The Highlights of Your Inn-based Adventure:

 

Day 1: Welcome to Finland! We meet at the international airport of Kittilä. Immediately we hit the road and go towards the highlands of Lapland. Our two and half hours drive take you on those long roads lined with tall spruces, through lands of wilderness, along wide rivers and finally to the rocky mountains of Northern Lapland. We arrive at our chalet and enjoy the cosy atmosphere of lodging in an authentic Scandinavian wooden building. After setting up our own stuff we eat a special diner around the fireplace in the hut. We end this first day with a sauna session.

Day 2We invite you to look at the first picture of the diaporama right above this information sheet! This is where we want to lead you for our first hiking tour. The trail is steep but not too difficult and definitely worth it. On the top of the fell a majestic view unveils before your eyes: the white summits of Norway and Sweden, the wilderness of the Nature Reserve, a beautiful lake. 

Day 3For this second full day hiking tour we start with a beautiful boat trip on a lake. Thirty minutes later we reach the place of where the three Nordic countries share a common landmark with the beautiful Norwegian mountains in the background. The rest of our tour takes us in the highs of the Nature Reserve where the reindeer gracefully wander. With a permanent aerial view on Kilpis Lake we hike on a rocky terrain, pass a beautiful waterfall and  have a break at the Small Malla summit. From there we wonder at the immensity of Lapland.

Day 4: The third hiking tour is an excursion on the trail towards the highest summit of Finland. You will love the many creeks and the wild untouched nature of the area. We eat lunch in a small wilderness cabin by a lake.

Day 5For the last tour of the adventure we outbound to Norway. Before getting to the starting point of our hike no doubt that you will feel the excitement of the drive along the fjords and the high cliffs of the area. We begin with few easy kilometers along a powerful torrent but quickly the trail goes up and takes us on the high plateau of Barras Mountain. This is a world of waterfalls, alpine summits and even glaciers in the distance. Depending on the pace of the group we will eat lunch at the mountain cabin of Gappo.

The Highlights of Your Inn-based Adventure:

Day 1: Welcome to the magical Lapland in Northern Finland! We meet at the international airport of Kittilä. Then we drive you to our cottage located in the village of Tepasto. In a peaceful country atmosphere you get to enjoy from the balcony the view on the frozen river and the mountains of Pallas National Park. We welcome you with a sauna session while a typical diner is prepared. 

Day 2: For our very first snowshoes hiking tour we take you to a birds watching tower. In a deep snow we go through the forests of spruces and birches, experience solitude as we cross treeless areas, and wander over the frozen wetlands of Latva. We share a picnic lunch at the top of the tower. From there you can wonder at the view on a lake and the mountains of Ylläs National Park in the distance. After this 6 km tour we go back to the cottage and relax our bodies at the sauna. After diner and depending on the forecast we prepare ourselves for a Northern lights hunting trip.

Day 3: This is our second full day hiking tour. This time we go snowshoeing on the top of the Aakenus Moutain which can give you the feeling of exploring the Arctic Pole. After a strenuous climb we go down and hide ourselves in the forest where a rustic and small cabin is waiting for us. We light up few candles, make fire in the fire place and sit down by it to eat our lunch. Later in the day we go back to the cottage and have sauna. After diner and depending on the forecast we prepare ourselves for another Northern lights hunting trip.

Day 4The third hiking tour is a cross-country skiing trip to Tammi log cabin. On a very quiet and snowy country path and though the wild plains of the park we reach another cabin in a very remote area. We eat our lunch there. On our way back we go up and explore Haavepalo Hill. You will love the wide view over the snowy taiga; maybe you will also have the privilege to see the "Blue Moment" creating an amazing contrast between the earth and the sky. After our tour we have a special time at the spa in Levi Ski Resort. For an unlimited time you get to relax your muscles in saunas, Turkish baths, jacuzzis and other pools. 

Day 5: For the last hiking tour of your stay in Lapland we embark in an adventure around Pyhä Lake. All surrounded by the hills and the forest you get to walk over the frozen waters of the lake to reach a typical Lappish hut built on the shore. Inside we make a fire and grill our food for lunch. Later in the afternoon we give you some free time to visit Levi Ski Resort and do some shopping. We end the trip with a diner at a restaurant and a final sauna session at the cottage. 

Day 6: After breakfast we prepare for the departure. Before taking you back to Kittilä airport we have a stop on the top of Levi Mountain. Thank you and see you soon for another adventure!
