Lapland

lapland-2.jpg

(Luxury Action is #1 for private travel in Lapland & Finland)

Lapland is a region in the northern parts of Finland, Sweden, Norway and Russia.

Lapland, in Finland, covers one- third of the total area of Finland. This expansive area has a human population of approximately 200,000, and it is estimated that there are more reindeer than people throughout the region! Lapland is a peaceful place.

The expansive natural surroundings allows for tranquility; the fresh air transforms and allows for peace which helps to naturally release the day’s stress. The world is near, yet suitably far away.

Lapland is the land of eight seasons: Christmas (deep winter), Frosty Winter (late winter), Crusty Snow (spring), Departure of Ice (early summer), Midnight Sun (summer), Harvest Season (late summer), Colorful Autumn (autumn), First Snow (early winter).

Needless to say the Northern community lives with a firm connection to nature as the changing seasons dictate remarkable changes into daily routines.

The “Very Best” Arctic region. The capital of Lapland, located in the southern part of Lapland, is Rovaniemi, and is conveniently located in the Arctic Circle.

north-pole.jpg

A once-in-a-lifetime adventure

Experience a real “once-in-a-lifetime” adventure to the geographic North Pole and an unbelievably beautiful and ever changing ice escape when you explore a landscape like no other on Earth.

Only four short hours after leaving Longyearbyen, you can be standing at the North Pole celebrating at the top of the world yet still be able to enjoy a night on the beautiful frozen polar ocean. Here at the top of the world, experience a magical and untouched landscape that only a very privileged few have ever had a chance to visit.

Many travel packages and adventure options are available to enhance your North Pole experience. One need only ask to arrange the perfect experience.

Northern Lights

northern-lights.jpg

Northern Lights ( the Aurora Borealis) Specialist

The thrill of witnessing the Aurora Borealis is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The blazing colors in the sky are enchanting and addicting.

The Northern Lights appear about 200 nights per year in Lapland. The further north you go, the greater the chances of spotting them. Seeing the Northern Lights requires darkness and clear skies. Generally, the spectacular light shows are best viewed a few hours after midnight in late autumn, winter and early spring when the sky is darkest and the skies and clear. The display might last 20 seconds or go on for hours. Our favorite months for the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are September- October and February- March.
Even with today’s technical equipment, the Lights’ appearance can never be forecast with certainty. They are a phenomenon that cannot be packaged and sold, which makes each time special. They appear for you; right then, right there. The Sun and the Earth conduct the show, and each performance is unique. The Fox moves in mysterious ways.

In the wintertime in Lapland Finland, you can traverse the snowy countryside on skis, by snowmobile, or with in a sleigh pulled by horses, reindeer or huskies. The dark winter evenings are the best times to marvel at the spectacle of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Ice fishing on a frozen waterway in the bright sunshine of early spring is a popular pastime.

The Hollywood Experience

Step into the narrative
Luxury Action & Studio Jones offer different styles that best express your vision. Whether it’s action adventure (Western, Bourne Identity), car chase (Bullitt, Fast & Furious), fantasy (The Hobbit, Narnia, Alice in Wonderland) or reality (Deadliest Catch, Mountain Men).

Your options are only limited by your imagination as you are the architect for your Luxury Action adventure. Consider yourself the head writer of Hollywood’s next big blockbuster: featuring you as it’s star.

First the client submits a literary or visual narrative which will act as a script. Once the experience has been captured, the narrative will be assembled and edited to the level of the client’s expectation or vision. The fully edited final narrative experience will then be delivered to the client so that they can share and relive their dreams for years to come.

Why go to the movies when you can relive your own!
