Full description

There is something quite refreshing about taking a swim in a lake. Do this after enjoying a traditional Finnish sauna and you'll be revitalised for sure. This is just one of the pleasures that await you on this wonderful summer holiday, deep in the glorious Finnish wilderness. The nearby Lemmenjoki National Park has an abundance of rivers, forests, fells and mires, criss-crossed with extensive, marked hiking trails.

There is wildlife too - populations of brown bear, moose and golden eagles. The local village, Inari, embraces Sami history and you'll visit the Sami Siida Museum and other sites on this trip, closely linked to Lapland's indigenous people.

In June and July, enjoy the full effects of the midnight sun with no darkness at all, and in August, extended daylight hours, which means you can be out and about on this holiday sometimes very late into the evening - you'll be surprised how energising this can be!

Take a silent canoe trip on the lake in the early morning mists, go spotting wildlife by kayak or just enjoy messing about in a rowing boat - all available at Korpikartano for guests to use at their leisure.
