Full description
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.

Megaschöne Tour in wunderschöner Landschaft mit hohem Spaßfaktor

February 28, 2022

We were taken to a frozen lake where we skied, we hoped to go into the woods, as described, not being able to choose the level of experience, we adapt to the lowest present. Nice barbecue inside the Lapp tent at the end of the tour
