Midnight Sun & Finnish Happiness

Your host and her family have been running exceptional nature-based adventures for many years and knows how to look after you.  Your will be welcomed as a friend and be able to explore and embrace this magical area.

Your host moved from crowded Middle-Europe back to Finish Lapland in her mid-twenties. The forest, the nature, the silence drove her decision to return to the arctic wilderness. She will show you her huge joys in her private wilderness. She loves biking in summer and in winter snowshoeing, cross country skiing, hiking, swimming, rowing, canoeing, hunting, fishing, picking food from the outdoor and the ever important time for relaxation in the sauna.

You will be staying approximately 1.5 hours from Rovaniemi in  typical Finnish log cabins and a traditional farmhouse by a glistening lake in the middle of private wilderness. The accommodation is equipped with luxury beds, bedding and textiles from natural materials as the core values are sustainability, locality as well as ecological and easy-going lifestyle. The saunas are ones you´ll find only in private finish homes.
