Bivouac Adventures

Finland is a nature paradise open to everyone. Some of you may not have the capacities or the interest to go on long adventures such as treks, day hikes, or packrafting trips with many kilometers to cover. However you do love nature and have the deep desire to live the spirit of adventure. Good news! We have the perfect program for you in any season. Find out more about it below.

 

Our unique bivouac adventures are a short distance hike to reach a beautiful spot in the nature of Lapland where we set up a camp for one or two nights. At the camp you can fully enjoy in a flexible schedule many different types of outdoor activities: outdoor cooking, exploring, making fire, swimming, sauna, Northern lights watching (in Fall and Winter), and simply relaxing.

THE EXPERIENCE TO LIVE: The forests of the Far North are a treasure and the favorite place to be for the locals. It might become yours as well! Set up your tent in the middle of nowhere completely surrounded by a forest of pine trees, spruces. and birch trees. Feel and smell that carpet of mosses, lichens and berry shrubs as the ground of our camp site. If you're interested that we all stay the night in one place request from us that we take our special "kota tent" and its stove that will keep us warm in case of cold days. In Finland a lake is never far. Get all the health benefits of swimming in pristine and refreshing waters. Let's gather the wood that we need to cook on fire and to simply enjoy the fellowship of being all together around it as the day is dawning. Open your eyes and ears, reindeer and Siberian jays might come to surprise you.

THE EXPERIENCE TO LIVE: What would you say to have a bivouac that includes also a short packrafting trip which takes you over to the other side of a lake where there's a small and remote beach!? Definitely this will give you the taste for adventure and the joy of the simple things of life in a wilderness environment. On the first day early in the morning we meet and have a 1h15 drive to the starting point of our adventure. You receive a rucksack including a sleeping bag and pad, various items for wilderness camping, and an ultralight but strong inflatable raft and its accessories. Then we hit the trail for a 3 km hike through a luminous forest of pine trees planted in a sandy soil. Arrived to the lake we unpack our rafts and extend our trip with about 1 km  on the pristine waters which sometimes amazingly look emerald and turquoise. The beach is hidden between a wooden cliff and an peninsula. We set up our camp in the forest right in front of the shore. Then it's all about living the life in the wilderness: gathering around a bonfire on the beach, swimming in the fresh and clear waters, taking walks to explore around, paddling to visit couple of tiny islands nearby, relaxing in the quietness of nature, and getting new skills of life in the wilderness.
