Put on your snowshoes and get ready for a relaxing walk into the wilderness! This tour will allow you to head deep into Arctic nature and discover a bit more of the secrets of Lapland. With your professional guide, you will snowshoe through old forests, along frozen rivers or lakes, or up to a hilltop, looking for wildlife and steps left in the snow. You may have the chance of passing tracks made by wolves, lynx, wolverines, moose, reindeer, weasels, Arctic hare…
The tour will be adapted to the level of the group so that it is suitable for everyone, from the very beginners to the good hikers.* As you will explore the white scenery, you will certainly feel the peaceful harmony of Lapland. Your guide will always keep an eye on wildlife and flora and teach you more about nature and your surroundings.
Refreshments and a typical Finnish barbecue snack will be provided halfway, as your guide will lit a fire to keep you warm. This is a great opportunity for your guide to show you how to build a fire as natives do. No need for matches or a lighter, your guide will use a flint&steel and natural materials you can find in the nature that surrounds you (this can be done in conditions as cold as -30°C!). This break around the open fire will be also the perfect convivial moment for your guide to answering all your questions about Lapland and life in the Arctic.
