Luleå Archipelago Snowshoe Hike
Winter in Swedish Lapland is a season to be looked forward to; a time of cold, crisp days, white landscapes and blue skies. View the Northern Lights, cosy up in front of a wood burning stove with hot chocolate after a day outdoors. The Luleå Archipelago has a total of 1,300 islands and is an unique environment to explore. Between December and April the sea freezes up to a meter thick ice which is perfect for winter tours on cross-country skis or snowshoeing. You can enjoy miles and miles of vast, white landscapes a stone throw away from the city of Luleå.
On this tour you spend the days snowshoeing outside and in the evening you stay in remote back country cabins in the Luleå Archipelago. Here you can relax by the wood stove, enjoy a hot meal, warm drinks and even have the option to use a wood -fired sauna after a day of adventures.
The cabins used, are owned and maintained by the Luleå municipality and offer an authentic experience. Solar cells provide power for some lightning and 12V wall sockets for charging electronic devices. The cabins are equipped with kitchen, common room with a dining table, chairs and a wood burning stove and bunk beds. Near the cabins you will find a dry toilet. The islands are remote located and therefore open up op great opportunities to see the Northern Lights in the evening.
The first and the last evening from the tour you stay in a modern hotel in the city centre of Luleå, the other days you spend outdoors using cabins during the night. The days on the ice are fully guided. We provide transfer from Luleå Airport to the start of the tour, snowshoes, walking poles and accommodation. Beside that we provide all the food during the hike and promise you an unforgettable nature experience. This snowshoe winter hike is suitable for everyone who enjoys and can manage a 10 km forest walk.
