For the winter season, Exodus Travels is introducing 12 new winter adventures to its 2017 catalog. For clients with a penchant for adventure travel, the new offerings range from cross-country skiing in Iceland to dogsledding in Findland.
Cycle through Lapland’s Oulanka National Park by the chunky, extra grip tires of their fat bikes. Accommodations for the eight-day tour include remote wilderness cabins with wood-burning fireplaces and traditional saunas.
Travelers can cross-country ski in several snowy locations. In Iceland, the weeklong adventure begins at a ski area near Reykjavik and heads north to Akureyri, a small settlement that sits at the head of Iceland’s longest fjord. The Jura Cross-Country Ski Tour takes guests to one of France's top cross-country skiing destinations, ending in Les Rousses, a traditional French winter resort. Avid skiers can travel from Finland to Russia, following new tracks made each day exclusively for Exodus’ small group.
In a remote part of Finnish Lapland, expert guides lead travelers deep into the wilderness in hopes of seeing the Northern Lights. The new Aurora adventure includes an interactive day spent at a local reindeer herder’s farm where guests learn to throw a Lappish lasso and take a reindeer sleigh ride.
Or, travelers can “mush” their own team of Alaskan or Siberian huskies across Lapland, spending two nights in remote wilderness cabins close to the Arctic Circle.
