Altai skis are short, easy-to-use forest skis that combine the best features of snowshoes and skis and do not require previous experience in skiing.

Day 1
At the start of the trip your guide will give a brief introduction to the technic of Altai skiing. The trip starts at our Safari club in the afternoon and heads along the side of the fell Kaunispää up to the highlands of Saariselkä. The skiing distance and speed will be adjusted according to the skill and fitness level of the group. On average the skiing time is 2 hours. At the cabin the guide lights up the woodstove to heat the cabin, and together you pick up the water from the crystal clear creek outside and prepare a simple but tasty evening meal. After dinner there is still time to sit by the fire outside or even make short moonlight skiing trip to fell top and, if lucky, admire the Aurora Borealis. Later in the evening its time for a late supper and warm sleeping bags!

Day 2
In the morning we will have a breakfast and head through another route back to Saariselkä.
