Experience the beautiful white and sparkling winter wonderland in the forests around Kolarbyn. With snowshoes, you will experience nature and the forest on a close and peaceful way.
During the tour we walk in the snow and you are given tips and advice on wildlife such as how to make a fire in winter. During the tour, many traces of our wild animals can be seen, and if we are lucky, we might see traces of the wolf family nearby. We can also have the chance to see other animals when we move almost silently through the forest. We bring lunch and cook together in the forest and we will try to take us to wonderful places with magical views. After a few hours on snowshoes, we are back in Kolarbyn and the charcoal huts, now you can use the sauna and perhaps take a refreshing dip before you go to bed.
