You will be picked up from your hotel and driven 70 km outside of Riga to Gauja National Park, where the snowmobiling activity takes place. At the beginning you will hear driving instructions. Then a few minutes driving on the field to get to know to driving techniques and you are ready to head into the woods. Your instructor drives first of a group and the other snowmobiles are following one by one, keeping 10 to 15 meters distance. There can be 2 of you on each snowmobile as there will be chance to swap at a few stops on track and thus both people will have a chance to be in charge of steering. During the ride you will have an opportunity to cross a few narrow bridges over the Ligatne River and even the ice-free river itself by driving through the water. We will provide you with helmet for your safety but please take very warm winter clothing with you as it can be very cold while driving. After the snowmobile drive you will have a hot bowl of soup to warm you up. We can provide 7 snowmobiles, so maximum 14 people can go on a track at a time.
Each of you will have 15 minutes of exhilarating driving on a two seater snowmobile, which equals 30 minutes of crazy riding, but if it is not enough for you driving time can be upgraded to 1 hour, so each person gets 30 min ride by the steering wheel. Winter in Latvia can be pretty tough, so do not forget to take very warm winter clothing with you. We will ensure you with helmet for your safety. After drive you will be taken back to your hotel.
Important: If there is not enough snow (at least 15 cm), there is no snowmobiling. In such cases, we will switch this activity to winter quad bike drive through the same track.
