Description

Peruse the beauty in the northern wilds of Finland on an eight-day ski touring program! Take a guided program in Halti and the surrounding Kasivarsi Wilderness Area and enjoy the rare opportunity to explore the snowy paradise of a historic northern European landscape!

Set in the most mountainous terrain of Finland, the Kasivarsi Wilderness Area is located in the northwestern corner of the country. This expansive Lapland region is notorious for hilly skiing conditions in the remote countryside along the border with Norway and Sweden.

In Kasivarsi, you can ascend Halti Fell, the highest point in the country, while taking in the abundant and unique flora and fauna, including Arctic char. The unforgiving landscape possess a captivating beauty that can be experienced with every sense on this amazing eight-day program. You will be ski touring through the unmatched backcountry of some of Finland’s most remarkable sites with an experienced certified guide to make sure you get the most from this trip.

Our approach to the wilderness area is made easier with seamless transfers from Tromso and Kilpisjarvi. The Sami culture exuding from every point in our journey enhances the enriching local experience of the ski program. Each night we settle into wilderness huts to provide a truly immersive Finnish understanding.

The peaceful nature of the Kasivarsi is sure to please any adventure looking to avoid the crowds and spend their days discovering untouched snow along varying routes and landscapes. This hilly region promises phenomenal skiing with delightfully cultured activities to supplement your program.

This area is like my backyard, and I would be honored to show you a local experience in this pristine territory. My program is a safe, satisfying, and all-around fun way to live the Finnish lifestyle synonymous with Scandinavia. You will never forget this extraordinary adventure.

You should be in great physical shape and possess strong skills as a skier. The backcountry in Lapland and the Kasivarsi Wilderness Area is desolate and challenging, which means you should also have the mental fortitude to complete this sustained expedition.

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.
