Full description
Experience the winter wonderland of Lapland and fill your lungs with fresh air on an evening snowshoe hike with round-trip transfers from Rovaniemi. Make your way to a traditional lumberjack lodge, nestled by the beautiful Raudanjoki River.

Walk across the bridge with your guide and marvel at the frozen rapids of the river. Gaze up into the night sky to look for the amazing phenomenon of the Northern Lights.

Gear up with all necessary equipment, and then head for the forest trails. You don’t have to be a confident skier to hike wearing snowshoes. Reasonably good balance and warm clothing is all you need. Take a break by an open fire during your hike to warm up with sweet buns and hot chocolate.

  • English-speaking guide (other languages available on request)
  • All described activities, services, and equipment
  • Use of thermal clothing during the safari (thermal overall, boots, gloves, woolen socks, and a scarf)

Brilliant quide

We were a family of five from young children to grandparents. We all had a fantastic time going through the woods in the evening was magical. Half way through stopped for a bite to eat and a hot chocolate sitting by a camp fire. Every one of us had a great time and our guide was awesome. He even took us tongue door as he was concerned for the little ones on our group. Thank you

Nice experience, but a short walk.

The van arrived quite late to pick us up, friendly welcome, good outfit. Drive again and then put on the snowshoes. Walking and eating and drinking at a campfire; no sausages but cinnamon rolls (also tasty). Then a short walk and already back to and with the hat. It was nice, but only a short walk. We found that a minus point.
