Silence in the heart of nature

For those looking for an, ‘away from it all’ relaxing break, the peace and enrapturing beauty of the Wild Taiga in Eastern Finland makes an ideal self-drive destination. With quiet roads and short distances from numerous attractions, ancient forests, lakes and gentle activities, you will feel you have truly escaped to nature.

During your tour you will have the chance to; paddle, hike, go bear watching, take a husky trek and try outdoor yoga. You can also experience ‘living like a Finn’ when you overnight in a traditional lakeside log cabin, swim in the crystal clear waters and take daily saunas.

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!
