AAVA: The quietest adventure in Lapland

Do you know what silence sounds like? Have you heard the sound of snow? Or have you heard when the sky and northern lights tell you a story? Join Aava and you will find out!

Welcome to the quietest safari in the world – Aava. We will take you to the pure Arctic nature to experience a relaxing experience during which the hustle and bustle of the world will not disturb you.

During the adventure, in addition to the silence, you will hear stories about Finnishness and you will learn what is this Finnish thing called “tikkupulla”. We will get to share and compare unique experiences together. The purpose of Aava is to relax in Arctic nature, escape from the daily busy life and to recharge our batteries.

After the Aava adventure, you will wonder how silence can be so empowering and miraculous.
