In the north of Europe lies mountainous Lapland, rich in beautiful nature. Lapland extends over four different countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. The Shoestring Lapland tour takes you to Finnish Lapland.
Finland offers the ideal opportunity to discover the winter wonders in a snowy environment. Various activities in the snow introduce you to the magic of Finnish Lapland. Vast white landscapes are ideal for unforgettable safaris through the area. Swirling snowflakes, treetops with a thick layer of snow, frozen waters and endless snowy plains make Lapland one big journey of discovery.
Oulanka National Park is an enchanting nature reserve close to Kuusamo and the Russian border. In summer, the trees, shrubs and crops turn into endless shades of green and in winter, the colour white dominates due to the thick layer of snow. In winter, trek through the wilderness with special snowshoes for easy transportation. Beautiful hiking trails in the Oulanka Nature Reserve take you through the untouched landscape.
A highlight of your Lapland tour is the husky sleigh ride! Enjoy the magical world and the silence around you while listening to the crunch of the fresh snow as the dogs move. Exciting and sensational moments alternate with calming and energetic moments. Think of the hot chocolate in front of the fireplace, listening to the crackling of the snow and the silences in nature that ensure an unforgettable experience during your tour of Lapland.
