You will settle down comfortably on reindeer skins in the kota (Lappish tepee) and let the campfire tune you into the atmosphere. The Shaman tells about the magical atmosphere of Lapland, of gnomes, Northern Lights, of Lappish nature and lastly endows the travelers with good luck dedicating them the magical circle of Lapland.
Husky Safari & Finnish Sauna
Are you ready for the dog sledding?
You emerge into the cold air, wearing our comfortable, arctic-proofed gear, ready for adventure. At the husky kennels, you’ll meet the dogs, their excited barks filling the air. You are provided with all the necessary equipment, and taught how to drive a team of dogs. With the rest of the family safely wrapped up in warm furs in the sleigh, you set off!
As you slide through the snow and into the wilderness, the barking of the dogs subsides, and all you can hear is the pounding of paws and the sound of the sledge on the snow. With a shout and a pull of the reins, the dogs turn, and you are entirely in the moment. The white and magical landscape slips by as the dogs pick up speed. Their joy at pulling the sleigh is contagious, and you see broad, happy smiles on everyone’s faces.
The sun sets, the sky turns gold, but this day will live on forever.
At evening, you will experience the gentle heat of a Finnish sauna and its invigorating health effects.
Leave your everyday rush for a moment and let the time stand still just to enjoy the atmosphere. Throw water on the stove and let the steam refresh both your body and your mind!
You can combine your sauna experience with a very popular winter activity in Finland , ice swimming! The secret of plunging into icy water lies in the feeling that surges through your body once you get out of the water

The reindeer will pull you through the forest, and introduce you to the life of a reindeer, until you arrive to a Lappish kota where the reindeer herder is waiting for you with so many stories to tell. You will hear fascinating stories about the life in Lapland that evolves around the reindeer.

These glass-ceilinged igloos rest on the fell slope, at an altitude of about 340 m. They offer guests luxury on the edge of the wilderness: a view of the rugged fell landscape and the northern sky.
