Finland’s vast tracts of Arctic tundra, lake and forest are cloaked beneath an all-enveloping layer of snow and ice for seven months of the year but, with the first spring thaws, they’re relieved of their white shroud and the landscape positively springs back to life. Wildflowers carpet the meadows, salmon leap up the river and - in mid-summer - the sun simply refuses to set. You’ll enjoy paddling on the sparkling lakes, rafting on the waters of the River Kitka, swimming in the clear spring water and even an optional brown bear watching trip. Oulanka is always a popular winter family destination, now we are offering the chance to experience it during summer!Our wilderness base is located at the edge of Oulanka National Park in a truly spectacular setting, perfect for outdoor adventures and enjoy exciting activities together, throw in a daily sauna and...this is the life!
The bikes were of highest quality, well maintained and in good condition.
Mechanic, Li, was an excellent cyclist, always there to give a "tow" when required.”
