Snowshoeing in Finland

Snowshoeing in Finland

This was an excellent holiday at the cosy and warm Oulanka Basecamp. We were provided with clothing that kept us toasty and boots that were very comfortable. The food was locally sourced as much as possible, tasty and filling. Overall, I cannot fault this holiday.

Snowshoeing in Finland

Snow Shoeing and Much More

Finland is beautiful and Oulanka Basecamp a superb place to spend an active week. The facilities, equipment, food, activities and above all the staff - for whom nothing was too much trouble and who all clearly loved their work - were first-rate. The room accommodation was comfortable and the communal lounge, bar, sauna, hot tub and dining area in a separate building a few seconds walk away. We wanted and expected cold weather - which we got - but were never cold because everywhere was well heated and the winter clothing and boots provided were of the best quality (and all in with the price). The Basecamp is in the middle of nowhere - again, wanted and expected - in an area of forest, lakes, rivers (aka Finland!) but also unexpected hills and, at times, steep climbs. What I liked best? Pretty much everything and there were not enough hours in a day to do all I wanted. Also being wonderfully tired every evening after a hard day of snow shoe walking, cross-country skiing, snowmobile and/or dog sledding were a great aid to a good night/s sleep. Highlights major and minor - in no particular order - were: 1. The food. Loads of it and delicious, including the packed lunches and special energy bars. (We burned a lot of calories). 2. Eating lunch around camp fires at wilderness shelters in a gentle snowfall. 3. My first time on skis. (We haven't laughed so much in ages). 4. Falling a lot. (Yes, I'm serious. I fell off everything - snow shoes, skis - level and downhill - snowmobile and dog sled), and once nearly ended up in a river, but only hurt myself a bit a couple of times.) 5. Dog sled day. A marvellous experience and enough to turn this dog-phobe into a husky fan. 6.The company of like-minded strangers to add to wife and two good friends. Lowlights: Not a thing, other than we didn't get the Northern Lights, but that's beyond the Basecamp's control, and I couldn't do everything. We'll have to go back! The rooms are of two types. The upper rooms are a bit bigger, have a small mezzanine for storage or to sleep in and a balcony. All heating and hot water comes from a wood pellet-burning boiler and a wood-burning fire in the lounge. All clothing and gear is provided to reduce luggage weight - a small detail ,but a nice idea - and almost all food provided sustainable and locally sourced.

A fabulous week in a wonderful place. We were lucky enough to have sunshine and clear skies, so good views of the Northern Lights several nights running. The accommodation is warm and cosy and the food almost too good!

A relaxing week spent in glorious Finland. If you like snow to feature in a holiday then you cannot beat Finland. The people are lovely, the venues calm and relaxing and the activities can be as full on as you want them to be. This trip can be very relaxing and had less guided walks than I had anticipated but you can participate in many optional extras or take as many unguided walks as you like. If that doesn't appeal then sit and relax by the fire and eat plentiful and delicious food.

Fabulous Finland

Where in the world can you snowshoe in a forest looking like it is peopled by snow trolls,eat by an open fire by a frozen lake or learn to distinguish otter tracks from elk.Our guide Marti showed us how to tell from strange indentations in the snow which direction an artic hare was hopping.We were in the most magical and remote wilderness I had ever seen.

Finland, snowshoeing - superb

This was my first holiday with Exodus, but I knew of the Company by reputation and word of mouth. I was not disappointed. From start to Finish (!) this was a well organised trip with people who knew what they were doing. The accommodation was excellent, the staff and leaders were very knowledgable and helpful and the other participants were great company. Food was wholesome, filling and tasty. The snowshoeing started with an easy and fun introduction and soon progressed to longer day outings in stunningly beautiful scenery. I've massive numbers of photos to show what a wonderful holiday this was.

Another fantastic Exodus trip. 7 great days at a very special location with a lovely group of people. I was a bit concerned about how I would cope with the very low temperatures but need not have worried because the gear provided keeps you warm and cosy. Snowshoeing is great fun and I would recommend this trip to anybody who loves being out in spectacular scenery.
