True wilderness experience away from madding crowd with a guide who really knows his stuff

We wanted to experience the beauty of wild Finland like explorers, on our own as far as possible and definitely no tour groups. 

Our guide Valtteri found us a chalet hut owned by a local in the middle of the woods to stay in with a roaring log fire out in the sticks. He took us on a whiteout hill climb in snow shoes safely above the tree line to the summit and safely back down again. We were the only 3 people on the slopes. He pointed out animal tracks, birds and the silhouettes of reindeer that we would otherwise have missed. 

He took us ice fishing on a frozen lake, dragging our equipment on a sledge with reindeer hide through virgin forest snow, made a fire on the lake and let us dig our own ice holes and fish, explaining the best techniques, whilst bringing us hot coffee. He regaled us with his knowledge of nature, animals and stars. 

He cooked for us in a Finnish Kota, brought reindeer soup he had made himself at home, and took us off piste on a fast paced snow mobile trek to the top of a mountain with magical views and husky sledging, ensuring that we met the dogs, whom he knew personally and by name. 

On New Year’s Eve he took us to meet two Finnish couples and we celebrated the New Year eating pancakes round a roaring fire with locals watching the northern lights. And the day before we left he invited us to his home to meet his wife and young son, he cooked salmon for us in his own smoker – a lovely, personal touch. 

Nothing was too much trouble and we enjoyed both his engaging warm personality and professional expertise. We had an unforgettable taste of real Finland, not the typical tourist chocolate box experience, but a wild natural time with in a stunning landscape that can be ruthless if you don’t have an experienced guide like Valtteri on board who knows his onions and can push the envelope in this environment yet ensure you are totally safe. We enjoyed it so much we shall be returning, in summer this time for whitewater rafting and canoeing and there is only one person in Muonio for us!

Lapland expectations exceeded thanks to Wildmaker Lapland

After having had compared numerous options for our family trip we decided to go with Wildmaker Lapland.
Right from the beginning the communication was excellent and our questions and wishes, also regarding nutrition, had been fully considered.

The whole experience is very intimate as you are sharing the time with your private guide. Starting right away with a warm welcome your host picks up at the airport.
All of transport is arranged for you, warm clothes provided, and supermarkets can be visited every day.

A highlight is indeed your private cottage. The fireplace creates a cosy atmosphere, and the kitchen provides all basic equipment to cook yourself some dinner.
The private sauna gets hot enough to almost melt you away briefly before you may roll in the snowy landscape to cool down.
The cottage is located truly remote. Crowded hot spots are distant, so you can fully relax and disconnect from the elsewise for some people too vibrant touristy hot spots like Levi – despite being still in easy reach by car.
The views out of the cottage down the valley to the mountains (you are going to hike during your trip) is unique and makes every snowy morning a special experience. We also had a private hiking trail right behind the cottage.

Every ingredient of the tour, the ice fishing, reindeer tour, northern light experience (hot drinks and delicious pan cakes), hiking experience (amazing views) and the huskie trip had been excellent.
All the experiences are private, so adjusted to your needs and pace.
This made especially the huskie tour unique, as you had been involved, voluntarily, to get the dogs ready and feed them afterwards. Also, the trail itself is among routes you will not see regular tourist agencies with big groups.

Our expectations had been way exceeded and we can fully recommend this experience to anyone heading to Lapland winter wonderland.

Thanks a lot Valterri!

Our week in Lapland

Amazing week in Lapland made unforgettable by Valtteri. His knowledge and skill allowed us to experience this magnificent landscape close up and not to feel like a tourist. Knowing he lives with his young wife and son here all year round means every penny we spent was going to support them and the local community.

Perfect winter vacation

We had a wonderful winter vacation in a very cozy cottage. The program was great, diverse and it was always catered to our individual wishes.

Valtteri is very professional, competent and supported us always with all our requests.

The week was perfect to recover from the day-to-day and big city stress.

Many thanks Valtteri and best regards

Wonderful Winter Holiday in Finland with Wildmaker Lapland

Our family (grandmother, two young men and a seven year old little boy) had wonderful six days in a very well equipped, very cozy and warm cabin, surrounded by snow and forest.
Valtteri managed our experience with a lot of love, professionalism and personal commitment. He has really made every activity a very special experience for us.
Ice fishing, the husky tour, the Northern Lights evening, a trip to the reindeer farm, the snowshoe hike… Every activity of the program was tailored specifically to our needs and always had been a lot of fun! And it’s almost unbelievable, but true, when I say: Every event was really even more beautiful than we could have imagined!
A very experienced, dedicated tour guide, impressive, wonderful experiences in nature, a journey with delicious food and drinks next to the fire and all in an always relaxed, wonderfully calm, wintry atmosphere! It really doesn`t get any better!!! Valtteri, thank you very much!!!

Wildmaker watching northern lights with skis
Our Story

It happened many years ago, I was skiing in a forest in Lapland. There was a lot of new snow and the Northern lights were dancing on top of me. It was completely silent. You could not here a single sound. No engines, no people, no birds. I had never experienced complete silence and I don´t think many people have. You always hear something. It was such a beautiful moment and a strong feeling for me just being there surrounded by the nature. That moment started my journey away from the hectic, noisy city life towards a more peaceful and quiet life in Lapland.

My name is Valtteri Immonen. I live in Muonio, Lapland. I am originally from the south of Finland very close to the capital Helsinki. During the summers of my childhood I always spent the summer months in our summer cottage which is surrounded by nature in the countryside. I always went for adventures in the forests, swimming and fishing on the lake all day long. I remember it being so peaceful and happy life. I was already building my relationship with the nature.

As a young man I travelled around the world. Everywhere. I lived for a year in Brazil and Malaysia and I was always travelling. Today I am happy and very grateful for my years travelling abroad. They shaped me as a person and taught me about differencies in people and cultures that I can make use of in my work today.
I had never really travelled in my own country and I had never been to Lapland and it was the place I really wanted to see. It sounded so different from the cities in the south. I found this one job ad from the internet. Before I was even called for the interview I took my bike and booked a train to Kemi from where it took a few days and about 350km to cycle to Muonio where the job was. I called the manager from the
lobby and asked if they would interview me. And I got the job!

Then, one day I was skiing in the forest, and I experienced the complete silence. Eventhough the situation was very different, the feeling I had reminded me so much of my childhood in our summer cottage. This transformative experience is something I want to offer my guests as well. Many of them have a busy life in big cities and I wish to show them the peacefulness of the nature that can have effects that can change lives completely to the better as it did for me.
