Cross-Country Skiing Guided Holidays

Traversing Lapland from Levi to Muonio! | 2021

General Information

Length

8 days / 7 nights

Level of Skiing

Lapland is reputed as having accessible cross-country skiing for every level of ability and fitness.  There are rarely any hair-raising downhills and all of the climbs are spectacular, but do not involve heavy-duty huffing and puffing.  In other words, you will be in a set of foothills or flats.  Nonetheless, the flats do not last that long and you should consider yourself a fairly advanced Nordic skier to fully enjoy this tremendous vacation possibility. You should be able to use your preferred technique—classic or skate—for a distance of 25km (15.5 miles) a day.  You can, of course, go from classic to skate and skate to classic on different days (but not during the same day).

Accommodations
