It is my first time to try skiing, the tour guide Uhoney is talkative and patients to teach us the basic skill on skiing, and then the exciting backcountry skiing adventure begin. We skiing in the forest and take many nice photos. And then we skiing in the frozen lake. The view is fantastic. We are sweating from begining, and get a bit cold when the body get wet. a camp fire is ready for us to keep warm and barbecue the sausage. We have fun and excited during the tour. Highly recommended this tour

Guide Juhani was great! His enthusiasm about the nature, the (sun) light and his love for Lapland worked for us quite well. He took very amazing pictures. We loved doing an active activity, like backcountry skiing tour. As a family of four, we have (down hill) skiing experience, but never went cross-country skiing and also never through deep fresh snow. We were happy to a longer route, but you can determine your own speed or length of the tour, depending on your experience and wishes. If we go back to Lapland, this activity 'backcountry skiing advanture' will be #1 in our list of things we want to do.

The activity maybe costs a bit more than with other companies, but its because these guys are professionals. From entering the office to returning everything went smooth and without any complications. They know we are tourists, so they provide all the equipment that is necessary in these extreme conditions (boots, overalls, gloves, warm hats, backpacks, hot beverages and bbq food for the break), and they even take photos of you. What I really liked is that they are not wasteful and that they really take care of the nature. Loved every bit of it!

Thank you for taking the time to write a comment. It is very nice to hear that your experience with us has been good! Providing the clothes sure is something that make the tours more enjoyable for some of our guests, since the winter days can go very, very cold. Thank you for joining us and we wish you all the best for the future!

I did the Backcountry Skiing Adventure with Markus and the Korouoma Frozen Waterfalls Expedition with Juho. Both were outstanding.

Juho took us to various locations in the canyon to see the different falls. He also pointed out interesting features in the forest along the way and explained how such features were formed. He was very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly, and made it a wonderful day.

Markus was fantastic on the skiing trip. He took us to a beautiful forest area by a river. He was really good explaining how to do the skiing and helped us to practice before we really got going on the trail. He gave lots of information about cross country skiing and the challenges in different conditions. He was very attentive to safety. There were lots of lovely locations for photographing.

I was totally satisfied with both tours and would absolutely go with Beyond Arctic again. Highly recommended!

We feel that it is important to give a lot information about the places where we go to so that the customers will have a good understanding of the experienced area. It is also great to know that you have felt safe and enjoyed the time on the skiing trip. The cross country skiing in the forest can be such a new experience to many participant so safety is super important.

Me and my friend had no experience in skiing but would like to give it a try and also appreciate the nature in Lapland. We informed the company and they arranged a beginner route for us. It was on Christmas day, so it was just us two and one guide. We were very lucky with the weather and saw some amazing scenery. Juho taught us some basics and was taking good care of us. He also took some nice photos of us and the view and sent to us, which was great. I would definitely recommend them and would like to go back and challenge myself with a more difficult route :)

We had Maiju as a guide and she was amazing! She took beautiful pictures and explained the theory behind the northern lights! The ski adventure was amazing to do, we went downhill through the woods and it was beautiful! Even though we weren’t lucky enough to see the northern lights, it was one of the best experiences! I would definitely recommend everyone to try this!!! An amazing experience with amazing photos afterwards
