Lapland Yoga Tour 2019: polar day or northern lights

Lapland Yoga Tour 2019: polar day or northern lights

Come along and pick up new experiences on an easy-going yoga tour from Inari to Rovaniemi! If we are lucky, we might also see northern lights dancing on he northern sky. 

Lake Inari   is the third biggest lake of Finland, which is also called the sea of Lapland. After getting a short briefing on the Sámi culture at Sámi museum Siida we'll take a boat tour to the Ukko island, one of the wholy places of the indigenous Sámi people. If weather is favorable to us, we'll have a hatha yoga session outdoors. At the hotel lakeside sauna is waiting for us. 

In the evening we'll have dinner together at the 8th best restaurant in Finland, the Aanaar restaurant of hotel Kultahovi. Seasonal 3-course Inari menu will be served.

Night in an aurora cabin might be the experience of a lifetime, if northern lights show up. In the end of August nights are already dark enough so northern lights can be seen. Another night in the very beautiful Inari Wilderness hotel has been counted in a standard room, which also is new and very comfortable.  

Kiilopää  is the highest hill top in the Saariselkä are, 546m.  You can get on top by climbing stairs up to see breathtaking views to the Nattas fell. There are also 3km and 6km trails available. Everyone can choose their own path and end up to the smoke sauna to have yoga and sauna. 

After the sauna we'll continue our tour to Tankavaara, where we first have delicious food and stay overnight in funny Lappsih style gold digger's cabins with shower in a separate building. Should this feel too plain for you, there are also normal holiday apartments available.  

Vuotso  is the next village south from Tankavaara and there we'll meet a Sámi artista, teacher and hostess of a reindeer farm Tuula-Maija Magga-Hetta, who has grounded a Sámi gallery in her parent's old house.  

Tuula-Maija will tell about her culture in her own lively way. We might end up singing in traditional Sámi way or making life triangles, who knows. 

Päivi Romo  is an sertified SJL® yoga teacher, who will travel with you and practise yoga with you. Her sessions are gentle hatha yoga. The exercises will influence on you body, muscles and nerve system. Hatha yoga is easy and might seem like a combination of breathing exercises and gentle streching but it is possible to increase your muscle power also in this very safe way. Each day you will have a yoga session in a different location, on an island, in sauna premises and in the Sámi gallery.
