Try snowshoeing on Hiukka´s beach in Sotkamo!

Welcome to learn snowshoeing on beautiful Hiukka´s beach near center of Sotkamo! During this family-friendly walk you will learn the secrets and techniques of snowshoeing. We will be walking on the ice of Sapsojärvi lake and on Hiukka's beautiful ridge in the middle of a snowy forest. Under the guidance of a wilderness guide, you will learn the secrets of snowshoeing both on the trail and off the trail. We will walk in easy and mainly flat terrain, but you will also get to try walking downhill and climbing uphill on Hiukka's beautiful ridge.

Along the way you will also hear stories about the area and its rich nature. On our snowshoe walk we also might see some animal tracks on snow. For example, can you recognise the snow tracks of a hare or a squirrel?
