DESCRIPTION

DAY 1 – E-FATBIKE & CANOE

Welcome to Lapland! On your first day, you will explore Lapland landscapes with an electric fatbike trip through the forest and nature.

The fat tires of your bikes allow you to ride on every kind of terrain : city roads, rocky paths, forests, sand and even snow! They are easy to ride with their engine to help you in difficult moments. This is the perfect way to explore Lapland in summer & autumn!

Your guide will lead you from Rovaniemi city-centre on a scenic itinerary. The tour is always adapted, based on your level and condition. The chosen route is designed to let you first get familiar with your fatbike on easy cycling paths before entering forests roads and/or reaching hilltops. The tour is around 3 hours.

The afternoon will be let free to get some rest. This is the perfect time to walk in he city-centre and do some shopping. For a cultural activity we recommend you visiting the Arktikum Museum easily accessible by foot. If you prefer doing a small hike, Ounasvaara trail will be the best option not so far from the city.

As “night” comes, it will be time for another adventure ! You will go for a canoe trip on Rovaniemi’s rivers. Depending on the start times, you may enjoy midnight sun or beautiful gold colors reflecting on the water.

During the experience, you will enjoy paddling your own canoe on a quiet lake away from Rovaniemi area. This is a great outdoor experience that allows you to connect with the beautiful arctic nature while enjoying some gentle exercise.

A perfect time to relax after this first intensive day!

DAY 2 – PACKRAFT & HIKE

This day will be more adventurous and combine 2 different sports : packrafting and hiking. The experience mixes river rafting and hiking on a totally independent basis.

Packrafting is an ideal outdoor activity for water sports lovers and trekkers. The rafts are portable, compact and ultralight, allowing to carry them on a trek and unpacking them whenever one feels like paddling down a river. Nature cannot stop you anymore! With a packraft, you can navigate down fast moving rivers and white waters in an easy and safe way. The adventure will let you enjoy Lapland untouched landscapes while practicing a thrilling activity.

Packrafting requires a good physical condition. This activity is open to beginners if they are in good shape and can swim.

Once you went down the fast moving river, a lunch break will be served around the fire. You will then hike back to the starting point through the forest, stopping at some stunning viewpoints on hilltop.

DAY 3 – HORSEBACK RIDING & SAUNA

 

This is the last day of your sporty package. It will start by a horseback riding through the forest. Depending on your level you will go for a 1 hour or 2 hour ride. The ride takes place in a forest, along the path taken by reindeers and other animals. Rides in Lapland are so calm and peaceful that you might have the chance to observe wildlife.

The stable where the horses live is a family-sized ethical stable with passionate workers. Horses are treated with care and respect, and never ride too much for their health. With calm temperament, the Irish Cob horses are hardy and well adapted to Finnish cold temperatures.

In the afternoon, it is time to relax after these 3 sporty and challenging days. What would be better than a traditional Finnish sauna in the wilderness. Sauna is part of the local culture in many aspects, and therefore a must-do experience when coming to Lapland. Saunas are deeply ingrained in Finnish culture, and no trip to Lapland is complete without experiencing one. The traditional Finnish sauna involves going into a hot, dry room and sweating intensely for a short period of time, before cooling down in cold water. This practice became a hobby for many locals and is to be known as very good for the skin and the immune system. Enjoy an evening in a traditional wilderness sauna located outside Rovaniemi (transportation included) giving you full privacy. Dig in the freshwater straight from the sauna pontoon and listen to the peaceful sound of nature.

If you want to do more sport and try something else, we recommend extending the day and doing some SUP on the lake.
