Snowshoeing Criss Cross in the Winter Wonderland!
Come and see the beautiful scenery, breathe the cleanest air in the world, hear the silence, smell the evergreen fresh forest and feel the Northern paths under your snowshoes!

During this activity we will hike and see the most beautiful spots and sights of Liesjärvi National Park, among others the unique Kyynäränharju Ridge (please see the pictures!). The guide will tell you about the local nature while experiencing the wintery wonderland and in the midway we will gather around open fire and fill our bellies with local delicacies served with traditional Finnish pot coffee, tea and blueberry soup.
