Custom tours designed for you

We are a small company with a big love for outdoors, great experience and adventure.

Whether you are looking for a city photography tour, driving through Finland, or hiking in the remote wilderness, we’d love to plan your custom holiday with you.

Here’s the deal:

We spend time with you to make sure we know what you really want to experience. Every custom tour is made from scratch, together with you. To get you started, here are some ideas.

Travelling with children?

Not to worry. We are an outdoors adventure company with lots of fun activities for bigger kids and adults. However, we believe the nature is the grand playground and we’d be happy to tailor your holiday to suit your kids. Leave those iPads at home and come to spend some old fashioned time together.

Want to know the best part?

We work in Finland, northern Norway and Sweden; always with companies which share our values of respecting and promoting local, sustainable and adventurous tourism.

Our tailor made holiday package is a stress-free way to travel – your guide is there to answer any questions, drive and guide you around and make sure everything runs smoothly, from airport to airport.
