Your adventure begins and ends in the comfort of a small and friendly wilderness hotel where hospitality is a family tradition and you are assured a warm welcome. However the highlight of this trip will be a 2 night stay in the very heart of the wilderness, in a cosy log cabin, far removed from life's modern conveniences. This is a truly unique experience where you really can 'get away from it all'.
During the week you will explore the silent forests and frozen marshland by various modes of transport, starting with an exhilarating snowmobile safari. Then it's time to pack your overnight bags in preparation for your journey even further into the wilderness which can be taken by snowshoe or back country ski.
No longer just an ancient means of getting around in the snow, snowshoeing has now become a winter activity in its own right. In an ever changing world where responsible travel is key, what better pursuit is there than exploring under your own steam and, what's more, you don't need to be a seasoned winter sports enthusiast to take part, no experience is necessary and anyone can do it! The same goes for back country skis which are ideal for both beginners and more advanced cross country ski enthusiasts alike, allowing you the freedom to access all types of terrain without the need for prepared trails.
Once at the cabin you will help to collect firewood, prepare meals on the open fire, relax in the sauna, go ice-fishing and search for the north lights; all under the expert guidance of your personal and private guide. As night falls you will be left to your own devices before your guide returns each morning.
After 2 nights in the wilderness it's time to return to the wilderness hotel where a hot shower and a hearty meal await. But the adventure isn't over yet!. Your final day brings yet another exhilarating experience as you take a husky safari through the winter landscapes. The perfect end to a perfect holiday in the wilds of Lapland.
