Microadventure with children - Adventure by Design

Join us for an overnight adventure suitable for children.
Opastamme myös suomeksi!
We will design a tour which the whole family will enjoy. There are a lot of possible options around the small town of Kilpisjärvi in North Finland for an easy hike away from the civilization to enjoy the pristine arctic nature. We will stay a night either in a wilderness cabin or in a tent under the stars in a location with stunning views over the arctic wilderness. We will enjoy lunch on the first day before reaching our destination for the day. In the evening we can make a fire, eat a dinner together and share stories from the arctic. We try to find the best places to spot wildlife and depending of your group we can design a tour with longer or shorter walks, by the lake or above the treeline and so on. With a guide you can learn about the arctic nature, it’s animals and flora, climate and how it is changing. You will hear about life in the region, both today and in the past. Our guides live in the area all year around, so they know these routes and terrains as their backyard. If you want, your guide can teach you some basics of map reading, fire making and other basic survival and camping skills. You can take part in everything on this trip. The second day we enjoy a breakfast together at our camping area before heading back to Kilpisjärvi. Lunch will be enjoyed on a way back.
All our trips are weather dependent. We can alter the routes and the dates based on the weather and on the group desires.
