    What to Expect
    Day 1

    Arrival to Kuusamo, Kajaani or Oulu airport and transfer to Hossa. You will enjoy a welcoming dinner at the Wilderness Lodge, where you will be staying for three nights during this week. Staying in a remote log-cabin setting with no luxuries in the beginning and returning back to the modern comforts towards the end, makes the experience truly out of ordinary, authentic and totally pervasive on many levels.

    Day 2

    After breakfast you´ll head on an exploration in the protected forests and marshes around the cabins. The circular snowshoe walk will start right from our doorstep with the total distance being around 8,5 km. Lunch by the fire during the day, dinner and sauna in the evening.

    Day 3

    This morning after breakfast there´s a 30 min transfer to the Hossa National Park, where you do another app. 8,5 km circular walk in a very different surrounding as here the forests are more dominated by pine trees and there´s a bit more ups and downs on the way. After having returned to the car in the afternoon around 3-4 pm, your guide will drive you to your accommodation, to a beautiful farmhouse homestay for this one night, from where you walk back to the Wilderness Lodge the next morning. Dinner and sauna in the evening.

    Day 4

    Today you will make the third walk of the week and head back to the wilderness for one more night. Today´s 10,5 km walk includes crossing vast open mires and walking through versatile landscapes, getting you truly exposed to this remote wilderness, lunch by the fire as usual. After having arrived back to the Wilderness Lodge for one more night, the sauna will be heated up and the dinner served in the evening.

    Day 5

    Today after breakfast, you will head to a dog-sledding trip and do a 30 km/5h day trip with the huskies. After the safari you are taken to your accommodation, which for the last two nights is in the middle of the Hossa village, in a cozy apartment with a lakeside sauna and all the modern comforts to ensure your smooth landing back from the wilderness. Dinner is served at a nearby restaurant in the evening.

    Day 6

    This morning after having breakfast in the same nearby restaurant we do a short transfer and visit your guide´s family reindeer farm, where you get to feed the animals, drive a snow-mobile and and learn new things about this special way of life. In the afternoon you´ll be taken back to your accommodation where the warm sauna is waiting for you once more. Last evening dinner will be served later at a very special setting in the Hossa reindeer park, where you´ll be served a delicious local dish.

    Day 7

    Breakfast and transfer to the airport.
