At its best, snowshoeing is a feeling of freedom, genuine joy and discovering your inner child! When you walk in the deep snow, you can forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life, forget about accomplishment and just be present surrounded by pure white snow. Metsäkädet snowsoeing excursions are suitable for adults and children alike, if you want to stop and observe nature, hear stories about the area and its wildlife and perhaps discover a new, more relaxed perspective on snowshoeing. Everyday life is often a chore, snowshoeing doesn't have to be!
