Arctic Sleepover – Overnight at HaliPuu’s Hammock HangOut
Leave your worries and stress behind and spend a night swaying gently in a cosy nest between the trees, under the ever changing Northern sky.
Experiencing night time in the nature in Arctic Lapland is something to put on your bucket list. It is one of the rare places where in the summertime you can watch the sun make a full 360° circle around the sky and in the winter witness the northern lights dance across the sky above. The contrasts are unique: the Arctic night is full of life and wonderfully still at the same time.
This overnight cocooning experience starts in Veitservasa, a place full of stories and history. We walk through local Raekallio family’s old woodlands, learning about the trees, marveling at the peaceful nature and breathing in world’s cleanest air.
After a 600 m forest walk we arrive at the HaliPuu’s hangout, where the hammock cocoons are already waiting. Together we equip the hammocks for your overnight adventure, making sure that you can stay comfortable the whole night through.
We sit by the campfire, share tales from the Lappish nature and roast some evening-snacks: HaliPuu’s special ”Lappdogs”, reindeer sausages wrapped in home-made bread dough. There will also be warm blackcurrant juice and home made berry marshmallows available the whole night through.
When the fresh air makes you tired and you feel ready to retreat to your cocoon, our host will gently tuck you in for a restful sleep.
In the morning we are woken up with Campfire Barista’s world famous specialty coffees (as seen on Gordon Ramsay’s TV-show) and you can also taste our unique, prize winning foresty Chai Lattes – our own recipe including local juniper berries and birch leaves .
After dismantling our camp it is time to congratulate yourself: you have experienced a night in the Arctic nature!
