1 - 7 March 2020, Off trails -snowshoeing, Hossa National Park, Finland
On this snowshoeing tour you will get to explore the 'taiga' forests of eastern Finland. The week in the remote, silent wilderness, still safely and comfortably, is a great escape from the hustle and hassle of daily life. Our route goes mostly in Hossa national park through snow white forests, along ridges and over frozen lakes. Each night you will accommodate in a wilderness cabin, some of them without modern facilities but however with cosy atmosphere.
