Basecamp Oulanka is our wilderness camp for Finland mixed-activity trips, and its lovely complex of wooden buildings provides comfortable and cosy accommodation in a stunning location. Overlooking a lake and backing on to the Oulanka National Park, here you’ll feel the call of the beautiful Finnish wilderness and breathe crisp, fresh air in a vast forest landscape punctuated with ice-blue lakes.
Based at Oulanka Base Camp within Oulanka National Park we were able to participate in a number of Finnish wilderness activities from Snow shoe hikes, cross-country skiing, dog sledding, driving a skidoo on a snowmobile safari and building a Quinzee(igloo) and being amazed on two evenings watching the spectacular northern lights. Our lodge was very comfortable and warm with a balcony offering fantastic views of snow covered spruce trees and the frozen Juuma lake. The food in the restaurant was delicious and plentiful all sourced locally and prepared by a chef.
