    Revontulet (Northern Lights) #5

    March 19 in Finland ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    Another fabulous look light show in Finnish Lapland. This time from our little cabin in Äkäslompolo. The night sky was awash with the lights dancing across the heaven and a much deeper green than previously. Sonia braved the cold to get the photos as I have been unwell and was just as delighted to view them from the cabin window. They never cease to amaze us.Read more

    Finnish forests

    March 15 in Finland ⋅ ❄️ 2 °C

    From Rovaniemi to the SnowVillage in Lainiotie, for a night in a cabin, and we are so glad that we did not spend a night in the oh so cold Ice Hotel! Instead we opted for the warmth of a cabin but drank and dined in the ice bar and restaurant. It truly is an amazing place. Forget about the Ice Bars in the cities, this is really something else. The theme of the season is Game of Thrones and so each room in the Ice Bar and Hotel features a different aspect from the series. You don’t need to have watched the program to appreciate the scale of work and skill that goes into carving the ice. Our cabin accommodation was superb and are looking forward to our upcoming stay in Äkäslompolo.Read more

    Äkäslompo

    March 17 in Finland ⋅ ☁️ -3 °C

    Day 2 in Äkäslompolo has brought us snow. It is so quiet as it falls. I am still surprised by its stillness. I woke up to find the cars outside completely covered in snow. I am also beginning to perfect the art of bed making Nordic style. Yesterday was a day of rest as we have booked a series of things for the next few days. First up - ice fishing.Read more

    Cabin fever

    March 21 in Finland ⋅ ☀️ -1 °C

    After a day staying in as I was not feeling up to it, we set off for a trip to visit a reindeer farm owned and run by a Sami family. It was so good to see that pulling tourists through a forest is not the only business these reindeers do. This really was a reindeer farm where they are bred and well looked after. We learned so much and best of all the place was so peaceful. Even the family expressed how peaceful their lives were, with the work changing season by season. A truly wonderful day.Read more

    Staying at Finnish cottage

    February 1, 2017 in Finland ⋅ ☀️ -16 °C

    After having a late breakfast .We went from Levi to Lanio where we stayed at one of the cottages in the snow village . This came equipped with a traditional Finnish sauna to be used after hanging out in the snow.

    Snow village

    February 2, 2017 in Finland ⋅ ☁️ -8 °C

    We stayed at the snow village. We explored the reindeer farm nearby and learned more about how they breed reindeers. The snow village offers free shuttle to reindeer farm so remember to ask them!
    They start your experience with a tour of the snow village where they show you the various suites . Each suite has its own design and artwork and its stunning to see the entire structure made with snow and some basic metal framework . At night we made reservations at the ice hotel . This is highly recommended . You can have a drink at the ice bar and they made special 4 course vegetarian meal for me(my husband preferred having local fish and cuisine) . After a highly satisfying meal they prep you at around 9pm for your stay in your suits . The temperature is around 0 degrees Celsius to -7 degrees Celsius - so listen carefully to their instructions . We were asked to keep our thermals and change in the heated lobby area (which had hot drinks, showers and toilets- an old couple decided to stay out here :p) and then we were given warm sleeping bags to sleep in . After a good night sleep they wake you up with a warm bedside drink at the desired time . We also got certificate for a successful stay in snow village- a must try experience at least once in your life!Read more

    Eishotel

    March 21, 2013 in Finland ⋅ ⛅ -7 °C

    Mit Schneemobilen sind wir zum Eishotel nach Vesikkovaara gefahren. Die Schneemobile sind natürlich der Hammer, aber das Eishotel war wirklich wunderschön und erstaunlich. Jedes Jahr aufs Neue wird das Hotel wieder aufgebaut, mit neuen Skulpturen und individuellen Zimmern.
