Embrace Lapland: Private Winter Experience

Discover the Magic of Wilderness Snowshoeing

Imagine stepping into a winter wonderland where the snow glistens under the Arctic sky, and the only sound is the crunch of snowshoes breaking the pristine surface. We invite you to embark on a journey through the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, a place where the ancient fells whisper tales of a time when they rivaled the Alps in grandeur. With us, you’ll learn the art of snowshoeing, allowing you to traverse the untouched wilderness and ascend to vantage points where the views are nothing short of breathtaking.

Our guided adventure doesn’t just offer stunning landscapes; it’s an educational experience where you’ll delve into the rich culture and nature of Lapland. Midway through, we’ll retreat to a cozy hut to enjoy a hearty lunch by an open fire. For those who prefer a more relaxed pace, the warmth of the hut provides a comforting respite while others explore further. This four to five-hour excursion is a testament to the beauty and serenity of the Arctic, requiring a moderate level of physical effort to fully embrace the experience.

Authentic Log Cabin Accommodation

After a day of exploration, there’s nothing quite like returning to the comfort of a traditional Finnish log cabin. Our cabins are the epitome of Nordic charm, complete with a sauna and a crackling fireplace to warm your evenings. Designed to accommodate families and small groups, these cabins feature cozy bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, and a living room that doubles as an extra sleeping area. The authentic Finnish sauna experience is an integral part of our culture, and we encourage you to indulge in this daily ritual, perhaps even daring to cool off in the snow afterward.

The magic of Lapland extends right to your doorstep. Step outside to explore the enchanting forests, frozen lakes, and swamps with the convenience of snowshoes. And when the night sky is clear, the dance of the Northern Lights may just be visible from the comfort of your cabin, far from the glare of city lights. With modern amenities like Wi-Fi, you can stay connected while being immersed in the tranquility of nature.

Luxury Ice Fishing: A Finnish Tradition

Ice fishing is more than just a pastime in Finland; it’s a window into the soul of the Finnish 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. The simplicity of the activity belies its depth, offering a meditative escape from the hustle of everyday life. Our luxury ice fishing adventure takes you to the best spots, where you’ll drill through the ice and settle in for a chance to catch a variety of fish in their most pristine state.

What sets our experience apart is the comfort and exclusivity we provide. You’ll travel to the fishing site by snowmobile, enjoy the warmth of a spacious tent equipped with a wood-burning stove, and even have the option to fish inside, sheltered from the elements. This three to four-hour activity is designed to be enjoyable regardless of the weather, ensuring that your ice fishing experience is as memorable as it is luxurious.

Private Husky Safari: An Arctic Adventure

There’s a unique thrill in gliding across the snow as a team of eager huskies leads the way. Our private husky safari offers an intimate encounter with these incredible animals, allowing you to drive your own sled through the stunning Lappish wilderness. Under our guidance, you’ll learn to control the speed and navigate the sled, all while enjoying the company of a fellow adventurer. The safari includes a chance to switch roles, ensuring everyone gets to experience both the excitement of driving and the joy of taking in the scenery as a passenger.

Unlike standard tours, our private safari ensures that your experience is not diluted by the presence of multiple teams. This exclusivity enhances the quality of your adventure, allowing for a more personal connection with the huskies and the landscape. After the exhilarating ride, you’ll have the opportunity to bond with the dogs, capture memorable photos, and warm up by a fire with a delicious lunch. This two and a half-hour journey is a testament to the bond between humans and animals, and the beauty of the Arctic wilderness.

Northern Lights Evening and Photography

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are a spectacle that many dream of witnessing. Our location, far above the Arctic Circle, offers one of the best stages for this natural light show. With minimal light pollution, the chances of seeing the Northern Lights are significantly higher, and on clear nights, they often grace the sky. We’ll teach you how to predict their appearance, choosing the optimal evening to gather around a bonfire, indulge in Finnish pancakes, and immerse ourselves in the lore of the night sky.

For photography enthusiasts, we offer guidance on capturing the ethereal beauty of the auroras with a DSLR camera. The experience is not just about the lights; it’s about the entire celestial canvas, from the Milky Way to the countless stars that adorn the Arctic night. While the Northern Lights remain an unpredictable marvel, our aim is to provide you with the best opportunity to witness and capture their dance, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Reindeer Farm Visit: A Cultural Encounter

Reindeer are synonymous with Lapland, and a visit to a local reindeer farm offers a glimpse into the heart of Lappish culture. We provide an authentic experience where you’ll spend a day with a reindeer herder, learning about the intricacies of reindeer husbandry. This educational tour is a chance to understand the annual cycle of reindeer herding, from feeding to caring for these majestic creatures.

During your visit, you’ll have ample opportunities to capture photos, engage with the reindeer, and enjoy the warmth of campfire coffee while delving deeper into the herder’s lifestyle. This activity is suitable for all ages and requires no physical exertion, making it an inclusive and enriching cultural experience for everyone in your group.
