We start our tour from the Russian border crossing station in tiny town of Salla, just north of polar circle in Eastern Finland. In eight days we ski cross Finland’s magic Lapland and reach Swedish border in town of Muonio. Next six days we enjoy the scenery of Swedish Lappland and cross border to Norway in Riksgransen. Last day we ski down to North-Atlantic coast, near city of Narvik.
In finish we call this tour: Pohjolan poikki hiihto (PPH).

In total 14 days we ski ca. 800km. Daily etappes are ca 50-70km and we ski mainly along snowmobile tracks, to where a skitrack is driven same day by local snowmobilist. Some days we pass skiresorts and can utilize their permanent skitracks (in perfect condition). Free technic skiing is possible in some parts of the route.

Our service van/coach moves your luggage to next accommodation and takes care of group’s daily breaks. You carry just your light daily backpack and enjoy 100% cross-country skiing in Lapland scenery.

For accommodation we use mainly hotel standard rooms (2-4 persons in a room), but also holiday apartments/cottages (4-6 persons) or similar might be used for couple of nights.
