Itinerary

Flying into Enontekio Airport in Northern Finland from your chosen UK departure point, you will board a coach for your 1- 1¼ hour transfer to your chosen accommodation in Finnish or Swedish Karesuando separated only by the natural border of the Muonio River.

Due to the extended nature of the excursions your itinerary will be revised according to local conditions and given to you upon arrival. There may be one day when you undertake two of the activities and your itinerary will be planned to accommodate the local weather conditions. During your welcome meeting, which will be held on arrival at your accommodation, your guide will give you all the information you need to get the best from your Lapland break and will also offer a list of optional excursions you can add to tailor-make your perfect stay! You can add optional excursions on to your trip at any time during your stay but these will be subject to availability.
