Learn how to snowshoe in a national park with a professional guide and enjoy a delicious Finnish-style lunch inside a traditional wilderness hut.
Snowshoeing is a one of a kind experience and easy for everyone to learn, and this magical walk through Liesjärvi national park will lead you to your own personal winter wonderland. Liesjärvi is one of Finland’s oldest national parks and is considered to be the hidden gem of Southern Finland.
Upon arriving to the national park, you will begin your journey through the forest, learning how to make your own trail and testing the limits of snowshoes. Your guide will provide details about the surroundings and instructions on different techniques used while snowshoeing.
You will snowshoe through a breathtaking landscape carved by time and shrouded by old growth forest which remains teeming with life even in the winter. Beneath a thick blanket of snow, the forest is alive and well, you will see the stories
of wildlife on the surface of the snow.
After an hour of snowshoeing, you will arrive at a beautiful wilderness hut. While your guide starts the fire and begins preparing a traditional Finnish-style lunch and campfire coffee, there will be plenty of time to take photos, explore the
beautiful surroundings, talk, make snow angels and enjoy the tranquility of Finland’s Taiga forest.
The snowshoeing continues after lunch as you explore the beauty of Liesjärvi under the towering snow-covered spruces. After snowshoeing for roughly one hour, you will make your way back to the starting point, feeling refreshed and fully charged from this unique experience in nature.
This excursion is perfect for those who would like to escape the city and spend their day experiencing winter in the wilderness. You don’t need to have any previous experience as your guide will teach you all you need to know about snowshoeing on the day, and the small group size allows for an intimate experience in nature.
