Features & Benefits
Winter wonderland The Finnish winter is magical, silent and beautiful. You will enjoy the snow, ice, peace and quiet in the forest. Your guide will tell you interesting stories about the nature. Experiencing nature improves your wellbeing and makes your heart sing
Fun Riding an electric Snow scooter is big fun. Scooter moves by a small gesture of your finger and you will love the quiet ride. We shall ride up and down the hills, sometimes driving on durable ice, sometimes in the woods.
Easy Driving Snow scooter is easy. If you can drive a bike, you will learn to drive Snow scooter in minutes. Riding a scooter requires the same balance as cycling. We start the trip by getting to know how to drive a scooter on flat ground. Only when you’re used to driving, we move on to driving in the forest along a path. We have made a trail for you so that you can explore and enjoy the adventure with ease. Guide gives you all necessary instructions, drives with you and gives a helping hand when needed.
Safe Riding an electric Snow scooter is as safe as riding a bike when you follow the guides instructions. The top speed of electric Snow scooter is 25 km/h and we will ride by safe low speeds. No drivers licence is required. A minimum age of 10 years is required from all participants
Effortless All you need to do on the electric Snow scooter is stand and move your finger to control the speed. The silent electric engine takes care of the rest. Follow the trail that we have made for you in the forest and that is it. No further efforts needed.
Nature friendly Electric eLyly Snow scooter is a silent and zero-pollution vehicle. It is nature-friendly and sustainable mode of transportation in snow.
Unique Our electric eLyly Snow scooters are the world’s first top-designed electric Snow scooters. Scooter is an electric and inspiring new product made in Finland. Scooters hull is built of Finnish wood and has a unique design.
We are a couple. Can we book a ride for just two persons Yes, you can. Our private tours minimum group size is just two persons
Is the safari good for a family with children? If your children have a minimum age of 10 years and they can ride a bike, then yes, this is good for you. Your personal guide will be extra careful for safety when there are young children in the group, and you will all be well instructed before we start the safari. If the above conditions are not met, then you should look for another easier activity for children.
Can I stay upright on the scooter if I have poor balance? If you can ride a bike normally, you can learn to ride eLyly as well. Driving requires the same balance as cycling. We always familiarize ourselves with driving the eLyly on flat ground, where driving is easier than in the forest. Then, when you get the hang of the plot and the driving is smooth, we can also move to the forest path to drive
What happens if the weather is very cold? The safaris will operate when the temperature is above -25 degrees Celcius. All participants need to have warm winter clothing (if necessary, we do rent warm winter overalls, boots and gloves, but only in adult-size). You can book the clothes in advance.
