Accommodation details
Basecamp
You will spend 7 nights at Basecamp Oulanka, this wilderness camp is a lovely complex of wooden buildings offering cosy accommodation overlooking a pristine lake and bordered by the Oulanka National Park. All rooms are moderately sized family rooms with a bathroom, twin beds for adults and a mezzanine floor for 2 children.

Family of two - All family groupings of two will be put into either one or twin room. You will have to pay a supplement for twin occupancy of £110 per room.
Family of three or four - Unless you request otherwise we will reserve a twin room (with a mezzanine - 4 beds in total).
Family of five or more - For larger families, we will provide 2 twin rooms (supplement of £110 applies for less than 3 people in a room) as standard.
Whilst we will do our very best to ensure that families are roomed close together (in some cases, we can arrange adjoining rooms), we can't guarantee this. Most family holidays occur during peak season and we sometimes have little to no control over where you will be put. You need to come prepared for this. Please note all prices are based on a family of 3 or 4 (adults or children) sharing a room. The supplement for single or twin occupancy is £110 per room.
