REINDEER - THE INTRIGUING ARCTIC ANIMALS
A guided trip to the reindeer farm will give you the opportunity to get to know these excotic animals and their herders. Reindeer sleigh rides and reindeer lassooing are just a part of the adventures you can experience in an reindeer farm.
FREEZING COLD AND STEAMING HOT
One of the most unique adventures is floating in the rapids on Kitka river, in the dark, banks lit by candles. Robust dry suit will keep you warm and dry and let you enjoy the slow current of the river, the dark skies and the relaxing feeling one can only experience in the water. Your day will be fulfilled with a steaming hot sauna experience in one of the diverse saunas of our area - five of them ranked in the list of top 8 saunas in Finland!
