The second part of the trail will go through one of Europe’s last wilderness areas, the Finn mark plateau. In the sun and the arctic light, you will drive through a forest and valley covered in snow.

The trails together are approximately 30-35 kilometers, so you will drive almost 2,5 hours by snowmobile. Normally you drive in pairs, but there is also an opportunity to drive the snowmobile yourself. Please let us know, if you wish to drive your own snowmobile.
