Snowshoeing in Finland

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Seeing the northern lights four times in one week.

What did you think of your group leader?

Martti was a charming host and a great advert for Finland. He clearly shares the ecological ethos of Basecamp Oulanka.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

If you want a very active week be prepared to take unguided walks or optional extras. Don't forget your driving licence if you want to snowmobile.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Don't stress about buying special cold weather kit. They will provide everything and it is well laundered. If you realy want to take your own stuff, base layers are all you need.
