Description - What to expect

Your Lapland day trip starts with a pick-up from the center of Rovaniemi and a drive of about 70 km to the pristine northern forests. Follow your guide and wander into the woods, searching for fresh mushrooms and berries. Walk on beautiful trails and discover the gifts arctic wilderness has to offer after several months of coverage by a thick layer of snow.

Learn from the experienced locals how to transform the collected mushrooms into a tasty Lappish meal. After having lunch and some snacks, head back into the forest for some more exciting experiences, including fishing and swimming. Experience the Lappish way to grill a salmon with birch wood around a campfire.

Take time for yourself to soak in the tranquillity and freshness of the fantastic Lapland forest. In the evening, relax in a traditional Finnish sauna in a lakeside wooden cottage.
