Two-day snowmobile adventure with overnight stay
This adventure is for those who want to see new places, enjoy good food and of course drive lots of scooters. The journey goes north with a view to skäckerfjällen. We pass lakes and mountains and travel about 50 miles on trails with very little traffic. Lunch we eat in the wilderness in a suitable place. The final destination is Kolåsens Fjällhotell where Annika and Micke receive us with a warm hand. Here the food is prepared from scratch using its own local and organic ingredients. They have their own pigs, sheep and chickens and in the mountain garden they have grown everything from root vegetables to their own tomatoes. The feeling of putting ham from the farm pig on the breakfast sandwich is difficult to describe in words. Before dinner there is the possibility of a sauna and we sleep well at the historic hotel which has miles of views of Skäckerfjällen Nature Reserve. After breakfast we start scooters and set direction towards Åreskutan, in clear weather we see it on the horizon. The return runs on other trails and we get to discover new beautiful places. Stops for lunch will probably be near the mythical Suljätten before we drive the last few miles back towards Åre.
Two-day snowmobile with overnight stay, minimum 4p from price 5800 pp (part in double room).
Including 2 lunches, dinner and breakfast, as well as part of the double room.
FAQs about snowmobile guiding in Årefjällen
Where do we drive scooters?
Common to all snowmobile tours is that we start in Åre Björnen at our snowmobile base. The guide for the day will then determine the best route according to the conditions of the day. Our goal is always to give you as guests the best possible tour. The most common is that we stay around the back of Åre skutan and if the conditions are good try to get up over the tree line.
Usually we start away towards Fröågruva because if conditions allow us to go up the mountain, otherwise turn down towards the beautiful mountain lakes Hissjön and Järptjärn.
For special requests, please book the VIP tour (private group). Then you can choose the route according to your wishes and conditions.
What kind of clothes do you have?
You can really have anything (almost). The basic rule is to think the same as when skiing, but with us you get an overall. We lend snowmobile overalls, helmets and boots to groups of up to 20 people. We groups over 20 people add 150 kr per person for renting equipment. For longer trips, it can be good to have underwear and something warmer between layers. A pair of comfortable wool socks is also never wrong.
