Our Partners

Adventure by Design has been giving people unforgettable outdoor experiences in the north since 2012. Gareth, the owner of the company and a professional outdoor instructor from New Zealand, works closely with our guides to provide you a safe and fun experience in the Arctic. We take you out to the wilderness just around our home village Kilpisjärvi (only 140 people!).  Our trips vary from a couple of hours to multiday packages and can be tailored for everyone from three-generation family holidays to seasoned adventurers.

Gareth is a professional photographer; landscapes and black & white photography are his passions. He led his first northern lights photography tour in 2013 and has since taken both professionals and Instagrammers on photography tours. He passes his knowledge to our young guides who share this interest.

Adventure by Design is a local, Kilpisjärvi based company. We are proud to be able to provide quality experiences all year round for our customers, interns, and paid staff. Adventure by Design is registered in the Finnish register of package travel agencies and has lodged security against e.g. advance payments for travel. We pay VAT and other taxes in Finland.
