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
