Where Is Lapland, And Where Can You Find Wildmaker Lapland?
Lapland is situated in the northernmost region of Finland, above the Arctic circle. It is a patch of land commonly known among children as the home of Father Christmas – but for adults, it holds even more incredible gifts than those made by Santa’s elves! The frozen landscape, beautiful wildlife, and breathtaking natural beauty is enough to hold anyone’s attention captive.
Unlike many other more touristy areas, Wildmaker Lapland is based between three remote villages: Äkäslompolo, Levi, and Muonio. We are situated adjacent to the stunning Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, around 60km from the nearest airport.
Due to our remote location, when you visit us at Wildmaker, you won’t find any pollution or other tourists. That’s why we offer only the most authentic experience to our visitors: if you want to get away from the crowds and out into the silence of one of the most remote areas of the world, a Lapland private holiday is for you.
Things To Do In Lapland
Let’s take a look at the things you can explore in Lapland. No matter your age, fitness level, abilities, or comfort levels in remote areas, we’ve got something you’ll love.
Let’s take a look at the most prized treasures that this incredible place has to offer!
1. Husky Tours
One of the most popular staples of Lapland living is the beautiful, majestic, and loyal Husky. Huskies are owned as pets all over the world, but they are in their natural habitat here in Lapland. If you come for a holiday in Lapland, you’ve got to spend time with these beautiful dogs – it’s a rite of passage!
In ancient populations, and still today in some parts of Lapland and the Arctic Circle, huskies aren’t just pets – they are working dogs. Huskies, who are visibly descended from wild wolves, pull heavy sled loads full of produce and people, and are a viable mode of transport on the remote, snowy terrain.
On our Private Husky Safari, you can experience husky sledding at its most authentic. Ride on the back of a husky-pulled sled and witness these stunning dogs working in their element.
2. See the Northern Lights
The Northern Lights is one of the modern wonders of the world, and it occurs naturally here in Lapland. You will have seen breathtaking images of the Northern Lights online, and you might have thought, ‘It can’t be that good in real life!’ Believe us, it is.
When you stay in a log cabin in Lapland, you can see the Northern Lights flash beautifully across the night’s sky. The greens, blues, and purples come together to create a tear-jerking spectacle that will leave you marveling at the great mysteries of the universe.
3. Visit Local Villages
The indigenous populations around Lapland preserve their traditions very carefully, and we have built long-standing relationships with members of local communities in the surrounding villages. With one of our experienced Lapland tour guides, you can visit local villages and learn about the ways of life that local people have established throughout the preceding generations.
4. Go Ice Fishing
If you love going fishing at home, ice fishing will knock your socks off! Ice fishing is an ancient tradition that was established by indigenous people who used it to survive.
The careful techniques and skills of ice fishing take years to master, but you can have a taste of this amazing cultural practice with one of our experienced guides.
