One of the reasons we travel is to experience and learn about other cultures. Try something you have never tried before. Maybe even get a little out of your comfort zone?
Imagine if you can, you have traveled to a destination in Finland known as Ylläs, located in Lapland, approx. 93 miles north of the Arctic Circle.
You are dressed in an Arctic survival suit, which makes you look like a combination of a Teletubby and the Michelin Man and you are floating around in the icy water of Lake Ylläsjarvi while big pieces of ice are drifting by you.
You feel like you are floating in mid-air as if there is zero gravity.
A few snowflakes softly land on your face. You look around, and all you can see is snow and ice, yet you are snuggly warm. There is a unique silence here. Pure relaxation and nature are galore!
If you are looking for a unique, exotic, and I may even say a bit unworldly experience - this is IT!
Ice-floating, combined with a great chance of seeing the Northern Lights, a reindeer safari, a true Finnish sauna experience, snowshoeing, and maybe a night at a snow hotel, I guarantee you will have an experience you'll never forget.
(And those who know me well, know that I am always cold, BUT I have never slept as well as I did when I stayed in a snow hotel. I was cozy and warm, I promise!)
If you are intrigued by a Finnish adventure, please let's talk! I promise you that you will not be disappointed.
