In the summer, we can take you on a wonderful hike on the Karhunjomalampi Trail. This route takes us through the lush, old-growth forest of Luosto. When blueberry season is in full swing (July - October), the trail blooms with scrumptious delights. Another relaxing summer adventure lies in the beautiful Ranua Wildlife Park. The park has one of the world’s best zoos, focusing on 50 different animal species native to Northern Finland, including the nation’s only polar bears.

We offer a variety of adventures to hunt the sometimes elusive sight. Whether striking out in a reindeer pulled sleigh, or sequestering ourselves in a Lappish wooden hut on the shores of a private lake, your night will be memorable. We also offer several snowmobile safaris to take you far from civilization to see sights or even fish!

Nice evening with sauna and excellent lapish dinner
I went here with my 16 year old son and we had a great evening. We went in sauna and in the cold lake and in the snow! A lot of fun. Then we were served nice, smoked salmon. We felt very welcomed and would go there again.
Our hosts Tonia and Alex were absolutely delightful! Tonia picked us up and provided information about the region, her background and where were were going. The location is at a remote and totally private lakeside cabin with a separate sauna building. We were shown around and given instructions about how and where to take a lake dip to cool down after the sauna. Alex had fired up the sauna which was perfectly piping hot and we all experienced the exhiliration and refreshment of the sauna/lake dip. This was all followed by a very delicious salmon dinner cooked to perfection. We had hoped to also see the northern lights but the weather was very overcast. Afterwards we were dropped off at our lodging doorstep, which was so nice since we were totally relaxed and sleepy. We highly recommend this experience.
We did Ice floating with Nordic Adventures. Alex and his team are very honest and passionate people living their dream and making our time as pleasant as possible. Will definitely get back to them when we are in Rovaniemi and truly recommend them.
The evening started by meeting Alex, who picked us up from our accommodation and drove us straight to his sauna by the lake. There was a dressing room inside containing everything we could possibly need. We did three sessions of sauna. When taking a break, we sat on a bench outside, in -14 deg. Celsius. It didn't seem cold at all. Then, after running approx. 10m, we jumped into a hole in a frozen lake. Its hard to describe the feeling but it's definitely experience of a lifetime. A tasty dinner made by Alex & his wife in a building nearby concluded this great evening.
Make sure to dive in the frozen lake. The alternative is jumping into a snow which, somehow counterintuitively, felt much colder!
I would recommend this tour as it will save you a bit of time (rather than doing it DIY, one by one). It is do-able the three activities in one day in santa village becauseeverything is walking distance in there, but if you want to know more infos and trivias, and save time on searching the places where to do activities, and queuing to buy the tickets then i would recommend you to book this one. It includes everything and the guide will answet yout questions. Thanks to our guide Alex, we manage to do everything we want to do in 1 day. We didnt have to line to buy tickets in that cold weather. The trivias and his shop recommendations are interesting and useful!
We visited the program "traditional Lapland evening", were very satisfied with this place and its employees. Host Alex was very nice and showed us a lot of new things like going to the traditional wood-burning sauna, swimming in the ice-hole, we tried the snowshoes and ended the evening with dinner in a cozy wooden cottage. highly recommend this place!
Our full day tour with Alex was even better than we expected. He's super knowledgable, friendly and happy to tell you as much, or as little, as you want to know about anything. The lunch at the Wildlife Park was delicious and included a generous spread - with vegetarian options as well. The property with the sauna and lake was beautiful! Whilst rolling in the snow or jumping in the frozen lake seemed a little insane, it was a lot of fun and felt amazing. Dinner was incredible - and again, generous. I was so content and so full for the trip home. Highly recommend this activity for anyone who is interested.
We booked the traditional Finnish sauna and ice swimming with Alex and his wife. They very kindly picked us up and dropped us off at our AirBnB, and provided us with a lot of interesting facts and information about Finnish culture and traditions on the ride there and back. The sauna was very cosy and well equipped with everything that we needed, including coffee, tea, water and lollies. Slippers and towel was also provided. The sauna experience followed by ice swimming was amazing and unforgettable! It was such a pleasant surprise to have a meal of sausages, biscuits and glogi at the end of the day too! This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Rovaniemi, and I would highly recommend it to everyone!
