Fantastic Wilderness Week
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Without a doubt the full day husky sledding with Lauri and the snowmobile safari. But we thoroughly enjoyed the other activities also like the reindeer farm, the night walk, the barbecues and the wilderness training.
What did you think of your group leader?
Our group leader Henri was outstanding. His patience, his commitment and his enthusiasm were second to none. His English was also first class.He mixed with every member in the group, and couldn't do enough for you.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Read the trip notes and the reviews. They cover everything. There REALLY is no need to bring your own equipment, as the equipment provided at Oulanka is of excellent quality., and comes in all sizes. From snow boots, to suits, thermals, gloves, mittens rucksacks etc etc I read the trip notes, but still brought some of my own stuff ,just in case I would need them, and .... I didn't need any! The only thing I would bring is your own base layers, and a hat. A hair-dryer is also handy to bring, as is a small travel kettle if you like a hot drink in your room in the evening or early in the morning.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Simply a wonderful holiday and a great introduction to different winter activities. You can be a total novice and have a fabulous time. It is so well organized and the food is just great. No negatives to report. It is the type of holiday that I would like to do again.
