Driving a snowmobile Each person driving a snowmobile must be at least 18 years old and hold a valid driving license (B). Please remember to take your driving license with you. Finnish law prohibits driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or any other intoxicating drug.
Two persons per snowmobile. For groups of 3 persons or other odd number of people, we highly recommend purchasing one single driver supplement.
Snowmobile driver is held liable for any damages caused to the vehicle. Personal self-liability is max. 990 €/person/snowmobile/case of accident. Payment is to be paid at the spot in Aurora eMotion’s safari house by cash or credit card.
Children Child prices apply to children aged 4-14 years. In snowmobile programs children less than 140 cm travel in a sleigh pulled by a guide. Children over 140 cm are allowed to sit on the snowmobile as passengers when paying the adult price.
As the responsible safari organizer, Aurora eMotion reserves the right to change the routing, schedules, duration or the content of the program if necessary, due to prevailing weather conditions, safety reasons and the comfort of the participants. Aurora eMotion also reserves the right to interrupt the safari if a participant is seen as a potential danger to him/herself or to others or is in poor health. If the weather is -20C or below, Aurora eMotion reserves the right to transfer the children to venues by car in our eSled safaris.
Pregnant women Aurora eMotion doesn't recommend use of the snowmobile or sledge pulled by the snowmobile for pregnant women. Driving generates vibration depending on trail condition which can be harmful. If the program requires special organisation (e.g. additional transport), client is responsible for the possible extra costs.
Liability insurance Aurora eMotion has a valid liability insurance required by Finnish law. Aurora eMotion recommends that you also take personal travel insurance.
Motor liability insurance We have motor insurance in all our programs with motor vehicles. Compensation for damages or injury resulting from a road accident shall be covered by the valid Motor Liability Insurance of the vehicle that caused the accident.
Other Injuries Aurora eMotion highly recommends personal travel insurance. Aurora eMotion is not liable for any accidental damage or injury which has to be indemnified under the travel insurance of a customer. eSled – safaris can be physically demanding. If the client has illnesses or disabilities (heart disease, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, back or hip problems etc.) that could affect client’s ability to take part in the program, or if she is pregnant, she/he should consult medical experts about her/his ability to participate in the Service in question before participating any Services. In case the client has illnesses or disability of this nature, he/she acknowledges that he/she participates in the Service at his/her own risk.

If you wish, you can wear your own clothing and boots during our snowmobile tours but we strongly recommend using our special equipment.
- Thermal overall
- Balaclava mask (on snowmobile tours)
- Woolen socks
- Winter boots
- Scarf (if needed)
- Helmet (on snowmobile tours)
If the day tour you’re joining includes the use of thermal clothing, you’re welcome to arrive dressed in your normal clothes. However, especially on tours lasting more than two hours we would recommend considering the following clothing of your own:
- Long thermal underwear
- Sport or ski socks worn under woolen socks
- Trousers: loose-fitting, fleece, softshell or similar
- Sweater: wool, fleece or similar warm material
- Neck warmer instead of scarf if you want
- Warm hat
- Your own jacket to be worn under the overall if the temperatures are close to -15 °C or lower
If the outdoor tour you are joining does not include the use of winter clothing, please make sure to bring your own winter boots, weatherproof jacket, trousers and gloves, in addition to the equipment listed above.
Snowmobile trails have official speed limits, controlled by local police officers. Speed limits are shown with traffic signs but if there is an area without the traffic signs, the following limits will remain; maximum 60 km/h on the trail, maximum 80 km/h on ice covered water areas and maximum 40 km/h with a snowmobile pulling a sledge.
On guided snowmobile tours the speed is related to the maximum speed limit of the area BUT our first priority is the safety and the skill level of the group. The guide will monitor how the people in the group are riding and the speed is always related to that. Another important thing is the condition of the trail and weather conditions in general. The target on guided tours is to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all the participants, also for the ones with no experience at all.
It is definitely possible. Most of our tours are suitable for children of all ages (please see specifications under each tour).
During the tour, children (and parents if they wish) are sitting in a sledge on reindeer hides and are covered by blankets so they stay warm and comfortable.
The sledge is pulled by the guide’s snowmobile – it takes some experience to do it safely and that is the reason why only the guide is allowed to pull the sledge.
If the child is at least 140 cm tall, he/she can also sit on the snowmobile behind the adult. In this case he/she has to pay the price of an adult.
Before and during activities on the multi-day and/or snowmobile tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.
After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.
Please note that Finnish law prohibits driving a snowmobile under the influence of alcohol or any narcotic product. As responsible tour operators, we reserve the right to change the route and duration of the tour if deemed advisable for the sake of safety and comfort of the participants. We also reserve the right to discontinue the tour if a participant is seen as a potential danger to him/herself or to others, or is in poor health.
