Half a day snowshoeing trip...

This trip is particularly suitable for a family with children, or for people who want to enjoy the lappish wilderness without making it too "extreme".

I pick you from the location off your choice in Luosto, and we head for a 3 hours snowshoeing trip in the boreal forest around Luosto. Snowshoes are easy to use, and let us go off the beaten tracks. They are also relatively silent, and as we travel in very small group, the chance of seeing wildlife is real.

At some point during our trip, we'll have a break at a Laavu (lean-to-shelter), where you will discover the world famous finnish sausage ( a.k.a  the vegetable of the real finnish man) grilled by yourself on the open fire. We'll also enjoy hot drinks and some pastry, before heading home. Maybe some friendly hosts of this woods will pay us a visit to share our food...

DURATION : 3 hours

WALKING DISTANCE : around 4km  (around 2 hours effective walking)

PRICE : 120€+20€/person ( 80€/pers for 2 participants, 60€/pers for 3, 50€/pers for 4...)

INCLUDES : car transportation if needed, snowshoeing equipment, hot drinks, sausages and cookies.

 

Full day snowshoeing trek...

... Breathtaking sceneries guaranteed !

This full day snowshoe hike is devised for those who want to experience Lapland at its best, and who are not afraid of walking 4-5 hours (not counting the breaks), sometimes in demanding conditions ! We'll walk the mountains, cross the frozen swamps, roam through the arctic forests!

I pick you in the morning from the location of your choice in Luosto, and we drive to the starting point of our hike. The whole trip happens in the beautiful landscapes of the Pyhä-Luosto national park and its fell area. For lunch, we will have a break at a forest camp, and enjoy a warm soup, some grilled sausages by the fire (washed down with a glass of delicious crowberry wine), and black pot coffee with traditional pastry, before continuing our hike. We should end our trip sometimes in the afternoon. During this hike, we will cross all kinds of arctic landscapes, from the lappish fells to the boreal forests, and we will have good chance to see some arctic wildlife.

DURATION :  6+ hours  the snow conditions can affect the duration of the trip... (around 4,5 h of effective walking)

WALKING DISTANCE : Around 10 km (it corresponds to around 15-25km by foot depending on the snow condition).

PRICE : 200€+35€/pers ( 135€/pers for 2, ~101€/pers for 3, 85€/pers for 4).

INCLUDES : car transportation, snowshoeing equipment, lunch and snacks, forest skis, and probably some sweat.
