Hiking in snowshoes is possible almost anywhere, but there are signposted tracks in Saariselkä and Kiilopää, and also in Inari in late winter. The tracks nearby are a few kilometres long and well-marked. In late winter, the crunchy snow makes it easy to negotiate the highland fells, while enjoying the warm sunshine. Many companies in the region offer guided excursions and hire out snowshoes. You can also find snowshoe hiking trips on the weekly programme.
Snowshoes enable you to move freely off the beaten ski tracks making it the perfect sport for solo hikers
