A day at the farmhouse

Experience life at a traditional Lapland estate through relaxing activities

What do we do?

Upon arriving at Lapland Deluxe, we’ll show you around the estate and share stories of its fascinating historical chapters.

After the introduction, we’ll strap snowshoes on our feet and venture out on the frozen Lake Vanttausjärvi right outside our door. The excursion is carried out in a quiet pace to leave room for thoughts and feelings under the glittering arctic sky.

Back on land, we’ll build a fire together; in case you’re not familiar with the activity, we’re happy to show you how it’s done. Once we get it going, we’ll roast snacks and enjoy conversation – or just sit still and relax staring at the fire and listening to the silent nature around us.

When in Finland, sauna is a must. We’ll instruct you on heating our traditional sauna. Once its ready, you get to enjoy its cleansing heat. You’ll also have a unique chance to contrast the heat of sauna with ice swimming in the adjacent lake Vanttausjärvi!

You’ll be safely guided through all activities.

Throughout your time as our guest, we’ll gladly tell you stories and share information on nature, our way of life and the history of the farmhouse and the estate.

You’re our guest and we’re here for you.​
