Finnish border hiking tour

Escape to the unspoilt nature of the Finnish ‘Taiga’ forest and join our guided hut-to-hut hiking tour. This ancient forest is in Kainuu, north east Finland. Kainuu is a region steeped in culture, wildlife and wilderness experiences, many of which you will enjoy on this tour.

The route we will take passes through the untouched wilderness and pristine nature, through primordial forests and mires, along ridges and shores of crystal clear lakes. You even get the chance to canoe on the same lakes and nearby rivers.

Accommodation varies from log cabins to guest houses.
The trail is mostly flat and easy to walk, therefore suitable for anyone of average fitness level.

Finland hiking holiday highlights:
• Pristine wilderness
• Glistening clear lakes
• Picnics around an open fire
• Lake-side saunas
• Hossa National Park – the 40th national park in Finland (will be inaugurated in June 2017)

Summer

Upitrek summer tours run from mid-May until late September.

You can choose from week-long hiking, cycling or canoeing tours or multi-activity weeks with a mixture of activities. Wildlife excursions are also available and amongst the most memorable of experiences.

If you want to explore a larger area, a self-drive program or a circular bus tour is a great alternative – both of which give opportunities to try various activity programmes.

Come and enjoy with us the long warm summer days and experience 24hrs light in the land of the midnight sun!
