Nothing compares to the snow-covered landscape of Finland, with its breathtakingly beautiful scenery, amazing wildlife and of course, the Northern Lights.
Activities will include husky-sledding, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing as we push ourselves in this compelling environment. There's a sauna for you to enjoy back at the cabin as we relax and watch the Northern Lights dance their way beautifully across the night sky.
Day 1: London - Finland Fly into Kuusamo and transfer to our accomodation through these seemingly endless snow-covered landscapes.
Day 2: Cross-country skiing Learn the basics of one of the most popular winter hobbies in Finland. We'll then begin building quinzees – a type of igloo.
Day 3: Snowshoeing Follow routes through magical landscapes. We'll then finish our quinzees - anyone wanting to sleep in them overnight can do so. There’s even the opportunity to try ice swimming before hitting the sauna!
Day 4: Husky-Sledding The trail takes us through snow-white forests and frozen lakes. Later there's a chance to get up close with reindeer.
Day 5: Departure day Transfers and flight home.
