Snowshoes Give You Float!

Press Release   •   Feb 13, 2013 10:18 GMT

Accessing Finland’s magical wintry landscapes and silvery forests is not just for experienced trekkers. A pair of snowshoes is your ticket to discover pristine nature covered in deep snow.

Snowshoeing requires no experience; if you can walk, you can walk in snowshoes. Strap on a pair and you’re ready to make thick layers of glittering snow your walking path.

The most ideal time for snowshoeing in Finland is the spring, February to April, with long sun-filled days and plenty of the white stuff.

See the Aurorae Light Up Dark Forests

As fun as snowshoeing is during the day, doing it in the middle of the night is a real thrill. Dark forests are cinematically atmospheric and eerie – in a good way! Seeing the Northern Lights blazing in the sky makes it a once-in-lifetime experience.

Lapin Luontoelämys will make it happen for you in Levi, Lapland.

Enter the Wild Taiga

The boreal forests, i.e. the taiga, of Kainuu, Eastern Finland are ideal for snowshoe treks. Hike up ridges for great views, cross frozen lakes and rivers and marvel at frozen waterfalls on the way. Hot cocoa and coffee breaks at wilderness huts are a must.

Upitrek takes you into and out of the snowy forest safely in and around Hossa.

Great Snowshoeing Hikes Right Outside Helsinki

Finland is a land of forests and lakes, and clean nature is never far away. Head out from Helsinki railway station and you’ll find yourself in a national park in 30 minutes.

Feel the Nature do snowshoe hikes in Nuuksio National Park in Espoo.
