    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure you have plenty of layers,in 4 days the temperature varied from -1 to -27 !! Gloves and hats are essential.Kids especially get cold quickly, also wet clothes will make you really cold so change out of wet socks or gloves asap!

    Photo Equipment: Keep cameras inside your jacket they really hate the cold also you will notice the cold zaps battery power so keep spares to hand.

    It can get very cold

    by Jasoninlondon Written Feb 9, 2005

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In winter it can get very cold, so pack lots of warm, wind proof clothes. Even if the temperature is not too low the wind can make it much colder.

    Thermal suits can be hired at some of the shops in Levi that are very warm.

    Good snow proof boots are also useful as there seems to be deep fresh powder everywhere, and normal shoes just don't help too much.

    Cold!!

  • Warm Clothing

    by jasoncheryl Written Dec 27, 2004

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring warm clothes and extra socks but don't overpack. We used a package deal with Espirit and they provided snow suites, boots, gloves, and hats to keep us warm.

    Photo Equipment: Batteries don't last long due to the extreme cold weather. Keep camera next to your body when not in use so their temperature will stay up and thus the batteries will last longer.

    You can do your dishes in the river

    Luggage and bags: If you planning hiking (in summer), not too heavy staff, it is nice to feel light and you usually do not need to carry water with you.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good shoes is a must, even in the summer you will need a good jacket as it getting very cold at night, it has happened that our toothpaste was just about freezing in the morning. Also recommending a thick leather jacket or so, that the mosquitoes cannot bite through because they will get through your normal cloths, jeans and wind jackets.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: In the local stores and gas station you can buy mosquitoes repellent etc. You will surely need it in the summer and just for the information, the mosquitoes here are twice the size of mosquitoes which are for instance in the southern Europe region.

    Photo Equipment: What ever you have, take with you. You will never regret it. Don't plan to buy additional items in Finland, they cost more here, but films are rather cheap. Buy the films already in Helsinki or the south of Finland, it might cost you more in the north and surely will cost you more in the Norwegian side.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Good sleeping bags; we always go to camp on the higher mountains in the Tunturi region or in the Norwegian side. The mosquito?s doe?s not like the cold and then you can sleep batter at night and get back to the valleys & rivers in the daytime.

    Be prepared for the cold

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: be prepared for the cold... wear warm clothes and you are able to enjoy what the place has to offer to you...
    wear many layers. one very warm sweater is not as good as many layers of normal ones... long underwear, the thermal net one is very good and will keep you warm…
    its better if your boots are a size bigger rather than fit right...
