Snowshoe hike 4 hours

Snowshoe hike 4 hours

This is our long tour where you get the full experience of exploring a more varied landscape with forest, lakes and peatland. Learn to read the vegetation to know what lies hidden under the snow. We got more time to move off-trail, search for wildlife tracks and answer questions. Half-way, we make a fire in the snow and enjoy a snack and hot beverage. Bring your camera, you will see bizarrely bent pine trees which form sculptures covered in ice crystals. As the shadows draw lines over the snow you might find how the silence of this landscape slowly spreads a deep calm in your soul. 


You meet our friendly guide at Granö Beckasin and receive equipment and an introduction to snowshoe hiking. During the tour, you hike together as a small group of up to 2-8 guests plus guide. The group moves at a relaxed pace stopping regularly to look at wildlife tracks and learn about ecology and winter adaptation of plants, animals, fungi and lichen. You do not need to be athletic to follow along just fine.

Since you booked our four-hour tour, there is enough time to explore a varied landscape of forest, lakes and wetlands. We move both on and off-trail in the deeper snow, search for wildlife tracks and there is room for questions and discussion about nature.

Halfway, we light a fire in the snow and enjoy a hot beverage and snack. For the break, please bring a warm pullover or jacket. Maybe on the way home you want to try and lead the way with the compass for a while?

On this tour you are encouraged to try new things and actively take part in our little adventure

  • What should I wear? This tour has a snack break where we stop moving and stand or sit around a campfire. For this break it’s nice to have an extra layer of clothing in your backpack like a warm jumper.


You can rent winter clothing from us (see below). We recommend the following clothing for all winter activities. As a base layer you should wear a set of warm long wool underwear combined with a warm and windproof jacket and trousers such as ski or snowmobile clothing. Put on comfortable hiking

boots/winter boots and two layers of wool socks (one thin liner, one thick pair). Then you should wear a woolly hat, gloves and mittens and a scarf. If it’s really cold it’s nice to have a face mask.
