What a magical time I've just had the privilege to spend at Basecamp on the Exodus Wilderness Week... If you're thinking of booking, don't hesitate. It's the experience of a lifetime. Utterly perfect from start to....er....Finnish..(sorry!)

Stayed for one week with husband and 2 friends via Exodus. Had an amazing time. Did lots of different activities including dog sledding, cross country skiing, skiing at Ruka (excellent for beginners), reindeer farm and snow shoe walking. All activities were explained and taught brilliantly. Husky dogs definitely worth doing. Staff are very friendly and informative. Rooms better than expected....

Had a wonderful time here as part of a group. Clean but basic rooms to stay in, and a lovely view of the pine forests and lake from the balcony. All the staff looked after us really well, especially 'Teddy' the food provided was delicious, I defiantly did not go hungry! It was a relaxing stay, and I really enjoyed...

Beautiful snowy scenery in Oulanka National Park. Fun activities (included & optional) - never thought we'd be sleeping in a Quinzee we'd built ourselves! All the staff were brilliant, thanks to Teddy, Ida, Juuli & Jonni for making us so welcome & teaching us about Finnish life in the wilderness. All the food was delicious - compliments to the chef!...

I stayed here for a week over Christmas with an organised group trip. the chalets are small, basic, clean and have everything you need...after all you should be out in the national park! With frozen lakes, fast flowing river and just beautiful natural surroundings you have everything you need for a wilderness adventure and learning new skills.

I stayed here for 7 nights with an organised trip. The rooms are in wooden accommodation with underground heating which means the bathroom dries very quickly and if you clothes are wet lie them on the ground to dry out. There is a thermostat on the wall to adjust the temperature. The beds are average but everyone is different some...

I stayed here in October, which is clearly off season in Finland. I was the only ov ernight guest for two nights, but everything opened up for me (and closed after me) for dinner (which was very useful, since it is quite far from any other restaurant, over a dirt road - vry well driveable for any car by the...

We spent 2 nights in this lodge in August 2016. The manager and staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us many tips and organized many activities. We did half day canoeing and half day rafting trip. It was delightful. Some treeking tracks just nearby to discover forest and valleys. A very good restaurant cooking with local products.

The place had nice atmosphere and the staff was super nice. Warm clothing was required though indie. Popular trails are just nearby. The dinner was however only average and for that reason only 4 stars.

Basecamp Oulanka offers a basic accommodation and outdoor activities right next to the "pieni karhunkierros"-hiking trail. Smallish rooms with only amenity being a shower. Breakfast offering was pretty basic. Overall I would say this little pricey if you don't value the location right by the hiking trail above all.

Thank Sami J
