Half Day Tours.

 

The Half Day Tour is a bit longer and takes us further in to the mountain areas. The tour takes about 2 hours and we travel through one of the most beautiful areas in Sälenfjällen, and also is a big nature reserve. You are not allowed to drive snow mobiles here, and therefore the experience gets extra special because of the mountain’s silence.
