8-day backcountry ski expedition in Lemmenjoki National Park, northern Finland

8-day backcountry ski expedition in Lemmenjoki National Park, northern Finland

Join a certified mountain guide for an unforgettable 8-day backcountry skiing experience in the old growth boreal forests of Lemmenjoki National Park in northern Finland. Enjoy the eclectic landscape, stay in cozy mountain huts and learn some wilderness survival skills too.


8 Days

Jan - Mar, Dec




* Enjoy the stunning scenery of Lemmenjoki National Park.

* Ski over untouched and high-quality powder each day.

* Take advantage of great opportunities to see the Northern Lights!


Lemmenjoki National Park is vast and sprawls over 2.850 square kilometers in the remote Finnish Lapland region, making it the largest and northernmost national park in the country.

In the winter, the boreal forests and small fells (mountains) are covered in light and deep powder, making the national park the perfect place for an incredible backcountry skiing experience.

Over the course of 8 days, we will explore this remote and beautiful wilderness, getting the chance to see some of the local wildlife as well as the pristine natural scenery. Silent and snow-covered old growth forests along with fells and the Ravadasköngä frozen waterfall are among just some of the highlights.

Along the way, we will learn various wilderness survival skills, including  how to build a snow shelter, in which you can opt to spend the night.

On the other nights, we will stay in a cozy mountain hut and even get to spend one of them in a traditional Finnish Kota shelter, which is a tent-like space constructed of wooden poles and reindeer hide or textiles (similar to a teepee).

During the nighttime hours is also when we will have the best chance to see the Northern Lights. With no light pollution in the sky, Lemmenjoki National Park is an ideal spot for seeing the atmospheric phenomenon.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this incredibly fun, informative and scenic 8-day backcountry ski touring adventure through Lemmenjoki National Park in northern Finland!

If you like the look of this trip then we think you will also enjoy our 8-day hut-to-hut backcountry ski touring in the Scandinavian fells, also in northern Finland!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
