Discover the Magic of Snowshoeing in Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park

Embark on a journey through the pristine wilderness of Lapland with an adventure that takes you beyond the beaten path. Snowshoeing in the Pallas-Yll√§stunturi National Park offers an unparalleled opportunity to explore the enchanting landscapes of the Arctic. With us, you’ll learn the art of snowshoeing, allowing you to traverse the deep snow without sinking, opening up a world of adventure amidst the ancient fells.

Our guided tours lead you to breathtaking vistas, where the remnants of a mountain chain that once rivaled the Alps now provide a mystical backdrop. As part of the experience, we’ll enjoy a hearty lunch prepared in a traditional hut by an open fire. For those who prefer a less strenuous adventure, there’s the option to relax by the fire while others ascend the fells. This activity, lasting approximately 4-5 hours, does require some physical effort, but the rewards are truly unforgettable.

Authentic Log Cabin Accommodation with a Finnish Sauna

After a day of exploration, retreat to the comfort of a real Finnish log cabin, complete with a sauna and a cozy fireplace. Our cabins offer a genuine slice of Finnish life, with two bedrooms, a convertible sofa in the living room, and a fully equipped kitchen. The warmth of the fireplace and the luxury of a daily sauna experience will envelop you in the culture of Finland, where the sauna is a cherished weekly ritual.

Step outside your cabin door and you’re immediately immersed in the magic of Lapland’s nature. Don snowshoes to wander through mystical forests and across frozen lakes, with the clear skies above offering a chance to witness the Northern Lights right from your doorstep. Despite the remote setting, modern amenities like Wi-Fi ensure you stay connected, should you choose to share your experiences with the world.

Luxury Ice Fishing: A Quintessential Finnish Experience

Ice fishing is more than just a pastime in Finland; it’s a window into the soul of its people. With us, you’ll venture onto the frozen lakes of Lapland, where the ice is thick enough to support your winter quest for the freshest fish. Our luxury ice fishing experience takes you to the best spots with the convenience of a snowmobile, and the comfort of a spacious, heated tent allows you to enjoy the serenity of the lake, regardless of the weather outside.

During this 3-4 hour activity, you’ll learn the simple yet profound art of ice fishing. It’s an almost meditative practice that rewards patience with the freshest catch you can imagine. And with our expert guidance, even a snowstorm won’t hinder your enjoyment of this uniquely Finnish pursuit.

Reindeer Farm Visit: A Glimpse into Lappish Culture

Experience the traditional life of a reindeer herder with a visit to a local reindeer farm. Our English-speaking guides will introduce you to the intricacies of modern reindeer husbandry. You’ll learn about the annual cycle of reindeer herding and have the opportunity to feed these gentle creatures. This immersive cultural experience is suitable for all ages and requires no physical exertion.

After the tour, gather around a campfire to enjoy a warm cup of coffee and delve deeper into the world of reindeer herding. It’s a chance to capture memorable photos and gain insights into a way of life that has shaped the region for centuries.

Northern Lights Evening and Photography: A Celestial Spectacle

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are a natural marvel that many dream of witnessing. Our location, far from the light pollution of cities, offers an excellent chance to see this phenomenon. We’ll teach you how to predict the Northern Lights and choose the best evening for viewing. As we wait for the lights to appear, we’ll enjoy Finnish pancakes by a bonfire and learn about the night sky.

On a clear night, the Milky Way and countless stars are visible, creating a breathtaking backdrop for the dancing auroras. We’ll guide you in capturing these moments with your DSLR camera, ensuring you take home more than just memories. However, it’s important to remember that the Northern Lights are unpredictable, and their appearance cannot be guaranteed.

Private Husky Safari: An Unforgettable Arctic Adventure

Imagine gliding through snow-covered forests and over frozen swamps, led by a team of enthusiastic huskies. This is the essence of our private husky safari, where you’ll bond with your own team of dogs and learn to navigate the Lappish wilderness. The safari offers a balance of excitement and tranquility, as you alternate between driving the sled and enjoying the ride as a passenger.

Unlike crowded tours, our private safari ensures a personalized experience, free from unnecessary stops and delays. After the journey, you’ll have the chance to meet the dogs and capture the moment with photos. We’ll then gather by a fire to warm up and enjoy a well-deserved lunch.
