Leave nothing but lines on this cross-country skiing experience in Lapland.
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 – traveling to secret lakes and unique 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.
Meet your guide in Rovaniemi for this half-day cross-country skiing adventure in the Taiga Snow Forest. 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.
