Snowshoe trekking

Snowshoe trekking

Hiking with snowshoes you can explore the wide variety of terrain in the wintry nature of Lapland in an extremely ecological manner. Using snowshoes is easy, you don’t need to be a skilled skier to learn what snowshoe hiking is all about – reasonably good balance and warm clothing is all you need.

On marked trails or your own routes
The easiest way to get started is to take one of the existing snowshoe hiking trails, perhaps with the help of a guide. If you fancy taking off on a snowshoe hike with your own group, you should at least take a map and plan your snowshoe hiking route.

Snowshoes were originally intended to assist people in traversing the snowy landscapes and the ancient Indians already used snowshoes in their hunting trips. This form of travelling through wintry nature is now purely a recreational pastime. You can hire snowshoes from a number of Lappish ski resorts if you don’t have your own.
