Flight from London via Helsinki to Kajaani to transfer to your accommodation. Check-in and time to explore the resort. 
 
DAY 2 
Today your experience in Finnish wilderness really starts. Transfer to the Husky Centre where you feel the excitement build as you learn how to harness the sled dogs and practice the skill of driving over a long distance. Be swept out of the arena and into the peace of the winter forests. 
Adults and teenagers can safely drive themselves, whilst children sit warmly on board the sled. 
This trail is 6km long and you’ll drive it with a traditional 2 per person sled. Hot drinks are included. Duration of the excursion is 2.5 hrs with transfers. The rest of the day you can explore the resort, go tobogganing or whatever you feel like – Vuokatti has plenty of choice. 
 
DAY 3 
This is the day for everyone who loves the roar of an engine. 
Transfer to the Safari Centre for an introduction and safety talk. 
This snowmobile safari takes you up to the Vuokatti hills where beautiful winter scenery will open up. You drive this safari with a touring model snowmobile – due to new technology it’s safer and more environmentally friendly producing lower emissions. On your way back, you’ll stop for a break and enjoy a hot drinks & some snacks.

This day is for yours to spend at leisure, do as much or as little as you like. For example, you can hit the slopes, go cross country skiing, rent snowshoes or spend the day at Katinkulta Spa or the Superpark. 
DAY 5 
Spend the day at leisure to do as you please – maybe some tobogganing or a relaxing day at the Katinkulta Spa – because tonight is the night to hunt for the Northern lights with huskies. Truly a unique adventure on a 15 km trail. A beautiful route to trek alongside the scenery of the spectacular Vuokatti Hills and with a bit of good luck the amazing Aurora Borealis. Travel across astounding landscapes with only the sound of your dog team breathing and their paws hitting the trail. This route runs on snow covered meadows, fields and forest. The trail is 15km long which takes approximately 1 hour (depending on weather). After an hour of husky sledding it is time to get to know your friendly dogs better on a tour in the husky arena. Plenty of time to take photos and pet the dogs. After meeting the huskies, a delicious soup is waiting at the cosy cafeteria. Duration of the excursion is 3.5hrs with transfers. 
 
DAY 6 
Snowshoe adventure is the perfect way to explore Vuokatti’s winter landscape authentically. You’ll start from the Safari Centre where you’ll be taught how to use the snowshoes. You then head up the Vuokatti hills and enjoy the snowy forest and amazing winter scenery. After the walk you’ll enjoy some hot drinks and snacks during the relaxing break. Duration of the excursion is 2.5hrs with transfers. 
 
DAY 7 
Your last day in the winter wonderland. Maybe you’ll just enjoy the nature, have another husky safari or hit the slopes – the choice is yours and there will definitely be something for everyone. 
 
DAY 8 
Transfer to the airport for your flight back home.
