This tour is perfect for those wanting to try out snowshoeing in a more authentic setting. Snowshoes have been used in Lapland for centuries as a form of transport. Trying them out for yourself in a peaceful forest away from the city is the most authentic way to get a feel for snowshoes.
You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Central Rovaniemi and driven in a comfortable minivan to a picturesque forest about 30 minutes away. After you arrive, your guide will set you up with warm outerwear and your snowshoes. You’ll get some instructions about how to put them on and how to use them - don’t worry, you don’t need any special skills (except balance) to use the snowshoes.
The snowshoeing location is away from all of the nearest roads so you’ll get to truly experience the wintry wilderness. Forget about your phone, your work and any other stressors and concentrate on the dazzling Lappish forest you’re hiking through.
During the trip there will be a break to make an open fire where we enjoy hot drink and sweet buns in the lovely wintry atmosphere.
Kindly note, this program is suitable for children minimum 12 years old.
