Went to here with my husband, daughter and my sister in a Finnish Wilderness week and we all had an amazing time. Our accommodation was warm and cosy. The food was varied and very tasty. My daughter has Coeliacs and they provided a gluten free version of every meal for her which we can't even get in top restaurants. The...

Basecamp Oulanka is a fantastic base from which to try lots of different activities. The rooms are perfectly sized, warm (underfloor heating) and showers hot (make sure the whole lodge doesn't shower together to get good pressure!) The main lodge is warm, open fires and the bar well stocked. The supply games and books should you want them. Staff are...

Overall this is an excellent introductory week to winter activities in the beautiful frozen forests, lakes, and rivers. Before: very good communication from Exodus. Queries answered promptly. I did need to prompt them to send my final joining instructions. Detailed trip information on their website, which gives an accurate idea of what to expect, though actual day to day programme...

Stayed for one week with husband and 2 friends via Exodus. Had an amazing time. Did lots of different activities including dog sledding, cross country skiing, skiing at Ruka (excellent for beginners), reindeer farm and snow shoe walking. All activities were explained and taught brilliantly. Husky dogs definitely worth doing. Staff are very friendly and informative. Rooms better than expected....

Had a wonderful time here as part of a group. Clean but basic rooms to stay in, and a lovely view of the pine forests and lake from the balcony. All the staff looked after us really well, especially 'Teddy' the food provided was delicious, I defiantly did not go hungry! It was a relaxing stay, and I really enjoyed...

Beautiful snowy scenery in Oulanka National Park. Fun activities (included & optional) - never thought we'd be sleeping in a Quinzee we'd built ourselves! All the staff were brilliant, thanks to Teddy, Ida, Juuli & Jonni for making us so welcome & teaching us about Finnish life in the wilderness. All the food was delicious - compliments to the chef!...

I stayed here for a week over Christmas with an organised group trip. the chalets are small, basic, clean and have everything you need...after all you should be out in the national park! With frozen lakes, fast flowing river and just beautiful natural surroundings you have everything you need for a wilderness adventure and learning new skills.

I stayed here for 7 nights with an organised trip. The rooms are in wooden accommodation with underground heating which means the bathroom dries very quickly and if you clothes are wet lie them on the ground to dry out. There is a thermostat on the wall to adjust the temperature. The beds are average but everyone is different some...
