Our story began almost ten years ago when travellers visiting here in Lapland started asking for quiet and emissions-free vehicle for their journeys in Arctic wilderness. As the roar of the engines overwhelmed our senses, we also said to ourselves there must be a more sustainable way to enjoy snowmobiling. There was not, not on a snowmobile at least, but then we got an incredible idea: “What if we could combine the tranquillity of snowshoeing with the efficiency and ease of snowmobiling?”
An idea that people would be able to enjoy and embrace nature’s true silence and purity with a silent and eco-friendly snowmobile started to grow in our minds. Development of the electric snowmobile already got started at the Lapland University of Applied Sciences in 2010. The ambitious goal was to develop electric snowmobile that really works in Arctic circumstances here on the Arctic Circle, Finnish Lapland. As the result of process, the world’s first eSled – electric snowmobile was born. Hence, we, engineers, who created the eSled, also decided to establish a company on basis of our work in 2017. Today our company, Aurora Powertrains as the manufacturer of eSled – electric snowmobiles, from Rovaniemi, Finland is a forerunner in its special market segment.
Not only we designed the eSled, we also decided to set out our own safari company, Aurora eMotion, to provide silent and emission free electric snowmobile safaris for everyone visiting Lapland. Now we are proud to be the world’s first and only provider of eSled – electric snowmobile safaris, offering travellers a new sustainable and exciting winter activity. Electric snowmobiles are a huge step for people looking for sustainable and conscious holiday activities in Rovaniemi. There are 20 eSleds ready for your use in Rovaniemi. Nowadays, the electric snowmobile safaris are provided by Safartica Ltd and there are 20 eSleds available for your use in Rovaniemi, Levi and Ylläs.
