Norwide is a Finnish travel agency located in the heart of Hossa National Park. We organize adventure trips with a focus on connecting to the nature around us for small groups or independent travellers. We are a team of passionate experts and professional tour leaders in love with the Arctic world.
Our local knowledge and expertise enables us to provide authentic adventure trips and unique opportunities like living with locals in the wilderness. We offer adventure activities through all the seasons including dog sledding, nordic skiing and snowshoeing trips; fishing, canoeing and hiking adventures.
Norwide is comitted to:
1. Environmental protection
We venture into some of the most remarkable places in the world and
offer trips which are actually in Hossa National park; we feel it is our duty to protect and
preserve these environments. We follow the 'Leave No Trace' outdoor ethical
code and take our Sustainable and Responsible Tourism policies very
seriously. We support small local companies rather than mass tourism
so our wilderness adventures involve using basic traditional
accommodation options. We work in partnership with Metsähallitus to protect Finnish waters and forests - an exclusive
agreement enables us to use the roads of the natural park of Hossa. Our kennel
is cleaned daily and subject to regular veterinary. In addition to this, we work with MyClimate to offset all
carbon emissions produced by snowmobiling activities and transfers.
2. The quality of our trips
Our small group sizes (no more than 12 people) enable us to offer high quality services and to preserve the integrity of the remote places we visit. All of our routes, accommodation, restaurants and partners have been carefully chosen and are frequently inspected to guarantee their safety and quality. We update and adjust our programmes regularly taking into account your comments and suggestions. You are in safe hands with our trip leaders, all experienced, all professionals and all enrolled on our continuous training programme, we can't fault our guides. We also provide and monitor all of the technical equipment needed for our activities; we are proud of our unwavering focus on safety.
3. Fair prices
We never use middlemen, we are based in Finland enabling us to trade directly, support locals and ensure fair prices for everyone. Departures are guaranteed from 4 or 5 participants at no extra cost (excluding specific requests) and we guarantee no nasty surprises or unexpected additional expenses. Our travel agents will be in touch with you in the run up to your adventure and all of our trip details are updated regularly with what is included/not is clearly outlined.
