Finnskogen is one of few locations in Norway where the wolf can be heard howling. Join us for an overnight stay in the great outdoors – a unique and magical fullmoon adventure in Finnskogen!
This winter adventure will take you to Finnskogen, the favourite haunt of Norway’s four big predators. Our camp is set in the wilderness, by a marsh in the forest, where the night sky is so dark that you can see the Milky Way – and even the Northern Lights when they travel this far south. We meet at an agreed location and walk together to where the campfire is already burning. If required, pick-up in Elverum can be arranged.
Your accommodation for the night is in 5-person wood-burner heated glamping tents. As you enjoy a hot drink by the campfire, you get to know what the next hours will bring. We then take you on a guided snowshoe walk in the area around the camp, and with a bit of luck we find tracks and traces of wolf or other animals.
In the evening you are served a meal based on local produce, and you get to experience the magical atmosphere sitting by a campfire as the moon lights up the snow-clad forest. Perhaps we get to hear the wolves howl at a safe distance. Gathered around the fire, you will learn about the elk, bear, lynx and glutton, as well as birds of prey nesting in the area. We also talk about the area’s unique Forest Finn culture and its military history.
It is up to you whether to stay awake all night or let us wake you up if the wolves begin to howl.
In the early morning, the wilderness host will ensure that your wood burner is lit. You are then served a hot breakfast before we guide you back.
