New for 2017!

This winter season we have added two new cross country ski packages to our line up of bespoke tours.

Designed for complete beginners, these 7 day tours will show why skiing is so popular in the Nordic countries.

Northern Lights in Kilpisjärvi

Hunting the northern lights? Expert local knowledge will ensure you are in the right place at the right time to catch the aurora.

Here to help.

Small group sizes mean you have more time with your guide to learn about the local environment, photography tips or even health and fitness advice.

Snowshoeing in Kilpisjärvi, Finland.

Adventure matters. We provide human powered tours which reconnect you with the natural environment. You won’t find any WIFI but you will get a better connection.

Adventure by Design has been working in Enontekiö since 2012, giving people unforgettable experiences outdoors. Your guide, a professional outdoors instructor from New Zealand, can teach you all that is needed for a safe and fun experience in the Arctic winter. We take you skiing and snowshoeing out to the wilderness just around the village where you stay. Our trips vary from a couple of hours to multiday packages, make sure you check them out in our website and book in time!

If photography is more your thing than wild adventures, Gareth is also a professional photographer. He has taken photographers from all around the world to the most magical places of Lapland. We also do small group northern lights trips, where both beginners and seasoned cameramen alike, can get the most out of this Arctic wonder.

We are based in Kilpisjärvi over the winter season but are available for tours throughout Finland.
