Arctic Wilderness in 6 days

If you want to experience the true wilderness of the Arctic Circle and let the stillness of the Nordic nature detox your mind, our recommendation for you is the package at the Logging Lodge and Russian End. The 6-day package includes for example fatbiking, snow shoe walking, husky sledding and watching majestic Golden Eagles.

Firstly, our experienced guide will take you to the authentic lodge that used to be the accommodation for loggers decades ago. Its bunk beds, dining hall and reindeer hides remind us of the lumberjack tradition. Logging Lodge is located in the middle of the vast pine forests, so you will connect with the nature and enjoy the silence like nowhere else.

Two nights will be spent at a hunters’ cabin called the Russian End, a remote log chalet located at the spot where Oulanka-river and Russian border meet. The traditional wood-burning sauna and a dip in the frozen river will prepare you for a good night sleep at the quietness of the log cabin. In this arctic adventure you will enjoy simple, yet tasty, authentic Finnish food from local ingredients, and get back to the basics without internet or electricity.

During the days we will spend the few hours of sunlight doing outdoor activities, and in the evenings we relax indoors, just like the loggers and hunters used to do in the old days. There are also kick sleds available so you can make short expeditions in the surrounding nature during the daytime. In the evenings, as the city lights are far away, these locations are ideal for stargazing and spotting the Northern lights.

One of the highlights of the trip is an overnight stay at Napapiiri – Arctic Circle, where you sleep in the unique snow hotel. Here you will also learn more about the Arctic nature in our exhibition, and spend a peaceful evening roasting marshmallows in the fireplace lounge.
