If your accommodation is in Rovaniemi city center, we kindly ask you to walk to our office. Read below why. We have been awarded the Sustainable Travel Finland batch for sustainable tourism operations in Finnish Lapland. Sustainable business operations are of utmost importance to us. We have therefore decided to no longer do city pickups. If you are staying in the city center, we would kindly ask you to come to our office (our address: Rovakatu 24, 96200 Rovaniemi) and start the tour from there. You are not staying in the city center nor is your pickup location listed as an option? No problem! Please send us an email with your address and we take it from there. We hope you have a nice tour with us!

Limited to 8 participants


  • Explore the Finnish wilderness in a small group
  • Light a fire without using matches
  • Learn about animal footprints left in the snow in winter
  • See wild and beautiful places out of a fairytale in summer
Full description
In the wintertime, enjoy views of huge snow drifts, white trails, and frozen trees. You will learn about the footprints that you find in the snow. It’s a shame the bears will be sleeping as they have a very impressive paw print. But not to worry - you still have the chance of passing tracks made by wolves, lynx, wolverines, moose, reindeer and weasels. During the summer, your guide will teach you about the nature surrounding you. This tour aims to show you wild and beautiful forests that look as if they are straight out of a fairytale. Your guide will help you to learn how to appreciate these places.  On every tour, your guide will show you how to build and light a fire without the use of matches. You will learn what to look for in the forests that allow you to make fire easily at any time without damaging any vegetation.

    The location and the walk have been adapted according to the weather conditions, which is a very good thing. The park visited was very beautiful, the explanations very informative and the guides very friendly. I would have found it interesting to also ask us our expectations in order to be able to adapt the explanations to our preferences (Fauna, Flora, mammals, reptiles, birds, survival, environmental protection, etc.). Thank you for offering this type of outing.

    It was a hike in the forest about 30 minutes away from the city. The forest is very beautiful and well worth it.
