Fantastic

A very busy and cold week but fantastic fun. Expect to we well fed, exhausted and probably bruised by the end of the week but equally thrilled with the beauty of basecamp and exhilarated with activities.

Complete change of scene though extremely cold

Base camp Oulanka is great, with a lovely atmosphere, delicious simple food and set in a most beautiful area. I was there at the end of December and it was minus 28 and only four hours daylight a day. The equipment they lend you is top notch and the advice you get from the team is excellent. The only problem I had was keeping my feet warm. Take thick wool socks (not polyester) and wear boots that are a bit too big. Henri was a fantastic guide and everyone who worked at the place were extremely friendly and helpful.

Northern exposure

A very enjoyable week in a remote part of Finland, balancing guided activities with self-determined time. Being taught to snow-shoe on the first day allowed us to explore the area independently, including a day spent on the breathtaking Little Bear walk. The trails were marked clearly, and the occasional bit of challenging terrain intensified our appreciation of the location’s serenity. Also, the tracks left by Arctic hares are amusingly rude in shape. Basecamp Oulanka provided a welcome contrast to the physical rigours of days spent outdoors, while upholding the 'green' principles that such an unspoilt place demands. The comforts of the lodge's private accommodation - en-suite wet rooms, under-floor heating and external space in the form of balconies or patios - were equalled by the cosiness of the communal facilities.

FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

We really enjoyed our Finnish Wilderness week. Oulanka base Camp was  very well run and definitely to be recommended. Our only criticism was that the group was supposed to be limited to 16 and there were actually 21, which was too many for the snowmobiling and the snow shoe safari to Castle rocks

An excellent opportunity to try a variety of winter activities in a wonderful setting.The location is ideal, snow covered woodlands right outside the door and a frozen lake to play on.
