For many people, snowmobiling is associated with the mountains. A little less known is the fantastic snowmobiling in the forest area, where you will find varied nature, forest embedded in fluffy snow, nice little lakes with solid ice, mountains and valleys. The voluntary work of preparing snowmobile trails is a proud association culture, which means that the area offers first-class snowmobile trails. The area is, as mentioned, still quite unknown to many winter tourists, which means that you can drive miles and miles without seeing or meeting anyone else. In Storuman Lapland you can have a unique snowmobile experience.
In the eastern part of Storuman Municipality, the area of Storuman Lapland, there are approximately about 890 km of snowmobile trails that is mainly used by the local population. The trails are managed by non-profit organisations and by paying trail fees to their work, they can continue the work with the trails. There are often information signs at the beginning and along the trail with payment information; it is also possible to pay in advance.
Rent a snowmobile
If you want to rent a snowmobile to use in our area then Forsmark Adventure is the company that can help you. There are snowmobiles used for driving in loose powdersnow and those used for driving on the trail. If you want a guide with you when you rent a snowmobile the company also offers that service. Victor Stenman, who is the owner of the company has among other things a 2nd and 3rd place from the World Cup in Snowmobile Cross aswell as two SM-titles in Watercross. This is what he writes on his website: ”I love snowmobiling and thought I would try to show some of the places I consider among the best in Sweden!”
Guided tours and beginnerfriendly
If you want to try snowmobiling in an easy way, a guided tour can be a good option. Via Storumans Camping you can book a shorter or a longer tour with local guides who knows the area well. The tour starts with putting on the right equipment, warm overalls, shoes and helmets, which is included in the tour. After that, there is a review of safety and driving techniques and a short testdrive, and at last the adventure on the snowmobile trail begins. This is a comfortable and beginnerfriendly way to try snowmobiling for the first time.
Bring your own snowmobile or buy one locally
There is a local snowmobile dealer in Storuman Lapland, Yngvessons Maskin. Here you can buy the very latest or second-hand equipment. You can of course bring your own snowmobile and if it breaks down while you are here, there is a service and workshop nearby, at DN Motor and Yngvessons Maskin. The snowmobile trail always runs close to our communities and villages, check where the connecting trails are and plan the parking of your car and trailer accordingly.
