“Complete plug-off in an amazing wilderness”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were a company of four guys looking for a combined hunting and fishing extended weekend. Couldn't have found a better choice. Starting at 8 am at Helsinki we reached the cabin around 4 pm, extremely fluent taken the last 15 km were an icredible off-road experience in heavy duty 4-wheel and even 6 -wheel drive vehicles. Catching trout from a picturesque creek, hiking to a beautiful riverside site, camping overnight and hunting for ducks, fox and willow grouse on the way back was all we came here for. Sauna baths and deliciious dinners every night finalized the experience. Heikki & Anna, Thank You so much!

“Wonderful Northern Lights Experience”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We Arrived at our accommodation after a picturesque Sledge ride across the fells from a local farmhouse.

The Wilderness Lodge itself provides great Food, Excursions, Hospitality & Surroundings, in a secluded tranquil location.

Our hosts, Heikki & Anna provided a warm welcome, were super attentive during our stay, tailoring everything to our needs; nothing was too much trouble.

The all-inclusive stay provided activities such as cross country skiing, sledging, snowshoeing and hunting; the personal transportation to and from Ivalo Airport saved the worry of car hire and snow driving.

And special thanks for the magical scenery and wonderful display of the Northern Lights !

“A time of refreshment in the adventurous Lapland”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We spent 5 days in the breathtaking nature of Lapland barely touched by human. The time was refreshing both physically and mentally. Heikki took us on a hike from the vast golden-yellow birch forests swarming with wildlife to the rocky, barren hilltops where the wind roars free. Among the hills and valleys we walked miles up and down following ancient rivers of stone; drank fresh, hot coffee from our kuksa's boiled above the glimmering wood of our cracking campfire. We hiked through old swamps lasting miles and miles fallowed by the curious eyes of reindeer´s running by, ravens and earth-eagles circling above.
The cabin sight was excellent. A perfect display of luxurious simplicity with top quality equipment and utilities. We will definitely want to return to this place once again.

“Perfect vacation”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We wanted to get away, relax and see and show the nature of Lapland to our son-in-law. And not to be in an tourist place. Heikki was a very good guide. He knows the nature and showed special things like an eagle in the distance. The nature enchanted me totally: the quiet, peace and simple beauty. The Cabin is so beautiful and well planned; a little bit of luxury with sauna-gowns and menu with reindeer-meat and salmon.
I have not done much hiking with a backpack, but it went surprisingly well, though the men carried heavier loads.
Travelling with ATV made me nervous, because my husband and son in-law had never driven such, let alone in a difficult terrain. I travelled in Heikki`s bigger vehicle.

Liked best: The facilities are brand new and a bit of a luxury in the wilderness.
Liked least: Maybe the ATV ride, but even so the views were fabulous
