The wilderness experience of a lifetime

Lap Adventures Oy arranges a wilderness experience of your lifetime in the beautiful landscape of Lapland and Norway, where you can see the four seasons: the snowy winter with aurora, warm spring, the nightless night of the summer, and the colourful autumn. We have lived here all our lives, so we have extensive experience of the nature of Lapland, and know how to get around in the wilderness. Our goal is to provide high quality service for our guests. Enjoy and admire the beautiful nature of Lapland and Norway with us!

We organise tailor-made trips for hunting, summer fishing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, hiking and other adventures.

We also have tours for viewing and photographing the aurora, provide transport and accommodation services, and rent out equipment such as tents, boats and snowmobiles.

We operate mainly in the wilderness of the northern Lapland, but also in Ivalo, Inari and Saariselkä.

Hunting

Our hunting trips take place in the Lapland wilderness or across the border in Norway. We use dogs to help us with hunting. Our German pointers locate ptarmigans and other grouse for you, and provide an amazing hunting experience for all our guests. Hunting with bird dogs is one of the finest forms of hunting. A well-trained dog will force the bird to stay grounded after locating it, and flushes the bird on command for the hunter to shoot it.

Our professional guides take care of the safety, and guarantee a high-quality service.

In March, you can join in on the ptarmigan spring hunt, which is done in the beautiful mountain scenery by skiing on forest skis. In the autumn, you will have the opportunity to participate in the moose or bear hunt.
