About
What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about traditional Finnish adventure?  Northern lights hunting,  Finnish sauna & Ice swimming, or traditional Lappish dinner in a cozy wooden cottage away from the city buzz? Correct! On this tour you will get all of the above and even a little more! Let the heat purify your body as the mellow wintery magic of Lapland purifies your soul. Let go of the stress and enjoy the presence of your loved ones. While we do our best to prepare you for an evening in the wilderness, it's up to you decide how you want to spend your time. The classic Nordic way is to spend 10-15 minutes in the sauna and then jump into ice cold water, or even a big pile of crystal white snow! A cold plunge after a steamy session increases your blood flow, relieves pressure and boosts up your endorphin levels! After this unique Finnish spa experience, it's time to get back to our little cozy wooden cottage to enjoy Blazed salmon dinner by a fireplace.

Lovely experience and excellent service by Tania and Alex (company owners). We were picked up from our hotel & transfer time was 25 mins. We had a nice Lappish mini supper which followed ice swimming/sauna rotations. The couple were very attentive but left you to have your own experience once they explained how to use the sauna/facilities

Amazing experience!! Alex and Tanja are great people who did their best for us to relax and enjoy this unique experience. The sauna was the best we experienced! Everything was well organised. The homemade food was great, and the glogi served was the best we drank in Finland. Tanja shared interesting stories about life in Finland. Alex shared great tips about chasing Northern Lights. They are really professional at what they do. But most importantly, they are super nice, kind, and welcoming people! Thanks again, Tanja & Alex!

We did two tours with Nordic Adventures and both of them were great!!! The sauna experience was very authentic and the location was just breathtakingly beautiful! Our host Tanja was very nice and gave us a lot of information about Finland and its nature and traditions. I highly recommend doing tours with Nordic Adventure! It was a very private experience.

Two thumbs up for our host Tanja, and we definitely want to recommend doing this activities with Nordic adventures! Tanja made us feel very at ease and relaxed, from the moment we reached the cottage throughout the whole evening spent there. We love all the activities we tried there, floating in the calm water, traditional sauna, and hearty finnish style dinner, except for the ice dipping which we didn’t do (we were afraid). Tanja also helped us to take plenty of nice photos! The whole experience felt surreal, it better than the other tours because this one is a private experience. Do support them!

This tour was amazing and the perfect way to start off my time in Rovaniemi.

I was pick up from my Airbnb along side other people on the tour, and we were taken to an experience I won’t soon forget. We were told how best to gain the most from of the activity, which included running in and out the sauna and the odd ice wash, which prepared our bodies for the ice swimming and after multiple dips/swims in the ice (believe me there will me multiple) it felt natural, I would say it was the anticipation that was worse than actually going in especially when the air and ice was colder than the water itself.

We got changed and headed into the house for some dinner and dinner was delicious and freshly made, I am bit of a picky eater but weirdly enough on holiday I explore more with food and I’m glad that I did because it was so good, I went back for seconds.

After some group photos we were driven back to a respected accommodations.

If I had to have a con, it was that we didn’t get to see the northern lights, but that was no fault of the tour just unlucky.

For solo travellers: The tour is advertised that the minimum booking is for two people but Nordic Adventures were extremely accommodating and allowed me, so I would ask.

Finnish sauna is a must-try on our list, especially with ice dipping in a lake. That’s why we chose this one. It was perfect! After the sauna, there is also warm and local food. Tanja and Alex were extremely helpful and introduced us to the authentic experience in Lapland! That was a memorable day.
