Peaceful Winter Swamp - Gliding Snowshoeing Expedition in Patvinsuo National Park

Welcome to join us on a peaceful gliding snowshoeing expedition in Patvinsuo National Park. 

During the excursion, we'll revel in the beauty and tranquility of the winter wilderness. We'll observe the unique swamp landscape while gliding snowshoeing and also take in the view from the observation tower located in the heart of the vast swamp. Gliding snowshoeing allows us to explore the area more freely compared to the warmer seasons, and we can choose our own path. The snow provides a comfortable surface to ski on, and the flat swamp terrain is ideal for gliding snowshoeing, even for beginners. The trip doesn't require prior gliding snowshoeing experience and offers an excellent opportunity to become acquainted with the activity and equipment. 

During the expedition, we will ski approximately 8 kilometers, with a break at the halfway point near a designated campfire site, where you can even use the fire to prepare your own refreshments.  

Please note that the excursion is weather-dependent. In case the conditions are not suitable for safe gliding snowshoeing, or if there is insufficient snow cover, we will not proceed with the gliding snowshoeing activity.
