A Guided Visit to Särestöniemi Art Museum
The first Levi-region location is the Särestöniemi Art Museum. The museum located in Kaukonen, Kittilä displays the art and working environment of Reidar Särestöniemi, who was the most remarkable Lappish artist of his time. His most well-known works are his large, colourful oil paintings from the 1960’s and 1970’s. The museum by the river Ounas is a unique combination of art, architecture, nature, and history.
Arctic Cocooning in the HaliPuu forest
Next the journey moves to the peaceful world of HaliPuu ('hugging tree' in Finnish). At HaliPuu, you'll forget all of your worries and experience the forest from a new perspective – snuggled in a cozy hammock, breathing the purest air in the world, and listening to the sounds of the forest.
After the first journey day, we recommend staying the night in the Levi region. The next day, the journey continues to Muonio, one-hour west of Levi. In idyllic Muonio, the day starts with a stop by a lake to learn about the history and traditions of the region.
A day by Lake Jeris
Enjoy the unique lake scenery in Keimiöniemi surrounded by the Lappish fells. During this experience, you'll learn about the 500-year history of hunting and fishing in the area from your host, the master storyteller Jari. You will also get the chance to experience a moment as a traditional seine fisher.
Arctic Sauna World
A visit to Muonio is not complete without a visit to Arctic Sauna World, which is located on the shore of Lake Jerisjärvi, next to the Pallas-Ylläs National Park. Arctic Sauna World is a unique place with four elements, earth, water, air and fire combined to form the fifth element, the steaming sauna spirit. In Arctic Sauna World, you'll find four different saunas to try.
After a busy day and night spent in Muonio, the journey continues to Hetta to meet some adorable huskies.
Hetta Huskies Summer Mushing Taster Ride with the Sled Dogs
A husky ride is on many visitors' bucket list when it comes to a Lapland holiday. Husky tours are also available in the summer time.

After that, off to nature you go!
Hetta Huskies also provides accommodation, so after a tour with these lovely animals, you can also spend the night at the farm. The last day – and stop – on this journey is at Kilpisjärvi.
Kilpisjärvi Nature Trip with Campfire Picnic in Summer and Fall
During the last stop on this journey, you'll go for a leisurely, guided hike and enjoy a campfire picnic. You will explore nature with a local guide and hear the stories of the village and of everyday life in Kilpisjärvi, Arctic Lapland.
