About

“All of a sudden, the trees transformed into fur-covered men, who flew across the snow silently, like the wind. On their feet they wore some sort of long wooden shoes and they had long bear spears in their hands.”

Jump on your skis and push ahead – soon you will be gliding on the snow like ancient Laplanders.

Skiing is easy and can be done by anyone who can walk! During this beginners’ course, your guide will teach you the basic techniques, after which you can head on the forest trail to witness the wintery beauty of Lapland.

 Inclusions: Guiding in English, Thermal Clothing inc. Overalls, Boots & Mittens, Cross-country Skis and Ski Poles

CLOSEST WAY TO EXPLORE the Nature Of Lapland

About

Snowshoeing is the closest way to experience the nature of Lapland. The deep snow crunching under the shoes, the snow-hooded trees, and the pearly-white willow grouse watching you from afar – the winter nature is a magical world of its own.

We hike through the forest in snowshoes to a nearby fell where we will build a fire, prepare a hot drink and enjoy the spectacular scenery. The guide will provide information on the nature and animals of Lapland, and with any luck, we may see a Siberian jay, a willow grouse, or a herd of reindeer wandering by.

This trip is especially suitable for nature-lovers, who wish to take great photographs and ecologically enjoy the natural scenery.

Inclusions: Guiding in English, Thermal Clothing inc. Overalls, Boots & Mittens, Warm Berry Juice, Snowshoes

Why visit in the Spring?
In Finnish, we call the Lappish Spring ‘Kevättalvi’. There’s a beautiful balance between all the Winter perks, milder temperatures and more hours of daylight. Ideal for those looking to get the most out of the snow!
Why visit in the Summer?
Escape the heatwaves of regions closer to the equator, with temperatures rarely exceeding 20°C. Enjoy the quiet, peaceful and pristine nature of Lapland!
Why visit in the Autumn?
Temperatures are mild, there’s less crowd and nights are very dark which allows for amazing Northern Lights viewings. Plus: Enjoy Aurora Square! You’ll be able to see breathtaking Northern Lights reflections on unfrozen rivers and lakes.
Why visit in the Winter?
Sub-zero temperatures ensure there’s plenty of snow and outdoor fun for the whole family! The sun is only up for a few hours, making the Winter a great time to view Northern Lights. Cold nights tend to have a clear sky, with green, purple and red shades of the Aurora Borealis!
