Finnish Wilderness Week

Best trip in a long time!

5
I think this trip exceeded expectations for me. It was a very active week with a great selection of winter sports and the opportunity to try something different. I've now recommended it to a handful of people.

This will be THE most amazing and fun week you will ever have! The setting is just beautiful - your snug and warm cabin looking out over the snow covered forest, a short walk away from the frozen lake. The BaseCamp staff will look after you, keeping you warm and extraordinarily well fed throughout the week, and exhausted (in a good way) from all the various fun activities.

Winter Wonderland

Fantastic Finland! Cross country skiing over frozen lakes and forests, happy huskies!, snowshoeing through magnificent scenery, climbing the ice wall, snowshoeing in the forest at night, making quinzees, absailing... A dream come true for me to be able to partake in so many activities...I just loved it! The staff at Oulanka basecamp were wonderful, they definitely made the week with their extremely detailed knowledge of the area, the equipment and the activities we did...so much fun and laughter but always with safety as a priority. The equipment used was well maintained and in good order. All outdoor clothing was provided together with base and mid layers, gloves, beanie hats and even socks if you wished! For anyone who hasn't done a winter holiday before, it saves a lot of expense and as previous clients have mentioned, there's no need to take much clothing with you.

A very satisfying holiday that went beyond my expectations. The adventure was well planned and well organised throughout the week. Oulanka Base Camp staff are delightful people who are to be commended for their knowledge, skills and attitudes. They made the holiday the success it was. The food was consistently amazing too! The equipment for the various activities was in good order and worked well, the accommodation was simple yet suffice and contributed to the sense of calm and peace. The location is stunning!

Adventure

What a wonderful adventure. We really enjoyed all of the activities: snow shoe walking, cross country sking, igloo building, husky rides. There are optional things to do also such as reindeer farm, ice wall and abseiling. Although it was - 17 on the coldest day the clothing provided keeps you warm and toasty. I have never been on a group holiday before and a little apprehensive but don't be, met some wonderful spirited adventures. Base camp is great, staff very friendly and helpful, food lovely and filling. Only down side: we had to come home

Finnish Wilderness Week - just book it!

5
This was our first Exodus adventure, and our first guided holiday, but right now we are booking our second! Basecamp Oulanka is a friendly safe & cosy retreat with an excellent team of knowledgeable and welcoming staff. The holiday is a mixture of activity, learning new skills, seeing stunning scenery, relaxing with new found friends and eating home cooked hearty food - what more can you want?! If you are thinking about booking it, JUST DO IT! We are a 36 year old couple who enjoy the outdoors and enjoy being active, and I have recently become interested in photography, so this holiday ticked all the boxes!

A good mix of activities and time to relax

5
It is really like the pictures in the brochure! So beautiful and peaceful but with lots of activities to try out along with time to relax in comfortable accommodation and excellent quality local food. As daylight hours at short this encourages you to spend a few hours relaxing in front of the open fire in the late afternoon before dinner.

A wonderful week of winter activities (all of them a new experience for me from snow shoeing to husky dog sleds) and fun in the snow. The evenings were spent in the community building/hub eating great food and enjoying the company of the rest of the group round the fire with a few drinks.
