All of Nordic Visitor’s Lapland travel packages should be considered adventure travel on account of being operated in the Arctic during sometimes extreme weather conditions and with the use of live animals for many excursions. For this reason, those booking a travel package in Lapland (except for those considered family travel packages) should consider themselves at least moderately physically fit and comfortable engaging in activities that are considered adventurous or strenuous.
Some things to keep in mind:
There will be snow and ice on the ground, sometimes making it difficult to walk.
No luggage handling services will be available. You must be prepared and able to carry your own luggage in snowy conditions.
Accommodations will be simple in comparison to what you’d find in major urban centres.
WC facilities encountered during excursions may be unheated outhouses without running water.
Reindeer and huskies run very fast. Those interested in participating in either a reindeer or husky safari should keep this in mind.
Some snowmobile safaris may require you to drive in the dark. Those interested in participating in snowmobile safaris should keep this in mind.
By law, those interested in driving a snowmobile must be able to present a valid driver’s license.
The safety of our travellers is our top priority at Nordic Visitor. We reserve the right to change or cancel departures if we feel the conditions will jeopardize the safety of our customers.

Activities & Guides
This is a self-guided tour with scheduled guided excursions and activities. All accommodations and included activities and services (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor in close co-operation with trusted local suppliers. You will not have a dedicated guide for the duration of your time in Lapland, but can expect a different qualified guide for each planned excursion. You are responsible for making your way to the specified meeting point for the start of each excursion. The time between scheduled excursions and activities will be free-time.
Wilderness Cabins in Kurravaara
Each wilderness cabin at the camp in Kurravaara has a private entrance, wood-fired stove, shower, sauna, toilet and a small terrace. The cabins are also equipped with refrigerator, water boiler and a simple set of tableware for preparing breakfast or other light meals. Lunch and dinner are delivered by a local guide.

You will also be provided with Nordic Visitor’s 24/7 emergency helpline phone number where you can always reach a Nordic Visitor representative during your time in Lapland.
Please note: It takes time to make all the arrangements for a complete travel package. The travel consultant must book or reserve each included service individually with each supplier and personalize each itinerary accordingly. For this reason, we encourage our clients to book as far in advance as possible to ensure that your preferred travel dates, accommodation class and additional activities are available.
