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

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

Below you can find 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. Also check out the skiing trail map I added below as well as the little video which will give you an impression of the amazing landscape during winter times.
