Snowshoeing

Guided Snowshoeing hikes or welcome to snow white wonderland!

It’s execellent way to combine staying in one of our cosy cottages and enjoy the local winter scenery views putting your snowshoes on.

Snowshoeing is the perfect alternative for people, who don’t want to ski and to try an ancient Finnish tradition of alternating between intence cold and heat, that followed by relaxation. On arrival, we learn how to use the snowshoes and start the guided natural and cultural adventure.

Let’s join us exploring local forest lands and experience winter with our professional English-speaking local guide. Our guide will take you off the beaten track into the heart of Janakkala’s forests, that is situated in Southern Finland near Hämeenlinna and surrounded by panoramic views..

Walk along historic Laurinmäki area with medieval stone church of St.Lauri, Hakoinen castlehill – a steep hill with, used to be, the medieval fortification Hakoinen Castle.

The trail leads the hiker to the top of rocky Määkynmäki from which there are spectacular views to the direction of Lake Kernaala and Hakoinen Castle or Unikonlinna, a hillfort in Janakkala. During the hike we stop a few times for rest, photos and to provide you with the information about our region.

Our modern and light weight snowshoes give everyone the opportunity to immerse yourself in an authentic winter experience in a location rich in Finnish history. You don’t need any previous experience to follow on a guided tour. It’s a mix of fun, challenge, and learning new being outside in nature.

You’ll find that this trip is less like a guided tour and more like going out with friends and exploring the world around you.

We would love for you to come visit Janakkala’s beautiful historic spots, that hold rich historical value of South Finland.
