Activities

  • Guided Group
  • Food

    • Breakfasts: Scandinavian in style including: tea or coffee, porridge, yoghurt, muesli, cheese, ham, and breads (flat pita style or rye). Picnic lunches: reindeer meat soup is popular, with cheese and bread or sandwiches. Evening meals: menus might include meatballs, reindeer stew, salmon, sausage, Swedish hash and cooked vegetables. After the meal, there are cordials and tap water, plus tea or coffee. Vegetarians: If you are a vegetarian please advise us when you book. A meat diet is the norm in Lapland; although vegetables are included, they are not necessarily a meal in themselves. A vegetarian should expect a fairly limited choice, and you may wish to supplement your diet with a few things from home. As the wilderness huts are remote, you may be asked to help with the preparation of the food or collection of the water. You may also on occasion be asked to help gather wood for the fire to speed up the process of relaxing in the evenings.

    We follow the 'Tobacco Trail' towards Sautosjarvi. Night in a traditional Sami tent on Lake Sautosjarvi (65 km).

    The longest day, following the 'Tobacco Trail' southwest towards Sautosjarvi (approx distance 70 km). Tonight we stay in a traditional Sami tent, or 'Lavi' that is situated on an island in the frozen lake Sautosjarvi. This is a real wilderness experience giving you a taste of how the nomadic people of these lands used to/and still do live. As it is not an insulated tent you will be required to gather fire wood and keep the fire (open fire in cooking tent, stove in sleeping tent) going throughout the night for warmth (but don't worry, the sleeping bags provided add a bit of modern comfort to this ancient way of living).
