HHS 2022 is canceled!
It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the 10th Skiing Across Finland event planned for this winter will be canceled due to the deteriorating outlook for Covid-19. At the beginning of December we had faith that the improvement in the corona situation would allow us to organize a successful HHS. Today however the situation is different.
On the brighter side we still hope to organize the 10th HHS at a future date when the Covid- 19 situation allows. We will announce the new date on facebook and on our website when the Covid- 19 situation allows.
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.
