FINNISH WILDERNESS WEEK

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

 I loved it all but personal thrills were ski-ing for the first time on fresh snow and spending a day on snowmobiles going up to a spectacular viewpoint and homely cafe enroute. After a day of wilderness skills and the creation of a cosy igloo we ate and cooked pancakes over a fire in the forest - perfect!  Not forgetting that roll in the snow after the sauna and hot tub....

What did you think of your group leader?

No Exodus leader for this trip. The local guides were exceptional.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Take your own thermal underwear and socks and something to cover your face and neck. Also you might find a large towel useful. Games for the evenings are good too. The only seating is around tables on hard dining chairs.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Just go for it. Try everything. The more you do the more you enjoy.
