This full day snowshoe hike is devised for those who want to experience Lapland at its best, and who are not afraid of walking 4-5 hours (not counting the breaks), sometimes in demanding conditions ! We'll walk the mountains, cross the frozen swamps, roam through the arctic forests !
I pick you in the morning from the location of your choice in Luosto, and we drive to the starting point of our hike. The whole trip happens in the beautiful landscapes of the Pyhä-Luosto national park and its fell area. For lunch, we will have a break at a forest camp, and enjoy a warm soup, some grilled sausages by the fire (washed down with a glass of delicious crowberry wine), and black pot coffee with traditional pastry, before continuing our hike.
