Hiking in Finland

There's something pure in the Finnish air and spirit that's incredibly vital and exciting. Finland is one of Europe's best-kept secret. This extremely sparsely populated country is home to dense forests and thousands of clear and sparkling lakes.  These pristine and picturesque landscapes offer travellers an unforgettable experience.  Each region in Finland has its own distinct character, from the wilds of Lapland to the magical lakes in the east and archipelagos in the South West area.

Travelers from all over the world come here to enjoy excursions, adventures and facilities that enable them to photograph and get spectacular shots of the beautiful wild landscapes, the special light and magnificent animals in their natural wild settings.Hikers and cross-country skiers can roam the endless forests and wide-open northern fells, while the lakes and rivers of central and eastern Finland are ideal for canoeists, and the labyrinthine archipelagos of the Baltic are a sailor's paradise.

Take a five days hiking in Urho Kekkonen National Park, considered to be one of Lapland’s most pleasant and most varied destinations for walking holidays. It is Finland’s second largest national park, covering 2,550 square kilometres, and encompasses a wide range of varied landscapes, from mighty fells and vast bogs to forested areas. There is a large selection of marked trails that make it easy for inexperienced hikers to explore the huge park, while the wilderness areas are perfect for longer and more demanding hikes.

Hiking is a popular form of recreation in heavily forested Finland. Lapland holds its own special appeal, but you can ramble for a day or more even in southern Finland. Outside Helsinki, for example, there are numerous trails in Nuuksio National Park. The provinces of middle Finland have a network of hiking trails that total some 300km (185 miles).

Escape to the unspoilt nature of the Finnish ‘Taiga’ forest and join our guided hut-to-hut hiking tour. This ancient forest is in Kainuu, north east Finland. Kainuu is a region steeped in culture, wildlife and wilderness experiences, many of which you will enjoy on this tour.
The route we will take passes through the untouched wilderness and pristine nature, through primordial forests and mires, along ridges and shores of crystal clear lakes. You even get the chance to canoe on the same lakes and nearby rivers.
