Quick notes: 10 days – $3,850 US
Trip date available March 20 to 28, 2023
Depart on a 10-day excursion through the northernmost part of Finland, also called Lapland. This is the magical Arctic region known for its long winter, Northern Lights, wide open wilderness areas, frozen lakes and stunning Arctic fells.
On this tour, powered by evoTrip’s partners at Mint Tours, we’ll visit several ski resorts in Finland, including Pyhä-Luosto, Saariselkä, Levi and Ylläs. The Scandinavian ski areas are located far enough north that they are guaranteed to have snow for the whole season. Finnish ski resorts have plenty of powder skiing opportunities with temperatures well below zero.
When we’re not skiing and snowboarding, you’ll be living an arctic life, which includes unique Finnish activities such as riding huskies and snowmobiles or swimming in the winter in smoke saunas. You can also tour the backcountry using snowshoes and go skiing on hand-crafted boards.
As always, evoTrip’s tours are guided by experienced local hosts who live and work within the outdoor community of northern Finland and Lapland giving you a true ‘Mint’ perspective.
