Private snowshoe safari for northern lights; Take a white hike! Open your senses and experience a silence of the forest in the night.

Using snowshoes is easy, you don’t need to be a skilled skier to learn what snowshoe hiking is all about – reasonably good balance and warm clothing is all you need.
