Join us explore our little corner of the world in breathtaking variety of seasons.
In wintertime we amaze you with the Polar nights’ wonder. Low temperature and silent atmosphere under sparkling stars and dancing Northern Light. In our area of the northern hemisphere the winters can also be shown with the totally opposite fascination; windy snowstorm!
As winter fades away and the midnight sun slowly rises, the temperatures grow warmer. The snow melts away and uncovers the landscape; the view of the scenery now puts a totally different face on our gem.
From spring to summer, we proudly present to you the land where the sun never sets. A region of lush, green forest and fields of blooming flowers. Singing rivers, breeding birds and mammals really worth seeing!
Let us introduce you to the wonders of our region and make sure you'll have a quality experience to remember. It’ll be an honor to bring you on an adventure in our home element; either at sea, along the road or out in the field.
