Full description
Cross-country skiing is both a fascinating sport and an age-old environmentally friendly way of getting around in arctic conditions. On this tour, learn the basics of this wonderful winter sport and enjoy a photography tour through the wilderness area. Leave the known tourist destinations in order to experience and photograph the real serenity and beauty of the arctic forests.

On your skiing adventure, you will use skis that enable you to get off the known tracks, into the deep snow. The specialist skis represent the newest innovation in Finnish wilderness exploration. Owing to their composition and skin-based material, they provide unlimited access to the endless snowy hinterlands of Lapland. Expect some unforgettable landscapes and opportunities for photography.

Your journey starts from Rovaniemi, where you get on a minivan and drive to a hidden location in the forest. After skiing and photographing for a while, stop at a wooden shelter to grill sausages over an open fire. The tour is always guided by a professional photographer who will share their knowledge in landscape and nature photography, so you can get the photos you desire.
