Snowmobile Tracks

Snowmobiling at Lake Inarijärvi

During the winter, snow mobiles are a common mode of transport on Lake Inarijärvi, because the distances are long, and the ice on the lake is strong enough from December to May, in an average year.

On the ice of Lake Inarijärvi, there are marked snow mobile tracks going to Nellim, Sevettijärvi and Ivalo.
