We start our tour from the Russian border crossing station in the tiny town of Salla, just north of the Arctic Circle in Eastern Finland. In the next eight days, we will ski across Finland’s magic Lapland and reach the Swedish border in Muonio. Next, we will enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Swedish Lappland and cross the border to Norway in Riksgransen. Finally, on the last day, we ski down the North-Atlantic coast near Narvik.
During the 14 days, we ski approximately 800km, or 50-70 kilometers daily. We ski mainly along snowmobile tracks, where a local snowmobilist drives a skitrack the same day. Some days we pass ski resorts and can utilize their permanent skitracks (in perfect condition). Free technic skiing is possible in some parts of the route.
Our service van/coach moves your luggage to the next accommodation and takes care of the group’s daily breaks. So you carry only your light everyday backpack and enjoy 100% cross-country skiing in Lapland scenery.
For accommodation, we use mainly hotel standard rooms (2-4 persons in a room), and holiday apartments/cottages (4-6 persons) or similar might be used for several nights.
