What you'll do

Please choose whether you prefer a late night return or an overnight stay. After the pick-up from town and a 20 minutes driving, a snowmobile ride will bring us to our traditional secluded riverside cabin. We are surrounded by the Lappish wilderness alone. Upon arrival we will learn how to heat up and prepare a traditional wood fired sauna. While the sauna is heating up, my guests can relax with a cup of tea/coffee and enjoy the silence in the arctic twilight. The place is wonderful for Aurora Borealis sighting and stargazing. The main cabin also heats up with an indoor fireplace and is lit by candles. I will help with adjusting your devices for Aurora photography. At this point we can also use the snow shoes or forest ski's and explore the surrounding wilderness. Ice sculpting is also possible at this point. Once the sauna is ready, we'll get our towels and I will guide you in detail through the process of traditional sauna bathing. From the mercy of the warm sauna, we will learn how to embrace the cold element through the art of winter swimming (optional). After a sauna session of one hour or more, we will get indulged in a bit of traditional cuisine on the fire stove. In the case of an overnight stay, you will get to decide how to divide the night between sleeping and aurora sighting. Finally, we pack the snowmobile and prepare our return to town.

Where you'll be

Our traditional off-grid wilderness cabin is located on a pristine riverside. We are north of Rovaniemi, well outside the light pollution and with open horizons to the north, east and west. This makes it a top location for Aurora Borealis viewing and photographing. Without any neighbors on sight, we will enjoy peace and privacy. Wildlife or their tracks, such as reindeer, fox, otter and the white rabbit, are often seen in the area.
