Activities, Arctic Expeditions, Snowmobiling

The Russian landscape invites those, who wish to experience endless landscapes for snowmobiles, without the limitations of tracks.

This tour is created for those, who already have knowledge of snowmobiling and wish to “get technical”, distancing themselves from long distance track driving and rather learning freeride. The group will set up camp in the Russian mountains and explore the possibilities there, where official tracks are non-existent. It is all about learning free riding and starting to “feel the snowmobile” rather than just driving the machine. Please note that participants in this tour must take care of their own Visa for Russia.

Arctic Expeditions – Snowmobile gear information

“Only the best is enough, when it comes to snowmobiling”
(Sami Päivike, CEO of Wild Nordic Finland, endurance racer, deep snow coach, champion of Ladoga Trophy and Arctic Trophy)

Our company is proud of being part of developing and testing adventure snowmobiles for BRP Finland, the only snowmobile factory in Europe, located at the Arctic Circle, Rovaniemi – our hometown. Our representatives have also a long and successful racing history with BRP.

Challenges are ingredients for achievements. Conditions spice up the experience. Wild Nordic Finland is using only the market leader brand, BRP Lynx Xterrain snowmobiles on its expeditions. These top level snowmobiles are a unique combination of performance, resilience and uncompromising adventure features. For Xterrain, there is no such thing as impossible. Long track (3700 mm) with a leading technology, high profile, fuel-efficient and powerful Rotax 600R ETec engine, deliver grip and performance whenever needed. This snowmobile is designed for endurance and equipped for adventure.

Thanks to high-performance suspension and sporty ergonomics you can effortlessly set the pace. PPS² rear suspension provides balanced performance in variable deep snow conditions. It also has excellent features for trail riding. The Xterrain riding experience is built around the optimized weight distribution and refined riding ergonomics of the Radien-X frame. Every detail is finessed with handling, wind protection and comfort in mind. Even helmet visors are electrically heated!

The Blade DS+ ski provides the Lynx Xterrain adventure snowmobile with precise steering in variable snow conditions. The long ski makes the steering precise and stable on trail and improves maneuverability in deep snow. The Explorer rear bumper protects the rear frame of the Xterrain RE snowmobile and has a number of attachment points which make it easier to attach items onto the tunnel. Explorer front bumper protects the front. Tunnel cooling together with an air radiator with fan keep the engine at optimum temperatures when riding slowly and in varying snow conditions.

Best tools for the best adventures.
