Northern Lights and Reindeer Fairy Tale Tour
The northern lights bewitch you. They have since you first laid eyes on them in a book, a magazine, online.
You feel as if another world beckons you, and those lights are a curtained veil between the worlds. Somewhere someone has left a cosmic window open and the wind-light is blowing through.
Hans Christen Anderson’s fairy tales. Narnia. East of the Sun and West of the Moon. The Snow Queen. The Golden Compass. These stories have stayed with you, and they enchant you still. You just know there are talking polar bears and frolicking selkies that remember your true name.
Lapland. It’s a living fairy tale, and the inspiration for many a myth. The northern lights dance in the sky. Icicle faeries twirl among the limbs of ancient trees. Husky dogs race through glistening snowdrifts. And everywhere: the magical forest.
This magical landscape is one of the most breathtaking places on earth, especially in winter. Our exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows you to experience the amazing lifestyle of the Sámi people and to get up close and personal with Lapland’s most iconic creature – the reindeer.
The Sami are known as the reindeer people, and with good reason. For hundreds of years these souls have lived side by side with the enchanting beasts, migrating with them over mountains and across valleys, in all seasons regardless of extreme weather and harsh conditions, while the reindeer graze, mate and raise their young. This thoughtful culture teach their young to respect the land, its forests and rivers and all its animals, to protect the balance of nature. Theirs is an ancient culture whose wisdom and kindness is sorely needed today.
Anyone can hop on a plane and go chase the northern lights, but not everyone gets a chance to learn from an indigenous tribal leader, nuzzle a reindeer, gather inside a traditional Sámi lavvus teepee for fireside coffee and stories.
But on this tour, you will.
Gone are the big buses and demanding schedules. Gone are the long lines of tourists, crowding you at every turn. This tour is tiny, private, handmade and exquisitely made for fairy tale lovers.
We’ll live among the Sami people, on their reindeer reserve. We’ll visit their village and learn the ways of their tribe. We’ll sleep beneath their ancient trees and listen to their stories. We’ll wake in the morning to fresh coffee, a delicious breakfast and then head out to feed the reindeer, including all the little ones, just learning the ways of the world.
When we’re ready for adventure we’ll race our own pack of sled dogs through snowcapped trees. We’ll harness our own reindeer for an afternoon’s sleigh ride. We’ll tour a hotel made entirely of ice and enjoy an aperitif while seated on reindeer skins before walking across the frozen river at twilight.
Do you hear that? No? That’s because it’s silent. This land is sweet-hushed as the moon, tucked under its snow-velvet blanket.
