Join us on a snow-filled activity holiday in Eastern Finland. Our holiday combines a whole host of winter activities including snowmobiling, husky sledging, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and we can even try our hand at ice fishing!

Couples Racing on Snowmobiles

Why Go?

  • Experience the great outdoor wilderness of Finland
  • Take part in all the included winter activities
  • Try and spot the magnificent Northern Lights!
  • Enjoy spending leisure time in our hotels Wellness Centre

By husky and snowmobile!

We will visit a husky farm were we can enjoy the best way to travel in Finland… by husky! Take part in a husky sleigh ride and we even have a go at driving them ourselves! What better way to get to the husky farm than by snowmobile! We will have the opportunity to do a snowmobile safari through the pine forests on a 2 hour excursion.

Frozen Lake Experience and Snow Action!

During our stay we explore the Taiga Forest and frozen lake on a two hour snow-shoe excursion. We also try our hand at ice fishing on the frozen lake, learning all the traditional techniques. We will also enjoy learning cross-country ski skills at the local ski school.  All equipment is provided for our included activities, plus use of kick-sledges and sledges are available for the duration of your stay.

Relax

After all our daytime activities, what we’ll need are nice relaxed evenings and that’s exactly what’s on offer at our hotel! On returning from our days of adventure you have access to the onsite sauna and Jacuzzi to relax your aching muscles. Or brave the cold for a lake-side sauna – immersion in hot water followed by a leap into the lake; not for the fainthearted! Included in our trip is a traditional Finnish smoke sauna.

A Finnish Winter Wonderland

Our destination for our adventure holiday is the Wild Taiga region in Eastern Finland. The region is a wonderful destination for winter activities (with eyes peeled for the Northern Lights) and famed for its wildlife as it is a landscape surrounded by hills, forests, lakes and rivers, which are home to moose, reindeer, and large carnivores including the brown bear, wolverine, grey wolf and lynx.

Hotel Kalevala ★★★★

Built in a style to mirror the surrounding nature, the Kalevala hotel sits on the shores of Lake Lammasjärvi in Eastern Finland close to the Russian border.

Facilities include

The pleasant restaurant, with great views over the lake, offers excellent food, including a traditional Finnish meal on one evening during the week.
