  1. Ah… snowshoeing is one of the winter activities that I want to try badly. Good to read your experiences when snowshoeing in Pyha Luosto in Lapland. The snow looks thick and views are amazing. I bet you had a very good time!

  2. Among the various things that I have done as adventure sports, snow trekking, skiing and snowboarding is something I have yet to try. It was interesting to read about showshoeing – from how it helps you walk better with better weight distribution to actually hiking around with it. Definitely something that I need to look out for.

    The Pyhä-Luosto National Park looks like a wonderful place to visit in Finnish Lapland. We have visited Swedish Lapland and really loved that pristine snow-covered scenery that you also captured so beautifully in Pyhä. It’s good to see that snow-shoeing is suitable for anyone, though as I struggle with hiking more than a very short distance, I think I’d need to build up stamina first!

    This is very new to me – snowshoeing. Nice to know about how it all originated. I would surely love to include snow-shoeing in my itinerary when I head to Lapland. Pyha ski resort will be in my bucket list for that. Why to go somewhere else when you have already helped me narrow down the choice.

    Pyhä Ski Resort is an ideal location for winter sports enthusiasts. I don’t think I will have the guts to try snowshoeing due to my limited tolerance for frigid temperatures. This post made me imagine what it’s like. I’m also curious to see what else Pyhä has to offer.

  6. I’m dreaming of our winter getaways already and this looks divine! My husband would love this. Adding this to my bucket list!

  7. Snowshoeing is such a fun way to explore. It looks easy, but it really takes a lot of effort to walk through the snow. The last time I did it was when I was in Vermont a few years ago. I need to try again!

  8. This is a wonderful way to see the natural beauty of the area, and I’ve always wanted to try snow shoeing. It’s good to know that snow shoeing is not all that different from hiking, because I can easily do that. Since I don’t ski (well), I would love to go on this beautiful outdoor adventure with my camera in hand. It looks so beautiful in the snow, especially on such a blue-sky day like you enjoyed!

    Glad to know about  snowshoeing in Lapand. We haven’t been to that part of Finland and good to know we can experience it there. Being on the snow is always so very exciting. The photos here are so refreshing and enticing and one wishes to be there sometime.

  10. I love those regional, unique activities. Amazing that you can snow shoe only in Finland. Well, right now, I’m looking very much forward to summer, however, I can totally cherish your beautiful pictures of the landscape covered by snow. And finally, it’s good to have something to look forward to when it gets cold again 😉 I should definitely put Finland on my list of destinations since I believe it’s quite underrated.

  11. While I’ve never been snowshoeing here, I’ve tried it with a local outdoor club and loved it. I received a pair one year for my birthday since my family knew I enjoyed it so much.  It’s a great way to be active outdoors in the winter.

  12. Snowshoeing is so much fun! I tried it last winter in Vancouver for the first time and had a great time. I’m glad you tried it and had fun. Thanks for sharing your experience in Lapland.
