LAPLAND'S NATURE - Meet, dream and learn

Rovaniemi, Finland

Experience hosted by Christoph

3 hours, Hosted in English, German and French

What you'll do

We'll go for a walk in the beautiful Lapland forest during which you will learn some secrets of the nordic nature. We go to a fireplace where I will show you the basics of making a fire. I will tell you about plants and trees, and the incredible nature we have here up north. We will enjoy the warmth of the fire and prepare some tea out of wild herbs collected on the way. We will also share some sausages and cookies.

With this tour you will learn about the nordic forest, it's animals and plants. You will hear stories from everyday life up in the arctics and the challenges living far North brings to its habitants. You will also learn some basics of survival and you can ask your guide more about summer/winter survival in the arctics as well as reindeer herding or about native Sami cultures.

Relaxing and fun time is guaranteed by the fireplace. You don't need to be prepared, you can join with what you have. Path is well walked and if needed you can borrow some winter clothing for the tour (request beforehand so the guide knows to have the right sizes with).

Long before I became a Lapland wilderness guide , I already had the passion of exploring wild nature. I traveled Siberia, Alaska and Scandinavia and learned all the skills needed to live in remote places. I love to share my knowledge and life experience to inspire people and make the world a better place. I spent as much time outdoors as I can. Discovering new places and searching for the northern lights at night.
I created my own small scale tour company focused on quality outdoor experiences for small groups.
If you are interested I can organize custom tours.

I speak also French German and Spanish.

Très bonne balade avec Chris qui est francophone, ce qui permet de discuter de sujets plus approfondis. L'endroit est magnifique et on sent que Chris aime vraiment l'aventure, les animaux, la culture lapone et la forêt. Je recommande !

We had a wonderful morning with Chris snow shoeing through the arctic forest. He was really knowledgeable on the flora and fauna and took us to a local hut where he set up a fire. The glogi tea, kebabs and sweet buns were great.

Chris was a really welcoming person during the whole tour and shared his knowledge on the way. Nice hiking in the local forest of Rovaniemi. Definitely recommended!

遠くの山奥まで行きChrisに連れて行ってもらい、美しい景色と素晴らしい空気の中でいただくソーセージとホットティー、クッキーは最高でした。Chrisはとてもいい人で沢山のことを私たちに教えてくれました!また来たらぜひもう一度したいと思う体験でした!

Die Wanderung die wir zusammen unternommen haben war super, die Sonne gerade aufgegangen als wir auf dem Berg ankamen. Chris hat uns viel über die Natur und Kultur Lappland/Finnlands erzählt,was sehr interessant war. Wir haben Feuer gemacht, Tee getrunken und Würstchen gegrillt, es war toll :) Danke für den schönen Tag.

整体体验还不错,chris很热情,为我们讲解了不少东西,了解了他的生活,和罗瓦涅米的一些事情。不过我们是冲着雪地BBQ去的,他给我们提供的食物太少啦。
