Discover the Magic of a Private Winter Wonderland

Imagine a place where the snow whispers secrets of ancient times, where the northern lights dance across the sky, and where the silence of nature speaks louder than words.

We at Wildmaker Lapland specialize in crafting private holidays that immerse you in the authentic magic of this enchanting region. Our Winter Week Experience is not just a trip; it’s a journey into the soul of the Arctic.

From the moment you arrive, you’ll be enveloped in the warmth of a traditional Finnish log cabin, complete with a crackling fireplace and a private sauna. This is your home away from home, a cozy retreat nestled in the pristine wilderness. Step outside, and you’re instantly part of the breathtaking landscape, with snowshoes ready to take you on a journey through the magical forests and frozen lakes. And when the night falls, the clear skies offer a canvas for the mesmerizing aurora borealis, visible right from your doorstep.

Luxury Ice Fishing: A Finnish Tradition Reimagined

Ice fishing is more than just a pastime in Finland; it’s a reflection of the Finnish soul. With Wildmaker Lapland, you’ll experience the serenity of this tradition in the most luxurious way possible. Imagine sitting on a vast, frozen lake, surrounded by the silence of nature, as you wait for a catch beneath the ice. Our Luxury Ice Fishing adventure takes you to the finest spots, accessible by snowmobile, where a spacious tent equipped with a wood-burning stove awaits. Here, you can fish in comfort, regardless of the weather outside, making for an unforgettable 3 to 4-hour excursion.

Whether you’re a seasoned angler or a curious novice, the thrill of pulling a fresh catch from the icy depths is unparalleled. And with our expert guidance, you’ll delve deep into the essence of this cherished Finnish activity. It’s not just about the fish; it’s about connecting with nature and finding a moment of peace in the winter wilderness.

Reindeer Encounters and Cultural Insights

Reindeer are synonymous with Lapland, and our private tours offer a unique opportunity to spend a day with these majestic creatures. Accompanied by a local reindeer herder and an English-speaking guide, you’ll gain insights into the world of reindeer husbandry. Learn about the year in the life of a reindeer and the modern practices that sustain this age-old tradition. This gentle experience is perfect for all ages and requires no physical exertion, making it an inclusive adventure for your group.

After your educational tour, gather around a crackling campfire to enjoy traditional campfire coffee and continue your conversation with the herder. This is your chance to ask questions, take memorable photos, and immerse yourself in the local culture. It’s these authentic moments that transform a holiday into a treasure trove of memories.

Wilderness Snowshoeing in Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park

When the snow blankets the ground in Lapland, snowshoes become the keys to unlocking the hidden corners of the wilderness. Our guided snowshoeing adventure takes you to the heart of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, an ancient mountain chain with a story etched into every ridge. As you learn to navigate the deep snow, the mystical Pallas fells rise around you, offering breathtaking views and a sense of tranquility that can only be found in such untouched landscapes.

During this 4 to 5-hour journey, we’ll pause to enjoy a hearty lunch prepared in a cozy hut by an open fire. For those who prefer to stay grounded, the warmth of the hut and the fire provide a welcoming respite. Meanwhile, the more adventurous can ascend above the tree line to witness even more spectacular vistas. This activity is a testament to the beauty of Lapland and the spirit of exploration that thrives within its borders.

Private Husky Safari: An Intimate Wilderness Experience

There’s something inherently magical about traversing the Lappish wilderness with a team of eager huskies. On our Private Husky Safari, you’ll take the reins of your own sled, guided by the paws of these spirited animals. The connection between human and husky is profound, as you work together to glide across snowy forests and frozen swamps. This 2.5-hour journey is an intimate experience, far removed from the crowded tours, allowing you to fully engage with the enchantment of the Arctic.

After the exhilarating ride, you’ll have the chance to bond with the huskies, capturing photos and creating moments that will last a lifetime. As we gather by the fire to warm up and enjoy a delicious lunch, you’ll reflect on the unique joy that comes from such a private and personal adventure. This is the essence of our Winter Week Experience – creating moments that are exclusively yours, away from the hustle of shared excursions.

Northern Lights Evening: A Celestial Spectacle

The aurora borealis is a phenomenon that captures the imagination like no other. With Wildmaker Lapland, your chances of witnessing this celestial ballet are significantly heightened. Our secluded location, far from the glare of city lights, sets the stage for an awe-inspiring Northern Lights Evening. As we gather around a bonfire, savoring Finnish pancakes cooked over the flames, we’ll share stories and knowledge about the aurora and the star-studded sky above.

If conditions are right, the northern lights may grace us with their presence, painting the sky with vibrant hues. For photography enthusiasts, we offer guidance on capturing the perfect shot of this natural wonder with your DSLR camera. Remember, while the northern lights are a natural marvel, their appearance is never guaranteed. But rest assured, we’ll choose the night with the best odds for a clear sky and active aurora to maximize your chances of this unforgettable experience.
