Unique Experiences in Lapland Holidays

Embrace the Serenity of Luxury Ice Fishing

Imagine sitting on a pristine frozen lake, surrounded by the silent beauty of Lapland’s winter landscape. With us at Wildmaker Lapland, ice fishing transforms into an indulgent experience that delves deep into the Finnish soul. The simplicity of the activity belies its profound connection to the local culture. All you need is a frozen lake, thick enough to support your weight, and the basic tools: an ice drill, a rod, and a worm. But we elevate this tradition to new heights.

Our luxury ice fishing adventure takes you to the most coveted spots, accessible by snowmobile, ensuring an exclusive and serene experience. Our spacious ice fishing tent, complete with a wood-burning stove, offers warmth and comfort, allowing you to fish in peace, regardless of the weather outside. This isn’t just fishing; it’s a meditative retreat where the catch of the day is as fresh as it gets, and the taste is unparalleled because it’s your own catch. The excursion lasts about 3-4 hours, but the memories will last a lifetime.

Step into the world of a local reindeer herder and uncover the mysteries of this ancient livelihood. With Wildmaker Lapland, you’ll spend a day immersed in the traditions of reindeer husbandry, guided by a knowledgeable herder and an English-speaking guide. This hands-on experience offers a rare glimpse into the year-round cycle of reindeer care, from feeding to herding.

As you learn about this integral part of Lapland’s culture, there will be ample opportunities to capture photos and create lasting memories. After the tour, gather around a campfire to enjoy a warm cup of coffee and delve deeper into the herder’s tales. This program is suitable for all ages and requires no special physical effort, making it an inclusive and enlightening adventure for everyone.

This activity is not just a walk; it’s an exploration of an ancient mountain range that once rivaled the Alps. Now, the mystical Pallas fells offer a unique trekking experience, with breathtaking views and a chance to learn about the local nature and culture.

We’ll guide you through the basics of snowshoeing before setting off on our adventure. A cozy hut with an open fire awaits to serve as our lunch spot, and for those who prefer to stay behind while others ascend the fells, the warmth of the fire offers comfort.
