Arctic Ski Expedition
Explore the Arctic as you travel from hut-to-hut on nordic skis through the Käsivarsi wilderness, reaching the highest point in Finland. 5 days off work.
This trip is suitable for trekkers and hikers who want to challenge themselves in the Arctic conditions, are fit and have some experience skiing. Some past skiing or cross-country skiing experience is required as you will be in remote regions travelling on skis for 7 days. You will cover an average 20km/day, climbing no more than 600m. While there are downhill periods to look forward to, particularly on the way back, the decline is gradual, with no steep or technical sections.
Enjoy a full Arctic experience as you traverse the Arctic fells of Finland. This extremely remote route will see you navigating to the highest point in Finland (1324m) while seeing frozen waterfalls, wildlife and if you're lucky, the Northern Lights. The winter wilderness adventure includes:
- 6 days of off-track Nordic ski travel
- 7 nights of accommodation
- All meals, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner
