Snowmobile information for foreign drivers

Show map

Nature in Hemavan Tärnaby is magnificent and varied. One way to experience it is to travel by snowmobile through birch forests, across frozen lakes and up to the bare mountain peaks.

In Hemavan Tärnaby the Storuman municipality takes care of the trails for snobiles and The County Administrative Board controls most of the trails further out on the mountains. In Hemavan and Tärnaby village it is forbidden to drive a snowmobile - except along the marked snowmobile trail. Check the local mountain map, at the Police or the Municipality trail map that it is premitted to drive to where you intended.

Rules for foreign drivers who want to drive a snowmobile in Sweden:
1. Drivers from EEA countries (EU + Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein): if they have the right to drive a snowmobile in their home country are also allowed to do it in Sweden. It is up to the driver to show that he/she is right.

2. A foreign with a swedish licence for snwmobile is permitted to drive in Sweden.

3. A foreign driver with a foreign driverslicense may participate in a guided group with more than ten people, headed by a person with a license for snowmobile along a distance determined by the leader before the trip.
