"The ultimate of the adventure spirit in the Far North in Winter is wilderness camping. This program takes you deep into the fascinating silent white world of Lapland. We start with a short snowshoeing or backcountry skiing trip while we pull Arctic sleds loaded with all the gear we need. On site, we are altogether set on an active mode as it is the best way to stay warm and happy. This is also a wonderful opportunity to develop some skills such as preparing the ground to put up the tent, chopping wood and lighting a fire in the stove, cooking, and making our place as cozy as possible. Besides these tasks, we cannot miss the privilege of being in nature. We take some time to explore the forest or the fells around, observe the wildlife, and hopefully watch the Northern lights illuminating the polar night. For 74 euros extra, we can take with us the sauna tent and have an unforgettable session in the wilderness."
