Combining the intro lessons and driving to the backcountry

Never tried snowmobiling before but always wanted to? This tour combines an introductory lesson with the opportunity to drive into the mountainous area situated just east of Sisimiut.

We start with a one-hour introduction to the basic skills needed for driving a snowmobile. Our tour guide will also teach you safety rules, and train you to drive on a training track. Once you have gone through necessary training, and the guides are sure you are skilled enough to drive, we will move to the second and more exciting step – journeying into the backcountry!

The route we take is the most popular snowmobiling tour in Sisimiut and will take you through ascents, descents, and wonderful slopes. We move fast, leaving everything behind – city noises, work pressures, and daily chores. All you can feel is the thrilling freedom, the cold fresh air, and your heartbeat as you explore the Arctic landscape.

The real highlight of this tour is when we reach the dazzling view of David Strait and the landscape of Qerrortusup Majoriaa unveils an endless view over the winter-clad landscape. The power and magic of nature will be fully exposed to you at that very moment. You don’t need to hold a valid driving licence to join this excursion. However, you need to be at least 18 years old to participate and no passengers are allowed on this excursion for safety reasons. Tour Code: S3W Cover Picture Credit to Mads Pihl – Visit Greenland
