Cross-country skiing holiday in Finland's eastern wilderness

This week-long fully guided, cross country skiing holiday in Finland takes you up to the wild far reaches of NE Finland. Following sections of an established cross country trail at times, and trails carved out especially for us by snowmobile at others, we stay in comfortable and welcoming private guesthouses along the way. That enables us to get up in the morning and straight out into pristine snow covered forest, across stunning frozen lakes and through crispy white wetland. We hardly meet any other skier on these trails, although we will keep an eye out for animals that enjoy these habitats, seeking out wolverine and elk tracks as we go. With luck, you will also have a chance to see ...Read more >

Finland activity holiday and Northern Lights
