Welcome to Luosto
You will be greeted by a driver and then transferred from Rovaniemi airport to your hotel. You will get to relax and be able to enjoy a nice family meal before your adventure really begins tomorrow.
After serving in the Royal Marine Commando's for 5 years and working as a professional sailing & outdoor instructor, I was looking for a place to fulfill my vision and dreams. I found it here in the Finnish Lapland, where I can share the natural phenomena, opportunities, and beauty this amazing place has to offer. Lapland is also a great place for me to raise my family. Local nature connects people as you can share beautiful moments with strangers in very peaceful environments. Winters here are long, and without doubt this is the hardest job I have ever done. But I love it and I can promise the warmest of welcomes and an amazing time!
Today, you will be visiting a husky farm where you will learn all about huskies and just how important they are to the Finnish people. You will start the day with breakfast again before being taken to the husky farm.
A local will guide you around the farm, where you will learn all about huskies and how to use them to pull a sledge as well as hearing some stories about the dogs. Following this, you will embark on a 10km husky ride where you can use the mushing skills you would have learnt to guide the dogs. These beautiful, energetic dogs will take you on a tour of the incredible landscape and you’ll get to spend time interacting with these affectionate animals.
You will then return to the hotel where you will have dinner and have some time to relax by the fire or maybe enjoy some well earned relaxation time in the sauna.
After a buffet breakfast at the hotel, you will embark on an exciting 2 Hour snowmobile ride around the snow covered forests of Luosto.
Your expert guide will help you get the hang of your snowmobile, then lead you on a stunning adventure around the part of the world that is one of Europe’s last remaining wild places.
After this, you will have definitely earned yourself some relaxation time. So you will head off to the lakeside spa where you will have the chance to sit back, relax and take in the stunning views. There is a sauna, jacuzzi and even an ice pool if you are brave enough!
Return and enjoy passing time at your leisure, drinking in your surroundings and enjoying great Finnish food.
Wake up on your penultimate morning in paradise to a buffet breakfast. You will have the opportunity to spend this day at your lesuire, exploring the village or going further afield on an organised or self-led activity.
After a relaxing day at the hotel, you will head off on your Northern Lights tour. The tour takes you in the beautiful snowy landscapes of wilderness, where there is no light pollution and a good possibility to see the Northern lights .
Before the tour we will plan our destinations carefully by checking local weather forecast, cloudiness and Northern Lights data. When we stop we will make a campfire and your guide will tell you interesting facts about Northern lights, Lappish nature and history. Your local guide will also give you information about how to photograph Northern lights and help you to take the best shots, for lasting memories.
