What to expect

Experience the fascinating winter nature of Lapland in this private tour which will have you snowshoeing on top of waist deep snow, enabling you to discover locations that are otherwise near impossible to reach.

Vidsel is surrounded by a large number of mountains, forests, frozen rivers and lakes which you will be exploring together with your guide. There will be many animal tracks to discover in the snow and, if you are lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of some of the incredible wildlife.

After hiking for a short while you will have a rest at a scenic location and you will enjoy a Swedish "fika" experience over a warming fire, before heading back to the starting point.

With the crunching of the snow being the only sound you can hear, there is no better way to fully immerse yourself in nature than to head out in the wild with snowshoes on.
