Guided activites and own time

Embraced by the snowy forests, on an island in the river Muonio, looking out over two countries, lays Rajamaa. We have fully equipped chalets and a little restaurant. Here, some 200 km above the Arctic Circle, Lapland is at its best and cleanest, with deep forests, mighty rivers and the mountains rising at the horizon. Here You can enjoy the clean untouched Lapland, its nature, people and their rare culture.
During some days You will, far away from the everyday worries, experience the genuine fascinating Lapland where man still lives in harmony with nature. A program certified as sustainable tourism.
At the airport in Kittilä, our bus is ready to take us through the wintry forests of Lapland. We head westward towards the Muonio River and after 1 hour we reach Rajamaa. We install ourselves in the nice fully equipped chalets, and then gather in the main building. We get to know each other and check the program of the week. Dinner at the restaurant
After a steady breakfast and after we have made some sandwiches for the lunch we gather outside. Led by the guide we make a walk through the wintry landscape to learn more about the rare nature of Lapland. A tour everyone can participate in. Tracks of birds and animals in the snow, trees and bushes adapted to the harsh climate along with other nature phenomena of the Taiga, will be described. We eat our lunch by a flaming log fire in the forest, before walking back to Rajamaa. Dinner at the restaurant.
Creating snow sculptures
After breakfast we gather outside to get instructions in making “snow sculptures”. First, we prepare everything by making cubes of snow, cubes that will be transferred into sculptures. Soon everyone is busy creating in this natural material. The afternoon can be used to more sculpturing. Dinner at the restaurant.

Accommodation & Meals
On an island in the mighty River Muonio, overlooking two countries, You will find Rajamaa. Rajamaa consists of a main building, with reception, dining-room and sauna. Close by are our hotel-chalets, and around us the vast Taiga forests of Lapland. Except for the small village with 7 inhabitants, there is only wilderness. Here You will enjoy the calm of the Lapland nature, sleep like a log, and eat home cooked food.
Typical Swedish wooden chalets, as always, red with white corners. Lots of wood inside these comfortable, fully equipped hotel-chalets. All of them have been totally renovated during 2018. The smaller ones have 2 beds for twin or double. The bigger ones have two bed-rooms with 2 beds for twin or double and one big living room with two beds. Totally 6 with the extra beds. All chalets have ready-made hotel beds, shower/WC, mini-kitchen and electrical drying closet. And a view over the river and two countries!
The dining room
All meals, if not eaten outside in the forest by a fire, will be enjoyed in our dining-room. The splendid view over the river will increase the appetite. All the food has been prepared in our kitchen from start, and the bread is also baked there. As much as possible we use Lapland produced, such as moose, pork and beef, and fish from mountain-lakes or the Arctic Sea. Blue-berries, cloud-berries and lingon-berries are picked in the forests around. Depending on season, vegetables are partly grown in our garden and partly from the region. Bon appetit!

Little slice of heaven
Stayed at Rajamaa for a week of winter activities including snow shoeing, dog sledging, snowmobiling, reindeer sledging and forest skiing as well as learning about Europe’s only indigenous culture, the Sami’s. Lars was a warm and welcoming host with a dry and very amusing sense of humour. The other guide, Sammy, was chatty and nice too. Kaisu made delicious evening meals and Anna was a great help in the restaurant. They have a real focus on recycling and their carbon footprint which is encouraging. The accommodation is simple but very comfortable and clean. It was a fantastic week and would recommend spending some time here in very peaceful and beautiful surroundings.
Hello, this is Uster calling :-)
Hallihallo, wir sind wieder daaa. Seit 14 Jahren kommen wir jeden Winter nach Rajamaa, geniessen das feine Essen, die familienfreundliche Atmosphäre, die Ruhe und die wunderschönen Landschaften. Ein Urlaub bei Lars und Kajsu lohnt sich auf jeden Fall. Mit etwas Glück kannst Du die tanzenden Nordlichter am Nachthimmel bestaunen. Wenn das Universum mit bunten Farben traumhaft schöne Kunstwerke in den Nachthimmel zaubert, dann lassen Dich diese Eindrücke ein Leben lang nicht mehr los; sie sind fest in Deinem Herzen gespeichert. Aber auch tagsüber ist es wunderschön hier. Das Wetter war vom Samstag bis am Mittwoch sonnig. Winterwunderland! Würste grillieren am Pitkänsaarenpää bei strahlendem Sonnenschein. Und schon vor dem Abendessen wunderschöne Nordlichter!
