Snowshoe walking in Finland.

When the Finnish country is covered with a beautiful snow blanket this is an exceptional example of tranquil beauty. But because of this snow, not every place is easily accessible. Or is it? If you go snowshoe walking, you will discover surprising places that you would have never visited otherwise!

Snowshoe walking

More than six thousand years ago people discovered that it is better to walk on snow if you distribute your weight over a larger area. They made 'shoes' in the shape of a kind of tennis racket of flexible wood, such as willow toes and hardwood after which snowshoe walking was born! Because of the snowshoes you won’t sink into the snow, and previously unreachable places become accessible.

Ruka and Oulanka National Park

Finland has several parks, such as Oulanka National Park. In Oulanka National Park you can walk through unspoiled nature and wander around for hours without meeting anyone. It has a diversity of flora and fauna that makes every walk unique. Ruka is located in the municipality of Kuusamo in Finland, and is the ultimate winter sports area. The area around Ruka is mountainous and crossed with countless lakes and rivers.
