Participants are provided all the necessary equipment to use for the duration of the safari, so thee is no need to acquire these from somewhere else. The safari routes have been carefully planned so as not to cause damage to nature.

Snowmobile Highway Code
The snowmobile routes are marked in the terrain with a cross symbol, reflectors and sometimes with temporary ribbons. The waterways, road crossings and other points requiring special care and attention found along the route are marked with official traffic signs.

Snowmobile riders use the routes at their own risk, and public traffic regulations need to be adhered to. If you want to stray from the officially marked snowmobile routes, you will need permission from the landowner, as snowmobiling does not belong to Everyman’s Rights. You can be certain you won’t get bored with the snowmobile routes, as the routes cover thousands of kilometres.
