Delight in Lapland: Exclusive Winter Retreat

Embrace the Arctic Adventure with Private Wilderness Excursions

Imagine a serene escape where the crisp, frosty air fills your lungs, and the untouched snow glistens under the ethereal glow of the aurora borealis. This is not just a dream; it’s the reality of an exclusive winter retreat in the heart of Lapland. With Wildmaker Lapland, we offer an intimate journey into the Arctic wilderness, where luxury meets adventure in a symphony of unforgettable experiences.

Our Winter Week Experience is tailored to those seeking a private and authentic connection with nature. From the comfort of a traditional log cabin, you’ll embark on a series of private tours, each designed to immerse you in the magic of the Arctic. Whether it’s the thrill of snowshoeing through Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park or the tranquility of luxury ice fishing, we ensure a personalized and unhurried adventure, far from the crowds and queues of standard tours.

Luxury Ice Fishing: A Tranquil Encounter with Finnish Tradition

Ice fishing is more than just a pastime in Finland; it’s a window into the soul of its people. With us, you’ll experience the serenity of sitting on a frozen lake, surrounded by the silence of nature, as you wait for a catch beneath the ice. Our luxury ice fishing adventure elevates this traditional activity, providing you with a warm, spacious tent equipped with a wood-burning stove, ensuring comfort even amidst a snowstorm.

We transport you to the finest fishing spots via snowmobile, ensuring an exclusive and enjoyable experience. The simplicity of the rod and worm, the patience of the wait, and the satisfaction of catching your own fish – these moments encapsulate the essence of the Finnish spirit, and we invite you to delve deep into this cultural gem.

Reindeer Farm Visit: Cultural Insights and Arctic Charm

A visit to a local reindeer farm offers a unique glimpse into the lives of the indigenous Sami people and their age-old traditions of reindeer husbandry. Accompanied by an English-speaking guide, you’ll learn about the annual cycle of reindeer herding and have the opportunity to feed these gentle creatures. This experience is suitable for all ages and requires no physical exertion, making it a perfect family activity.

After the tour, we gather around a campfire to enjoy traditional Finnish coffee and continue our conversation about this fascinating aspect of Lapland’s culture. It’s an intimate, educational, and heartwarming experience that brings you closer to the land and its people.

Wilderness Snowshoeing: Exploring the National Park’s Wonders

The deep snow of the Arctic wilderness is no match for a pair of snowshoes. With us, you’ll venture into the enchanting Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, learning to navigate the snowy landscape with ease. Our guided snowshoeing trek takes you through mystical forests and up to the breathtaking vistas of ancient fells, offering panoramic views that will leave you in awe.

Along the way, we’ll stop at a cozy hut to enjoy a lunch prepared over an open fire. For those who prefer to stay grounded, the warmth of the hut and the surrounding beauty provide a peaceful respite. This activity, lasting around 4-5 hours, does require some physical effort, but the reward is an unparalleled connection with nature’s grandeur.

Northern Lights Evening: A Celestial Spectacle

The dance of the Northern Lights across the Arctic sky is a spectacle that many dream of witnessing. Our secluded location, far from the glare of city lights, offers you an excellent chance to observe this natural wonder. We’ll teach you how to predict the aurora’s appearance and choose the optimal evening for viewing.

As we gather around a bonfire, indulging in Finnish pancakes and stories under the stars, the silence of the night is only broken by the crackle of the fire. If the conditions are right, the Northern Lights will make their grand entrance, and we’ll be there to capture the moment with a photography session, ensuring you take home more than just memories.

Husky Safari: The Thrill of the Wilderness

There’s a primal excitement in exploring the snowy expanse of Lapland with a team of eager huskies. Our private husky safari offers you the chance to lead your own sled, feeling the rush of the cold air and the joyous barks of your husky companions. With personalized guidance, you’ll learn the art of mushing, sharing the experience with a partner as you switch between driving and enjoying the ride.

Unlike crowded safaris, our private tours ensure a more intimate and high-quality adventure. You’ll have the opportunity to bond with the huskies, capture the moment with photos, and warm up by a fire with a hearty lunch. This exclusive experience, lasting about 2.5 hours, is a true highlight of any Arctic retreat.
