Snow-mobiling

Västerbotten is famous for its excellent snow conditions making it a perfect location to go snowmobiling. We have 350 km of groomed trail network that runs both through the deep Lappish tundra and higher up above the tree line offering a variety of routes to all tastes and for all levels of experience. The newest 2018 edition Ski-doo Grand Touring 600 ace vehicles are available for rent as well as sleds and full sets of gear in various sizes. This part of Lapland is covered with snow 8 months a year and snowbolining allows you to reach the hidden corners of this beautiful mountanous area that are unaccessible by any other way. Reindeer, ptarmigans, polar foxes, remote mountaneous lakes and snow-covered peaks high enough to see all the way to Norway – gun the engine and emrace it all!

Ice-Fishing

The generousity of the lake waters in Storuman commune is famous far outside Sweden and can become a great family adventure as well as an excellent experience for keen fishermen. Lake Umnasjö is perfect for char, brown trout and lake whitefish fishing, smaller lakes Stenträsket, Holmträsket and Kroksjön are rich in pike and perch.

 

Can be combined with snow-mobiling to top off a unique experience. Rent a snow-machine and an ice-fishing kit, enjoy the sun and snow while waiting for your catch of a lifetime.  

 

The catch can be prepared for you (filleting, vacuum packaging) to take home with you or to learn to cook it the Nordic way here with us.

This part of Lapland is a one of the best Aurora-watching locations in the world. Get an accurate Aurora forecast from our stuff as well as tips on the best viewpoints, grab a thermos with a hot drink and go sky-gazing! Meditative yet awakening experience, an intimate moment to reconnect with nature and your own core.

Go higher up to escape from the light of the villages, watch the incredible phenomenon of the nordic nature dancing right above your head as seen by silent mountainous peaks and polar animals.
