Great trip with guides Ivan and Alan. We were first snowmobile trip of the winter and there was around 18inches of powder snow which was fresh from night before. Fantastic fun and would recommend to all ages (driving licence required).

What a day. Very fun to ride on the fast boat. The guide from Lofoten found very good places to fish and the cod tasted very nice for dinner. We had a wonderful day.
