Arctic Land Sauna Experience in Kilpisjärvi, Lapland
Lapland is an adventure from start to finish! After an eventful day in the Arctic Land nature, a one-of-a-kind sauna experience is in store for you: The Arctic Land Sauna at Vasara Reindeer Ranch.
When you book an Arctic Land Holiday your days will be filled with exciting outdoor activities in pure nature and authentic encounters with traditional Sámi culture. Add to this the ultimate relaxation provided during a quintessential Finnish ritual, the sauna bath, for an absolute sense of well-being.
The Arctic Land Sauna sits on the shore of Lake Peera, in an exquisite setting at Vasara Reindeer Ranch and offers enjoyment and relaxation all year round. From November to April there are reindeer roaming freely on the grounds, and being inquisitive by nature they may wander up to keep you company while you’re soaking in the hot tub or lounging on the deck in between your bathing sessions. A sauna experience at the Ranch can be equally spellbinding in summer while you marvel at the nightless nights. The darkening evenings from late summer onwards may pamper you with the greatest light show on earth – the Aurora Borealis.
The gentle heat of the sauna and the warmth of the outdoor hot tub soothe your muscle tension and rejuvenate your soul. Relax on the deckchair, enjoy the tranquility and gaze at the arctic sky. The adjacent barbecue hut, the Sávdnigoahti, is at your disposal throughout your sauna session, with comfortable seating around a cozy open wood-burning fire and your choice of refreshments and tasty snacks to savour.
The Arctic Land Sauna Experience is available to guests staying in the Reindeer Ranch Glass Igloos, in Arctic Land Lodging Chalets as well as to visitors to Vasara Reindeer Ranch. We can arrange for your transfer from the village of Kilpisjärvi or you can arrive by car (we’ll provide driving instructions when we confirm your booking).

In winter you can take a dip in the chilly water of Lake Peera through a hole in the ice. In summer and in the fall before the lake freezes its cool waters invite you for a swim.
