I was a little nervous going into because I had never driven one before, but luckily, it really is quite easy to drive! Of course, still be cautious.  But don’t be deterred from booking a tour because you never have driven one before!

It was snowing during our tour so we didn’t see the views as clear as you normally would, but honestly, I’m not upset about it… the snow falling like that was magical.

Our guide took us along some single track routes, it was like being in Narnia! Huge, snow covered pine trees lined the entire path (seen in the video above — screenshot below).
