There are multiple reasons to join Border to Border ski and here we have listed five of them. This event is something you should experience at least once in a lifetime, but be careful, you might want to come back over and over again!
Border to Border ski is the best way to meet people all over the world with the same passion for skiing as you have. For example, in 2019 we had skiers from 22 countries! Several skiers have said that during the journey they have made some lifetime friends. Border to Border sure is an unordinary experience, which you can memorize after years with your fellow skiers. In addition, the atmosphere between the skiers have always been good. If your glide does not work, you can be sure that someone is there to help you out. Tips are shared between skiers without hesitation!
There are more reindeers than people on your way across Finland. There are only two persons per sq. km in Finnish Lapland, where part of your track leads you to. This is why the nature in Finland is truly pristine. You are able to ski kilometers after kilometers and see only beautiful Finnish pinewoods, swamps and fells. Border to Border ski is an relaxing experience for those seeking peaceful, pristine nature.
The authentic atmosphere of Border to Border ski stems from the volunteers who make the whole event possible every year. To assure that each skier gets to the accommodation safely, a lot of effort is needed. There are several service points during your ski every day and the local people living in the villages nearby run those points. They prepare your lunch and welcome you with a smile. The different language is hardly a problem, they will help you the best they can. Moreover, also your guides and the guys driving the snowmobile after you, are all volunteering. And they love to do it! We do not offer you a luxury holiday with fancy restaurants but a genuine hospitality with a big heart.
Guarantee of snow
Year 2020 is already the 37th for Border to Border and every year there has been enough snow to organize the event. Of course, the amount of snow differs year to year, but all in all March is a great time to come to Finland for a skiing holiday. In fact, people in Northern Finland have their own national skiing holiday at the same time as Border to Border! Normally, the amount of snow in March differs from 60cm to 1m.
Experience the above ordinary
The Northern Finland has magic. In addition the ski, you may experience all sort of amazing things. If you are lucky, you may witness northern lights. March is one of the best seasons to see them. However, if you are not lucky with the northern lights, we can guarantee that you will experience Finnish sauna (with some Finnish experts), see the beautiful winter wonderland and eat more pickled cucumbers and raisins than ever!
