NEW 2025 Lumi Trip Announcement! Estonia and Finland


Did you know that “Lumi” is the Estonian and Finnish word for snow? I am thrilled to announce our new Tartu & Finlandia trip for February 2025! Experience the unique winter cultures in Estonia and Finland on Lumi’s special namesake trip.

The trip starts in the medieval city of Tartu, home to the Worldloppet ski marathon with the same name. It’s also where the Worldloppet Headquarters is based. Discover Estonia’s ski culture by skiing the gently rolling Tartu Worldloppet ski marathon (31 or 63 km), a popular right of passage amongst Estonians. The event starts at the Sports Center in Otepää, host of past FIS World Cup competitions, and continues through snowy pine forests to the finish area outside of Tartu. When you’re not skiing, step outside your hotel to explore Tartu’s culinary scene and historic neighborhoods.

After a long weekend in Estonia, take a scenic ferry across the Baltic Sea from Estonia's capital city, Tallinn, to the Finnish capital, Helsinki. Continue your journey about an hour further north to Lahti, home to over 180 km of ski trails, Finnish saunas and the Finlandia ski marathon await.

As a World Cup ski racer, racing in Lahti was one of my favorite World Cup venues. It’s close to town, making it a short walk from your hotel to the stadium, where the famous Finlandia ski marathon starts and finishes and where World Cup athletes will be racing in the Lahti Ski Games this weekend. Ski and skate other venues, including several frozen lakes, around Lahti which is known as the Gateway to Finnish Lakeland. Off the trail, visit Lahti’s Ski Museum, reward yourself with the traditional Finnish sauna experience, and taste Mustikkakeitto, their special blueberry soup.

Add to the experience by book-ending your trip with an optional stay in each country’s urban coastal capital: Tallinn and Helsinki.
