Mystical atmosphere at the old mill
This premium snowshoe adventure starts with a 20 minute drive north from Äkäslompolo to Äkäsmylly, an old watermill set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. As we strap on snowshoes and head off into the wilderness, you immediately begin to soak up the mystical atmosphere of the area. We walk over deep, untouched snow, close to the open Äkäsjoki River and Äkäslinkka rapids. Marvel at the silence of the Lappish night, broken only by the flow of the river, a heartbeat, or the click of a camera. Here, under an open sky, so very often filled with the brightest of stars, we hope that the natural phenomena of the Northern Lights will also make an appearance. We then head back on snowshoes to the cosy eco-café for a warm drink by the fire.
