Winter Kit Hire

This section of our website is about kit which we can hire. Prices are per day and per week, but longer rental periods are also possible.

Arctic Clothing and Boots
Although outer protective clothing and winter boots are included in the price of our multiday safaris, they are not included within the price of our shorter safaris since we have found that the majority of our customers arrive already kitted out well for the winter.
If you are worried that you will need better boots or jackets or pants then you are still welcome to get them from us (if we have them available) at a hire cost of €10 per overall or €5 for jackets, €5 for salopettes and €5 per pair of boots.

BACK-COUNTRY SKI HIRE, CROSS-COUNTRY SKI HIRE & SKATE-HIRE

Our BC skis are primarily with NNN BC bindings and fish scales (i.e. no grip wax needed) although we also have some older skis and boots with SNS BC bindings (both fish-scale skis and ones that work with half-skins). We also have one pair of lighter, shorter, race-style back-country skis with classic SNS bindings which work for younger children. We do not stock any of the new nano base skis.

Our XC SKis are primarily with Classic SNS Bindings. We apply grip tape to the majority of these skis at the start of the seasons so they do not need to be waxed. We also share a set of classic waxable Karhu XC skis and boots with another operator. FYI: We have a few classic XC skis and boots available for children from 2 - 10 yrs and a decent range for age 11+.

Some years we have an ice-track on Ounasjärvi lake. When this is made, our classic Karhu ski boots work with our free-heel skates. We also have 2 sets of SNS BC skates.

FAT BIKES and E-FAT BIKES

We hire out fat bikes, fat maxes (kick-bikes with fat tyres) and electric-assisted fat bikes in both summer and winter. In winter, we sometimes add studed tyres to provide more friction (depending on the conditions).

Our bike hire price lists are maintained on our summer kit hire pages.


FUN STUFF

We have a large number of kick-sleds (rental includes a helmet if people wish), kids' toboggans (including some designed for pulling toddlers around with) and stigas, all of which can be rented should folk want the use of such equipment during their stay in Enontekiö.
