About your experience stay in Finland

 

HOSSA

The varieties of lakes, rivers, canyon lake, specific features of the park, have founded its reputation. Elected park of the year in 2011, it was also a place of important human settlements in the Neolithic era: the site of Varikalio with its cave paintings, testifies to this even today. One of his paintings, a representation of a man, has become the symbol of the park.

THE RUSSIAN BORDER

Frontier track, yesterday one of the most watched borders in the world, reserved today for border guards by snowmobile, it is open to sleds by special permit! We will join a trapper's hut open to the rare adventurers still animated by a pioneering spirit.

NEW YEAR OPTION

For many travel agencies, the theme of Christmas Eve or New Years Eve in Lapland has become a commercial boon!
For us it is above all a dream territory, the ideal place for a memorable Christmas Eve to experience differently in Lapland, with family or friends. A privileged period to get active and share.
We are building our existing programs around these special moments of New Years Eve. We thus create tailor-made for our audience: we know from experience that at this time of the year, adventurers are not always made up: children, grandparents, whole families who are looking for to celebrate together this moment far from the commercial rush of the big European cities.
New Years Eve takes place at the Raili reindeer farm, a real authentic place made of wood and crackling fire, around a traditional Lapp buffet.

IMPORTANT: the sequence of activities in the indicated order can sometimes be limited by local weather conditions, as well as by the level of participants
