My wife and I had an excellent climbing experience on the ice falls at the Korouoma Canyon. The entire trip was very well organized (transportation, equipment, hot drinks, bonfire, etc). Our experienced guides Artturi, Juhani and Nora were very friendly and helpful. During the hike to the falls they explained a lot about the beautiful region and at the ice fall they did a fantastic job in guiding us. We did several climbs and we even had the chance to climb when it was getting dark (totally different experience). I would highly recommend this activity. Thanks a lot and enjoy the rest of the season 😉

Huge thanks Ben & Jade, it was an absolute joy and privilege to start the ice climbing season 2021-2022 at Korouoma Canyon in Posio Lapland with you guys! We will also remember all the fun and inspiring conversations around the bonfire after the frosty day of ice climbing. Hope to get to have you with us again, all the best for you both!

I’ve never rock climbed before. I wanted an experience unlike any other in Finland, so I decided to Ice Climb, and it was a once in a lifetime experience! Juhani and his partner (really sorry I forgot their name) helped create a long-lasting memory for me in this country far away from home. Ice climbing was difficult, but the tour guides encouraged me to continue and helped me build confidence that they will keep me safe and out of danger. I will be recommending this tour with this company for many others in the future when I talk about Finland. Thank you so much!

Breathtaking hike through Korouoma canyon and first time/once in a lifetime ice climbing experience. I was able to tackle this huge challenge thanks to Sampo and Artturi, who have been amazing professionals, convincing me not to give up too early, giving moral support and ensuring safety at all times. Thanks A LOT to you guys, I definitely wouldn't have done it without you!!!!!
Thanks also to Mikael for his tremendous help in trying to plan this excursion for a solo traveler.

Every year I try and find a different venue around the world to ice climb. Finland has attracted me for several years and finding Bliss Adventure was a 'God send'! We contacted Mikael Backman and although to date Bliss had offered only single day ice climbing experiences, Mikael went out of his way to arrange climbing at the best locations in Finland and Norway.
I have climbed for many years, both independently and with guides, so am able to make some comparisons. Without hesitation I can say Mikael delivered everything expected and so much more. Nothing was too much trouble including arranging for two qualified and friendly guides, Fredrik Asdo and Vegards Rye to take us to climbs that were in excellent condition, in beautiful areas and deserted.
The three of us had a great time topped off with dog sledding, skiing, fat bike riding and snow mobiles at the end of our weeks' climbing. Multi venue, multi activity with an excellent Adventure company- don't hesitate, go for it.
And those long dark winter nights north of the Artic Circle, well they aren't. The snow and strange light around dawn and dusk extends the activity time.

Thank you so much for the kind feedback! We loved to have you over, it was very rewarding and refreshing to get the privilege to arrange you this tailored ice climbing tour in the Arctic. Was a pleasure to meet you all. Thanks again for trusting us, hope to get to see you next winter again - there's so much cool & genuine activities to do in Lapland!

My son and I spend four days in Rovaniemi in early Jan 2020. He is only 11 but enjoys the outdoors and was looking for adventure-type experiences. We chose Rovaniemi in no small part due to the fact that prior to booking, we found lots of tour operators offering a wide variety of adventure and outdoor offerings. What I failed to realize was that most of these operators are set up merely to give you a 'brush' with the outdoors. On one snowshoe walk, our guide walked on a beaten path in shoes, and directed us to stomp in the snow. On an ice fishing trip, another guide gave us toy rods to dangle in a river about 3 meters wide.
What does this have to do with Bliss? My son and I were thrilled that this was a true outdoor experience. Our guides Marko and Claudia were pro's. The hike through the canyon was beautiful. And the climbing was fantastic. We were infinitely comfortable with Bliss, and the guides went out of their way to ensure our safety and fun.
I suspect from the quality of the guides - real Finns who genuinely love the outdoors - that all their trips are run like this. If you are looking for a true, authentic wilderness experience or adventure in Rovanimi, Bliss is the only operator of the four we experience that I would recommend.
