Feel the pleasure of being out in the wilderness and the rewarding feeling of having spent a night out in the fresh air. You can sleep under the open sky, on braches under a traditional Scandinavian improvised shelter or maybe even in an igloo, all depending on the time of the year and the weather conditions.
This is a great opportunity to do something new, lower your shoulders and learn new outdoor skills. Great food and stories also falls within.

Hiking with snow shoes is a wonderful way of traveling when you want to go out and enjoy the arctic winter, both in the sparkling day light, the pale moon light or in the narrow beam of a head light. All these tours have their own special atmosphere. Walking on snow shoes demands no special skills. If you can walk you can snow shoe. Hiking with snow shoes is a pleasant experience in it self but can also be combined with other activities like wild life tracking, ice fishing or even hunting. It also gives good exercise regardless of age or physical fitness.
