Have you ever wondered what it is like to live near the Arctic Circle? We invite you to our Finnish home, where you can experience the local culture, and relax in the wood-burning sauna.

What to expect?

  • This is not a typical tour of Lapland, as we are not a typical tour company. We strive to give you an authentic experience that you can't get anywhere else. As we open our home to you, we invite you to discover the true colors of Finland. Our home is located on a farm, 22 km away from the lovely town of Rovaniemi. Surrounded by picturesque landscapes and postcard-perfect scenery on the lake shore, our home is a truly unique place.

  • The tour starts with the hotel pick up. We usually drive a minivan, as we specialize in small group tours only to ensure a private experience. Once we arrive at the destination, we will start preparing the authentic wood-burning sauna. When we say authentic - we really mean it! Our sauna dates back to the times when it was used as a smoke sauna. You can still smell the smoke! However, nowadays we heat up the stones in a wood fire.

  • Once the sauna is ready, it's your time to unwind. Listen to the fire crackling in the wood stove as the heat slowly rises from the stones. Sauna is the place of freedom, where you can let go of the stress and immerse yourself in the radiating power of heat. Our guide will teach you how to safely cool down, as you jump into the icy water in the private lake! Yes, we go Arctic lake swimming in the summer after a sauna session. You can also jump into the snow! Once you're cooled down, it's time to get back in the sauna. The process is repeated, until you feel completely refreshed. This hot and cold sauna practice boosts your immunity, and does wonders for your soul.

  • After the sauna and swimming in the icy water, it's time for snacks. We will gather around the fireplace, and enjoy refreshing snacks, before we pack up, and hit the road to drop you off at your hotel.
