Sleep – Eat – Skate – Repeat – Cross-Country Skiing in Finland

Enjoying the Aurora Borealis in Finland

We spent an awesome and intense week in Saariselkää in February 2019 – solely sleeping, eating, skating (see last years report here).

Here is the rough plan we executed on skis – for me as a beginner this was quite a challenge. We had our base hut close to the town center of Saariselkää. (Check out the skiing trail map here).

1. day: Base hut – Rönkönlampi hut – Kilopää – Base hut
Total: 21,3 km

2. day: Base hut – Kaunispää – Palo Oja – Moitakuru hut – Lutto hut – Base hut
Total: 31,9 km

3. day: rest day
Total: 0 km

4. day: some trails around Saariselkää town
Total: 12 km

5. day: Base hut – Luulampi – Vellinsärpimänoja
Total: 23 km

6. day: Vellinsärpimänoja – Base hut
Total: 12,30 km
