Expedition

  • Experiencing a very different culture

    Finnish culture is intertwined with many traditions, and the team can get used life in this cold climate by immersing themselves into activities that this country is known for. Enjoy delicious meals that have been cooked on an open fire and spend time relaxing in the traditional Finnish saunas - a great way to experience the laid-back lifestyle of this nation.

  • Explore a new landscape

    Walking in snowshoes is an unforgettable experience that shouldn’t be missed when in Finland. Embark on trails that take you around frozen lakes and through the pristine forests. Cross country skiing is one of the national sports of Finland and is a popular pastime for the locals. The teams will join in and learn to cross-country ski, testing their new skills as they ski through the beautiful snow-covered pine and spruce and birch forests.

  • Learning something new

    Get to grips with your new surroundings and learn some winter survival skills. Try your hand at orienteering in the snow and learn to winter fish through a hole in the ice, which is a truly unique activity. Igloos are iconic in rural winter environments and building one as a team is a fantastic winter activity. Build a fire in the wilderness for you all to sit around - there is no better way to warm up!

  • Encounter the wildlife

    Finnish forests are home to many animals such as elks, wolverines and hares - and whilst they are seldom seen, there is always an opportunity to learn about the wildlife that inhabits your surroundings on your snowshoe hikes and cross-country skiing. Take a winter walk to the nearby reindeer farm and learn about the famed animals in this country - top off your visit with a reindeer sleigh ride, a magical experience that you will not forget!

What to expect

  • Terrain

    Forests, lakes and arctic tundra provide an abundance of unique and exciting options for exploring.

  • Culture

    Finland maintains a strong link with its traditional folklore, with food, costume and folk music all notable influences of their culture.

  • Weather

    In the winter months much of Finland’s wilderness is covered in a blanket of snow. With temperatures often below freezing, remember to pack your warm clothes when visiting this spectacular country.
