Hello and thank you for your review!
I hope you and your family enjoyed the comfort of our "hideaway" :)
I really enjoyed the Ranua Zoo tour with Alex who is friendly and enthusiastic. He is keen to introduce the animals to us and even set a fire to warm us and taught us how to cut wood, it was fun! We were able to see brown bear, polar bears owl among others. Thumb up to Alex!
Thank you very much!
Alex, is simply an awesome guy.. knows everything about anything Lapland!
He took me on a 5Km hike into Kurouoma National Park.. picked me up from Rovaniemi .... and it turned out to be one amazing day! The frozen water falls were magical, so was the quick picnic of Finnish sausages...
Beautiful terrain... amazing views..
Alex’s company was really amazing... eased out, relaxing trip!
We were picked up at 5 and got to go in the Sauna at 5:45, ate at 7:15 and drove back to Rovaniemi at around 8.
The Sauna and the house were very lovely. We had the sauna all by ourselves and were left alone all the time.
The Dinner was great and we learned a lot about Finnish Traditions.
After Dinner we were shown the Kingdom of the Lord of the House, so the workshop.
It was really great to learn so much about the life here, how it was traditional and how it is now.
The few things that were not perfect:
-We felt a bit rushed. 2 hours of sauna and a bit more time for the dinner would’ve been nice.
- at Dinner we sat next to each other and just ahead of us, pointed directly at us, was a Surveilance Camera. This way we felt a little uncomfortable.
It was an amazing experience to have a Finnish style sauna by the frozen lakeside. My parents were super excited for jumping into the lake / the snow. This was really an unforgettable experience for us who live in a place without snow. The host Alex and his wife were very friendly and keen to share their local’s life with us. And unexpectedly at the end he gave us a little surprise (that I'm not gonna share here haha). Yep, I can tell this is one of the most awesome things in this trip in Finland and it's a MUST do for those who wants to know more about locals.
We went to Alex Rudyuk sauna and dinner in rovaniemi. It was an amazing expirience the sauna is located on a frozen lake in a beautiful spot. You sit in the sauna and then you can jump into the ice or little pool with icy water wich is an amazing thing to do. Dinner cooked by Alex was very tasty.
