It's important to know

Personal equipment you need for the tour

1. Backpack or travel bag. On long snowmobile routes (from 3 days), it is highly undesirable to bring things in a suitcase, because it does not fit into the trunk of a snowmobile and is inconvenient to transport.

2. Clothing for an active snowmobile day:

  • Thermal underwear (pants and jacket).
  • Comfortable warm sportswear. The best option is a suit for snowboarding or downhill skiing. We recommend not to come in jeans, because they restrict movement and do not warm.
  • A fleece jacket or sweater.
  • Socks should be on your feet (thin cotton + warm wool socks are required).
  • Gloves and a hat. During the snowmobile route, the travel agency provides: insulated boots, snowmobile overalls, gloves, balaclava, helmet. The jumpsuit is put on top of your clothes. If there are no severe frosts, then the jumpsuit can be worn on thermal underwear + sweatpants and a fleece jacket / sweater.

4. The form of clothing for an active day on skis: Everything is the same as in a snowmobile day, however, we recommend having a small backpack in which you can put a warm vest or an additional jacket. While skiing, you should be dressed according to the weather (usually a suit for downhill skiing or snowboarding), however, during stops you may feel cool. At these moments, an additional vest or jacket will be useful. We recommend wearing ski boots on wool socks.

  • A set of spare underwear.
  • Slippers or warm socks.

6. For a trip to the sauna:

  • A swimsuit (if you need one).
  • Slates/sandals for sports.

7. Shoes — comfortable warm shoes without heels.

8. Personal items:

  • Personal hygiene products.
  • Individual first aid kit.
  • If you wear glasses, then you should remember that under the helmet the shackles can press and cause discomfort. Also, your breathing under the helmet makes the glasses fog up, and they freeze quickly in the cold. Also, the glasses fog up when you enter a warm room from the cold. If possible, lenses should be provided.

9. Documents:

  • Passport.
  • Medical insurance policy (photocopy is available).

10. Money. We recommend that you always have a small amount of cash with you so that, if desired, you can quickly buy the necessary things at stops along the route.
