    We had an absolute blast doing this. Was a bit apprehensive as we had no experience driving snowmobiles and are not used the the conditions, our group also had a couple of nervous drivers. Needn’t have worried, the company was really professional and the instructor top rate. Great fun on great machines, beautiful views with fab people. Would do it again, just for longer. Should also mention that one of our group had been a bit worried about their weight for both the machine and the overalls, but again they needn’t have worried so please do not let anything like that put you off if you have similar concerns.

Good value for money!
