This entry-level snowshoeing tour includes a PyhäExpress chair lift ticket to the top of Pyhä Fell (weather permitting) for the best possibly views across the Pyhä-Luosto National Park and beyond! Our guide will show you how to use snowshoes in a safe environment while sharing stories of the Arctic nature, the surrounding landmarks, and the old Lappish beliefs.
Pyhä Fell offers many opportunities for photographing the changing landscape and and the surrounding nature. The frosty snow starts to cover the trees up in the fell right when the first sub-zero temperatures arrive and the warm and moist air starts to rise from the valley to the top of the fell. Photographers especially are mesmerized by these fairytale-like snow monsters and the different shapes and sizes the snow creates around the trees. Depending on time of year, you may also capture the Polar night sunrise/sunset colors or halos around the sun on a frosty winter day. Camera is a must-have accessory for the Scenic snowshoeing tour!
After visiting the top, we will walk down to the Pyhä-Luosto National Park. On the route back there are plenty to see, for example the reindeer paddock. Go and say hi to friendly reindeers (when they are available)! The tour can and will be tailored based on the clients’ request. Also suitable for a family (snowshoes for kids also available).
Note: Pick up from Luosto starts 30 minutes before departure.
