The tour operates all year round, with specific features attached to each season. In the winter time, you will enjoy views of huge snow drifts, white trails and frozen trees, with very cold temperatures that may drop down to -30C! In January especially, the wild and beautiful forests look as if they are straight out of a fairytale! You will learn about the footprints you find around you in the snow. It’s a shame the brown bears will be sleeping as they have a very impressive paw print. But not to worry as we still have the chance of passing tracks made by wolves, lynx, wolverines, moose, reindeer, weasels, Arctic hare and many more.
