Introduction to the polar travel in Lapland.
Trip ideal to have a first contact with the wintery Arctic. Seven days of walking on skis near the Arctic Circle. During the voyage we will sleep in snow shelters, tents or huts, learning to live at 30 degrees below zero in a place where the Northern Lights are not an isolated phenomenon.
In our journey we become familiar with the equipment and expedition techniques and Arctic survival. Methods of protection against the cold, Eskimo techniques of orientation, navigation compass, GPS positioning systems, fish in the sea ice and other knowledge that may be useful in later expeditions. Also, if wind conditions permit we will learn the basics of polar progress on skis hauled by kites.

A quiet place of the coast, near the Finnish village called Ii, will be our starting point. Skiing through the Baltic Sea and camping on the sea ice or in huts in some of the many islands that dot this frozen sea we will reach our goal, the Lapish city of Kemi, situated on the northern edge of the frozen Gulf of Bothnia.
