From Sunrise to Sunset with Snowshoes
In February the day is already so long that you can join our regular snowshoeing tour to Riisitunturi. After 22.12. the polar night is getting shorter and days get longer. On the summit we'll see the sunrise at 10:42 and sunset at 13:20. Daylight lasts only 2,5 hours. Quite a unique experience, isn't it?
We'll wander around with snowshoes, follow trails and also find our trails through deep snow, get to know the nature and stories of Riisitunturi and enjoy a trail meal and hot berry juice by the campfire. For every campfire we make, we also plant a tree somewhere in the world. It is already dusk when we start heading back and the stars start to light up.
Duration is 5-6 hours including transfers from Ruka and length with snowshoes is 4-6 km depending on group's wishes. The route is moderately easy and suitable for everyone who is able to walk the same distance. The activity will be normally arranged when a minimum of 2 adults are attending.
