Snowmobile

Snowmobiling is one of the most popular activities at ICEHOTEL, whether you’ve ever seen a snowmobile or not. Each snowmobile tour begins with a brief introduction and by default you sit two people on one snowmobile. If you like to drive your own, you can add that as a supplement when booking.

ICEHOTEL uses the latest snowmobile models and our machine park is upgraded annually to ensure maximum service, passenger and driver safety and comfort, technology and pleasure during your tour. All our vehicles are maintained according to manufacturers’ manuals. All iCEHOTEL snowmobile tours are led by one certified guide per eight machines.

Our snowmobiles are purchased from contractors who are leading in environmental sustainability.
The machines have four stroke engines that are environmentally friendly and not very noisy so good for our guides and our neighbours too. All vehicles are run on unleaded petrol or environmentally friendly diesel.

All snowmobile tours begin with an induction to the vehicle that you will be driving. Should a damage occur during a tour, the snow- mobile will be inspected and if necessary taken out of service to be repaired until it can run on tour again. in order to drive a snowmobile on a tour operated by iCEHO- TEL, you must be at least 16 years of age and have a driver’s license. if your license has been issued before Jan 1, 2000, you are entitled to drive snowmobile on your own or in connection with a guided tour.
if your license was issued after this date, you are only eligible to drive a snowmobile under the supervision of a certified guide.
