A friend and I spent 3 nights at Lapland Lake. The skiing and snowshoeing were excellent. Our tupa was comfortable. Lunch at Tuulan Grille was tasty. We used the Finnish sauna, which is a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. We have been there several years and plan on returning next year, too!

Our family of 4 has found solace annually at Lapland Lake Nordic Vacation Center for the past 8 years. Owners Ann and Olavi provide all the essentials, including books, board games, and night lights so that we can pack simply and lightly! The authentic Finnish sauna and cross country skiing trails are second to none! Our tupa has always been immaculate and maintained beautifully over the years. This remains our most favorite place to unwind, unplug, and enjoy our natural surroundings. Looking forward to next year!!

Our stay at Lapland Lake was for 3 days and 2 nights and was exactly what we were looking for at this time of year, peace and quiet with a fire burning and it cold outside. The staff and owners were extremely pleasant and accommodating. I can't wait for my next getaway to Lapland Lake!

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
