The wilderness ski expedition starts from Kilpisjärvi.
On the morning of the day 2, we sit down to talk about safety on the tour, skiing technique and camping safety and practices. After lunch, we start the ski tour with a short ski to our first campsite away from the village and and trails. We make the camp and practice the routines of winter camping.
Days 3-5 we ski in the wilderness area, away from any routes. We cross the Norwegian border at least once. The exact route plan will be made closer to the departure and it depends on weather forecast and snow conditions. We return to Kilpisjärvi on the afternoon of the day 5. After a sauna, we have a dinner together at our accommodation.
The terrain is mainly open tundra, so weather conditions can get challenging at times. The route is a moderate difficulty, except for the possible ascent to Halti and descent from the peak; those slopes are steep, but we will take plenty of time for it.
