This Lapland winter outdoor holiday is a supreme mix of activities, with all the spices. Every morning we pack the bags with a lunch box, hot drinks and recharged cameras, and head out to the wild. Your guide will take you past the must-see sights, but also to his own favourite locations out of the way of marked routes. You will not need any previous experience on winter outdoor activities, your guide will teach you the technique and modify the daily routes according to your skill level.

We visit locations in Finland and Norway. The activities take place in open arctic tundra and Norwegian fjords, and as a special bonus, we can search for wolverine and lynx prints in the snow, and relax in a sauna at night. In April we might be able to admire some glacier meltwater waterfalls on the Norwegian fjords.

In April, the weather is often pleasantly warm and sunny.

Your guide is an experienced wilderness and outdoors guide.
