Roavve300 have two very different sections
First section of the track is the same as Rovaniemi150, so this section is very well signed and there is not need of GPS but the Satellite
Device tracker (mandatory) to do the check-in in mandatory waypoints. All mandatory waypoints in this first section match with the

Second section is quitte different, it follows an snowmobile track. There are signs, in some areas more than others. In some areas you will find very good snow conditions and in others maybe you find deep snow and also you will find other snowmobiles track crossing that all it do is confuse the right way... It all depends on how long ago snowed and when the last snowmobile went through there.
