Lapland Holidays: A Complete Guide

Discover the Magic of Wilderness Snowshoeing

Embarking on a snowshoeing adventure in the heart of Lapland is an experience like no other. At Wildmaker Lapland, we invite you to traverse the pristine Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, where the ancient fells whisper tales of a time when they rivaled the Alps in grandeur. With snowshoes strapped on, you’ll float atop the deep snow, exploring the untouched wilderness that beckons the bold and the curious.

Our guided tours are designed to immerse you in the natural beauty and cultural heritage of the region. As we journey through the park, we’ll pause to savor a hearty lunch prepared over an open fire in a cozy hut. For those who prefer to stay warm by the fire, there’s no need to ascend the fells – the breathtaking views will come to you upon our return. This four to five-hour excursion does require some physical effort, but the rewards are immeasurable.

Experience Authentic Log Cabin Accommodation

At Wildmaker Lapland, we believe that true relaxation comes from a harmonious blend of comfort and nature. That’s why we offer accommodation in authentic Finnish log cabins, complete with saunas and fireplaces. Imagine retiring to a cabin where the warmth of a crackling fire and the serenity of the surrounding wilderness envelop you in a cocoon of tranquility.

Our cabins are equipped with all the modern amenities you need, including a well-appointed kitchen and Wi-Fi. Yet, they retain the rustic charm that defines the Finnish cabin experience. Step outside, and you’re instantly in the heart of nature, ready to explore with snowshoes or simply gaze at the clear night sky, where the Northern Lights dance free from light pollution.

Luxury Ice Fishing: A Finnish Tradition Reimagined

Ice fishing is not just a pastime in Finland; it’s a window into the soul of its people. At Wildmaker Lapland, we elevate this traditional activity to new heights with our Luxury Ice Fishing experience. Venture onto the frozen lakes of Lapland, where the ice, often 60 centimeters thick, becomes the foundation for a serene, almost meditative escape.

Our luxury experience includes travel to the finest fishing spots via snowmobile, a spacious and warm ice fishing tent, and all the equipment you need to reel in your catch. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or a first-timer, the thrill of catching fish in such a majestic setting is unparalleled. And with a wood-burning stove to keep you cozy, even a snowstorm can’t dampen the spirit of this three to four-hour adventure.

Connect with Culture at a Local Reindeer Farm

Reindeer are an integral part of Lapland’s heritage, and a visit to a local reindeer farm offers a unique glimpse into the lives of these majestic creatures and the herders who care for them. At Wildmaker Lapland, as part of some of the experience packages we provide an opportunity to spend a day with a local reindeer herder, learning the ins and outs of reindeer husbandry and the annual cycle of care these animals receive.

During your visit, you’ll have the chance to capture memorable photos, engage in enlightening conversations with the herder, and enjoy a warm cup of coffee by the campfire. This experience is suitable for all ages and requires no physical exertion, making it a perfect family-friendly activity that enriches your understanding of Lapland’s culture.

Chase the Northern Lights and Capture the Moment

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are a spectacle that many dream of witnessing. At Wildmaker Lapland, we’re situated in an ideal location far from light pollution, significantly increasing your chances of seeing this natural wonder. Our Northern Lights Evening and Photography session is not just about observation; it’s about immersion and understanding.

Upon your arrival, we’ll teach you how to predict the Northern Lights and choose the optimal evening for viewing. As we gather around a bonfire, making Finnish pancakes and sharing stories, we’ll keep our eyes peeled for the aurora’s appearance. For those with DSLR cameras, we’ll share tips on capturing the perfect shot of the Northern Lights, ensuring you take home more than just memories.

Private Husky Safari: An Intimate Wilderness Journey

There’s something undeniably magical about gliding through the snow-covered landscapes of Lapland, led by a team of enthusiastic huskies. At Wildmaker Lapland, our Private Husky Safari offers an intimate and exhilarating way to explore the wilderness. With your own team of huskies, you’ll learn the art of mushing, feeling the rush of the cold air as you navigate through forests and over frozen swamps.

This exclusive experience ensures a personal and high-quality adventure, free from the distractions of larger groups. You’ll have the chance to bond with the dogs, switch roles with your partner mid-safari, and warm up afterward with a fireside lunch. Our private safaris cater to your preferences, whether you’re seeking a longer trek or the thrill of driving your own sled. Just reach out to us before booking, and we’ll tailor the experience to your desires.
