Chill in Lapland: Winter Holiday

Embrace the Arctic Adventure: A Journey to the Heart of Winter

Imagine a place where the snow whispers secrets of ancient times, where the northern lights dance across the sky in a symphony of colors, and where the silence of the wilderness is a gateway to inner peace. This is the magic that awaits you in the pristine landscapes of Lapland. As you embark on a seven-day winter holiday with us, you’re not just taking a trip; you’re immersing yourself in an authentic experience that captures the real enchantment of the Arctic.

Our Winter Week Experience is designed to offer you the luxury of privacy and the richness of tradition. From the comfort of your own log cabin, nestled in the heart of nature, to the thrill of exploring the wilderness with a professional guide, every detail is curated to ensure that your Arctic adventure is as personal as it is unforgettable.

Discover the Serenity of Ice Fishing

There’s a profound tranquility in sitting on a frozen lake, surrounded by the hush of snow-covered landscapes, as you wait for a catch beneath the ice. Ice fishing is not just a pastime; it’s a reflection of the Finnish soul. With us, this experience is elevated to ‘Luxury Ice Fishing.’ We transport you to the finest fishing spots, provide a cozy tent with a wood-burning stove, and ensure that even in the midst of a snowstorm, your comfort is paramount. This is your chance to catch a glimpse into the heart of Finnish culture, and perhaps, catch your dinner too.

Whether you’re a seasoned angler or a curious novice, the simplicity of ice fishing is enchanting. With just an ice drill, a rod, and a worm, you’re set for an adventure that’s as much about the catch as it is about the meditative calm that comes with it. And when you do reel in your fish, the taste of your self-caught meal, fresh from the icy waters, is unparalleled.

Step into the World of Reindeer Herding

Reindeer are more than just iconic symbols of the North; they are an integral part of Lapland’s culture and history. During your stay, we offer you a unique opportunity to visit a local reindeer farm. Here, you’ll learn about the intricacies of reindeer husbandry from a herder and our English-speaking guide. This immersive experience allows you to connect with these gentle creatures, understand their significance, and capture memories that will last a lifetime.

As you gather around the campfire, sipping on traditional coffee, the stories of the herders will transport you into the world of the Sami people and their time-honored traditions. This activity is suitable for all ages and requires no physical exertion, making it a perfect family experience.

Conquer the Wilderness on Snowshoes

When the land is blanketed in deep snow, ordinary shoes simply won’t do. That’s where snowshoes come into play, allowing you to traverse the winter wonderland with ease. We take you to the enchanting Pallas-Yll√§stunturi National Park, where you’ll learn the art of snowshoeing and embark on a journey through untouched snowscapes. The park, with its ancient fells and breathtaking vistas, offers a glimpse into a world that once rivaled the Alps in grandeur.

As part of this adventure, we’ll enjoy a hearty lunch in a cozy hut by an open fire. For those who prefer to stay warm while others ascend the fells, the hut provides a welcoming refuge. This activity, lasting around 4-5 hours, does require some physical effort, but the reward is an unparalleled view of Lapland’s majestic beauty.

Witness the Spectacle of the Northern Lights

The Aurora Borealis is a natural marvel that many dream of witnessing. With us, your chances of seeing the northern lights are significantly heightened. Our secluded location, far from the light pollution of crowded tourist spots, offers a clear, unobstructed view of the night sky. Upon your arrival, we’ll teach you how to predict the northern lights, choosing the best evening to gather around a bonfire, indulge in Finnish pancakes, and hopefully, watch the auroras unfold.

The experience of seeing the northern lights is not just visual; it’s emotional. The silence of the Arctic night, punctuated only by the crackling of the fire, sets the stage for a powerful encounter with nature. And for photography enthusiasts, we’ll share tips on capturing the perfect shot of this celestial dance. Remember, while the northern lights are a frequent sight, they remain a natural phenomenon and their appearance cannot be guaranteed.

Embark on a Private Husky Safari

There’s something inherently magical about gliding through the snow, led by a team of enthusiastic huskies. On our private husky safari, you’ll take the reins of your own sled, learning to navigate the wintry terrain as the dogs eagerly pull you across forests and frozen landscapes. This intimate experience allows you to connect with these incredible animals and explore the wilderness without the distractions of larger, impersonal groups.

After the thrill of the ride, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and take photos with the huskies, warming up by the fire with a delicious lunch. Our private safari ensures a personalized adventure, where the focus is on quality and the bond between you and your sled team. Whether you’re an adrenaline seeker or simply looking for a unique way to experience the Arctic, this husky safari promises memories that will last a lifetime.
