Commercial driving with snowmobiles is not allowed in most of southern Norway. This in order to protect the vulnerable nature and not to disturb the migration routes of the wild reindeer. Rondane National Park was exactly created in 1962 in order to protect these endangered animals. We see it as a big advantage not hearing any snowmobiles at all around our lodge, preserving the peace and quiet that most of our guests are looking for.
However, nothing compares the feeling of cruising the vast open landscapes on your own snowmobile. Therefore we can offer this unique experience when willing to drive some distance to Drevsjø, not far from the Swedish border. Here they recently opened up for snowmobiling on a vast network of trails south of lake Femunden. After attending a safety demonstration, you are even welcome to explore the signposted trails on your own. But of course the safari can be guided as well.
