DAY 1 - ARRIVAL DAY

WELCOME TO LAPLAND

You can arrive at the Rovaniemi train station/airport, the Kittilä airport or Kolari train station and your guide will arrange transfers for each of you to reach Ylläs, at the gateway to one of Finland’s most beautiful national parks.
The closest airport is Kittilä (25min away) and Rovaniemi (2hours). And the closest train stations are Kolari (30 min) and Rovaniemi (2h15).

Upon arrival at the cottage, which you will share with the other participants (maximum 6 women), you will settle your belongings in the rooms shared by two people. 5 nights are spent in a large fully-equipped wooden cottage, which is located in the beautiful nature and just 500m from the national park! Our cottage is large and cozy; It may accommodate the whole group in comfortable shared twin bedrooms. Also, the cottage is equipped with all facilities, kitchen, laundry machine, and a sauna that participants may happily use.

During this adventure week, you will get to know other female participants and enjoy great moments together, exploring the surroundings of the national park and sharing evenings together. And if the conditions are promising during your stay, your guide will take you one evening out to chase Northern lights with a professional camera! A 100% girl power atmosphere is guaranteed during the whole holiday!

DAY 2 - ENTERING THE FINNISH WAY OF LIFE

After a restful night at the cottage, the second day will start with breakfast (all meals are included). Then, you will learn about the local lifestyle by visiting an authentic reindeer farm run by a woman. Meeting the reindeer, the iconic animal of the Nordic countries, will also show you the strong and inspiring nature of Finnish women.

Next, you will embark on your first adventure, exploring the majestic landscapes of Lapland. A snowshoe hike will take you to the top of a hill in the national park. This will be the first step in getting used to the conditions for our main goal: a two-day, one-night adventure in the wilderness. If the weather is good, you can also watch the northern lights in the evening. Afterwards, you will return to the cottage to sleep.

DAY 3 - GETTING CLOSER TO THE EXPEDITION

A new day, a new experience. Today will be dedicated to learning backcountry skiing, as our upcoming expedition will be done on skis. You will go on a long backcountry ski trip, discovering the most beautiful spots in Finnish Lapland. You’ll enjoy lunch around a fire in one of the traditional Finnish shelters.

Participants use Altai skis for trekking ; they are easy to use and designed to let you glide on deep snow off the beaten tracks or groomed trails. Those Lappish backcountry skis (called in Finnish, “sliding snowshoes”) are equipped with a partial skin allowing to both hike uphill and slide downhill; thus they are the perfect gear for long Arctic expeditions in Lapland. Also, they adapt to standard winter shoes used for hiking (for example, Sorel-type boots).

At the end of the day, for those who are interested, you can visit the snow village (not included in the base price).
We will also prepare all the gear for the long-awaited expedition starting the next day.

DAY 4 & 5 - LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN !

The big adventure starts now! Early in the morning, we will finish preparing all our gear (sled, camping equipment, food…) before putting on our skis and starting this amazing experience together.
We will set off for two days of backcountry skiing in the Arctic wilderness, bringing our joy, strength, and most importantly, our determination as a women team! We will reach our campsite for the night and enjoy a friendly evening around a fire and perhaps observe Northern lights if the weather and solar conditions allow it.

Overnight during the ski expedition is spent as wilderness camping next to a wooden hut refuge in the national park. If the hut is free, participants may camp inside ; otherwise, winter tents, sleeping bags and mattresses are provided for a comfortable and safe outdoor camp night in the beautiful Lappish nature !

After a chilly night, we will put our skis back on to complete this wonderful adventure and return to the cabin by a different trail. A rewarding sauna session will be well-deserved!
You can then celebrate your achievement with a good meal together with the other girls, proud of stepping out of your comfort zone!

DAY 6 - FREE DAY

After a good night’s sleep, this day is yours to enjoy free time. You can relax at the cabin, take advantage of the sauna, and enjoy the beautiful surrounding nature. Alternatively, you may choose one or more activities of your choice (these activities are not included in the base price) among the following selection :

– Snowmobile : guided tour from 115€

– Electric fatbike ride : rentals starting from 50€

– Cross-country skiing initiation : rentals starting from 30€

– Downhill skiing : lifts and rentals from 80€

It’s up to you to create the memories you want. For our last evening together, we will enjoy each other’s company, hearts filled with joy and pride, and nice goodbye dinner!

DAY 7 - DEPARTURE

This day is dedicated to transfers by your guide to your departure point : either Rovaniemi train station/airport, Kittilä airport (recommended) or Kolari train station.
