Do you want to leave the stress of everyday life behind for a while, and participate in a genuine nature experience? Join us on an overnight extraordinary adventure in the arctic wilderness!
Joined by an experienced guide you set off on snowmobile across frozen water, vast marches and through snow-covered forests with Camp Pounojokki as your destination. The camp is located along the Torne River and consists of three rustic cabins and a wood-fired sauna. Here, beyond electricity and cell phone coverage you get to experience the true arctic wilderness!

When you arrive you help your guide to prepare the camp for you overnight stay: You carry food and water, make a fire in the stove, and prepare everything for the rest of you stay. For dinner you gather around the heart of the camp: The campfire! Your dinner will be based on local ingredients and cooked over the open fire. You are more than welcome to help with the cooking as well if you want to. After dinner the sauna is ready to warm you up after a long day outside. Warm, full, and satisfied you will sleep well in the cozy cabin.

On the second day we begin with breakfast and then you are ready for another active day in nature!

What the second day entails depends on the weather, but in general you will start the day with a morning hike on snowshoes. During the hike you have a chance to see wild animals, or just enjoy the quiet, untouched nature. Followed by a warming lunch, either back at the camp our out in the forest, we pack up the camp and once again set off on our snowmobiles. Your guide has laid out a good route for your specific occasion and on the way back you will stop at a suitable watercourse or lake to try ice fishing!

After a full day out in nature you return to Icehotel with lots of new experiences and memories to last a lifetime!
