The Highlights of Your Trekking Adventure:

Day 1: Welcome to Finnish Lapland for a beautiful adventure in one of the oldest and most picturesque national parks in Finland ! We meet at Kittilä airport. Then we drive you to our cottage located on the banks of the Ounas River. After installation we give you a presentation of the coming adventure and we prepare for it. A diner made with local products follows. And we end the first day with a sauna time and swimming in the river.

Day 2: First we drive about 40 mn to reach the Southern part of the long trail we are gonna hike. The trek starts with a strenuous climb which step by step unveils beautiful landscapes. The trails goes on the ridge of a rocky fell and then goes down to a lake where a wilderness cabin wait for us. We spend the first night there.

Day 3:  This third day takes us into the forest and swampy areas. At the end of the day we get to a small promontory where the ancient Sami people had their religious traditions. This is where we set up our bivouac near a cute Lapp hut in which we gladly gather for diner and fellowship.

Day 4: Another historic site is on our path. We stop at an old watermill and enjoy the sound of the small rapids nearby. After another short climb. we find our spot for the night, in the heart of the forest.

Day 5: We pass the first and only village of our trekking adventure and then enter in a secluded area. At the foot of a mountain -that we could climb for those who are willing- a small lake and a cabin far from any civilization are the perfect rest spot after already more than 50 km covered.

Day 6: We have hiked about half of the adventure. We treat ourselves with a night in a mountain hotel and a meal at a restaurant. You could also visit the Nature Center of the park and have a time at the sauna to relax your muscles and back. A radically different environment surrounds you now. After five days through the forest and mires we are about to hike in a treeless area and much more mountainous. This is what makes this adventure so special!

Day 7: This stage goes up and down given you spectacular views from the top of the fells over the highlands and lakes around.  The warm shades of Autumn all around the hills contrasting with the blue of the lakes give one of the most beautiful landscapes you could see in Lapland at that time of the year. We end the day at a mountain cabin ideally situated to observe the Northern lights if the weather allows it. 

Day 8First we pass the tiniest and oldest wilderness cabin of the park. The beautiful deserted fells keep surrounding us until we get back to a small forested area where a wilderness sauna and a pond are waiting to give you a unique experience of what trekking is all about. 

Day 9The hills are lower. We enter into an amazing open and deserted space. This is a stage on a pretty flat terrain. The running waters of creeks, a small lake, the presence of the reindeer transport you into a very Scandinavian atmosphere. Once again we spend the night in a comfortable mountain cabin.

Day 10: We open up the day with hiking up to the top of the last fell of our adventure. Spectacular views over the whole region of Northern Lapland give a great conclusion to our adventure. Our trip ends with a short boat ride taking us to the village of Hetta. We drive back to our cottage and then we go to Levi where we spend a good relaxing time at the spa. We take a delicious diner in town before heading back to the cottage.

Day 11: After breakfast we prepare for departure. Transportation to Kittilä airport. Thank you and see you soon!

The Highlights of Your Trekking Adventure:

Day 1: Welcome to the Finnish Lapland! We meet at Kittilä airport. Then we drive you to our cottage located in a village on countryside and nearby the waters of a beautiful river. We give you a presentation of the adventure and we prepare for it. Then we cook a delicious diner made with local products. We end this first day with swimming in the river (for the most courageous ones) and sauna.

Day 2: Our day starts with a 45 mn drive on a country road to get to the starting point of the adventure. The first five kilometers of the adventure are in a luminous forest of pine trees and along the crystal clear waters of two small lakes. We take a break at a kota, traditional hut of Lapland, in front of a pristine lake. Then we leave that forested area to get into a desert like place with great views over the forest. We spend the night in a mountain cabin on a plateau and treat ourselves with a wilderness sauna session. We won't forget to watch the sky hoping to see the Northern lights!

Day 3: This stage goes on a pretty flat land through amazing open spaces and under a big sky. This is the home of many reindeer. We take a break and eat our lunch by a small lake near at the foot of the hill. You will enjoy your stay for the night at a comfortable mountain cabin built in a traditional reindeer husbandry territory. 

Day 4: After few kilometers over the hills and a stop at a small cabin we hike the final 12 kilometers deep in a beautiful natural state forest sometimes bordered by mires. The silence of it will amaze you. Back to the valley we drive back to the cottage and go out eating diner in Levi Ski Resort where we will give you a tour. Another sauna session is scheduled and maybe a Northern lights hunting night in the region.

Day 5: After breakfast we transport you to Kittilä airport. Depending on the schedule of your flight we take you to the top of Levi Mountain. Thank you and see you soon!
