun for all the family! 

First snow safari available from mid-November depending on prevailing snow and weather conditions. Available only in the First Snow Season, before the actual winter season.

We start with a snowmobile safari with adults on the snowmobile and children traveling safely in sledges. After the traditional snowmobile safari, it is time for children’s snowmobile driving. The smallest family members (2-4 yrs.) get to drive mini skidoos on a safe track under supervision. The midi skidoos (5-14 yrs.) also have a dedicated track and are just what young girls and boys dream of – a replica of an adult snowmobile, but lighter.

There is time to relax by a camp fire also, have a cup of berry juice and fry a sausage as a snack.

Practical Information:

First snow safaris are operated from mid-November or due to prevailing weather and snow conditions. This safari is operated for min 2 persons paying the adult fare (2 persons / snowmobile). 

Snowmobile safaris
Our snowmobiles are locally produced, BRP Lynx Rave, Xtrim and Boondocker–models. We have selected this model, as they are extremely comfortable to drive and as they are gentle to the environment, they are practically smoke and smell free.

Children travel in a sledge pulled by the guide’s snowmobile. In case a child prefers to travel as a passenger of a snowmobile, he / she must be tall enough to reach the handles and treads and strong enough to hold on tight. When a child travels on the snowmobile and not in a sledge pulled by a snowmobile, adult price (2 person / snowmobile) applies.

The snowmobiles and you as the snowmobile driver or passenger are covered by our insurance. The self-liability on damage of snowmobiles is max. 1 000 € / snowmobile. With a self-liability waiver (19 €) you reduce the self-liability to max 299 € / snowmobile. Every safari starts with instructions on driving and safety.

You will always be kitted with proper winter gear: thermal overall, boots, woollen socks, balaclavas and gloves or mittens for our safaris and excursions. Your own jacket and shoes remain at the safari house during the tour.
