High end lappish experience: Arctic Land Adventure, Kilpisjärvi

Arctic Land Adventure is based in one of the most northern part of finnish Lapland and gives in my opinion the best possibility to experiece sámi culture and the true lappish life in so many aspects. One of them is, that the owerns are originally Sámi, the indigenous people in northern Finland. Their  4 luxury glass cabins – desinged all by the owner herself Mia Vasara – are located on a beautiful lake in the the middle of arctic wilderness and: in the middle of Vasara Reindeer Rench. Accordingly this makes it a 100% quite, personal and unique experience. And no need so search for reindeer, they will find you.

Always included is a typical lappish dinner and breakfast in their cozy kota by a fireplace. The fact of their location in the very north increases the possibility to catch the Northern Lights even with a weak solar activity. This experience will cost you quite much, but it is worth it.

Positive Vibes, Peacefulness and Wellness: Arctic Skylight Lodge, Ylläs

You want to relax, experience the peacefulness of Lapland, eat amazing food and be in pure nature? And all this for an affordable price? Then your perfect destination is Arctic Skylight Lodge near Äkaslompolo. The hotel near the Ylläs nationalpark was only opened in February – so just before the Corona pandemic. The location by a river the middle of the forest gives the perfect place for your Lapland holiday. Also because the location has no light pollution at all, which makes it perfect to capture Northern Lights. Enjoy them from the comfy bed in your glass cabin, where you are hopefully not sleeping when they appear. The Arctic Skylight Lodge is one of the places with the most magnificent athmosphere in Lapland in our opinion.

Special about the Arctic Skylight Lodge is their amazing Sauna by the river. It can be booked seperatly and in privat turns. Enjoy a magnificent view through the glass windows of the Sauna and be still only surrounded by maybe some reindeer or birds.
