Welcome to Winter wonderland!
Because the tour is private, you are given the opportunity to choose where you would like to live this adventure : you may opt for a challenging hike (8-15km) in the Rovaniemi area or drive to another region of Lapland to discover a different scenery, like fully-snow-covered “cotton” trees. In this case, the hike is usually around 4-8km with the goal to reach untouched remote lands, deep forests or the top of Lappish fells (our “local mountains”). The experience is designed to explore elusive nature area or reach some viewpoints over the immense subarctic forests.
Our team will be in contact with you to discuss and advise about the best option and place to go, according to your wishes and what you would like to experience in terms of scenery and duration.
Along the way, your outdoor guide will explain to you about your surroundings, the fauna and flora, footprints in the snow, etc. A break with an open fire will also allow you to grill a typical Finnish snack with hot beverages. This is a great opportunity for your guide to show you how to build a fire in arctic conditions and answer all your questions about Lapland.
When booking, you will be given the opportunity to choose between trekking skis or snowshoes. Snowshoes are easier to use on every terrain but cover shorter distances. Altai skis allow you to glide on deep snow, so you go a bit faster and farther, but it may be more technical for hilltops or downhill terrains. In all cases, both types of equipment are accessible to beginners, and the guide will offer trek options adapted to your level.
