Wilderness lesson

2 hrs. outdoor program by foot
Departure Monday - Saturday at 14:00

Survival in the wilderness has always been an important part of the Lappish way of life. Now you have a chance to get a glimpse of some of the skills needed to survive the harsh but beautiful Lappish nature.

During this tour into the snow covered forest we will take a look at nature with the eyes of an arctic survivor: how do we keep ourselves warm, how do we makea  shelter and how to we predict the weather and winds. Remember also to enjoy the small miracles of nature, like hanging moss on the trees, snowdrifts creating fairy tale figures and maybe even some birds or trails of arctic animals.
As we enjoy hot beverages by the fire, you can take the opportunity to try some snowshoeing and to ask your guide about the nature and the winter in Lapland.
