Discover More About Finland
Finland is a fantastic destination in summer and winter for a walking holiday in the vast wilderness. In summer, trek though the forests and lakes of the Taiga, home to a variety of wildlife including wolves, bears and reindeer. In winter, being just beneath the Arctic Circle, the Taiga offers great snowshoeing adventures across lakes and into forests, with opportunities to go husky sledding and see the Northern Lights.
On our winter treks you will, of course, be walking over snow-covered ground and frozen lakes. The terrain is flat and undulating with no steep hills. In summer the terrain is similar, and conditions underfoot are usually good as you’ll be following decent trails, but at times you will journey through marshy and swampy areas. Accommodation includes log cabins and renovated guard stations, often with shared facilities.
The best time of year to visit Finland for a winter walking holiday is December to February, with January and February offering more daylight than the earlier winter months. In summer, the best time to visit is from July to September, when temperatures are warm, flowers are blooming and animals have come out of hibernation.
