Dear Shaolin family and visitors,

here is information about the Shaolin Winter Camp 2018 venue and accommodations:

We are happy to host the Winter Camp at the beautiful and exotic Lapland. If you have never visited Finland in winter, we warmly recommend taking the possibility now!

The Finnish Lapland is quite different from the northern area in Sweden and Norway (Finnish Lapland borders Sweden, Norway, Russia and the Baltic Sea). There are no mountains as in the neighbouring countries, but vast arctic hills, with reindeers, wolves and other arctic animals.

This Winter Camp is held in Inari, a town high over the arctic circle. The village of Inari is Finland’s northernmost holiday resort.

You can reach Inari by air, arriving to the airport of Ivalo. Ivalo is a town near Inari.

There is a very good possibility to witness the majestic Northern Lights - the Aurora Borealis.

The course venue Vasatokka is located 10km from the village of Inari. Vasatokka is a resort with hostel-rate accommodations for those who wish to experience the true arctic nature, with very affordable prices.

Vasatokka offers accommodation in cabins and in dormitories.
For those arriving with a budget this is a good option.

You can visit Vasatokka here:

For those who wish to stay in a 3 star hotel, the Hotel Inari is a good choice.

We are happy to help with your accommodations, and ensure a reasonable price for your stay.

Please take note that January is a very busy tourist month in Lapland, so we strongly recommend booking your stay as early as possible!


We hope to see many of you in 2018,
