- Snowmobiling in the wilderness
- Snowshoeing and dogsledding
- Enjoy a reindeer ride
Discover the beautiful wilderness of Finnish Lapland on snowshoes, cross-country skis and snowmobiles.
Our wilderness base located at the edge of the Oulanka National Park is a truly spectacular setting for this fun-filled winter holiday, designed to introduce you and your family to some of the most popular Nordic activities.
There is a chance to meet the indigenous Sami people of Finland, and take a trip on a traditional reindeer-pulled sleigh. A highlight of the week will certainly be time on the husky farm, playing with the puppies, before heading out on a dogsled ride through forests and across frozen lakes.
If you're lucky, and the night sky is clear, you might even catch a glimpse of the magical Northern Lights.
