Land of Light Tour
PRICING 1700€ / person inc. VAT
On the Land of Light tour you will stay 6-days away from the tourist centers, surrounded by peace of nature. You will explore the nature in various ways: hiking with a reindeer, climbing on a fell, canoeing and foraging. We take at most six guests per week to ensure a personal and cozy atmosphere. On most tour weeks we hardly meet other people. This is no mass tourism!
Please note that in June we are experiencing the nightless night, which means there’s daylight 24 hours a day. Days are still long in August but by the end of the month there are already chances of seeing the Northern Lights. September is the month of foliage and proper dark evenings. Different months have different characters, which affect the program of the tour.
Land of Light tour is accessible to anyone who enjoys outdoors and occasional trekking.
Organized in June, August, September and October.
Price includes: 6 nights in a fully equipped chalet, all breakfasts, 5 lunches, 5 dinners, entrance in the ”sauna world” -spa, sauna every evening, activities as described above, all local transport from and to Muonio, Levi or Kittilä airport and related to the tour.
