Morning Snowshoe Hike
Capture the true feeling of a winter landscape in the arctic. Your guide will take you to learn the wintry way of movement with snowshoes. While walking on the snow, you will experience the Abisko walley and the sparkling snow crystals throughout the snowfields.
In Abisko there is a lot of animals that dwell in the birch forest during winter, so the possibility to see a lot of tracks is quite big. Most likely you will see tracks of forest hare, ptarmigan, foxes, lemmings, and if you are lucky you might even spot tracks form a moose.
During the tour we will have a break and enjoy some warm berry juice while the only sound you hear is the sough of the forest and fells. If there is a clear sky you will also get a spectacular view over the lake Torneträsk and the Abisko mountain range which includes one of Sweden’s most famous mountain formations Lapporten which is a U-valley sculptured by the ice age.
Dress warm, with mittens / gloves, warm hat and warm pants & jacket or an overall. It’s recommended to bring a backpack so you can bring an extra sweater or take some clothes of if you get to warm when hiking.
