Adventure on the ice of lake Ranua

During the winter excursion you will enjoy the arctic delights of open air in the middle of Lapland nature. Lake Ranua provides a perfect setting for (ice) fishing. (Force major: If the lake is not frozen, the AuroraHut igloo will be moved to the land near the lake.)

You will hear stories of the Finnish way of life while enjoying the beautiful and peaceful nature of the Lake Ranua. In clear weather, the starry sky is your roof and if you’re lucky, the sky will show the amazing colors of the northern lights. After an outdoor trip, the wood-heated sauna by the lake will warm your body and mind.

Enjoy a three-course buffet dinner at the main restaurant on every tour day. A Lappish breakfast basket with local delicacies will be served to you to start a new beautiful morning.
