    Excellent communication with the host. Very close proximity to the city centre. Accommodation suitable for a large group which is very hard to find. Spotlessly clean.

Some points from my career: 1995 Wild and Free company (established by me) nature travels: First Ethical and Ecological principles in internet in the World among travel companies. 6.12.1997 in Russian TV 2 in St. Petersburg: Marketing Lapland to Russians by multimedia.

Lapland's capital Rovaniemi is the only city in the world, where services and seasons, as well as Sámi, Finnish and Lappish culture are available within minutes of your stay. The most awesome thing here is the Nature of Lapland surrounding the area, which -with its animals and natural phenomena- is just a short distance from the narrow center. In addition, there are a summer and winter sports center, a regional theater Rovaniemi Theater - Korundi Cultural Center, the Science Centers of Arktikum & Pilke (forest center) and much, much more - and all of them just next door. Rovaniemi is a well-known northern city where the unique nature and architect Alvar Aalto's handicrafts are always visible, including the city hall, the Lappia House and the famous “Reindeer antler” city plan. Our nearest neighboring private house is also designed by Alvar Aalto. The locally famous architect was called Ferdinand Salokangas. Rovaniemi is a vibrant, evolving city of Santa Claus, an international city where various tourism programs can be implemented from individualists and family holidays to demanding incentive trips and congresses.
