Winter and Snowshoeing in Nuuksio National Park


  Winter is over. Next snowshoe hikes between January and March 2023.


 Who’s This Hike For

  • You want a guided snowshoe hike with your friend, not with ten other people.
  • You want a relaxed day in nature without schedule.
  • You want the easiest way to go snowshoeing from Helsinki.
  • You want the length of the hike to suit your wishes.


At it’s best Nuuksio National Park is a really good destination for winter hikes and snowshoeing, especially if you can go to the quiet side of the park. You don’t need to plan this hike a month in advance and hope for the best, we can go the day after tomorrow. My hikes include everything you need. If you want to go further than Nuuksio.

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.

So what’s the crossover point from normal shoes to snowshoes then?

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.

Okay, 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.

What You Need and What You Can Borrow

My snowshoe hikes work the same way as all my other tours: you step into my minibus and I take care of everything else.

You can borrow everything you need, including the snowshoes and poles, and outdoor clothing according to weather.

All you need to have are clothes you’re comfortable to walk in from your hotel to my car.

My trips include snacks, lunch and drinks for the day.
