We invite you to discover the remote and silent wilderness of eastern Finland. Follow us on this guided snowshoeing week in the Hossa National Park and discover this magical winter wonderland.

Located in the province of Oulu, the Hossa National Park was established in 2017 as the 40th national park in the country. Home to bears, reindeers and woodpeckers, Hossa’s pristine wilderness and remoteness offers the ideal opportunity for those who are looking to escape from the bustle of daily life.

On this snowshoeing adventure, you will get to explore the ‘taiga’ forests, walk along ridges and over frozen lakes. Also, you’ll have the opportunity to take a glance at the history of this region and discover its historic rock paintings. During this program, we’ll walk approximately 6 hours every day in deep snow in varied terrain and with many short up- and down hills. Moreover, bear in mind that no previous snowshoeing experience is required but a good physical condition is necessary.

The unique wilderness of the Hossa National Park will be an excellent destination for this guided snowshoeing week. So, if you are ready to join us on this unique opportunity send your request and follow us on this snowshoeing tour in Finland!
