Dogsledding at Basecamp Oulanka Reviewed Tour: Dogsledding in Oulanka National Park
5 - Excellent
“This holiday was a wonderful experience, one of the best we have had and one that we plan on doing again next year. Having stayed at Basecamp Oulanka last year on the snowshoeing holiday, also a great trip, we wanted to return there again as we could find no faults with the place. The staff are always so willing and helpful, the accommodation is great, the food is Finnish and of a very high standard and the range of activities offered make for a fantastically varied and full week. Having experienced one day of dogsledding last year we couldn't wait to return for a week's worth of it. We did and we were not disappointed. Sledding through the countryside, which was like a scene from a Winter wonderland, hearing nothing but the hiss of the sled runners on the snow is a very moving and wonderful experience as is the thrill of traveling at speed through the forests or over the frozen lakes by 5 huskies. The quietness contrasting with the excitement and noise of the dogs as they are harnessed and straining to be on their way because they really do want to run, it's stopping them that is the problem. You still though have the opportunity to do other things as well so you can go for a walk in the woods, cross country skiing, relax in the inevitable sauna or hot tub or simply sit and read whilst having a pint. We experienced a whole range of weather, from stunningly clear days to a day when we crossed a frozen lake in a blizzard, in the dark at a temperature below -20C, both extremes beautiful in their own ways. The welcome that we received at Olilla, the camp you go to on your 3 day expedition, was equally friendly and welcoming with the owners, as well as providing wonderful food always joined us for 'apres sled' drinks and a chat.”

“A great trip into the wilderness with an inspirational guide, tough cycling at times but lots of fun.”
Fatbiking..... for robust cyclists! Reviewed Tour: Fat biking in Finland
3 - Average
“This new trip looks fantastic but beware that some of the information in the trip notes isn't as clear as it should be and contains some inaccuracies. The activity level (moderate/challenging) is definitely understated and doesn't reflect the significantly increased difficulty when milder weather conditions cause the tracks to deteriorate. If you are not lucky enough to have the optimum weather conditions, be prepared for multiple spectacular tumbles and plenty of bike pushing.”
Good, but still a work in progress Reviewed Tour: Fat biking in Finland
4 - Very Good
“A good trip overall, with the potential to be great. There are a number of things which still need to be ironed out though. The cycling is, as mentioned on other reviews, harder than the trip notes and grade suggest. If you're not comfortable on a mountain bike off road then you wont enjoy this. The accommodation is basic, especially at the Russian end where you'll be sleeping in the same room as other people on the trip (so bring earplugs!) Other than that - a great experience of the region and lifestyle”
Lots of spills, thrills, and the Northern Lights Reviewed Tour: Fat biking in Finland
4 - Very Good
“It is hard to rate this trip as I think it is MUCH harder than the Moderate/Challenging grading and the trip notes imply – I would not have booked it had I realised I would be doing quite so much falling off and pushing. We had fresh soft snow and relatively mild temperatures that made the cycling technical and at times both emotionally and physically draining as you are learning a new skill. If you have a better idea of what to expect, it has all the hallmarks of a fabulous trip in the wilderness with an excellent leader. There were some lows but also some highs that will stay with me long after the bruises have faded.”

“This has to be one of the best Exodus trips I have done! The staff, food, accommodation and bikes were perfect, and the sheer beauty of the Oulanka National Park is breath taking.”
Wilderness Adventure on a fat bike. Reviewed Tour: Fat biking in Finland

“If you're considering doing this trip - do it! I loved every moment, the scenery was stunning, my trip companions were lovely, the biking was awesome, the food superb, the organisation top notch and the accommodation was perfect. Anymore superlatives?! We had perfect weather - cold, dry and sunny with clear skies which definitely helped to make this such a wonderful week.”
Fun, Scenery, Saunas and Northern Lights too Reviewed Tour: Fat biking in Finland
5 - Excellent
“the most fun I have had in the snow with my clothes on. Accommodation was great, the log cabin at the Russian end was amazing. Having to cut a hole in the frozen river to get water for the sauna - and what a great sauna that was - all added to the experience. Fatbiking in the snow was a new skill set, never fully mastered, and I lost count of the times I put my foot down for safety only to sink into two foot of snow. Henry was a great tour guide and was definitley part of the holiday. A great group of people having a great time. And the Northern Lights are amazing”
