This ski adventure will offer a memorable experience on Altai skis! Your guide will take you in small groups away from Rovaniemi to explore Lapland wilderness forests, hills and landscapes. You may even spot or hear some animals such as reindeer or arctic hares…
Ski touring is an easy ski discipline designed to let you glide on deep snow off the beaten tracks or groomed trails. The backcountry skis (called in Finnish, “sliding snowshoes”) are equipped with a skin allowing to both hike uphill and slide downhill ; they are equally used for long Arctic expeditions or shorter day tours into wild nature. They are the perfect equipment to get to beautiful elusive places that you cannot reach with cars or on foot.
The tour will be adapted to the level of the group with different terrains and difficulty options.
