DUE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION OF THE CORONA EPIDEMIC WE HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE THE 10TH SKIING THROUGH FINLAND EVENT BY ONE YEAR UNTIL 2022. WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE EXACT DATES ON OUR WEBSITE AND FACEBOOK BY THE END OF 2020 AND WILL INFORM THOSE WHO HAVE PRE-REGISTERED BY E-MAIL.
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.
