NEW TOUR 2014!

This cross-country ski tour takes place in the area of Kainuu, more specifically in Kuhmo municipality situated in the eastern border of Finland. The sparsely populated area is rich both in nature and culture and offers great circumstances for snow activities thanks to real – snowy and cold - winters it has. On this skiing tour you will ski in the forests and on the lakes and swamps, some 30 km in a day at your own pace.

During the week you will admire the snow-white landscape, listen to the quietness, spot animals’ tracks on the snow, enjoy picnic lunch around an open fire, relax in sauna, try ice-swimming and stare at the stars on the night sky. If you wish, you can skip one skiing day and let wonderful husky dogs take you for a memorable ride through the wilderness.
