FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
There were so many moments i will never forget.....Snoe shoeing, forest frisbee in snow shoes for the first time, tree hugging!, Husky sledging through wilderness that can only be described as indescribable, and coming off head first into a snow filled ditch, ice climbing, cross country skiing and learning to go uphill on skis, snowmobiling and hitting 95kpm accross a frozen lake, The ice bar in Ruka, sledging, tobogganing, kick sledge races, downhill skiing lessons, walking the little bear trail without getting lost, rolling in the snow in nothing but a swimsuit, building an igloo and nearly staying the whole night! Watching an amazing arctic sunset at 2 in the afternoon, and..... the icing on the cake.....Nearly 2 hours of The Aurora Borealis on the flight home...SPECTACULAR!
What did you think of your group leader?
Henri was amazing, so friendly and knowledgable. Henri and Hanna made the trip, and basecamp became a place that i never wanted to leave (except to have more fun of course)!
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
BOOK IT NOW! There isnt anything about this trip that i would change or complain about...it was PERFECT!!!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
This is a trip of a lifetime and should not be missed by anyone who has a spirit of adventure, a love of the great outdoors and doesnt mind the cold!
