1000 Star Snowshoe Excursion

3.5 h
from 89 €
The gem of arctic nightlife: explore the wilderness on a snowshoe adventure after dark.
Have you ever experienced a night sky full of stars, or arctic wintry silence around you? Stargazing and walking through the snow-covered, moonlit landscape, northern lights moving across the dark sky? This tour will leave you with a lasting connection with the arctic nature when we take you on a journey to our favorite places to explore the night sky. Let's see what nature has for us tonight!
In order to find the best spot for your walk, we check the weather forecasts, taste some snow and then decide where our adventure is going to happen. When we reach the starting point you'll shortly be introduced to snowshoeing. No previous experience is needed. Proper winter clothing and an adventurous mind is all you need.

After transfer by car or a gondola lift we'll walk through forests and cross small frozen lakes and head in to the wilderness lit by our headlamps. Depending on our destination we may walk along the Big Bear's Trail or explore nature reserve areas. On the top of a fell we see the entire northern horizon. While admiring the snowy landscape and winter night around us, we enjoy hot crowberry juice. Your guide tells you stories about the nature around us and our cool arctic lifestyle. You also learn facts and fairytales about northern night sky and northern lights.

We really love our nature and keep our footprint as light and green as possible. If we make a campfire, we also plant a tree somewhere in the world.

Remember to take your camera with full battery! And dress properly. Check also our Full Moon Tours to Riisitunturi. Our group size is 1-8.
