Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    During our adventure, we will enjoy beautiful nature and photograph the breath-taking landscapes around us. We use special skin-based skis, which take skiing from cross-country right into the backcountry. Backcountry skiis represent the freshest Finnish innovation in wilderness exploration. Owing to their composition and skin-based material they provide us unlimited access to the endless, snowy hinterlands of Lapland.

    We will start our tour from Rovaniemi and drive to our location hidden in the forest. During the trip, we will take a break in a wooden shelter and prepare some sausages over an open fire. We will be surrounded by all of the most astonishing features of Lappish nature. Moving on skiis in these snowy landscapes gives us unforgettable opportunities for photography! The tour is always guided by a professional photographer who will share his knowledge of landscape and nature photography.

    Thank you for taking the time to write a comment. It is very nice to hear that your experience with us has been good! Providing the clothes sure is something that make the tours more enjoyable for some of our guests, since the winter days can go very, very cold. Thank you for joining us and we wish you all the best for the future!
