SNOWSHOEING IN FINLAND
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Dog sledging was a real joy and snow shoeing through Riisitunturi National Park was quite literally out of this world. Spending the night sleeping out in an igloo was a real challenge but certainly worth the effort.
What did you think of your group leader?
Eki (Erkki Ollila) was a real gem. His enthusiasm for his local area was contagious - he found something "new" around every corner. A great guide who really brought the day's excursions to life for us.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Evenings are long in basecamp which as yet does not have a lounge area. Time is spent sitting on hard, wooden chairs - not very relaxing. This was the only downside to this trip - don't let it put you off but be prepared. Husky sledging trip is very expensive but I wouldn't have missed it.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Just had one of the best weeks holidays of my life - give it a try and enjoy
