Finnish Wilderness Week

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

This is hard to pin point to one thing but the husky ride through a stunning slow clad wilderness in the bright sunshine followed by the Northern Lights that same night were amazing. Also we enjoyed the challenge of quinzee building and witnessed Martii turning into a human mole as he helped us burrow into our snow castle! The last night's meal was also a highlight as we ventured outside for the final supper...

What did you think of your group leader?

Helpful, knowledgeable and very encouraging, he kept us all safe and amused.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

We packed far too many clothes as all of the out doors gear is provided for you. Take a kettle for the room if you like a cuppa in the morning and a hairdryer too.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

We couldn't all go on the additional cost trips which were subject to restriction in numbers and although Martii tried to arrange other dates, it would have meant missing other activities provided on the itinerary and sometimes a greater cost due to fewer numbers going.
