Lapland  - The Magical Journey

"Do not go where the path may lead; go where there is no path and leave a trail."

 

Few places awaken the inner child in us like Lapland. It is a place for adventure and where the magic of nature unfolds before your very eyes. To stand here surrounded by silence as you watch the dancing Aurora is a moment that will live with you forever. Lapland is an astonishingly beautiful place, and the first moment you step foot beyond the Arctic circle, you know you, indeed, are somewhere remarkable.

Coming to Lapland is a journey of a lifetime and one of those places on your bucket list of places to venture. The only way to describe Lapland is that there is tranquillity and a true sense of peacefulness. There is time to reflect, experience and appreciate nature and sit in awe at all around you. Lapland is a personal journey for the soul and one where memories are truly made that last forever. 

It is a place filled with a sense of magic and the sounds of nature. The hues of a winter sun barely rising above the horizon emits a delicate, ethereal glow that beautifies the landscape in soft pinky bluish glows. The trees hang frozen and take on mysterious forms, and as we pass them by, the imagination begins to see mystical shapes and creatures.

If you truly want to experience something special then join us on our Magical Lapland Adventure.

Breathtaking Moments

Winter in Lapland is a time that challenges the mind with the seemingly endless darkness from 3 pm and the nights seem to be of endless darkness yet in the darkness we are able to see what is never visible in the daylight because actually there is sunlight from thousands of suns far far away. In a place with no light pollution, the sun sends greetings in the dark. Particles from violent storms on the surface of the sun travel towards the earth and collide with our magnetic field and create a solar storm we call the Aurora Borealis or the northern lights. There is an air of excitement as we head out to search the heavens for a glimpse of these heavenly lights. Suddenly we see the bright light glimmer on the horizon. We pause and then the sky is filled with the dancing Aurora. They shimmer and dart across the sky, sometimes faint and other times so colourful that the heavens seem alive. Seeing them we forget the outside world and drift with our thoughts. This is a moment we will never forget.

More Reindeer than people

There is something magical about Reindeer that illuminates a softness in every heart. Maybe its those fond memories of childhood when we wrote a letter to santa and waited for Rudolph and his friends to come with santa. Lapland is the land of the Reindeer and the indigenous Sami. There are over 200,00 reindeer in Finnish Lapland and you are guaranteed to see them on any of our adventures. For the Sami people, the Reindeer is revered in Sami culture because for thousands of years these perfectly adapted Arctic survivors have provided families with meat and milk; hides for clothing, shoes and tents; bones and antlers for tools, handicrafts and weapons; and sinews for sewing. This is reflected in the language: there are thought to be about 1,000 Sami words devoted to reindeer appearance, behaviour and habits.

The Sami

 The Sami are indigenous people who inhabit Sápmi, their preferred name for Lapland, and adjacent areas of northern Norway, Sweden, and Finland, as well as the Kola Peninsula of Russia. They are speakers of the Sami languages, which are endangered, and their unique way of life is something beyond most people's imagination. No journey to this part of the world would ever be complete without learning, meeting and listening to their stories and understanding the actual value of indigenous languages, peoples and, of course, the Power of the Yoik.

The Sami know and live in this hostile landscape and it is a privilege  to learn more about their way of life beyond the Arctic circle and the implications of climate change which even threatens their world and that of. the Reindeer.

Rejuvinate in the afterglow

 

Lapland is a journey into a pristine environment where silence is golden, and all our adventures are created to enable you to experience nature at its best. This is the time to reconnect with your heart and your inner soul. Breathe the pure air, reflect and embrace a magical world filled with enriching experiences and in doing so, find your inner happy place.

Lapland’s location above the Arctic Circle also means that during the winter season, the sun never rises above the horizon which means there is no light for a couple of weeks and this is known as the polar nights. These extreme contrasts in light are caused by the rotation of the earth in relation to the position of the sun and the further north you go the greater the contrasts.

Imagine that feeling in January of seeing the sun return and feeling it on your face is so overwhelming and is like seeing the sun for the first time in your life. In the winter there is the twilight light and the most beautiful light., almost like a long, slow sunrise without the sun. If there is a clear sky there is a soft pink light that gets spread over the landscape and it is so beautiful.

This is a photographers dream to try and capture the hues and the stillness in the landscape. ~Every moment in this cherished land is one to savour

Heartfelt Moments

Heading to Lapland is always something filled with excitement and the unknown and nothing could be more rewarding than a visit to Father Christmas. Lapland and the far north have been home to Santa, and every year, thousands of families make their way to his home in the far north. Maybe you wrote a letter to Santa when you were a child and sent it off, hoping to receive your wanted gift at Christmas time. Over hundreds of years, the story of Santa has evolved and was originally inspired by Santa-like figures from the Norse god Oden. Through the centuries these stories and myths developed and in the 16th century were combined with St Nicholas to create the Santa figure we are familiar with today. The original home of Santa was said to be the north pole but the people of Finland recognised that the north pole was a cold and inhospitable place where no herd of reindeer could live so in 1927, on Finnish radio by broadcaster Marcus Rautioit was announced that Santas workshop had been found in Korvatunturi fel.
