Take a White Hike
Snowshoeing is a great way to experience Finland’s wintry wildernesses, enjoy the fresh and clean air and get some exercise. Join a guided hike or do a little adventure on your own!
Outdoor activities are the key to making the most out of the winter wonderland that is Finland. An ancient way of crossing wintry landscapes, snowshoeing is steadily gaining popularity as an adventure activity today.
Snowshoes give you float in deep snow and make the vast wilderness areas reachable even in wintertime. The extraordinary mystique of a quiet winter forest is best explored on snowshoes.
Spot the Aurorae Snowshoeing
How about admiring the Northern Lights in a snowy forest? Or the endless Arctic wilderness bathing in springtime sunlight? Perhaps a frozen waterfall in the fells? Options are numerous, and there are plenty of companies organising snowshoeing hikes all around Finland.
Guided hikes are recommended for beginners, and trails have been marked for those who wish to embark on a tour of their own but are not familiar with the territory.
Accessible to all
If you can walk in your shoes, you can walk in snowshoes. There is a nack or two to it, but anyone will get the hang of it in an instant. If the snow is really deep, poles come in handy. They’re also good exercise for the upper body.
Strap them on and face the wild!
Contrasts are a key factor in the allure of Lapland. The hustle and bustle of towns and ski resorts is just minutes away from the peace and quiet of the wilderness.
