ARRIVAL

Arctic Adventure Island

Arctic Adventure Island surrounded by fresh sea water, is a short sail away from the city and the SnowCastle area. Take a boat tour or sail your way to the island in the summer and autumn time with the traditional sailing ship. Enjoy the silence, white night magic and when autumn arrives – the Northern Lights. Take a midnight sun cruise or go for a stress free hike. In the end of the summer and autumn time the forest is filled with wild berries and mushrooms. The Island offers a great possibility to see the local wildlife e.g. sea eagles, elks and rabbits. During the spring months we have the special opportunity to see a great number of seals that gather in the area to breed. Trips to the Adventure Island are available all-year-round.

Sauna Experiences

Have you ever experienced the traditional sauna in the Arctic archipelago? Bathing in the sauna on Arctic Adventure Island is far from everyday life, surrounded by the sea and forest. The fresh nature pampers both body and soul. For Finns the traditional way to enjoy the combination of hot sauna and refreshing cold – dip into the sea water or enjoy the hot tub! After relaxing in the sauna you will enjoy local drinks. During the summer the Nightless Night is full of light, and in the darkness of fall you might even be able to see the Northern Lights! We have 3 saunas and 2 hot tubs available on the island. To reserve the whole area for your group, please ask an offer from our sales office.
