Leave the hustle and bustle of daily life and give yourself a week of backcountry skiing in the enchanting solitude of Eastern Lapland! Enjoy a guided ski touring program in the beauty of the Finnish wilderness, the Scandinavian Mountains, and the satisfying tranquility of an oft-forgotten destination!

Eastern Lapland and the north of Finland is an unforgiving destination in both beauty and environment. Set in the Scandinavian Mountains and bordering Russia to the east, it is an outdoorsman’s dream location that offers a unique personal experience with the land and a rare chance to perform self-fulfilling activities in unusual conditions.

With wilderness risk comes wilderness reward, and that is where your program comes in. Over the course of a week, you will have the chance to ski virgin runs that have never been seen, let alone skied. Not only will you take advantage of prime snow and powder conditions, you will set up shop in the middle of this pristine landscape and camp your way through the entire trip.

Frozen lakes of immutable purity accompany your runs, with delightful tree skiing and long, uninterrupted runs a norm. You will bring your supplies and gear along with you on a sledge, living the way the locals do for an enriching cultural experience that enhances the skiing experience tenfold.

The nights will be spent building fires, eating wholesome meals, and enjoying the company of your group and nature. If we plan accordingly, we can expect to view the dancing Northern Lights as we nod off to sleep. Our isolation will give us unprecedented access to the star-filled sky, far away from the distractions of city lights and the worries of life.

This remarkable program is a truly evocative and moving experience, and I am thrilled to share it with you. I will give you a safe, genuine, and ultimately satisfying Finnish skiing trip that will leave a lasting impression on you. You will never forget your time in the immense wilderness of Finland.

You should be in great physical shape with the necessary mental fortitude to accomplish this sustained trip. You should have backcountry experience and be prepared for a journey that entails intractable resilience.

Book this perfect backcountry skiing program NOW and live a week of the Lapland life in the northern wild of 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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
