Situated just south of the Arctic Circle and bordering Russia to the east, Eastern Finland is home to the Oulanka National Park and our 5 Day Wilderness Adventure allows you to explore and appreciate the stunning winter landscapes in a variety of ways.
Accompanied by Chris, your private guide, experience the true beauty of Eastern Finland in winter, when the snow-laden trees form ice sculptures in a natural setting, the lakes and rivers freeze over allowing access to undiscovered terrain and Finnish hospitality is at its best.
Explore the wilderness by husky dog sled, the silence of your surroundings broken only by the sound of your sled carving through the snow. Don your snowshoes and explore Oulanka National Park the Finnish way and, for the ultimate thrill seeking experience, travel by snowmobile along snowy forest trails and across frozen lakes taking in the ever changing scenery as you go. During your stay at a wilderness hotel close to the Russian border you will also have the chance to trek out one evening by snowshoe in search of the northern lights. Make your way deep into the forest far away from any light pollution for the very best chance to see the aurora borealis, an amazing natural phenomenon.
At the end of each action packed day return to the comfort of a small and friendly hotel where hospitality is a family tradition. You are assured both a warm welcome and hearty Finnish cuisine.
