Daily Departures Winter

We are proud to introduce our guests to the arctic lifestyle, regardless of how short or long your stay is. Our aim is to give our guests “a piece of local ambiance” to carry in their memories. Our daily departures of Lapland lifestyle safaris and excursions give you a taste of the north, wether you are traveling with your family, friends or as a couple.

Walk on snow 

3 hrs. snowshoe hike 
Daily departure at 13:00 

The white, pure snow invites to play and explore the nature. 

We pack our snowshoes and head to the wilderness by car. In Lapland we have approximately one meter of snow in the mid-winter time. Then it is hard to get around on foot in the forests. However, with snowshoes you can hike in deep snow, without sinking too much. Let’s enjoy the small miracles of nature, like hanging moss on the trees, snowdrifts creating fairy tale figures and maybe even some birds. At a lean-to shelter we make a fire and enjoy a small strengthening snack. Take this opportunity to ask your guide about the nature and the winter in Lapland.

What we say about this tour: 

“Sometimes you need to get away from the hustle and bustle and then nature, the forest is my remedy. Breathing fresh air, listening to the silence and letting your gaze wander over the hills – and you will feel refreshed and ready to tackle the world again! 

We recommend this for friends and couples, who enjoy a bit of exercise and the great outdoors.”
