Glutenfree Lapland holiday with winter activities: snowmobiling, husky safari, ice-fishing and reindeer farm visit

Glutenfree Lapland holiday with winter activities: snowmobiling, husky safari, ice-fishing and reindeer farm visit

Private 4-day visit to a guesthouse located in Savukoski village, in wilderness region , where there are ten times more reindeers than inhabitants. Your host family will take you out on river Kemijoki to try winter sports, they'll take you snowmobiling and for a visit at a local reindeer farm and prepare for you delicious glutenfree meals.

Joosula  is a guesthouse hosting one group at a time. You'll get your own roomy apartment. On the first day you can take it easy, get adjusted to winter and try all kinds of winter sports. Snowshoeing is easy,e specially on the frozen, snowy river. Kicksledging requires a trail or ice but is fun. Cross-country skiing is more tricky as you need to use your hands and legs simultaneously. Try one or all of them!

Next day you'll meet a local reindeer herder, learn about reindeer herding and will meet the reindeers. A snowmobiling tour to the fells will follow including an ice-fishing tryout. If you catch fish, it will be prepared for lunch for you. 

 On safaris you will use snowmobiles, two people sharing a snowmobile. Children sit in back of their parent. There is also a cabin sleigh for the smallest family members.

Sauna with hot tub  will be waiting for you every day after the outdoor activities. Your hostess is a trained fysiotherapist. We've included one stretching session with gentle massage for the adults for the first night. It is possible to get massage or other treatments also on other night at extra cost.

Gluteinfree, culinary delicacies  are prepared for you for dinner. You will get takeaway lunch with you for the safaris and the Lappish hut is in your usage for lunch breaks as well. Lappish food is naturally low in glutein including a lot of fish and game, berries and herbs from the nature.

Rovaniemi  you will visit on your way back to Helsinki. You'll get there by a local bus and will have time for a 3-hour sledge-dog safari before leaving back to Helsinki. If you want to stay longer you can book our 2-night Rovaniemi visit with activities there.  

Sledge-dog safari  is an unforgettable experience. After a short transfer by car, we’ll arrive at a husky ranch, where these friendly dogs will bark an enthusiastic welcome to you. Before departing on the safari, you will be given instruction on how to control the sleds, which you will ride in pairs. Enjoy some hot berry juice by an open fire and chat with the head musher about these amazing northern animals once you return to the ranch.
