The area that Alex lives in is very remote with the nearest property being a couple of miles away. You drive down a single lane track with Alex happily telling you how often he has to take the snow plough out and clear it just so he has access to everything. Once he explains how the sauna works he leaves you to it for a couple of hours and goes to prepare the BBQ salmon and potatoes. The sauna itself is a wood burning one and for me it was a million times better than the saunas you are probably used to in hotels etc. I usually cant last very long in those places.
It's just a short walk through the snow to the frozen lake and I'm so glad i was brave enough to jump in as it really was a once in a lifetime experience. Would highly recommend it to everyone.
The food we had was amazing and also in such an idyllic location. This is the food experience that everyone else is trying to recreate in all the hotels and restaurants. We had the same type of meal of salmon and potatoes and sour cream a couple of other times on the trip but this was the best by far...
Do yourself a favour and book this trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed the night, our guide was especially informative and good company. The sauna experience was a perfect opportunity to relax after our trip into Rovaniemi and the meal was a simple yet delightful set of homemade glazed salmon and vegetables.

This was a great way to see a very unique landscape, three spectacular frozen waterfalls. Our guide picked us up form our hotel and drove us the hour to Korouoma. A walk down a well marked path brought us into the canyon. We followed the partially frozen stream through some very pretty scenery. The three waterfalls were each quite different to the other and all equally spectacular. Some of the track was quite steep but there were good rope hand holds in those areas.
After the second waterfalll our guides directed us towards the third and final waterfall whilst he went back to the bottom of the track into the canyon to get a fire started for our simple lunch snack.
Lunch was a hot drink, sausage on the BBQ and ginger cookies.
We then had the long steep climb out of the canyon back to the car.
We were there in early December and the waterfalls were not completely frozen, I imagine later in the winter they would be even more amazing.
Our guide was a very quiet person, happy to answer questions but not forthcoming with information if not asked.

We booked the full day adventure to the Ranua Zoo and Lappish evening in the wilderness with sauna, ice swimming and dinner. We enjoyed every minute from being picked up and driven out of town to the Zoo and spending the morning looking at the animals, having lunch and then back to our accommodation for some relaxation before being picked up again and being taken to a cute little cottage in the forest where we enjoyed a sauna and a dip into the ice lake. The lake was breathtaking (literally), but an amazing experience. Alex and his wife then prepared a beautiful dinner that we ate in the cosy cottage. They were wonderful hosts and lovely people. I would highly recommend this company and our time spent with them has been one of the highlights of our trip.
