After breakfast our guides will pick you up at the hotel in city for short briefing and transfer to start point. Here your guides will equip you with thermal rescue overalls and other equipment as helmets, gloves and balaclavas.
The Expedition starts with an educational part where your guides inform about safety and security and ice rescue, and how to handle the 500 cc touring snow-mobiles. Then we start our expedition towards the frozen archipelago. We will pass through the Archipelago with all its different characters of nature from forest covered islands to the endless white desert. We will pass the fishing harbour on Hindersön from 1700th century with lot of history and culture.
We make a stop at the beautiful Jopikgården Inn for coffee and waffle. After the break and if mother nature and ice conditions allows we will try to reach out to the drift ice area with the spectacular view that reminds of the Arctic at Brändöskär, we make a short visit to the small chapel at this island . After a half day of snow-mobile driving we reach Kluntarna, a fantastic and special Island with a real arctic character, here we make a stop in the wind sheltered bay for our outdoor lunch sitting on reindeer skins around the campfire.
Chances to see moose, reindeer and other wildlife are normally good. After Lunch we make a snowshoe trekking tour to the highest peak of the island through the spectacular and beautiful primary forest. Back at the snowmobiles we continue to Bastaskär to look at the well preserved shipwreck.
