FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Location was superb. Nice to see the Northern Lights even if not a full on display.  Staff - you could not have had better

What did you think of your group leader?

Henri - was superb, always happy and helpful, despite being very short staffed. He was an excellent instructor too.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

The Trip notes were spot on - you really do not need any Outdoor clothing - it is all supplied, down to base layer thermals, socks, gloves, hat, shoes - the lot. It was often minus 26 on my trip and apart from fingers occassionaly I was not cold.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Basecamp Oulanka does need some cosy seating for people to get together just for social times.  The food was very good, much better than my last trip to Finland. Nice to have coffee and tea available all day
