Trip to the Arctic Ocean in Norway (From €55):

A one-day bus tour during which you’ll not only experience breathtaking landscapes, walk on the shores of the Arctic Ocean and even swim in it, but you’ll also meet and learn about the indigenous peoples who’ve lived in this cold and inhospitable region for thousands of years – the Sámi (Lapp) people and the Finnish Kven’s in the fishing village of Bugøynes. You’ll also get the chance to taste traditional fish soup in a local restaurant. The 550-kilometre tour takes around 8 hours. A definite must-do for your bucket list!

Cross Country Skiing + SPA (From €40):

Apart from being Finland’s national sport, cross-country skiing is also a lot of fun. Our guides will prime you in the basic skiing techniques, and then you’ll be off, striding and gliding through amazing scenery along the best cross-country ski trails in the world – the very same trails that famous professional skiers come all the way to Finland to practice on! The program finishes with a tasty traditional Finnish soup lunch, after which we recommend a visit to Saariselkä spa for a relaxing sauna and jacuzzi! Feel like a real Finn!

Nighttime snowshoe trip (From €39):

On snowshoes, in the wilderness, with the help of a map and clues from your guide, each team attempts to be first to find the treasure hidden deep within the forest!

Snowmobiles are one of the most convenient ways of getting around beyond the Arctic Circle. The locals use them to go to the grocery store or to visit friends on the other side of the hill.

Our snowmobiles are two-seaters, which means that both of you will have the chance to drive for about 45 minutes.
