Snowshoeing

You might be standing on two metres of snow. The only signs of life on the undisturbed snow are animal tracks. When the snow surface freezes, snowshoes will take you absolutely anywhere.

Snowshoes represent complete freedom to roam in the snowy landscape

Equipped with a map and compass, you can conquer the lowlandsand fells just as easily as the serene forests. Gliding snowshoes make the descents even more fun!

You can snowshoe in nature throughout the winter, usually from late October until late May. The prime season is in March and April. . You can use summer hiking trails and other paths on your journeys. Many will take you to a wilderness hut, where you can sit down by the stove, dry off your clothes and have a hot beverage. Do bring the map and compass though, as trail markers might be buried under the snow.

Many companies in Enontekiö rent out traditional and gliding snowshoes. Consider hiring a local guide as well. That way, you can also learn more about Lapland and pick up some wilderness skills!
