Day 4

Private Snowshoeing or Nordic skiing trip
You will be taken for a memorable snowshoeing or Nordic skiing tour into the beautiful nature of Levi.

Snowshoeing is a great way to experience Lapland’s winter landscapes. You can enjoy fresh, clean air, experience the peace and tranquility of nature and also enjoy some light and fun exercise. People in the Arctic have used snowshoes for centuries to reach deep snowy landscapes that would otherwise be inaccessible. Using snowshoes is easy – reasonably good balance and suitable clothing is all you need. During the trip there will be a break to enjoy hot drinks and a snack in the lovely winter surroundings.

Nordic or cross-country skiing, is somewhat of a national sport in Finland. It is suitable for everybody and extremely good for the body and mind, with beautiful winter scenery serving as an inspiring backdrop.

Northern Lights Hunting from your Chalet

Every night you have the possibility to go out and search for the Northern Lights. Your host will be checking the possibilities to see the Aurora and will notify you for the best possibilities.

Please note that the Northern Lights cannot be guaranteed as it's a natural phenomenon.
