THE 10TH SKIING ACROSS FINLAND EVENT WILL BE ORGANIZED ACCORDING TO THE PLANNED FEBRUARY-APRIL 2022 SCHEDULE.
The final decision on skiing will be made by the beginning of December based on the corona situation at that time.
We are currently preparing for the event and the goal will be to ski in two different groups. The first group (so-called full journey) will ski from Virolahti via Ilomantsi and Kuusamo to the Arctic Ocean on February 27-March 31, 2022. The second group will ski from Ilomantsi via Kuusamo to the Arctic Ocean on March 13-April 6, 2022.
There is still space for new participants on the second group from Ilomantsi to Kuusamo on March 13 – March 24, 2022.

SKIING THROUGH FINLAND (in Finnish – “HIIHTÄEN HALKI SUOMEN” or HHS) is skied across a varied glacial terrain of forests, frozen lakes, and swamps. We ski through town centers as well as crossing uninhabited wilderness areas quite close to the Russian border. In the far north we approach the end of our trip in the treeless mountains of Lapland on the way to the final destination, the shore of the Barents Sea. Every ski day or “Hiitopaiva” can promise to bring something new and challenging for the HHS skier.
HHS is the world’s longest guided skiing trek lasting 34 days and covering approximately 1,800 km in length. Daily journeys average 57 km and vary from 40 to 80 km.
HHS is skied in classic cross-country style and commonly follows established snowmobile and hiking routes while connecting along the way with municipal ski centers. Newly groomed routes will be opened for the skiers as required.
Weather conditions can vary from bright sunshine to snow storms. Temperatures fluctuate from typical winter cold to the warmth of springtime.
HHS 2021 is the ski trip of a lifetime. Contact the organizers for more information.
