Snowshoeing trip to the peaks of Koli - an easy and fun winter activity!
Snowshoeing is the most popular winter activity in Koli! On a guided snowshoeing tour, we will learn the basics of snowshoeing and enjoy the beautiful nature and national landscape of Koli. An experienced wilderness guide will lead you to Koli's best spots following the marked snowshoe trail and some trails only they know. During the trip, we will visit the “Temple of Silence” and the famous Paha-, Akka-, and Ukko-Koli. Koli is the southernmost place in Finland where charming frost-covered trees form in winter.
No prior experience in snowshoeing is required! Participants will be provided with reliable and easy-to-use snowshoes, which are good for walking on steeper, snowy, and icy terrain. Poles are also provided for additional support.
