Feel the authenticity and calmness of Lappish nature on a private land


During this special day you will experience the Lappish lifestyle from back in the day. Finnish and expecially Lappish people are forest people and we draw life energy from the nature. Everything during this day is private, starting from the transportation all the way to the cuisine and the land where we walk and where the wilderness cabin is located. Also our land is very active meaning you will have a good chance to spot some wild forest animals such as game birds, foxes, rabbits and elks.

Note: This tour is all-inclusive and contains all the costs mentioned in price.

Itinerary

I will pick you up from Rovaniemi from your hotel/accommodation where our journey starts. We drive around 1, 5 hrs to Sodankylä and to my private land. We park the car, put on the snowshoes (in the Winter) and start our light walking journey towards to wilderness cabin. We always walk according to your pace and depending on that the walk to the house takes around 30 to 45 minutes.

When we arrive to the house we will start the fire inside the house and also inside the original Lappish hut we have set in front of the house. I will serve you an apero (hot berry juice) and set you nicely close to the fireplace. Inside the house and during the walk I will share you my family history since the land has always belonged to my family.

I will also serve you a typical Lappish meal, some more warm drinks and you have a chance to enjoy all of these luxuries in self-knitted wool socks. After the lunch, nice talks and possible card games we will start walking back to the car and continue back towards Rovaniemi.
