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 start on a snowshoeing excursion on the frozen Lake Vanttausjärvi that’s basically an extension of our estate in the winter. On the way back to the farmhouse we’ll light a fire together and roast snacks around it. Before going inside, we’ll have a good laugh tobogganing and trying out a popular form of winter transport in Lapland, the kicksled.
You can also try ice fishing if you like – the best time is in March–April. On the lake, a hole must be drilled through the ice for fishing – we’ll show you how to use the ice drill. Then we’ll lower our bait under the ice, sit on camping stools and enjoy the quiet and peaceful atmosphere of Lapland’s winter nature while waiting to catch some fish.
You’ll be safely guided during all activities. Throughout your time with us, 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.
