Nature is always on

A sudden snow storm will quickly make you unable to see even your own hands. If you know how to handle the demanding conditions of the tundra, this amazing experience is something to revel in.

On the tundra, man really is small. Here, nature commands respect. But don’t be afraid. If you are less than confident about your wilderness survival skills, just enjoy a warm night by the fire in your Tundrea chalet, listening to the storm!
