Experience Finnish winter by skis or snowshoes
New rental equipment for winter hiking has arrived to Haltia! You can now rent traditional Altai-skis with poles or snowshoes for 15€/ 3h/ pair. For a longer (overnight stay) in Nuuksio National Park, the renting price is 24€/ 24h.
Altai-skis have originated from the Altai Mountains in North Asia, where skis are still considered an essential tool for travel and hunting during the long winters. Here in Nuuksio the skis are perfect for wandering off of nature trails and experiencing the true Finnish nature with its snow blankets and magical snow covered forests. Snowshoes are also very nice to try out in order to get the true feeling of a northern winter. Both are suitable for both beginners as well as experienced hikers. We will gladly guide you on how to use the equipment and provide you a map with route recommendations.
We also recommend wearing hiking boots with both the skis and the snowshoes. It is possible to rent felt boots from Haltia (5€/ day).
