We had a great time! We stayed one night in the Latu tupa in October, which was very comfortable for our family of five. My wife and I, along with our children, ages 11, 7 and 5, enjoyed kayaking and canoeing on the lake, a short, easy hike along the snowshoe trail, checking out the domesticated reindeer, and seeing the autumn colors. We grilled outside for dinner and made s'mores at our tupa's firepit. This was our first time at Lapland and we were very pleased with our experience. Mike at the front desk was patient and helpful. We met the owners who are very friendly. We all wanted to stay longer and we are all enthusiastic about coming back in the winter to try cross-country skiing, tubing, and ice skating. My wife is looking into bringing her Brownie (Girl Scout) troop to Lapland in the winter either for a day trip or for an overnight visit. Our children are lobbying for Lapland to be the site of our next family reunion.

I recently enjoyed staying at Lapland Lake to view the fall foliage which was wonderful, especially since the sun broke out just as we approached the Lake. Before that I had enjoyed walking on Joki Latu with the real pleasure of the soft forest ground, babbling brook and the scent of fresh pine all around me. Our cabin was so homey in its appointments, cleanliness and comfort. I was thankful that Ann was able to accommodate us on one day's notice/request. We have vacationed here in summer and winter and truly love visiting the Hirvonens. Kiittoksia kaikkille, Elaine

I have skied at Lapland previously so already knew they do an amazing job grooming the trails. This winter a friend and I stayed two nights in one of the tupas (cottages), also. Everything was perfect. The tupa was clean, comfortable and cozy, with wood for the stove delivered daily. And, despite warm weather and rain a week or so before, the trails were in fantastic condition. And everyone is so friendly there. I have never been disappointed.

On a sunny day in early March, Lapland Lake was perfect. Trails are well maintained and groomed and include a variety of terrain. Clientele included serious racers and tourers like us. In over 50 years of XC skiing we have seen a lot of ski touring areas and none were more enjoyable than this. Our party of two stayed in one of the housekeeping cottages midweek. While slightly pricey at first impression, when free daily passes are included (two each for a one night stay) it was a good deal. Lunch in the grill was good and very reasonable in price. We plan on returning next season.

Great Valentines Getaway!

The welcome was warm, the tupa was cozy and comfortable and so convenient. We just walked out the door, put on our skiis and head out onto the trails! The fresh snow and freshly groomed trails provided a winter wonderland of fun and good exercise. We really enjoyed our catered meal in the tupa on Thursday and Valentine's dinner at the restaurant while enjoying the snowy views. We managed 9 + miles of skiing on Thursday including the double black diamonds. On Valentines Day we were able to ski every trail - 22 miles worth due to the perfect conditions! (We did, however, rest on the swings on three of the trails.) Skiing at night on the lighted trails was a special treat also. What a perfect way to spend our 2 day Valentines Getaway!

We have been going to Lapland Lake for 22 years. The consistency of our experience is unsurpassed. Ann and Olavi Hirvonen are fabulous hosts. The cross-country skiing is top notch with meticulous grooming and a varied lay-out of trails. Cottages are clean and cozy. I could not recommend Lapland Lake more hightly.

Even without snow we were able to have great hikes on the trails. Our Tupa was very comfortable and the staff went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable.

We went to Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center for a few days around Labor Day. We rented the pohjan tupa. It was wonderful! The girls (ages 11 and 4) loved the fact that the private beach was a quick 8 min. walk from our cabin and not only could they swim, but the also went out on complimentary kayaks and canoes that were there. (They tried the paddle boat but because of the height difference between the two kids they just kind of moved in a circle.) The cabin itself was immaculate-two bedrooms, a full bath, and full kitchen. Bringing our own food saved us a bunch of money. The nature trails are fine for all ages, even found a few salamanders and frogs on the trails. There were also board games in the cabin as well as badminton. A fire pit in the side yard was great for smores and glow in the dark stuff. It was extremely affordable and both girls were sad that we couldn't stay longer. Next year we will-definitely looking forward to making this a yearly thing!

My friends and I had a very enjoyable stay. Our cabin was comfy and clean. Staff and owners were kind and accommodating. The owner was good enough to come and tell us about bad weather that was on it's way, and gave us some lanterns. The trails and lake are beautiful.

I have cross country skied at many venues in North America and I would rate Lapland Lake in the top three in terms of consistency of the grooming, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, and quality of the amenities. Lapland Lake Rocks.
