Tromso villa description

These are more than vacation houses: Winter dream consists of 3 villas that have been built in block house style between 2000 and 2003. Aesthetics and comfort have been combined with discrete luxury, a broad service system, attractive excursions, wonderful nature and lots of silence. The “winter dream” concept has been often presented in the media recently and it is described as the ultimate accommodation in Scandinavia. The extraordinary is the combination between the freedom offered by a vacation house and the hotel-like service (if required). The American “Hideaway” philosophy has been interpreted in an European way. An ideal spot to experience the special and find quietness.


Arrival: You can go via Helsinki by Finnair to Kittilä (alternative airport Rovaniemi, approx. 200 km away), and by renting car or shuttle, approx. 50 km from the airport to the Winter dream houses. In summer you go by ferry from Travemünde or Rostock to Helsinki. Further on, you can take the motorail train to Kolari or Rovaniemi. By the overland route, you can go via Denmark - Sweden (from Hamburg approx. 2.500 km).

                              Western Lapland is a magic low mountain range landscape - many of our guests are reminded of Canada. The Natural Park Pallastunturi, which is an ideal region for hiking and cross country skiing, is approx. 25 km from the blockhouse villa. Both in summer and in winter there are many possibilities for leisure activities: Trips with the dog and reindeer sleds and the snowmobile. 4 alpine skiing regions are 20 - 30 minute drive away. The nearest airport is in Kittilä, about 50 km away.

                              Other Activities: Dog sleds, snow mobile, reindeer sleds

                              Ski: This is a cross country skiing paradise (approx. 120 km of well kept cross country ski runs), with snow until the beginning of May. The illuminated cross country ski runs in Olos (approx. 15 minutes by car) and Jeris (approx. 10 minutes by car) are especially beautiful. Directly in front of the “winter dream” houses, there is a private cross country ski run of approx. 12 km (suitable weather provided - use not possible if it is too windy).

                              Cross country skiing equipment is available. Levi- Finland’s largest ski region is only a 30 minute drive away (over 20 slopes, from blue to black, i.e. all levels of proficiency). Levi corresponds to the standards of many ski resorts in the Alps. More comfortable, but still with numerous ski slopes is Ylläas (30 minutes away). The most quiet ski resorts are Olos (approx. 15 minutes away) with 3 ski lifts and Pallas (in the middle of the national park), with 2 lifts (approx. 20 minutes away). Alpine equipments can be rented in any ski region.
