Go beyond the busy slopes and explore the vast backcountry unfolding from the doorstep of your lodge. On a guided expedition cross-country skiers get to take in the rugged landscape now covered with a thick layer of powdery snow. Meandering through fells, fjords and valleys is the very essence of slow adventuring. Take in the beauty of the monochrome landscape as you begin to understand the Nordic love for being outside, regardless of the temperature.
The continental climes in Northern Finland guarantee snow all the way until May. Expect crisp air, frozen winter forests and slopes raising adrenaline levels of beginners and intermediate skiers alike. The Finnish fells are ideal for family holidays. In cosy family-friendly resorts you can join the locals in what can only be described as a national sport. Since Santa is keeping himself busy in the dreamy forests of Lapland, visiting him or his reindeer is a surefire way to light up the eyes of the little ones.
The Norwegian Alps reward with stunning fjord views and untouched wilderness. In luxury retreats and family-friendly lodges you can unwind to the stunning view of the jagged peaks you are about to challenge. Travellers can join guided backcountry tours in the Lyngen Alps or ski the slopes of Norwegian ski resorts.
