Questions and Answers
We organize active holidays in the pure, untouched nature in eastern Finland.

1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?

The company was founded in March 2000. The owner Urpo Heikkinen graduated from an international wilderness guide course in Kuru, Finland and after that founded Upitrek.

2. What is your company's mission?

We want to offer active tours in small groups in the heart of Finnish nature in concordance with the nature.

3. What does your company specialize in?

Our company is specialized in unmotorized treks in eastern Finland. In winter we offer eg. cross-country ski and snowshoeing tours and in summer hiking, cycling and canoeing tours, multiactivity holidays, family holidays, self-drive programmes and school camps.

4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?

The founder and the owner of the company is Mr. Urpo Heikkinen. Originally he is a builder of education but in the end of 1990´s it was hard to find that work in eastern Finland. Urpo didn't want move to southern Finland where he might have found a work in construction industry, so he decided to join an international wilderness guide course of 1 year in 1999. After graduating he founded Upitrek to employ himself. First tours were organized in winter 2000 and since then the business has grown significantly.

5. What is your most popular travel package and why?

The most popular travel package is "Ski tour on the Russian border". It was our very first tour and it has been the most popular all the time. One of the reasons may be that there are not so many such cross-country ski tours available in Finland nor elsewhere in Europe. We can usually offer very good conditions for cros-country skiing.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?

We are happy to have many clients who have participated our tours several times so we believe we have offered them good travel experiences. Especially many ski tour clients return from year to take part in our ski tours. We have also had clients that have participated a winter tour and then return in summer or vice versa. On our web pages it is possible to read client testimonials.
