Snowshoeing in Hietasaari, Oulu

Snowshoe trekking on the frozen sea and foresty area

Available in Finnish and English
2 hours
4 spots per experience
January - March

What are we going to do

We will meet at Sokos Hotel Eden in Nallikari. In the beginning we will adjust the snowshoes to fit everyone’s footwear, set the walking staffs to correct height and demonstrate how the equipment works. Then we’ll head out on a route that takes us over the frozen sea to the beautiful wintery wooded areas of Hietasaari.

Snowshoe trekking provides an active way to experience the frozen sea and some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. It doesn’t require previous experience and as the altitudes differ very little in Oulu, practically the whole trip takes place on the sea level and is suited for anyone with a basic fitness.

Unorganised. Nice guide but thin knowledge about the area and walks. We did not need the snowshoes at all. Would not recommend this tour.
