Extra Tours

At Pippin in Lapland we also offer a number of additional tours. Which one suits you?

Spend the night in an igloo (Quinzee)

Super fun to do in Lapland

Sleeping in an igloo is a surprisingly comfortable experience. The snow insulates against the cold outside and keeps out wind and noise. You can sleep wonderfully on an air mattress and with warm sleeping bags. The igloo is close to our house and if it unexpectedly gets too cold, you can return to the house to continue sleeping.

During your five-day stay you can spend a night in an igloo instead of in your bed. How cool is that! Inside it is around -1 to -4, while outside it can be as low as 20. The Quinzee has a lamp, a bed, an insulating air mattress and a warm sleeping bag. There is room for two people. If it gets too cold at night, go to the nearby house.

Lapland vanuit de lucht

Moose safari

Looking for the moose in Lapland

Moose do not easily show themselves and usually keep far away from the human world. To spot the fantastic animals, you will go out today with Jan who knows exactly where the elk live. Did you know that a male moose can grow to be 3 meters long and 2 meters high?

We do this tour after snowshoeing and it takes approximately 3 hours. You leave civilization and go by bus along the glacier valley towards the wilderness and the Caledonian mountain range. During the journey we will keep an eye out for forests and open swamps where the elk live, sometimes stopping to study the beautiful majestic animals and perhaps we will be lucky enough to photograph one. We smell the wilderness and winter.

From mid-January it is light longer and the chance of seeing them is therefore slightly greater
