7 days - A true wilderness adventure in Finland with husky sledding and snowmobiling

This remarkable and memorable experience will take you into the wildest corner of Finnish Lapland and offers up some incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experiences. This tour combines a 3 day snowmobile adventure with a 2 day husky safari and travels between three different mountain areas. Accommodation is in log cabins, apartments and wilderness huts with saunas, friendly company and a warm meal each night.

The route on this epic journey will lead you to Kilpisjärvi – a mystical and remote region steeped in Sámi tradition and folklore which offers breathtaking views of frozen lakes and snow-covered mountain peaks. There can be few experiences in life which can compare to this.
