With snowshoes, you can explore Lapland’s winter on a wide range of terrain and very nature-friendly. Snowshoeing is very easy and you do not need any skiing skills. For example, to get started you will need just decent body balance and warm equipment. The easiest way to get started is by going to the snowshoe route, for example, instructed by the guide. If you want to go snowshoeing by yourself, it’s a good idea to take at least a map and plan a little bit where are you heading.
Snowshoes were originally intended to facilitate people’s everyday life during the snowy winter time and ancient Indians used snowshoes when they went hunting. However, the snowshoeing has nowadays become as a pure leisure activity. In Levi and Ylläs, you can rent snowshoes if you do not have them.
