FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Well, it would have to be that 10km walk on the very first day we arrived, but really everyday was brilliant. With such a variety of activities happening it day, it really was an excellent way to explore in the deep snow- whilst of course spending a lot of time on your bottom!    

What did you think of your group leader?

The group leader was brilliant. Always happy and chatty and even spent evenings with us around the fire which was lovely. All the staff at Basecamp were excellent and were always there for you to answer any questions you might have. A very welcoming evnviroment

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Make sure you take a snood with you!! You will certainly need it. As well as thermals. They are provided but it is nice to have your own as well, so that you have an extra layer  Be yourself and enjoy every minute- in the evenings you will be able to enjoy the hot tub and sauna, so after a long day in the snow you can relax! 

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Book, book, book- don't delay! This is a great opportunity and something if you love exploring, being challenged and just meeting people whilst having fun!   Oh and make sure you love the cold! or can tolerate the cold because it really is a little nippy!!!
