About Lähiretki NY - the Doer

As a Nature Instructor I enjoy local outdoors in all seasons almost all weathers. Snowshoes are wonderful way to reach the snowy paths and icy lake where otherwise it would be difficult to go in winter. You don't need any special skills or athlete's body to enjoy the slow motion and explore how the nature looks like in winter. I learned snowshoeing during my studies as Nature Instructor and fell in love with it!


Customer should wear clothing suitable for existing weather (rental clothes or winter shoes are not available). Customer will wear his/her own shoes with the organizer's snowshoes. The most suitable shoes for snowshoes are flat, round shape tip shoes with some bootlegs. The snowshoes fit shoe sizes 37-46. For other sizes make a request. Consider that the wind from the lakeside might require an extra layer of clothing. Customers' own travel insurance is highly recommended.
