Activity description

Strap on some snowshoes and head out into the darkness of the backcountry, in search of nature's most stunning light display!

Your certified guide will pick you up straight from your accommodation to begin this adventure. Then, once they have provided you with your snowshoes, you will embark together into the snowy valleys, under a star-studded Arctic sky and silver moon. You will walk through low mountain birch forests, and on the way, you will make a stop in a clearing on the top of a hill to enjoy a 360° view of the vast nature. Your guide will also bring some warm berry juice for you to enjoy. Make the most of the amazing silence of the wilderness up in this corner of Sweden, and maybe, just maybe, experience the unique spectacle of the dancing Aurora Borealis overhead. 

The snowshoes and drinks are provided for this activity; however, we cannot guarantee that the Northern Lights will come out for us. This being said, a night snowshoeing under the Polar sky is a treat in itself, and there's no better place to do so than these starlit fields. In our small group of a maximum of 8 people, we guarantee an intimate and magical evening.

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Schneeschuhwanderung leider ohne Nordlichter. Wir waren mehrmals abseits eines Pfades im tiefen Schnee unterwegs, was etwas anstrengend war, aber einfach kann ja jeder :)

Prior to doing this tour I was a bit apprehensive about snowshoeing after a bad experience in Norway, however after taking the tour with Aril I am now an addict and can’t wait to snowshoe some more! The walk through the forest was perfect and Aril provided great facts and insight along the way which made the tour both exciting and very interesting.
