Mental and physical wellbeing from Wilderness

Experiencing the woodburning sauna and bathing with lake water is a time travel to traditional Finnish lifestyle. You can also dip yourself into a hot tub to blow the cobwebs away. Staying overnight in silence, in the middle of Arctic Desert is an incomparable experience. Linking with Wilderness Nature relaxes and gives you mental and physical wellbeing. Silence unifies and you can recharge your batteries with no rush.

Finnish Lapland is famous for its Polar night. This means that in December-January, you can sense only a bit of daylight, between 1-5 hours a day. Feel the Polar Night in the wilderness with us. As the Spring comes, the amount of light increases and nature wakes up to flourish again.

In the Summertime you can sense the Midnight Sun. This means that the sun doesn’t set at all and you can experience nature’s energy with all your senses. Experience this uniqueness of the wilderness with us.

Transportation from Nellim to Onnela is included in our services. In the Summer we shift by boat, in the Winter by snowmobiles.
