Full-day snowshoeing adventure in Kilpisjärvi
There is no better way to experience the arctic nature than on our private snowshoeing adventure! On a full day tour you will be able to explore the wilderness a bit deeper. Our guide will take you snowshoeing to the great fells around the village or even further. You will not only get fresh air and exercise, you will learn about the nature in Finnish Lapland, take great photos and hear stories about life in the arctic. On this privately guided tour our guide puts attention into the details and chooses the most suitable area specially for you, so that you can have a memorable and fun day outdoors, including a delicious lunch by a campfire. We will always have home-baked bread and local delicacies to offer with tasty warm drinks.
Depending on your fitness level, special desires and the weather forecasts we have different options for snowshoeing around Kilpisjärvi region. This tour requires a bit better fitness level than our half-day tour since we are out a full day.
poles if needed
As with any outdoor activity, layering is the best solution. Merino wool is great because it keeps you warm even if it does get damp. Cotton, on the other side, cools you down very quickly when it gets wet, so we do not recommend cotton clothing (t-shirt, hoody, jeans) at all .
warm overcoat for the break
windproof jacket and trousers e.g goretex or skiing clothes
base layer top and bottom– e.g merino
a pair of thick woollen socks
thinner woollen socks e.g. merino
scarf / buff
warm hat – needs to cover your ears
mittens / gloves – windproof is good.
