  Who’s This For

You want a guided snowshoe hike for you and your friends, not with ten other people.

You want the easiest way to go snowshoeing from Helsinki.

You want a relaxed day in nature without schedule.

You want the length of the hike to suit your wishes.


When Can We Snowshoe?

Walking with snowshoes is a bit harder work than with normal shoes, but if there’s lot’s of snow and you sink in deep, walking in the forest becomes easier with snowshoes.

What’s the crossover point from normal shoes to snowshoes?

About 25 centimeters of snow, or 10 inches.

If there’s more snow than that, it’s worth snowshoeing. With less than that it’s easier to just walk in normal hiking shoes.

When is there over 25 centimeters of snow in Nuuksio?

Nobody can say for sure. Most likely months for it are January, February and March.

But don’t get hung up on the snow depth when planning a trip to the national park. The forest can be really, really beautiful in a wintery way even with less snow. The key is having snow covering the trees, and that can happen at any point in winter months.
