Snowshoe walk at Arctic Retreat
Swedish Lapland, Sweden
Whilst there are many ways to explore the snowy wilderness of Lapland, a snowshoe walk enables you to truly appreciate the silence of your surroundings, as the only sounds to be heard are the gentle plodding of your feet, branches cracking and birdsong.
Snowshoes are the perfect way to explore the deep snow, as their wide surface area evenly distributes your body weight to stop you sinking into the deep powder. Along the way, your guide will show you how to spot animal tracks from the moose and grouse who inhabit the area. You’ll then be taught how to build an outdoor campfire, which you’ll use to prepare a hot drink before making your way back to the lodge.
