Arctic wildlife safari with snowmobile
Ofelaš Icelandic horses & Guide Service
This is a tour where we head out in the forest and mountain area on snowmobile, to look for tracks and wildlife. Welcome to join!
Welcome to follow our local guide for an amazing day in the mountains and forest. After picking you up with car at your hotel we take you to our starting point close to the Kalix river where we with modern, environmental-friendly snowmobiles go on this tour. We drive through the montane forest where there is great opportunity to see the king of the forest, the moose.
Here is the winter grazing land for the moose. With luck, we can also see capercaillie, the forest’s largest poultry. It is a powerful experience to see it flying up. The mountain forest trail meanders up on the bare mountain and at the tree line we have great chances to see the characteristic grouse in full winter glory. When we pass the tree line open breathtaking views that etches itself into your memory for long time, and do not forget your camera with charged batteries. Here are the reindeer’s kingdom, here has reindeer wandered in ancient times and people have gotten protection, food, warmth and life from them.
Your Sami guide tells about our history, the daily life of the modern reindeer herder and threats that fades up towards the Arctic indigenous peoples. We continue our round trip on the Arctic tundra with good chances to find traces of both wolverine and lynx. The mountain’s big predators are timid, but the tracks in the snow tell stories about the past night’s hunting. If we are lucky we might see a glimpse of the hare when it anxiously leaps off.
After an eventful day in the mountains the day ends with a late lunch with some typical Sami dishes for the season. All while the polar twilight descends over the mountains outside our lunch spot. After lunch we bring you back to your hotel.
