The sauna has a heated relax room and an outdoor fireplace attached.
The private sauna is available to book and use for free and can accommodate 4 - 5 people at once.
This cozy common area is for all our guests where you can have a camp fire, relax and socialize. It can accommodate 20 - 30 people around the fire and has benches with reindeer fur for seating. You can also use the fireplace as a grill.
The camp is located at the lake Alttajärvi, which is frozen through the winter. This makes it possible for our guests to try ice fishing in the lake. All the equipment for ice fishing is provided to all our guests, free of cost.
We have a large dressing room that can accommodate up to 24 - 30 people at once. This area is used before and after the tours to dress up for the Arctic conditions. Overalls, boots, socks, gloves, balaclavas, helmets, goggles etc. are provided free of cost along with all tours. These can also be rented, if you need them throughout your stay with us.
