Guardians of Lapland

Welcome to the world of the Guardians of Lapland! On arrival to our Secret Forest, you will be blindfolded and taken on a journey that will awaken your senses. Acquaint yourself with the forest through a mindfulness experience and then let yourself be led to a traditional wooden hut where the Guardian of Lapland will guide you through a blind tasting of local delicacies. Without the use of sight, your senses of taste, smell and touch, will delight with intrigue in tasting a mystery selection of Lappish delights.

After discovering the mysteries of the Lappish forest, you will be pronounced a member of the Guardian Brotherhood and granted an amulet which will reveal to you your very own Guardian name. Then feast on a delicious dinner in the Kota amidst the forest, and joyfully celebrate becoming one of the Guardians of Lapland. The warm and authentic atmosphere,
along with the tasty local food made from real arctic ingredients, will guarantee a satisfying experience.
