Arrival by plane in Tromsø and continue by shuttle bus to Kilpisjärvi village to log cabin. Dinner and overnight.
From the cabin settlement, we go on varied snowshoe tours in the region, of shorter and longer duration, partly directly from the settlement, partly with a taxi to the vast tundra landscapes. One day we will also be traveling with huskies and passing the wintry landscape either as a musher or in the sled. On the way there, we will stop for a small snack. As a conclusion, while we relax by a crackling fire with a coffee, tea and a small snack, we learn even more about the huskies and their way of life. Cold-weather clothes including shoes are provided and are included. You will also have one free day.
Despite the real Nordic winter, we will enjoy natural light. In the afternoon/ evening we even have great chances to see the Northern Lights, which draw mystical figures above our heads in various colors.
Return from Kilpisjärvi by bus and plane to Zurich. After the tour, if possible, you will still have some time of your own, to do what you prefer, sauna, shopping, etc. At dinner we can end the day with local specialties.

*Weather/Daylight. The weather is comparable to ours at the same time of the year in the Alps, eg Engadin. It can change quickly. The temperatures can be between about 0 ° C and -25 ° C or even lower. The air, however, is dry, so that you can feel even less cold than, for example, in the Swiss midlands with a rather humid climate. The daylight duration is quite long at this time (6 to 7 hours)! Every day means almost 10 more minutes of possible sunshine! Comparison: In Zurich about 10,5 hours of sunshine are possible at the same time.
*Meals. Breakfast is included in the price. Kilpisjärvi is a very small village, but has a rather large shop where we can buy snacks. The shop is easily accessible on foot.
*Level. Tours are technically easy, and you just need a basic fitness level. We will be hiking for about 3 to 5 hours a day, with an ascent of approx. 200m-500m, descent: approx. 200-500m, each day. Terrain: easy, flat to moderately rising, in open, hilly tundra landscape and through sparse forests.
*Equipment. The equipment is similar to snowshoe tours in the Alps. The tours are not avalanche dangerous. So we do NOT need any safety equipment. Together with the detailed information, you will also receive a detailed packing list.
