Day 1

Flight from your airport to Kajaani, transfer to your accommodation. Check-in and time to explore the resort.

Day 2

Today your experience in Finnish wilderness starts as it is time to see Vuokatti Hills by snowshoeing and learn how people used to survive in this arctic area during older times. On this snowshoeing Safari you will get to know Finnish forest as its’ purest. Start is from Safari Center where you will be geared up with snowshoes. Transfer up to the Vuokatti hills where within minutes you’ll be surrounded by the forest and silence. Your guide will lead you deeper in the forest while telling you about snow-covered nature and Vuokatti Hills. After snowshoeing for an hour or so, stop at a wooden hut where you will be making fire with help of your guide. Sit down while the guide tells you about how people used to live in this area in the older days and how the forest was key for their living. Enjoy delicious snacks you cook by an open fire and take a sip from your warm drink. Some time for exploring the nature yourself and walk back to the parking lot. You will be energized, refreshed and in peace after escaping to the middle of the wildlife. Duration of tour is 4hrs with transfers.

Rest of the day you can explore the resort, go tobogganing or whatever you feel like – Vuokatti has plenty of choice.

Day 3

After seeing Vuokatti Hills from top, today you will enjoy beautiful views of Vuokatti Hills from the lake on a relaxed cross-country skiing adventure. Cross-country skiing is part of Finnish culture, and nearly every Finn learns it right after taking their first steps. You will spend the day learning how to cross-country ski and admire beautiful landscapes with a local guide. Great opportunity to spend the day in the nature, take pictures and get some exercise at the same time. Enjoy a tranquil winter landscape and maybe you’ll even cross some animal tracks on the way. Duration of tour 2-3hrs with transfers. Rest of the day you can head to the ski slopes, book snowmobile safari or why don’t you try ice-fishing?

Day 4

At last it is time to meet always friendly huskies! Transfer to the Husky Center where you will be swept from the excitement of the arena out into the peaceful and surreal winter forests. Learn how to harness the sled dogs and practice the skill of driving over a long distance. This trail is 6 km long and you’ll drive it with traditional Björkis 2 person sled. You will be inspired by the peaceful motion and the beautiful scenery. Hot drinks included. Duration of tour 2,5hrs with transfers.

Day 5

The last day in the winter wonderland and we’ve saved the most exciting experience last. We can promise that ice-bathing in a frozen lake is extreme and fun! First you’ll jump in waterproof suit and you’re ready for a refreshing bath! We admit that the idea of floating in a frozen lake does seem quite frightening, but we promise it’ll be fun! Once in the water the feeling is incredible. You will soon realize that it is warmer (or less cold, depending on the point of view) in the water than on the ice. As a matter of fact, the water is never colder than zero degrees – any less and it would freeze. Duration of tour 1,5hrs with transfers.

Day 6

Transfer to the airport and flight back home.
