Lapland is pretty cold place during the winter but it all depends on your clothing. Even -40°c can be warm if you have warm clothing. I will provide you with thermal clothing that will keep you warm outside but it is a good idea to bring a base layer that you can wear under your normal clothes.
Finland is one of the safest countries in the world. In the wilderness the biggest hazards are getting lost in the winter time without having skills to survive. Don´t worry, during the activities you always have a professional wilderness guide with you to take care of safety.

Lapland is a great place to see the Northern lights and our location is perfect to see them. Compared to tourist areas like Levi and Rovaniemi we dont have any light pollution so if the Northern lights are visible you can just walk outside and see them. The Northern lights are a natural phenomenon so we cannot guarantee that you will see them. They require clear skies and activity from the sun. If the skies would be clear all the time the Northern lights would be visible in our location every other night. The season when it is possible to see the Northern lights is from the end of August until April. The last nights of April are already too bright to be able to see the Northern lights.

I also take these additional safety measures due to the Coronavirus:
- Extra careful cleaning and disinfection of the log cabin between guests
