8-day Halti hut-to-hut backcountry ski expedition in the Scandinavian fells, northern Finland

Join a certified mountain guide for this scenic and exciting 8-day backcountry skiing tour through the Kasivarsi Wilderness Area in northern Finland. Explore the Finnish section of the Scandinavian fells and experience the Arctic in all of its glory.


Scandinavian Mountains

8 Days

Jan - Apr




* Enjoy the stunning scenery of northern Finland.

* Ski over untouched and excellent powder each day.

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


The Scandinavian fells, also known as the Scandinavian Mountains, run through the northern end of Scandinavia and make for some of Europe’s best backcountry skiing.

Join us and over the course of 8 days, we will head out on an unforgettable hut-to-hut skiing adventure through the Kasivarsi Wilderness Area.

We will spend most of our trip above the tree line, enjoying incredible views as well as exploring the various mountains in the range, some of which are 1.000 meters high. We will even summit Finland’s tallest mountain (1.324 meters) as we go!

Each night will be spent in a different mountain hut, but if everyone is willing, we will also have the option to try out some Arctic camping.

Among the various highlights you can expect to enjoy on the trip are seeing frozen waterfalls, which are always an impressive sight, as well as enjoying the solitude of the empty Finnish backcountry.

At dark, we will also be privy to the Northern Lights. With no other competing source of light in the backcountry, we should get some unparalleled great views of this spectacular phenomenon.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for an unforgettable 8-day backcountry skiing adventure through the remote Scandinavian fells in Finland’s Kasivarsi Wilderness Area!

If you like the look of this trip then we think you will also enjoy our 8-day backcountry ski tour of Lemmejoki National Park, 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.
