Our Partners

Adventure by Design has been working in the arctic Lapland since 2012, giving people unforgettable experiences outdoors. Your guide Gareth, a professional outdoors instructor from New Zealand, can teach you all that is needed for a safe and fun experience in the Arctic. We take you 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 and Finland. We also do small group northern lights trips, where both beginners and seasoned cameramen alike, can get the most out of this Arctic wonder.

Most of our tours are based in Kilpisjärvi, Finland and Lyngenfjord, Norway. However, we do tours throughout Finland, and in the early summer you are most likely going to find us at the Finnish archipelago.
