About
We are a family owned company offering authentic experiences in the pure nature of Finnish Lapland. Based in Ylläs, next to a beautiful National Park, near Kittilä airport, we take small groups on exclusive tours by snowshoes, skis or bikes - in the summer we go trekking, biking or canoeing. Here in Lapland the air is still pure, the water is drinkable from streams and you can relax in the extreme silence of the wilderness.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A sporty adventure in a beautiful snow covered forest. We warmly recommend Joona as a cheerful guide.

During our 1 week stay in Lapland we (4 people from Germany) booked a private snowshoe night tour with Pihka Outdoors. Joona was a fabulous guide and everything was well organized. We walked on a private path and felt like being pushed into the movie of ‚cronicles of Narnia‘. Trees full of snow looking like little creatures, untouched nature , snow glittering like diamonds and pearls. Joona was not tired to look out for northern lights which we finally did. We will be back and would 100 percent again book a tour with pihka . It was an unforgettable awesome experience.

We were a group of seven adults (age range 30 - 74 years) and one 2 year old toddler. Most of us were Irish first timers in Lapland. We all went canoeing with Joona and his assistant on the Lake Pallasjärvi, and it really was a great adventure, since most of us had never done it before. We were very well informed about the gear before the trip and were taught how to paddle safely. We also went hiking in Pallastunturi with him, and later he gave us a fine lesson about how to take photographs of the Northern lights. Joona is an unbelievably skillful wilderness guide: he is self-possessed, convivial, an excellent organizer, a very pleasant person to have conversations with, and he treated each of us so well. He made us feel safe and happy, and we learned so many things about the Northern nature from him. We'll cherish the fond memories and hope to go back some day and have more great adventures with Pihka Outdoors!

After a winter experience with Pihka Outdoors, we decided to come back to Lapland in summer and do a trekking with Joona.
Everything was awesome, we had all the info in advance and Joona, more than a guide, was a great friend during the path. The organisation was brilliant, we just had to wear our hiking clothes, put the backpack on our shoulders and experience wild Lapland!
Joona has a great experience, he explained us a lot, from flowers and plants to birds, he taught us how to start a fire and told as a lot of stories about his adventures.
He is also a great chef, preparing us all the meal, even if he was worried of having two Italians guest, everything was more than good!
We saw great landscapes, reindeers were with us all the time, food was great and sleeping in the tents in the middle of the forest was awesome. We also had the chance to see northern lights, but not so strong since the sky at night was still bright.
We definitely enjoyed any moment of our five days, thank you Pihka Outdoor, we will come back again!

My father and I had spent a wonderful week hiking with Joona in the Kilpisjärvi region in all the three countries. Even though we only had expecience with day hikes and minimal experience in the Arctic, Joona has throroughly prepared us for the 5-day hike, teaching us how to use and wear all our gear professionally.

The best part of this adventure was that by the end of the first day we were already a team, and the friendliness and openness of Joona has created a really cozy atmosphere for the entire journey. And what a journey it was!

We had it all, mountains, lakes, swamps, moraine, birch groves, waterfalls, perfect spots for our tents (which Joona let us choose ourselves), a cozy hiking cabin, walking on hiking routes and walking in the uncharted wilderness. We even had some bushcrafting sessions. This was the most amazing adventure I've ever had, it was perfect!

Last weekend, my family and I went on a few trips with Minttu and Joona. Since we did not have a lot of time, they were able to work around our already busy schedule. It was all very personal with a great service!!
They did everything to create the best Lapland experience for us. Joona and Minttu know a lot about the area and how to survive in the wild. They create such a nice atmosphere with their great stories but they also tell you a lot of background information. They are very easily to communicate with and it is almost like that just ‘a local’ picks you up from the hotel for a great trip. They make sure you wear the proper clothes and if you get cold they’ll make sure you’ll get warm again.
Joona and Minttu made great pictures of us whilst fatbiking but also during icefishing. Thanks a lot again for the great trips, we enjoyed it so much! I would highly recommend them to everybody.
