I had an excellent time during the Finnish Wilderness Week
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Being outside in such a stunning location! Husky sledding was particularly memorable though as was the optional long snowshoe offered on the Saturday.
What did you think of your group leader?
Our group leader was Henri Suopanki who was brilliant. He is a great tour leader who is a good instructor across all activities. He is patient and helpful when instructing and with any other queries. He also mixes a good cocktail! All the staff at Basecamp Oulanka were great and this is one of the best places I've ever stayed.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Take a book or small board game for the evening. When I went the days started getting dark at 3pm so a lot of time was spent in front of the open fire in the main lodge. There are a couple of board games available but I'd advise bringing a little entertainment of your own.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
It was a great week and a good starting point for someone who would like to try a rage of winter activities to see if they would like to develop any particular sports further or go on any other winter holidays.
