We ride our eSleds to the top of a hill, far from the city lights – an ideal place for watching the Northern Lights. We stop to observe and admire the night sky and stars, and, if we are lucky, see the Northern Lights as well. The guide is happy to help the guests with camera settings if they wish to take pictures. During the stop we warm ourselves by the fire in a private hunting cabin and enjoy a Finnish style grilling.
Winter clothing, snowmobile instructions and safari 2 persons/eSled, driving 1,5-2h, sausages grilling, flat bread, pastry and hot drinks, guiding in English.
Safari Clothing Recommendation:
The best way to dress up for eSled safari is to dress in layers. If there is not enough clothing, your hands and feet will cool down first and gradually the whole body.
Aurora eMotion always provides a helmet and a proper, warm winter clothing: (jacket, trousers, boots, woolen socks, mittens, balaclava and scarf) for the eSled – Safari.
eSled – Electric Snowmobile Safari:
A truly unique experience The eSled – electric snowmobile is an innovative new way to experience the Arctic splendor without disturbing the silent peace of wintry nature. We are the first company in the world offering electric snowmobile safaris, a sustainable way of experiencing and exploring the purity and silence of the Lappish nature.
Driving a snowmobile Each person driving a snowmobile must be at least 18 years old and hold a valid driving license (B). Please remember to take your driving license with you. Finnish law prohibits driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or any other intoxicating drug.
Two persons per snowmobile. For groups of 3 persons or other odd number of people, we highly recommend purchasing one single driver supplement.
Snowmobile driver is held liable for any damages caused to the vehicle. Personal self-liability is max. 990 €/person/snowmobile/case of accident. Payment is to be paid at the spot in Aurora eMotion’s safari house by cash or credit card.
Children Child prices apply to children aged 4-14 years. In snowmobile programs children less than 140 cm travel in a sleigh pulled by a guide. Children over 140 cm are allowed to sit on the snowmobile as passengers when paying the adult price.
As the responsible safari organizer, Aurora eMotion reserves the right to change the routing, schedules, duration or the content of the program if necessary, due to prevailing weather conditions, safety reasons and the comfort of the participants. Aurora eMotion also reserves the right to interrupt the safari if a participant is seen as a potential danger to him/herself or to others or is in poor health. If the weather is -20C or below, Aurora eMotion reserves the right to transfer the children to venues by car in our eSled safaris.
Pregnant women Aurora eMotion doesn't recommend use of the snowmobile or sledge pulled by the snowmobile for pregnant women. Driving generates vibration depending on trail condition which can be harmful. If the program requires special organisation (e.g. additional transport), client is responsible for the possible extra costs.
Liability insurance Aurora eMotion has a valid liability insurance required by Finnish law. Aurora eMotion recommends that you also take personal travel insurance.
Motor liability insurance We have motor insurance in all our programs with motor vehicles. Compensation for damages or injury resulting from a road accident shall be covered by the valid Motor Liability Insurance of the vehicle that caused the accident.
Other Injuries Aurora eMotion highly recommends personal travel insurance. Aurora eMotion is not liable for any accidental damage or injury which has to be indemnified under the travel insurance of a customer. eSled – safaris can be physically demanding. If the client has illnesses or disabilities (heart disease, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, back or hip problems etc.) that could affect client’s ability to take part in the program, or if she is pregnant, she/he should consult medical experts about her/his ability to participate in the Service in question before participating any Services. In case the client has illnesses or disability of this nature, he/she acknowledges that he/she participates in the Service at his/her own risk.
