Unwind in Lapland: Exclusive Winter Getaway

Discover the Serenity of Ice Fishing in the Heart of Lapland

Imagine sitting on a pristine, frozen lake, surrounded by the tranquil beauty of Lapland’s winter landscape. Ice fishing is not just a pastime; it’s a window into the soul of Finnish culture. With the ice often reaching a thickness of 60 centimeters, it provides the perfect platform for a serene fishing experience. We equip you with an ice drill, a simple rod, and a worm, setting the stage for a meditative encounter with nature. As you sit back and relax, you might find that ice fishing is akin to a form of meditation, allowing you to unwind and connect with the environment.

But why settle for the basics when you can indulge in luxury ice fishing? We take you to the finest fishing spots via snowmobile, providing a spacious, warm tent equipped with a wood-burning stove. Inside, you can fish in comfort, shielded from the elements, making the experience enjoyable even during a snowstorm. This exclusive activity lasts approximately 3-4 hours, offering a unique blend of adventure and relaxation.

Embrace the Lappish Tradition at a Local Reindeer Farm

Step into the world of traditional reindeer herding with a visit to a local reindeer farm. Here, you’ll spend a day with a reindeer herder and an English-speaking guide who will introduce you to the intricacies of modern reindeer husbandry. As you learn about the annual cycle of reindeer care, you’ll have the opportunity to capture memorable photos and immerse yourself in this quintessential Lappish experience.

After the tour, gather around a campfire to enjoy a warm cup of coffee and delve deeper into the stories of reindeer herding. This program is suitable for all ages and requires no physical exertion, making it an ideal family activity. It’s a chance to connect with the local culture and understand the significance of reindeer in Lapland’s heritage.

Explore Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park with Wilderness Snowshoeing

When the snow blankets the landscape, ordinary footwear just won’t do. Snowshoes are your key to unlocking the wonders of the Lappish wilderness. We invite you to embark on an adventure through Pallas-Yll√§stunturi National Park, where you’ll learn to navigate the snow with ease. This ancient mountain chain, once as towering as the Alps, now presents a mystical backdrop for your exploration.

As you traverse the breathtaking scenery, you’ll be treated to a lunch prepared in a cozy hut by an open fire. For those who prefer to stay warm while others ascend the fells, the hut offers a welcoming retreat. This 4-5 hour activity does require some physical effort, but the rewards are unparalleled views and an intimate encounter with the untouched beauty of Lapland.

Experience the Magic of the Northern Lights and Starry Skies

The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are a spectacle that many dream of witnessing. Our location, far removed from the glare of city lights, provides an exceptional vantage point for observing this natural wonder. On clear nights, the auroras often grace the sky, offering a breathtaking display right outside your cabin door.

We’ll teach you how to predict the Northern Lights and choose the optimal evening for viewing. Gather around a bonfire, savor Finnish pancakes, and immerse yourself in the lore of the night sky. If fortune smiles upon us, the Northern Lights will dance overhead, creating an unforgettable experience. For photography enthusiasts, we offer guidance on capturing the awe-inspiring beauty of the auroras with your DSLR camera.

Cozy Up in Authentic Log Cabin Accommodation

Your stay in Lapland is complemented by the warmth and charm of a real Finnish log cabin. Equipped with a sauna and a fireplace, the cabin offers a quintessential Finnish experience. With two bedrooms and additional sleeping space in the living room, the cabin comfortably accommodates your group. The kitchen is fully equipped for home-cooked meals, and the electric heating is supplemented by the cozy ambiance of a crackling fire.

Step outside to immerse yourself in nature, with snowshoes at the ready to explore the enchanting forests and frozen landscapes. The absence of light pollution means that on clear nights, the sky reveals its full glory, with the Northern Lights and the Milky Way on display. And with Wi-Fi available, you can stay connected while enjoying the seclusion of your winter retreat.

Embark on a Private Husky Safari Adventure

There’s something inherently magical about traversing the snowy wilderness led by a team of enthusiastic huskies. On our private husky safari, you’ll take the reins of your own sled, guided by our expert instructions. The dogs, born for this purpose, will lead you through forests and over frozen landscapes, sharing their joy and vigor.

Unlike standard safaris where multiple teams may travel together, our private experience ensures a more intimate and high-quality adventure. You’ll have the opportunity to bond with the huskies, capture photos, and warm up by a fire with a delicious lunch post-safari. This 2.5-hour journey is a unique opportunity to engage with these incredible animals and the stunning environment they call home.

At Wildmaker Lapland, we are dedicated to providing you with an exclusive winter getaway that combines luxury, culture, and adventure. Our private tours are designed to offer you the best of Lapland, ensuring that your experience is as personal and memorable as the magical landscape itself. Join us for a winter week experience that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
