All of these activities below are included in the Lapland Escape tour.
The activities mentioned below are all low-level activities: easily approachable and suited for both the young and the old. Some require physical effort, but not too much. All the activities include transportations, lunch and a professional wilderness guide.

15 km Husky Safari

A team of huskies pull you across snowy forests and frozen swamps. The dogs love it as they were born to do it. There is something very magical in exploring the wilderness with a pack of dogs pulling your sled.
You will get your own team of huskies that you are in charge of. I will show you how to drive the team. Basically the dogs do most of the work but you are in charge of their speed and breaking. Don’t worry, it is quite simple. You will share one sled with another person from your group. One will be driving and the other one will be sitting as a passenger. Halfway through the safari you will change places. After the safari you will get to meet some of the dogs and take photos. Later we will warm up by a fire and enjoy lunch.
This is a small group tour! On a normal husky safari there can be as many as 24 people 12 dogteams at the same time. When one team has a problem the others need to wait. On a small group safari the quality of the tour is just so much better.
Duration of this activity is about 2,5 hours.
The driver must be over 13 years old.

The safari is approximately 15km

Northern Lights Evening and Photography

Have you ever seen the Northern lights? At our location way above the arctic circle they are very common. If the sky is clear, you can usually see them approximately every other night. You will be staying far away from the light pollution so your possibility to see the Northern lights will be a lot higher compared to the busier tourist areas in Lapland.
 In fact, if the northern lights are visible, you can just walk outside your cabin to see them. 
When you arrive I will teach you how to predict the northern lights. We will choose a night when we have the best chance for clear skies and good northern lights activity.
In the evening we will gather around a bonfire and prepare Finnish pancakes on the fire. You will learn about the Northern lights and also about other things on the night sky. If we are lucky the northern lights will appear!
There is no light pollution so the night sky looks just amazing with its millions of stars. For some people this is the first time in their life that they see the Milky Way.
It is a powerful experience to witness the northern lights dancing on the sky with the only sound coming from the crackling fire.

The timing of this activity depends on the activity of the northern lights. It will be arranged on the night when there is the best chance to see the Northern lights.
If you have a DSLR camera we will teach you how to take amazing photos of the northern lights!
Please note that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon it is not guaranteed that you will see them.

Luxury Ice Fishing

Ice fishing is the most Finnish thing you can do in Finland. When you understand ice fishing you have dug very deep into the essence of Finnish people.

The basics are simple. You need a frozen lake. About 5 centimetres of ice is enough to carry you. On a normal winter we have about 60 centimetres in Lapland. To get through the ice you will need an ice drill. Then just a rod and a worm and you are set. You sit on the beautiful frozen lake, enjoy the nature and relax your mind. It is almost like meditation.

There are plenty of different species of fish on the lake. Fish does not get fresher than this, and it never tastes as good as when you have caught it yourself.

Why do we call it Luxury Ice fishing? Its because we go to the best fishing spots with a snowmobile and a sled, we have an amazing spacious ice fishing tent with a wood burning stove that keeps it very warm. You can even fish inside the tent.  That is why the fishing is enjoyable even if there would be a snowstorm outside.

Duration of this activity is approximately 3-4 hours

Reindeer Sleigh ride

Experience a day with a local reindeer herder and his reindeer.

You will participate in a 3 km reindeer sleigh ride where the reindeer pulls you in a sled through the snowy landscape and forest.

During the tour it is possible to take pictures and after the tour we enjoy lunch with asking for a  little more about reindeer herding. 

Program suites all ages and does not demand physical activity.

Wilderness Snowshoeing

In the deep snow you can’t walk with your normal shoes. You will sink in and get stuck. With snowshoes you can go anywhere! It is a perfect way to go on an adventure during the winter.
We will go to Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park where you will learn how to use the snowshoes. We will then walk into the wilderness.
The National Park is an ancient mountain chain that millions of years ago was as high as the Alps. What we have left of those mountains are the mystical Pallas fells. You will enjoy the breathtaking views that the national park offers while you learn about the nature and culture of the area.
We will prepare lunch in a small hut around an open fire. From this hut we will start ascending above the tree line to see even more amazing views. If there is someone in your group that is physically not fit enough to ascend the fell it is okay to wait in the hut around the warming fire until we return with the rest.

The duration of this activity is approximately 4-5 hours

Please note that this activity requires some physical effort from the participants.

Muonio Village Tour

We will head to a local souvenir shop where you will find absolutely everything that you could wish for to take home as a souvenir from Lapland.

We will also visit Muonio town where you can explore our small village.

Finally we will visit the bridge that is the border between Finland and Sweden. You will have a change to step into Sweden today!

Log Cabin Accommodation

This tour includes a shared accommodation in our Kukkuma-cabin. You will share the big log cabin with the other guests.

Kukkuma-cabin is a real Finnish log cabin with a sauna and a fireplace. There are three bedrooms with two beds in each. In the living room there is a sofa that can be made into a bed as well. 
The cabin is heated with electricity but there is also a fireplace that gives heat and creates a nice and cozy atmosphere.

Outside is a traditional Finnish Kota with a fireplace.

A log cabin in Finland is not complete without a sauna. Sauna is a very important part of Finnish culture and most of the Finns bathe in a sauna every week. There is a sauna in your cabin so you have a chance to go to sauna everyday. If you are brave enough you can cool off by rolling in the snow.

The nature starts right when you step outside. Put on the snowshoes and go explore the magical forests and frozen lakes and swamps. There is no light pollution so the sky is very clear. If the northern lights are in the sky you can see them from your doorstep.
