Cross-Country Skiing Guided Holidays
Traversing Lapland from Levi to Muonio! | 2024
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).
