FAQs: Snowshoeing in Finland

What should I know about Snowshoeing Finland?

Situated in the northeastern corner of Europe, on the Scandinavian Peninsula, Finland experiences long and cold winters; perfect for heading out on a snowshoeing adventure.

One of the most popular options among snowshoers is to head out on a hut-to-hut snowshoeing trip in one of the various national parks of the northern Finish Lapland. With an interconnecting series of trails and various huts, Pyhä-Luosto Park is a common destination for snowshoers looking to get out into nature and away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

For snowshoers looking for a bit more of a challenge, heading one a one-day expedition to the summit of Halti (1,365 meters/4,478 feet) is an excellent option. Finland’s highest peak offers great views out over the rest of the Scandinavian Mountains as well as down into the surrounding valleys in Finland and Norway.

Why should I choose Finland for my Snowshoeing adventure?

Stunning scenery

Boasting wooded hills, immense boreal forests, lakes and even some canyons, Finland is an immaculately beautiful backdrop for any snowshoeing adventure. Heading off into the country’s seemingly endless evergreen forests is a great way to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and see this picturesque part of the world.

The Northern Lights

Particles refracting in the earth’s atmospheres create an array of pink, green, yellow, blue and violet colors in the night sky that are known as the Northern Lights. This Northern Hemisphere phenomenon is most prevalent from November to March, happily coinciding with the peak snowshoeing season. Strap on some snowshoes and discover this sublime experience for yourself.

Anyone can do it

Due to its mostly flat terrain, Finland is the perfect place for first-time snowshoers. But its astounding natural beauty means plenty of more experienced ones come as well. The best way to get used to the sport – or just to get a bit of practice – is to romp through the enchanting boreal forests and over the modest fells. This way you can experience all of Finland’s most gorgeous scenery while learning the necessary techniques to succeed in snowshoes.
