About the tour: This is a concentrate of adventure and Finnish Lapland in just two days! You get to go trekking or snowshoeing, experience simple life at a traditional cabin, see the Northern lights if the forecasts are good, and immerse yourself in the wilderness of Lapland! So here how it goes. The guide picks you up at your place in the morning on the first day. He provides you in everything you need for these two days adventure. Then we have about a 1 hour road trip to get to the starting line of the trek. In Winter we equip ourselves with snowshoes. In September and October we usually don't need them. For this trek everyone carries his own backpack but in Winter the guide accepts sometimes to have one more in his sledge if that helps. Often in the heart of Winter our first trekking day ends under a starry sky and in the moonlight. If it's too dark we use headlamps which makes the journey even more adventurous! Later we arrive at the log cabin where we will stay for the night. Located in the forest or on the top of the fells you get the feeling of being in middle of nowhere in a quiet world. The guide starts a fire in the stove and light up the candles. The dinner is prepared. After meal we prepare ourselves for the night. We have this opportunity to spend the whole night watching the green auroras. Depending on the intensity of the auroras you get to alternate some true peaceful moments by the fireplace inside the cabin and active moments outside watching the dance of the auroras over the forest or the top of the fells. Moreover the guide shares with you some amazing facts about the natural phenomena, assists you in taking pictures, or/and share his own pictures with you afterwards. After a short night we wake up for a new day. A breakfast is served. Then we get ready to have our second day of trekking and exploring the beautiful Lappish wilderness. We get back to the vehicle and drive back to your place. This program ends in the afternoon.
