Optionals

Although your itinerary includes many activities you may wish to try some optionals (prices are an indication only)

Searching for perch with snowshoes

Ice fishing, or as we say pilkki, is a popular hobby in Finland. This ice fishing trip heads to Lake Äkäslompolo, which locates in the heart of village. Once there, we put snowshoes on and search for suitable location for ice fishing. After we have drilled holes to the ice we sit back and see which brings the best catch, grubs or worms. During the trip we enjoy hot berry juice.

Duration: 2 hours
Price: 35 € / adult and 24,50 € / child

Reindeer ride to the Wilderness

We drive by car about twenty minutes to meet reindeer, these adorable half-wild animals. After all the reindeer are harnessed, we sit down in sleighs and wrap ourselves in warm fur blankets. The three- kilometer ride allows us to experience the true wilderness of Lapland and magical tranquility of the forest.

After half an hour ride we enjoy homemade berry juice by an open fire in a Lappish tepee, kota, and hear
stories of reindeer and their annual cycle of life. You have also possibility take photos with your arctic
traveling companion.

Duration: 2 hours 45 mins
Price: 143 € / adult and 100.10 € / child

Snowshoe trip to Ylläs

The ancient Finns roamed the forests on wooden skis fashioned from birch and the Lapps sped across the snow in reindeer sleighs. Nowadays we head for the fells on snowshoes, following the gullies carved by the glaciers of the last Ice Age. For about three kilometres we head up through the rugged scenery of the Ylläs-Pallas National Park. This leisurely pace allows us time to observe the world around us, and with any luck, we may catch a
glimpse of the ancient spirits of Lapland.

Duration: 2.5 hours
Price: 49 € / adult and 34,30 € / child

Husky Farm Visit and 9km Sleigh Ride

At our destination, the Ylläs Husky farm, the husky guide will introduce us to the hundred Alaskan and Siberian huskies. When we are familiar with the customs and habits of the dogs, we take part in a 9 kilometer husky sleigh safari. Every adult participant can steer the sleigh. After the trip we drink coffee in Lapp teepee with the husky farm guides, where they will tell us a lot more about the interesting life of a musher.

Duration: 2.5 hours / 9km
Price: 155 € / adult (sharing husky-sleigh) and 108.50 € / child

Cross country skiing school for families

We will start the tour by choosing the ski equipment. The teacher will first show the basic techniques of cross-country skiing and then we practice on a flat surface. When it is going on well enough we head for a short trip to the maintained skiing tracks.

Duration: 2 hours
Price: 50 € / adult and 35 € / child

Art of Ice & Snow

1500 tons of snow and 300 tons of ice are used every year to create the unique Lainio Snow Village. Artists from around the world spend many hours crafting the ice blocks into fantastic sculptures. Located only 35 km (30 min) away from Äkäslompolo it is within easy reach for us. We will go there by bus and enjoy a guided tour through the hotel, ice restaurant and bar. Before we head back to Äkäslompolo, we will enjoy
a hot drink with bun in the Lainio inn.
NB Snow Village opens on 16th December 2021.

Duration: 2 hours
Price: 65 € / adult and 45.50 € / child
