Important Information

ALL ACCOMODATION AND TRAVELLING HAVE TO BE BOOKED AND PAID DIRECTLY AT THE CORRESPONDING TRAVEL AGENCY

Clothes:

  • With daily temperatures up to -20 °C and lower it is obvious to wear appropriate clothing. The Hotel Nordkalotten has a number of overalls who can be lend to the participants. These overalls are primarily used for snow scooter driving and that´s why they are very warm and can stand the bitter cold. Even a number of boots who are lined with fur are available for the participants.

Driving in Norrbotten / Lappland:

  • Winter tyres are an absolut ”must”!
  • The engine and transmission oil has to stand temperatures up to –30°C !
  • The cooling system should be filled with cooling water that is mixed with 50% glycol and 50% water
  • The battery and the ignition system have to be in a perfect condition!
  • Carburettor spirit should be added to each refuelling in order to avoid that any water in the petrol can freeze.
  • The washer fluid should be mixed with an anitfreeze suitable up to –30°C .
  • You have to take a number of bulbs and fan belts with you.
  • A blanket for each passenger should be available in case you get in trouble.
  • If your car has an engine heater: don´t forget the cable! A socket is available in every Swedish hotel.

Driving on snow and ice:

  • oncoming trafficwhirls up snow that makes driving quite difficult for a short while. Please reduce speed in that moment and keep the distance !
  • Avoid jerky steering movements!
  • Particularly with temperatures near the freezing point the snowy road will be very slippery!
