Snowshoe walking

Our snowshoe walks are a simple way to explore the magical winter forests of Swedish Lapland. This tour takes you to the very middle of this wonderland landscape. Listen to the wind in the trees and the creaking from the snowshoes as we walk. With our small groups you will have a intimate experience as we sit together by the fire and taste local products and drink hot beverages from wooden cups.

On this activity it is very likely we will come across tracks from some of the wild animals that live in the forest. Our guide will tell you about nature, local traditions, and the different plants that thrive beneath the snow.  

Snowshoe walking is easy to get started with and is suited for all ages. You dont need any previous experience. We have a wide selection of trails to choose from to suit any skill level. We provide all the equipment you need. Your guide will take photos and share with you after the tour so you can just enjoy this truly unique experience.

Our snowshoes are made by professionals on the border to Canada. They are easy to put on, leightweight and you will be suprised how easily they carry you even in very deep snow. You can also rent our snowshoes if you want to explore on your own.
