Thursday - Saariselkä day

Beautiful nature, soft furs and high speeds. All for you!

8 hours

This trip is full day experience in Inari’s most popular National Park areas. At start of the day we meet at our shop in Ivalo, where we hop on a car and drive to Saariselkä where we have a snow shoe trek in beautiful winter forest. After the trek we have a lunch on top of one of the highest fjell’s of the area, Kaunispää. From Kaunispää we have super nice views for the surrounding wilderness areas. What is the best way to descend from top of the fjell? Of course with toboggan! We have the longest tobogganing hill in Finland, 2000 meters of pure joy and terror! When we’r done with hills and speed we visit more calmer place with soft furs and big eyes… the Reindeers. We pay a visit to one of the reindeer farms hosted by local people and hear the life of the reindeer and people around them. We finish the back in Ivalo and you still have time to enjoy rest of the day and who knows maybe see some Northern Lights…  

The trip is executed with a minimum of 2 participants.

We start from Ivalon Eräsoppi / Xwander Nordic office at 8:45 and finish around 18:00
