1 hour (30 minutes skiing)
You’ll have everything you need to take to the slopes. It’s easy to learn, a bit like ice-skating, and a great way to see Saariselkä’s landscape.
Cross country skiing is one of the ways people travelled around snowy countries in the olden days, which you’ll learn all about. They needed skis to chase game, gather firewood, and to see their friends.
- Now it’s a sport that people do for fun - and you can too. You’ll be joined by a guide who’ll show you around and take you on a route that suits you.
- All you need is reasonable balance and your thermal suit which you’ll get when you arrive in Lapland. Then, off you go for your snowy adventure.
- The tracks are pristine and are part of a vast network of maintained cross country ski trails in Lapland.
