The snowmobile ride gets you into the middle of the wilderness to see the breath-taking
fell landscapes. A professional safari guide will safely guide even a first timer into the secrets
of snowmobile driving. When you have accumulated experience, you can drive all the way
to Sweden and Norway from Levi.
SNOWMOBILE DRIVING IN LEVI
Levi’s surroundings are a snowmobile driver’s dream – lots of snow, great
landscapes and varied trails. There are almost 900km (560 mi) of snowmobile routes around Levi.
You can get the most out of the experience by taking other people into account
and paying attention to safe traffic on the trails. Stay on route, follow instructions,
take other people into account and enjoy the ever-changing landscapes on a snowmobile.
Using a helmet is mandatory both for the driver and people in a sleigh.
A snowmobile driver will need a driving licence.
The maximum speed is 80 km/h (49 mph) on the river basin,
60 km/h (36 mph) on terrain routes and 30 km/h (18 mph) in village centres,
conurbations and dangerous places. The speed limits are visible on the trails, on traffic signs.
Remember to adapt the speed and distance to your skills. Remember also to follow
the alcohol limits set out in Road Traffic legislation.
Before leaving to drive a snowmobile, we recommend getting a map
from Visit Levi tourist info. The map price is €10.00. The map includes all
the snowmobile routes, service and gas points and safari company locations.
By buying a map you will also support this hobby at Levi. Profits from the map
are used to maintain the trails as well as possible.
The electronic sled service enables you to see the Kittilä snowmobile routes and the
maintenance situation right on your mobile device. The service also points out the
cafés, huts, lean-tos and wilderness huts which you may want to use. You can measure
the lengths of different routes and save your map views with places to take a break.
