Finnish Wilderness Week

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Stepping outside the main cabin after dinner to watch the northern lights directly above our heads for the next 2 hours! Racing through the sunlit snow behind a team of wonderful huskies! Sleeping out in our very own Quincee, warm as toast in a -12 starlit night! Cooking our reindeer sausages over a campfire in the forest.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our guide was Juuka. Very funny, gentle, thoughtful and caring. He had a vast amount of knowledge and skill in the outdoors and made every session special! We understand that he is relatively new in the job but he seemed very confident and had a natural ability to include everyone and bring humour to all situations!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

The Basecamp kit that is loaned to you is very good and we did not need any of our own apart from under garments. We had very little need for many of our evening clothes and little need for cash as everything could be put on our bill. Go for the optional lunches......they were excellent and plenty of it!
