See the stories of the wildlife written in the snow
Snowshoeing is a one of a kind experience and easy for everyone to learn. Join us on a magical walk through Liesjärvi national park into your own personal winter wonderland.
During this guided tour we will snowshoe through a breathtaking landscape carved by time and shrouded by old growth forest which remains teeming with life even in the winter. Beneath a thick blanket of snow, the forest is alive and well, you will see the stories of wildlife on the surface of the snow as the fox tracks follow the hares and the willow grouse burrows his way alongside our trail.
Explore the park in peaceOur snowshoe excursion is perfect for those who would like to escape the city and spend their day experiencing winter in the wilderness. You don’t need to have any previous experience since our guide will teach you all you need to know about snowshoeing. The small group size offers an intimate experience in nature and allows your guide to attend to individual questions and needs.
A hidden gem of Southern FinlandThis day trip starts from Helsinki and we will take you to Liesjärvi national park. It is one of Finland’s oldest national park and we consider it the hidden gem of Southern Finland, since it is located 100 km from Helsinki. Liesjärvi is free from the overly populated crowds of international visitors, letting us explore the park in peace.

From Start to Finish: Your Journey for the Day
Testing the limits of snowshoesOnce we have arrived at the national park, the group will begin their journey through the forest making our own trail and testing the limits of snowshoes. During the adventure, your guide will provide details about the surroundings and instructions on different techniques used while snowshoeing.
Warm up in a traditional Finnish wilderness hutAfter an hour of snowshoeing, we will arrive at a beautiful wilderness hut which will be heated by our campfire. While your guide starts the fire and begins preparing a traditional Finnish-style lunch and campfire coffee, there will be plenty of time to take photos, explore the beautiful surroundings, talk, make snow angels and enjoy the tranquility of Finland’s Taiga forest.
Capture the mysticism of the TaigaAfter lunch, the snowshoeing will continue as we explore the beauty of Liesjärvi under the towering snow-covered spruces. After snowshoeing for roughly one hour, the group will make their way back to the starting point, feeling refreshed and fully charged from this unique experience in nature.
