TRUE WILD aka HULLULLA: Authentic Finnish Adventure in Harsh Arctic

Do you dare to look into the adventure of the Northern wilderness? Do you dare to do it in the Finnish way? Yes? Try HULLULLA!

If you ever asked yourself, how could people survive in the frozen Arctic in the past, join HULLULLA tour to find out. We will tell you about the real Arctic and Lapland and teach you how to survive here. This includes some of the techniques used by the Finnish army. In addition to teaching you the actual skills, we will also share the stories from Finnish history and culture with you as well as the necessary knowledge about surrounding nature.

During the adventure, we will build a nature version of Finnish laavu. After we will finish building the laavu, we will learn different ways how to make a fire in nature. Once we have mastered it, we will reward ourselves with some snacks and warm drinks.

The full-day version of HULLULLA includes also an ice-fishing experience and a traditional Finnish sauna. Imagine you are lost in Finnish wilderness and everything around is frozen? How will you get some food? Ice fishing may be your only option and we will teach you how to do it. After the whole day in nature, you can warm up in a sauna. The bravest ones can also dip into a frozen lake.

Although HULLULLA is pretty crazy, of course, we make sure you are safe in every way!!
