Winter Weekend Break of Hunting For Silence, Starry Sky & Northern Lights in the Heart of Finland
Sitting around a open fire surrounded by mystical forest and listening to silence whilst waiting for the auroras to show and amaze you. Certainly, you do not want to miss out one of the unforgettable memory of seeing the nature’s most magnificent performance, shown only for the lucky one’s.
What would be more romantic than experience the silence, starry sky and magical Northern Lights in the Heart of Finland. And stay a weekend in a hideaway type of Manor, Lakomäki Wilderness lodge, enjoying sauna, the authentic flavours and atmosphere, in the middle of nowhere.
Already in autumn, when the nights start getting dark, it is possible to book a guided walk into the Pyhä-Häkki National Park, away from the artificial lights. If the sky is clear we see the bright stars and with a little luck colourful northern lights. The northern lights season starts from September and ends mid-April. Feel and enjoy the presence of silence throughout the tour ~ you stay.
Day 1. You will arrive in a charming and small Forest Manor along the twisting and narrow roads by car. This 130 years old log manor is located in a peaceful area amidst untouched forests. Having accommodated in the manor, you will have an excursion around the place and have a possibility to have a sauna. It’s time for dinner that is made from local & wild ingredients. After dinner you’ll be seated in to a sledge pulled by a ATW and we start driving into the forest. After a while of sledding we arrive to a camp by lake. There you make a fire together with the guide and make some hot chocolate. If we are lucky and the sky is clear we can enjoy the northern lights dancing in the sky.
Day 2. After country style breakfast, we test and practice snowshoeing for the evening aurora trip.
Before evening, It’ time to try your luck with ice fishing, you will be given equipment and introductions to winter fishing. We enjoy packed lunch during the ice fishing trip and grill sausages by open fire. Today dinner will be served earlier, before aurora hunting trip to Pyhä-Häkki National park. After short relaxation and dreaming of a clear sky and the northern light we are ready to explore nightly nature. Sitting around an open fire surrounded by mystical forest park and listening to silence whilst waiting for the auroras to show. Certainly, you do not want to miss out one of the unforgettable memory of seeing the nature’s most magnificent performance, shown only for the lucky one’s. After arrival to Manor you have small snack and hot drink and possibility to night sauna.
