A WEEK OF ADVENTURE + RENEWAL IN LAPLAND

On Hiatus

Finnish, Lapland is home to the Arctic wilderness - the perfect place to hunt Aurora Borealis, adventure, connect, and unplug. Expect husky and reindeer rides, saunas, snow shoeing, delicious food and drinks, and fingers crossed, the opportunity to see the awe-inspiring Northern Lights. 

 

Our home base will be a cozy cabin with a touch of luxury, where in between the adventure, we will spend time on our mats  - breathing, moving, restoring, and refueling. The final night will be spent in glass igloos where we will have the chance to sleep under the colorful sky.

This once in a lifetime retreat is for those looking to experience something magical. Space is limited to 11 guests.
