Iivaara Snowshoe Adventure

8 h
from 170 €
An arctic experience far away from everything.
Iivaara fell is a distant, quiet and magical place far away from everything. The name Iivaara means dark (Ii) & fell (vaara). It is the highest fell in southern Kuusamo and from the summit you can see all the way to the horizon.

Sit under silent snowy spruce trees and taste some snow, see the fells of Russia in the east and listen to the arctic silence. I'll tell you about the nature around us and our life here in north. And of course we will have a break by the fire with a trail meal and hot berry juice. For every campfire we make, we also plant a tree somewhere in the world.  

Duration is 7-8 hours including transfers from Ruka and length is about 8 km. The route is partly challenging with steep and rather long uphill. The adventure begins with a short introduction to snowshoeing, so no previous experience is needed. Normal physical condition and an adventurous mind is what you'll need.

Remember to take your camera with a full battery and dress properly. Our group size is 1-8 persons. We have also options for private/customized departures and solo travelers.
