Available from January 1 until March 31.
Snowshoe trekking provides an active way of experiencing Oulu in winter. The frozen sea as well as the snowy forest and swamp areas provide fascinating surroundings for unforgettable exploration. Snowshoeing doesn’t require previous experience and is suited for anyone with a basic fitness.
We arrange many kinds of snowshoeing safaris in Oulu and rent gear for independent trekking. Our selection includes ready-made trips but we also arrange longer hikes.
On request, at the end of the guided trips it’s possible to light a campfire for roasting sausages and preparing pot coffee in the traditional Finnish way.
If you choose to start the trek in the evening when it’s dark, and if the weather is clear, it’s possible to experience a beautiful starry sky and even northern lights (aurora borealis).
From the beginning of January to the end of March, we organize a public snowshoeing safari in Oulu every week.
