Rovaniemi: Ski Trekking Safari in Lapland

7. Rovaniemi: Ski Trekking Safari in Lapland

There is no better way to explore untouched parts of Arctic nature than ski trekking. Your professional guide takes you away from Rovaniemi, straight into the Taiga forest where you get the chance to explore some of the breathtaking scenery of Lapland using back-country skis. Trekking skiing, also called back-country skiing or off-piste skiing, is a great way to explore remote areas of Lapland covered in deep snow. Unlike alpine skiing and cross-country skiing which are practised on groomed trails, back-country skiing allows for a more adventurous trip through hilly terrains, forests, and lakes. As the skis are equipped with skin, they allow you to go both uphill and downhill without excessive speed. Like snowshoeing, it does not require much practice to get used to the gears and to the techniques to slide on deep snow. This makes it very comfortable and easy to use, even for beginners. Your guide chooses a location that best fits the level and the needs of the group, before providing you with safety instructions and teaching you some techniques on how to use the skis on fresh snow. Refreshments and a typical Finnish barbecue snack will be provided halfway, as your guide lights a fire to keep you warm. This is a great moment for you to enjoy the splendid viewpoints and learn more about both Arctic nature and Lapland in general. After your 3-hour experience, your guide returns you to your tour starting point in Rovaniemi.

Before leaving, the tour group was prepared to take a break from the snow boots. Thanks to that, there was no freezing during the tour. I walked about 40 minutes to the south. At the station, the guide gave a basic explanation about オーロラ.またまたたなななかななたたたがれれたたしたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたたした!」 The opinion was in agreement, so we decided to continue further south. .The guide checked to see if there was an ourora.た。 then the オーロラが began to be seen, 皆も車からますてててててちきちす, and I was able to see the beautiful オーロラをますます!臨機応変しししますしますしますしてしなさなさなさててまてまてまてめずず走り回てんたたくさん 写真 写真 届き た。 で カメラ を を 持っ て き て 撮ろ う と し て て た も まし が 、 、 プロ プロ 持っ ガイド ガイド ガイド ガイド ガイド ガイド ガイド さん さん 絶対 絶対 楽 楽。 ツアー し おすすめ ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます ます おすすめ おすすめ おすすめ おすすめEven if the price is a little high, I think the quality of the tour is definitely worth it.

We had a fantastic day, very enjoyable and thanks to our two lovely guides, you could not fault them. So helpful in every way. One little fault was the husky ride was too short and that seems to be everyone's complaint so come on boys , ye need to make this a longer ride and then ye will get 100percent booking reviews.
