We were recommended by a local guide to contact 7 Fells Up for off-trail snowshoeing tours, and it was a great tip that we happily pass on to others. We did two snowshoeing tours with them in mid March after speaking with their wonderful organizer, Sabrina. The first adventure was an evening tour to see the northern lights from a higher elevation. As the snow kept falling we were never able to see any northern lights, but it was a great opportunity to try off-trail snowshoeing in very fresh snow with our friendly guide, Adrien, who also brought along blueberry juice, Sabrina’s famous homemade cloudberry cakes, and sausages to grill over the fire in one of the area’s many “kotas”. Our second snowshoeing tour was a half-day event up one of the “fells”. Our very spirited and knowledgable Finnish guide Päivi led the way as we snowshoed off-trail upwards through the forest to a kota just below the tree line where we took a break for grilled reindeer sandwiches and more of Sabrina’s cloudberry cakes. They are to die for by the way. After that we continued up over a moonlike landscape to the top of the fell through untouched snow, beautiful sunshine and stunning panoramic views of Lapland. At the top we had a 360° view and could spot all of the other nearby fells. We then descended the mountain taking a different route while Päivi gladly told us more about the wilderness and the wildlife we were seeing, including a soaring Sea Eagle, an evasive, hard-to-spot Willow grouse and a Northern Woodpecker just meters away from us but too busy pecking for insects to pay us any attention. She also explained to us the concept of Kello trees. Both snowshoeing tours were true highlights of our trip to Ylläs, and we too highly recommend 7 Fells UP. Thank you Sabrina for everything. Vielen Dank für alles. Tusind tak!
