Snowshoe treks and Cross-country skiing school
Snowshoes are the perfect way of exploring the mighty Ylläs fells – in complete silence. The trek starts at Kellokas, now being developed into a guide centre for the national park, right up near the tree line. The snow packed down by the wind is easy to walk on, but forging a way through the deep fell gullies can be quite hard work.
The scenery and the wonders of the Varkaankuru gorge are, however, well worth the effort, whether the trek is made in dazzling sunshine or an arctic blizzard, by day or by night. The guide’s familiarity with the terrain, its flora and fauna is the difference between an ordinary safari and a Snow Fun Safari.
