Snowshoe / Northern Light
The excursion starts with a 15 minutes drive from Äkäslompolo to the National Park on the south side of Äkäskero. Here we put the snowshoes on and walk through a beautiful snow covered pine forest and rise towards the flat top of Äkäskero. On our way we climb over varied terrain and also steeper passages, but the hard work is rewarded once we reach the top. The view opens up towards the north, trees overblown with snow and above, nothing but sky. While our guide tells us about the various beliefs related to Auroras we tour the top of the fell and keep our eyes open to catch possible Northern Lights dancing in the sky. The most funniest part of the tour is the quick slide down the fell on our snowshoes. At the bottom of the fell we have some time to relax at Peurakaltio ski café, where we get to warm up and enjoy a hot drink and something sweet. At the end we drive back to Äkäslompolo again.
This snowshoe safari is a bit more demanding due to the length and the landscape, so it is especially recommended to people with some earlier experience or moderate physical condition.
