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.

FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

Fantastic- from start to finish, this really was a holiday to remember. Not only was the place incredible. The people I met on the trip were fantastic! Even before the trip the organisational skills from everyone was brilliant and I felt very well looked after in such a tranquil environment.

FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

I can't think of a better way to have spent the last xmas than being on this amazing adventure.  The entire staff at the basecamp was welcoming and helpful. The food was delicious and the accomodation is pleasant. The tour is very well organized. We had at least 3 hours of good exercises every day and there were a good variety of them too for everyone. Time went by so quickly everyday and I truely enjoyed every minute of it.

FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

A fantastic holiday really enjoyed all the activities especially the Huskys and the Quinze Building (felt like a real achievement to build and sleep in it). The surrounding area was beautiful and it felt like a real break to re charge batteries.  Accommodation and food were ideal and the guides were all really helpful, professional, good fun and along with all the other great people I met, made the holiday.
