What better way to start the New Year: An unforgettable experience in a fairy tale environment, enjoying the wilderness of pure nature and the comfort of a very clean and cozy cabin. Amazing for the whole family. The very well organised and incredible activities, the delicious food and very friendly and helpful staff made our three-day stay just perfect. A really big thank you to Antti-Pekka and the whole team for everything. A special thanks to Mia and Avi for their much appreciated support and flexibility. We will be back! :-)
I stayed with a group at Valkea, but I had a lodge for myself: consisting of kitchen, fireplace, table, living with sofa and tv, bedroom and balcon. It is quite new (3 years) and in perfect condition. The materials are well chosen. The windows that open have their insect screen (when I was there I saw few insects). To have your private sauna was fantastic. The view from the balcon could be better, since the restaurant building is blocking partly the view towards the lake. The complex offers also a restaurant/bar. Very friendly staff. In winter you can do winter sports, in summer you can enjoy the lake, walk into the woods... This accomadation is thus suited both for summer and winter. The city of Rovaniemi is only 50 km away.
I am still talking about this amazing adventure! Every day we had an adventure we had never ever had in our lives before which was so exciting! We had excellent guides who took us snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, reindeer sleighing,dog sledding and to spend the day with Sixten a Sami elder.They were all incredible.The wilderness surrounding the lodge is stunningly beautiful..and you have it all to yourself.We were there a week and we did something different each day or you can just relax in your spotless cabin with a sauna and wood burning stove.The food at the lodge was delicious! I walked around with a smile on my face the entire time I was there :) We went to see the Northern lights...but it wouldn't have mattered if we hadn't...it was that much fun! We did see them four times..twice they were the " regular " northern lights and twice they were the amazing waves of color, dancing aurora borealis lights...we were very lucky. You can book your adventure directly with the lodge...Mia was wonderful at helping us decide what activities to do....we got the package deal and then added on activities. We flew in to Rovaniemi,the capital of Lapland. They pick you up at the airport and the lodge is about an hour away. Valkea Lodge is a special place...AP, Mia, Robert, Adam, Paula and the entire awesome staff work together to make this an unforgettable experience...I loved loved loved this trip. If you are thinking of going to Lapland,come here. You will be so glad you did!…
We've had a wonderful and unforgettable experience!!! Rooms were super clean and cosy. You get everything you need to enjoy the wilderness of Lapland. Breakfast is really good, every morning warm bread, a selection of meat, cheese ... but also yoghurt with seeds and berries, eggs, sausages, meatballs ... Dinner after a day out in nature was equally great. Every day a starter, main course and dessert.
If it can't get better because the nature is gorgeous, the lodge is state-of-the-art, the staff is super friendly, helpful and funny, the food is delicious and the activities are pure fun - and all of a sudden the northern lights are dancing on the sky... Thank you very much Team Valkea Arctic Lodge for this amazing experience! The cabins are spacious, well equipped (even a small kitchen, a fireplace, a couch and a TV) and clean. Usefull addition: a dryer for shoes and gloves. We did: - A guided snowshoe tour through the forest. The guide has made the trail a day ago so it was easy to walk (compared to deep powder snow) but still adventurous. The guide told and showed us a lot about the flora and fauna. - A snowmobile tour - fun! :) - A short reindeer sledge tour and a visit of an ice hotel. - A dog sledding tour. It's really impressive how much power these dogs have and it's such a nice experience to drive through the forest in silence. All these activities included a lunch prepared on the open fire. Delicious :) - A snowshoe hike to Pello on our own. - Crosscountry skiing on our own. The whole week was perfectly organised, we had all the information needed. Even a special wish, an optional birthday cake, was no problem. Highly recommended!…
