A traditional Finnish pastime that offers access to some of the most remote parts of the Northern Boreal Forest, clip in for a scenic tour into the heart of Lapland – learning more about the area’s mystical past and festive present. Track footprints in the deep snow as you explore the Taiga – travelling to landmarks along the way.

This tour is organized and operated from Rovaniemi on the outskirts of the Finnish Taiga. Part of the Lapland area of the Arctic Circle, this Boreal Forest is the world’s biggest wilderness - stretching east in an unbroken belt from Norway to Newfoundland.

Suited to groups of friends and families alike, this activity is ideal for total beginners and snow experts – allowing you to navigate parts of this festive forest that can only be seen on foot. Explore the area’s distinctive coniferous tree line on this scenic Nordic skiing tour – following footprints in the snow to mystical new horizons.

Following your guide back into town, your transport will be waiting to take you back to your accommodation.

Nach dem Pick up am Hotel und einem Kurzes Zwischenstopp ging es direkt in die Natur, wo wir gemeinsam als kleine Gruppe eine Einführung ins Langlaufen bekamen. Mara ist ein freundlicher und sehr aufgeschlossener Guide! Auch das Equipment war erstklassig. Schon nach 15 Minuten konnten wir selbstständig fahren und trafen die Gruppe zu einem abschließenden Tee und Gebäck. Rundum eine tolle Erfahrung!
