Finnish Lapland

The Expedition:

It will seem like just a return. Even if you’ve never been there. Finland in winter is like this: the fairy tale that they always read you in the evening.

Whiter than book drawings. Colder, yes, than any imagination, even the most heated. Three dimensions. Five senses. So dive into the white of the great North and discover things you never thought you were able to do.

Husky Safari and Reindeer Safari will be two activities that will make you fall into the classic Finnish setting, and this thanks also to the Sami population
who will be the guides of this last excursion; moving through snow-covered woods and prairies, thanks to the dogs and reindeer sleds, will make you forget the everyday life of
usual means of rediscovering and trying again the true contact with nature. The further beauty of these forests can also be admired thanks to a morning
organized with snowshoes in the muffled silence of the woods.

Do not forget a Nordic tradition such as “ice fishing”.
The beauty of ice fishing lies in its simplicity, and is perhaps the main reason why it is considered a kind of meditation.
Waiting patiently for something to happen (and often nothing happens) purifies the mind and does not tire. Keywords: silence. Strange as it may seem, spirituality resides in the idea of ​​a swarming body of water
of life covered by a still and silent layer of ice.

Then to “hunt” for sunrise at sunset aboard snowmobiles, in the midst of the famous “snow giants.”

The expedition will end with a visit and dinner at the famous village of snow and ice, where the creativity of man shapes blocks of ice based on a theme that is chosen at the beginning of winter.
