Description

Join our experienced guide for this 1-week hiking tour through the scenic Taiga forest along the Finnish-Russian border!

We will spend the week hiking in solitude as we explore the northeast region of Kainuu, which boasts a diverse array of pristine scenery including moorlands, lakes, ridges and ancient spruce forests.

Since we will be in the remote wilderness of the Taiga, there will also be plenty of opportunities to see the unique and native wildlife species of the region. Wolverines, brown bears and timber wolves all make their homes in this region.

When we finish our daily hike, which will usually cover about 19 kilometers, we will enjoy fine Finnish hospitality. The walks are usually relatively flat, but a fair amount of physical fitness is required for this trip.

Each night we will stay at a forest hut where we will enjoy a traditional meal made with fresh fruit from the forest as well as other locally sourced ingredients. Some huts will even have a sauna, which we will be able to use before taking a refreshing dip in a nearby lake.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this epic 1-week hiking tour through the beautiful Taiga forest along the Finnish-Russian border!

If you like the look of this trip then we think you will also enjoy our 8-day hiking tour in Kainuu, eastern Finland!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
