This trip has been graded as grade B (moderate). It requires a spirit of adventure and good fitness. As the location of this trip is not far from the Arctic circle, there is 24 hours of sunlight at this time of year.
When out in the sun care should be taken to drink plenty of water and protect yourelf, especially on the boat as the sun's intensity can be amplified by reflections off the lake.
The hotel that we use on this trip is of a high standard.
Please note that the facilities in the bear hide are more basic with dry toilets and no showers (please see accomodation section for further details) as they are designed in such a way as to not interfere with the wildlife.

The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Requires a spirit of adventure and some fitness, as the trip may involve more activities or longer journeys.
Wildlife: Trips may be wholly wildlife focused, or contain an element of wildlife viewing within a less specific itinerary.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
