LODGE SPIRIT

"Stay in Freedom"

Do you dream of staying in a COMFORTABLE log cabin, surrounded by the boreal forest of Finnish Lapland ?

Is there a little Jack London in you or Sylvain Tesson and his cabin in Siberia ?

 

Do you want to live a stay as you wish and be at the forefront of observing the marvelous northern lights from September to March?

 

Our traditional log chalets, with private sauna, facing the lake, you are waiting for a refreshing holiday in the heart of the Taiga.

Located on the edge of the Hossa National Park in Finland, you can leave your chalet on foot, on snowshoes or in a boat for long walks. Or simply read in front of the fireplace in winter, on the pontoon in summer, have a good sauna, fish or even swim ... Our guides will also be there for supervised activities to book: Dog sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cani-rando, ice fishing, sophrology…

*8 days / 7 nights / 2 pers. / Twin room.
