FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

Amazing scenery, great activities and a good group of people from diverse backgrounds made for an interesting and very enjoyable week. Staff were extremely helpful and accomodating throughout and the facilities at Basecamp Oulanka were comfortable and fit for purpose.

FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

Absolutely wonderful scenery - sparkling snow covered trees and permanent twilight give it a magical feel. The activities were a lot of fun even at minus thirty and good clothing and equipment is all provided. It's certainly laid back and anyone can have a go at most things if they don't mind falling over a few times. There is plenty of free time on this trip, so make the most of the sauna, the mini hot tub and the (costly) optional activities or come prepared with uno and a good book. The cabins have brilliant underfloor heating, the food is tasty and plentiful (lunch is €11 extra each day) and the team is very friendly.

FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

the ice climbing on site should be inclusive. charging a euro to flavour your hot water in the flask seemed a bit petty . easy chairs to relax and socialise in after meals would be really good .

FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

It was a week of beautiful scenery, good company and experiencing the wonders of winter activities.  This was my first winter holiday, and although slighly nervous about some of the activities as I had never done them before, the experience was not a disappointment and was something I would recommend to anyone.

FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

The Finish Winter Activities Holiday is better value for money for all activities, most of which are included and for longer periods of time.Basecamp Ouklanka in beautiful location with excellent staff, accomodation and food. Nice to have Ruka close by for Downhill skiing

Snow, Sauna, Cider and Cold Toes! What a Holiday!

I keep telling everyone that I really enjoyed my Finnish Wilderness Weekend, that's exactly how long it felt like! It was a really great holiday and it just went so fast. It was amazing to be the first ones there at the start of the season so that all the snow is pristine and untouched. The setting is amazing and you just couldn't ask for more.

FINNISH WINTER ACTIVITIES

This was simply one of the most magical and memorable holidays I have been on! Every element from the guides/leaders, the lessons, the food, the scenery, accommodation and the activities was superb - I could fault nothing and hope to return in the future. I really didn't want to come home!

FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

Overall a good experience though I think more could be made of it. There was quite a lot of free time and the activities were more or less an introduction without too much depth. I was expecting to learn a little more about the Finnish culture, especially as we were staying over Xmas. Also on the trip to Ruka ski slopes it would be good if a longer option for ski class was included. 1hr 40 mins was just enough to get me reaquainted and up on my feet and with only one novice slope in the resort it was a challenging day.
