DEEP IN THE WILDS OF FINLAND
A week lasting summer package designed for those who want to do things the local way, connect with nature, experience the northern wilderness and get to participate in the most enjoyable and recreating outdoor activities with your local guide going with you for two days of hiking, two days of canoeing AND hiking, one day of fishing and one optional day in the end. Distance of the walks/canoe trips varies from 14-18 km / 6-7 h and they´re planned so that you will get to see different types of forests and changing habitats during these days.
By this tailor-made tour, you´ll truly get a glimpse of the way of life too as you will be visiting a private reindeer farm and see the newly born calves and their mothers close-by, you´re guided by a local person from the Hossa village and spend the first 4 nights at the rustic and off-grid Wilderness Lodge (detailed info here), truly enjoying the simple, Finnish cottage life.
Visiting the must see-natural wonders of the Hossa National Park area (the Colored Rock, Julma-Ölkky canyon), enjoying the traditional wood-heated sauna and tasting some local wild foods are integral parts of this trip.
Families, couples, groups of friends and individual passengers will all find this a nice combination of private comfort and spending time together as a group, because while there’s a daily group activity/dinner included, there´s still time to do your own thing and relax by yourself in your room if you wish. A certain level of physical condition is required for trip, here´s the itinerary in more detail.
