Time: 12.00-16.30

Join us for a private and unforgettable adventure where you'll discover the best of what Finnish lakes have to offer. 

Step into the authentic Finnish sauna culture
Our experience begins by immersing yourself in the rich tradition of Finnish sauna culture. Together, we'll prepare the wood-heated sauna in the traditional way, while sharing fascinating insights into the rituals and customs that make Finnish saunas so special. You'll even have the chance to create your own sauna whisk, made from branches of the birch tree, known as "Vihta" in Finnish. As you gently slap the Vihta on your body, feel your blood circulation increase and enjoy the delightful aroma that fills the sauna. 

Canoeing on an Arctic lake
While the sauna heats up, it's time to embrace the serenity of Lake Norvajärvi with a peaceful canoe trip. Paddle on the water surrounded by picturesque Finnish cottages. When you return to the shore, the sauna will be waiting for you, inviting you to unwind and relax. Don't forget to try your self-made birch whisk! After a refreshing swim in the Arctic lake, recline in our comfortable chairs on the lakeside terrace. Ignite the campfire, take a cold drink, and let go of all the stress and pressures of modern life. It's in moments like these that you'll understand why Finland is known as the happiest country in the world.

Snacks & drinks
We provide you with non-alcoholic drinks, cookies and marshmallows. For an additional fee (+25€ per adult, +15€ per child) we prepare you a lunch in the Lappish hut which will be served at the start of the experience. Lunch includes a Lappish style reindeer hot-dog together with some side dishes. There are vegan/gluten-free alternatives available. Also, if you rather not eat reindeer meat we can offer you a regular hot-dog. You can also decide to bring your own food and make use of our cooking facilities (fireplace/barbecue).

Optional use of hot tub
It is possible to include the use of the hot tub to your experience for an additional fee of 100€. Select this option after you check-out.

What our customers say about us

I was with Arctos Lapland for the spa experience, which was amazing. The hosts were extremely welcoming and open to all questions about the region. Don’t hesitate to try the ice hole after taking a sauna, it is the best feeling ever!
It was a pleasant evening. Raymond and Paula are both very welcoming and everything was well organized for us. The kota and beach sauna are full of atmosphere, from the decoration to the peaceful environment. The view to the lake is amazing. In this place one can truly feel disconnected from the citylife.
Unique experience, with a welcoming guide. The place is quiet and private, great for watching northern lights if the sky is clear, as there is no light polution. Will absolutely visit again.
