Winter, summer, midnight or evening, the joy of sauna bathing is a totally delightful event.
Sauna bathing has become such a deeply ingrained Finnish tradition that not even the difficult circumstances have been able to interrupt or alter it. It is a part of Finnish culture, customs and social pattern, passed inevitably from one generation to the next.
The sauna effect is created by making the body hot throughout, almost like simulation a fever. This high temperature, coupled with the tranquil view and the later breathing of the stimulation lake air creates the benevolent effect always associated with sauna.
The greatest time to see the Northern Lights is between October and middle of March. You need fair skies, pitch black nights and some luck to see the dancing lights in the sky. To make the entire experience extraordinary we will take you a traditional Finnish sauna on a private Arctic lake. Let's make this an adventure of a lifetime! All you need is luck, dark and clear night.
Once the sauna is all set up it's your time to relax. Let the heat purify your body as the mellow wintery magic of Lapland purifies your soul. Let go of the stress and enjoy the presence of your loved ones. While we do our best to prepare you for an evening in the wilderness, it's up to you decide how you want to spend your time. The classic Nordic way is to spend 10-15 minutes in the sauna and then jump into ice cold water, or even a big pile of crystal white snow! A cold plunge after a steamy session increases your blood flow, relieves pressure and boosts up your endorphin levels!
Ice swimming after a sauna is an excellent way to unwind. The sudden drop in temperature activates the body's adrenaline, a hormone that elevates mood and speeds up blood circulation. It also triggers the release of endorphins, hormones that ease pain and increase activity. The added benefits are glowing skin, increased energy, and enhanced immunity.
After this unique Finnish spa experience, it's time to get back to our little cozy wooden cottage to enjoy smoked salmon dinner by a fireplace.
The Northern Lights hunting is one of the most popular things to do in Finland. Seeing flickering shades of blue, green, violet and sometimes even crimson red is one of the most epic adventures you can have. Aurora sights are never guaranteed, as nature is unpredictable. So, that makes this experience even more special. The thrill of the chase, an amazing sauna experience and a traditional dinner in a wooden cottage by the private arctic lake are what we call The best of Lapland.
Keep in mind that we will do our best to make you comfortable, warm and entertained, but there's one thing we can't promise you - seeing Northern lights. Nature is unpredictable and Northern lights sights are not guaranteed. That's why our tour is so fantastic; you won't feel sad if you miss the frolicking lights in the sky.

That is not possible to see the northern lights on a day's departure (13:00). But you will have a great opportunity to take daytime photos and enjoy our place in the daylight.
