Winter walking trails
Winter walking trails take you easily to snowy forest and campfire sites. Trails are maintained with a snow mobile so it is easy to walk there just with your normal winter shoes. Please note that most of the trails are not illuminated. Plan your winter trips properly so the darkness won’t surprise you.
With snowshoes you can easily go to places that can’t be reached skiing or walking. Fells and forests are waiting to be conquered! In Sallatunturi snowshoes are rented by Salla Ski Resort. Snow shoe trails are marked with blue sticks that have a reflector.
Prepare yourself for winter adventures:
Dress warmly, keep especially your toes, fingers and head warm.
Extra gloves and socks are good to have with you.
Note that there is only few hours of daylight in the mid-winter. Make sure darkness won’t surprise you. Take at least water bottle with you.
