Mixed activity week in a remote part of Finland

This adventure is a chance to relax and explore the Finnish wilderness.  Basecamp Oulanka since in the heart of Oulanka National Park and is a truly remarkable location.

You’ll stay in a self-sustained complex of wooden buildings – the only structures for miles around. Spend the week taking advantage of a variety of winter activities where you’ll hardly ever see another soul. It’s a perfect way to remove yourself from the business of city life.

Spend a half day dog sledding in Riisitunturi National Park.  This day also includes optional ice climbing. Enjoy a snowmobile safari, downhill skiing, quinzee building and fire making training, cross country skiing around Juuma lake, and more.  There will also be plenty of time to explore the towns of Ruka and Kuusamo.

Basecamp Oulanka takes its inspiration from its wilderness surroundings. It is complete with a restaurant and bar, log fire, outdoor hot tub, and sauna. It’s the perfect way to end a day of activity.  Relax by the fire and enjoy great company in this remote and peaceful setting.

Tour operator

If you’re looking for a company with experience you can’t beat these guys. This operator started life in February 1974 when two friends got together to provide an overland truck to travel to the Minaret of Jam, deep in the heart of the Hindu Kush, the most inaccessible of the world’s great monuments.

For the company, and people who work for them “it’s all about adventure” which is what they were founded on and what they are still about today. Their trips take place all around the world where they help travelers to delve into local traditions, cultures, cuisine, lifestyles – anything that contributes to a country’ unique identity.

We love that their groups and guides travel courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimise the impact, to ensure that every holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved.

A most helpful, friendly and knowledgeable travel company!

Very helpful and provided lots of research material and excellent personal perspectives on the tall ship sailing trip I was interested in taking.
