Norwide is a Finnish travel agency located in the heart of the natural park of Hossa. We organize trips and holidays adventures 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 in Hossa natural 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 no-frills back-to-basics 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. Our professional tour leaders are highly qualified and experienced plus we provide all technical equipment needed for our activities. An unwavering focus on safety is at the heart of all of our trips and we are always reviewing our routes taking into account your comments and suggestions.
3. Fair prices
Our prices are tailored to our quality criteria and we never use middlemen so we can ensure fairprices for everyone. Departures are guaranteed from 4 or 5 participants at no extra cost (excluding specific requests) and we promise 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.
