The Finnish Wilderness Week tour starts from and ends in Basecamp Oulanka. It is a winter adventures trip that takes 8 days taking you through Riisitunturi National Park, Oulanka National Park and Basecamp Oulanka in Finland. Finnish Wilderness Week is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

In the heart of Oulanka National Park sits Basecamp Oulanka, a self-sustained complex of wooden buildings in a truly stunning location. In one of the most sparsely populated areas in Europe, you are able to enjoy a variety of winter activities in this beautiful landscape and hardly ever see another soul. Dogsledding through the silent snow-caked forests, you couldn’t feel more removed from the hustle and bustle of city life. Get back to nature this winter and head to Basecamp.

“The staff, equipment, accomodations, location, food, and activities were outstanding. I loved staying, dogsledding and snowshoeing in pristine, gorgeous, magical suroundings. There were plenty of activities to do/try as a group or on my own with new found friends. All the winter clothing and equipment available made the trip particularly stress free and easy to pack for.
I loved every minute of this trip and highly recommend it!”
