Explore the largest national park in Finland and one of the most remote areas in the world on an eight-day ski touring adventure! This immersive guided program uncovers the fascinating flora and fauna of a remarkable region while providing over a week of incomparable backcountry skiing on untouched snow!

The Lemmenjoki National Park extends over 2,860-square kilometers in Finnish Lapland, making it the largest of its kind in the Nordic country. It is home to wild reindeer and immense spruce forests. Visitors can expect to spot bears, eagles, and wolves among other wild inhabitants, though the most captivating feature of this landscape is its impeccably serene beauty. It even has a compelling gold prospecting history begging to be dug up!

This stunning region is a perfect destination for backcountry skiers to discover the unequaled atmosphere that exists solely in Lapland. Your hut-to-hut ski touring program provides just that, sending you to the most accommodating ski conditions in a world-class environment. Over eight days you will experience life like a Finn and enjoy the finer aspects of its remote culture and entertainment.

We will have the option to stay in with locally-owned wilderness cabins, immersing us into the Sami culture of northern Finland and the stunning landscape. Experiencing this ski adventure like a local is a truly enriching feature to our program, and it will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on you and your fond memories.

Our days will consist of long and short backcountry objectives, aiming to achieve local goals like skiing along the Lemmenjoki River, snowshoeing to the summit of Morgan-Viibus, and photographing frozen waterfalls lost in the remote forests. You can even build your own “quinzee” – a hollowed-out snow shelter that mildly resembles an igloo. Sleeping in your quinzee is not required – unless you want to!

This experience is rare and unlike any other, so I always jump at the chance to introduce fellow skiers to it. I will guide you on a safe and satisfying trip through the wilds of Finland, so you can make lifetime memories in this gorgeous landscape. You will undoubtedly cross more than a couple items off of your bucket list along the way.

You should be in very good shape to complete the program, and the harsh weather and conditions of the region make it a challenging endeavor. You should have substantial backcountry experience and be prepared for the hostile environment and all that it can throw at you.

Book this unbelievable hut-to-hut ski touring program IMMEDIATELY and make this winter THE winter you finally make your Finnish backcountry dream come true!

Finnland is full of many other opportunities as well, like backcountry skiing in eastern Lapland and a guided ski touring program in the Kasivarsi Wilderness Area over eight days! Let me know if you are interested in one of these trips and we can make it happen!

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.
