Lapland

Incentives in Lapland

Wild Nordic's, with its integrated set of Lappish values like pure nature, unique activities and dedicated staff, expertise lies in creating itineraries with a twist on activities which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Our aim is to give your clients something priceless - the reward of motivating their company’s employees to desire to keep striving for the next reward.

For those new in incentive travel as well as incentive power houses with a long portfolio, Lapland has become an evergreen wild card destination they can offer alongside traditional incentive destinations. Lappish natural elements offer unpaired wintry landscapes, providing opportunities like enjoying a welcome dinner in the ice restaurant or going towards the non-conventional like ice climbing

Let us wrap you into our storytelling

Imagine the silence at the edge of a frozen lake, as your team learns Arctic survival skills. To get the adrenaline going, snowmobiling with our experienced guides is a must, either as a taster or for a multi-day expedition, for those who have been travelling for years and want something different than the usual tourist trip.  Why not be pioneers and visit the Arctic Ocean on snowmobiles with the best snowmobiling gear in Europe? For all those who are hiding an inner child inside, ice karting and a visit to Santa might be the wish they forgot they had. A kiss from a husky or reindeer will complete the experience and our incentive travel specialists cannot wait to put a spin on the traditional Arctic Animal safaris widely offered.

To a Finn, balance is important, so frosty outdoors is balanced with a warm and soothing traditional sauna and a glass of Lappish craft beer whilst in the hot tube, surrounded by sparkly snow. The bravest will gather the courage to try ice swimming, dipping their body safely into the ice opening, perhaps wearing a hat with the client's logo for long-lasting memories. Each activity you want can be customized and wrapped into storytelling relevant to your client.

Unique Wilderness venue for Incentives

Unique Wilderness Venue

Our Arctic Circle Wilderness Resort offers versatile possibilities for your clients to enjoy several venues for a variety of uses, close to nature and on the doorstep of the accommodation. Its best feature is the proximity to the city center of Rovaniemi (only 23 kilometers) and its unique location in the forest (safe, no transfer needed between activities, meals, venues and accommodation). One of the highlights of the Wilderness Resort is the private island, connected to the mainland with a picturesque bridge.

Wilderness resort features two distinct venues - our traditional Lappish teepee venue "Kota" is located on the island, with the capacity of 30 persons. Kota is heated and features a central fireplace, perfect for exclusive dinners. Whether you have a handful of people or a bigger group, the Wilderness Resort has a second venue, its main restaurant that features seats for 80 persons but can be divided into two separate cabinets: a smaller one for 20 persons and a bigger one for 60 persons. Both cabinets have meeting amenities and are adaptable based on the need for the space. Modern, hotel-like rooms can accommodate up to 50 people (double/twin beds) or 25 people (single occupancy). There is no need for transportations as we have a variety of connectable experiences making your stay unforgettable, such as taking a ride with a snowmobile or a sleigh ride with huskies.

No trip is complete without special stays

 We can offer you a wilderness location with all the comfort of a hotel, but as well a completely private location in the forest and a private island for client's use or in a coveted glass igloo under the Northern Lights. Peaceful nights paired with authentic food provided will provide a great start to fully enjoy the Lappish lifestyle each day during the client's stay with us.

Pick a location that suits your needs

Wild Nordic Finland operates in two locations in Lapland, Rovaniemi and Levi - while they are both offering the Lappish atmosphere, they also allow our incentive trade specialist to help you pick a location suited to your needs. Rovaniemi will allow your clients to combine wilderness with the closeness of city life, allowing bigger groups and several one-of-a-kind locations. On the other hand, Levi, an active ski resort, boosts smaller capacity and is aimed towards more active groups with a flair for nightlife. Both locations feature a dedicated incentive coordinator on location as well as a variety of forever improving unique services and activities.
