Snowshoeing in Riisitunturi National Park

From 105 €
Duration 5 hours

On this snowshoeing excursion we hike about 4,3 km long trail in Riisitunturi National Park. First we get equipped for the hike at the safari office and then drive to Tolva. The park has some of the finest sloping bogs anywhere in Europe. In winter the spruce trees that cover many of Riisitunturi's hillsides are clad with a thick coating of condensed frost, creating a photogenic white forest. The route takes you through the snow covered forests to the top of Riisitunturi Fell, where you will have magnificent 360 degree views to Lapland’s wilderness with


lakes and fells. After reaching the top we hike to a wilderness hut and enjoy sandwiches and hot juice with cookies. After the break we walk the rest of the trail back to the car. The hike requires good basic condition.
