/ Which boots for snowshoeing in Lappland?
Are you camping? Staying in huts? Pulling a pulk? All of that will make a difference.
Finally, why snowshoes not skis? March in Lapland is prime ski season. There are many hundreds of kms of prepared tracks, thousands of kms of tracks left by other people hut to hut or camp touring, and you can make your own tracks of course as well. I've tried snowshoeing in Lapland at that time of year, and even with huge snowshoes breaking trail was completely exhausting. We didn't reach the potential icefall that we wanted to see. Even just track skis would have been a lot better, let alone proper touring skis.
Thanks for taking the time to reply. I've only done track skiing before, I've no experience of backcountry skiing, would Scarpa T4s be suitable boots?
In answer to your question we will be camping and using forest shelters, hopefully in the Ivalo area.
