The 2019 test tour has been completed and the full route will be open for bookings this July.

Our popular trekking adventures have already been running for several years, and it is time to open new hiking routes for the next years. Our lead guide and owner of Adventure by Design, Gareth Hutton will be exploring new hiking routes at the end of June and you have the rare opportunity to join him for an adventure.

If you’re interested in joining this adventure hiking, send us an email to with subject “test group”.  It’s good if you have some previous experience on hiking, but you don’t need to be an expert.

We will take up to 6 people to join Gareth in June for a 5 days trek around our region, starting from Kilpisjärvi, Finland and traversing via Norway. Accommodation is in tents which we provide. Unfortunately, we can’t give you more details yet, but send us a mail, and we’ll talk more.

Participants in summer 2019 get a 50% discount on the tour price, in exchange you’ll agree to give Gareth feedback on the route and allow us to use the photos of the tour on our marketing. Of course, you’ll get copies of those photos too!
