Snowshoeing Hikes & Treks

Departures in November, December, January, February, March, and April

Your Safety: Please consider some other realities about these beautiful adventures. You need to honestly evaluate your own physical condition before booking any Winter adventure with us. You will get to practice snowshoeing or skiing in deep snow on several miles in a day or on several days which will consume lots of your energy. Because of the extreme coldness (from -10° to -25° or sometimes more) the necessity to wear effective warm and comfortable cloths is very important. Also in Winter in Lapland (especially from November to the beginning of February) days are short. Hiking in the snow slows you down twice compared to a regular speed on a normal ground. Therefore you will need to stick to the schedule or then you will hike  in the darkness! Last thing to remember. It can be very windy on the top of the fells or on the lakes. Wind makes you tired more easily. Therefore save your energy with wisdom.

The Highlights of Your Trekking Adventure:

Day 1: Welcome to Finnish Lapland! We meet at the airport in Kittilä. Then we drive you to our cottage located on countryside in a peaceful village of Lapland. Installation. Presentation of the trek. We share a diner made with local products. We have sauna to end the day.

Day 2: We leave for a 45 mn car ride on a country road along the beautiful Ounasjoki River. Then we will hit the trail which goes first through a forest of spruces and Arctic birches. As we'll be going up we look in the distance a range of fells with rounded summits. Our mountain cabin for the night is located on a plateau with much space around to watch the Northern lights at night. Once arrived we make fire in the stove and enjoy a good diner.

Day 3: In the morning we go upper on the hills and enter like into a white desert. Our wilderness cabin for the next night is not too far which will give us some time to climb one of those high fells so we can have a great view over the range and the immensity of the Lappish lands. Back to the cabin we enjoy the remote and quiet place. Diner

Day 4: This is the longest stage of the trek. You will be amazed at the white world surrounding you. No trees or not many, a big sky meeting with the earth and giving you the feeling to be very little and lost in another world. Another wilderness cabin and a fireplace wait for us to end this day.

Day 5: We hike back on a plateau until we go down and explore a lake located in the forest. Maybe you will get the chance to feed one of those Siberian jays! Back at the cottage we get ready to go to an unlimited time session at the spa in Levi ski resort. 

Day 6: After breakfast transportation to Kittilä airport. Thank you and see you soon!
