EXOTICPrivacy in Wilderness
Arctic Lakeland wilderness is the exotic combo of fabulous Lapland and scenic Lakeland.
The private Villa Cone Beach hides for you deep in its unbeaten corner.
Safe and Secure
How about the virus?
Why to visit wild taiga wilderness in Arctic Lakeland? That is an easy question to answer. Villa Cone Beach may well be the safest place in Finland for your dream holiday.
Not a single tested Covid 19 case has appeared here in an area of 1/3 of Belgium. Finland in turn belongs to the planet’s safest countries, where you can take full privacy for granted. Our children can go alone. No natural catastrophes happen here.
Corruption is nonexistent. Police won’t follow your moves. Should you need to get to a hospital in an emergency, you will be hurried there. Traffic goes orderly and Finnair has superior safety record. You can trust us at the wheel.
Dull, no way! We are relaxed comfort in privacy. Yet if you seek for thrills, we can do a lot.
Lots of air to breathe
At Villa Cone Beach you wind down in privacy, cut from the rest of the world, if you so wish. Else, you can choose easy or active doing.
Endless Taiga forests protect your isolation. Villa Cone Beach locates alone and the nearest neighbours live one kilometer away. You and each villager have an average of 10 square kilometers to breathe freely. Yet you are not far from safety networks, emergency response, doctors, hospitals, police, even local community. We stay as close as you wish.
Technology shrinks the distances. Your fast communication takes place via 4G or 200/200 Mb optical fiber. Travel times to a number of small towns and their services are just suitable. You are connected at will.
Sounds of silence
Your whisper goes for communication in total silence. Try to hear buzzing of veins in your ear drums. Listen to floating snow flakes hitting on your shoulders.
Silence may be broken in freezing cold, when snow creaks under your boots. In the summertime vegetation makes the silencer, but it cannot stop birds from singing.
Occasionally a lonely dog barks far away or muffled humming carries from a distant road, where a single vehicle runs ahead. Your peace remains.
No to plastic bottles
Inhale the cleanest air on Earth. Winds bring fresh air to Villa Cone Beach from Greenland and the Arctic Sea, from the home of polar bears.
Pure water flows from a municipally operated local natural spring, which is abundant and sustainable. Gravity brings water to Villa Cone Beach even if there is no electricity. More water flows from the spring than we could ever consume. That is why we can use it for many things.
Enjoy delicious water straight from the tap, as we add nothing and remove less. You have no reason to bring plastic water bottles with you. Only spring water is available for showers and cooking. Farm animals in the village drink spring water and we’ll even wash your car with the same crystal stuff.
You feel clean from head to toe after a good sauna. No wonder: not only did you bathe in it, you also threw spring water on the hot stones and inhaled its vapour. As we say in Finland, water is the oldest ointment.
It is Snowman time
Snow shines in blue, red, or grey shades, depending on the play of the sun and the clouds. There are no fixed snowy or sunny seasons and we are happy to go day by day.
The amount of snowfall or rain is just right, causing no chaos, flooding, or droughts. Snow is a blessing, because it protects plants and saves energy. You cannot steer a snowmobile on ice or hurry a husky pack without snow.
The light of the full moon reflects from white snow, making mid-winter nights almost as bright as cloudy days. You will not forget gazing at the Milky Way in a dark blue winter night.
Sunglasses and other sun protection are recommended in the brightest May-April sunshine whenever your exposure lasts longer. The snow reflects the sun a surprising amount!
Down to minus 40
If you’re lucky you can experience a wintertime temperature down to -40 °C. That’s 20 degrees colder than in your freezer! Such an extreme we don’t reach every year.
A typical minimum is -32-34 °C, even then only for a few days. Normal winter temperatures set in the range of -5 to -20 °C. The Villa Cone Beach milieu and proper clothing make you feel warm. Very likely you feel cosier than in many southern resorts. Good going never stops.
Is it getting intolerably hot and dusty during your local summers? Stop sweating and escape the scorching heat at Villa Cone Beach. The summers are mild and the weather changes all the time.
Who needs electric blankets and bed warmers? Nobody ever at Villa Cone Beach. Just adjust the room temperature to suit you exactly. See your sweet dreams under a lightweight down blanket. There is no bad weather at Villa Cone Beach.
Allowed to live as you are
You will not stumble upon ‘No Trespassing’ signs. Free-of-charge recreational use of all land and waterways belongs to everyone, including you.
Go wherever you like and pick wild berries, mushrooms, and herbs freely. Just observe commonsense courtesy and people’s privacy. The law only limits going into certain protected and military areas.
Freedom to roam the land reflects the state of other freedoms in the country. The freedom of press and expression of opinion are at their best in Finland. Education is unbiased and mostly free.
Come and enjoy your own private freedom at Villa Cone Beach.
Away from mass tourism
All tourism stays far away and local people are busy in their own work, so the wilderness is almost yours alone. Wind down in privacy, when not enjoying your activities.
Villa Cone Beach is surrounded by endless forests and hundreds of lakes and streams. Nature areas protect wild forest reindeer, the big cousin of Santa’s Rudolph. Wild brown bears and wolves thrive in the forests and come to visit bear-watching places at the Russian border.
Lake Kuivajärvi lies a stone’s throw away from Villa Cone Beach. It is a hidden gem inviting you for a picnic or campfire. All its beauty is packed in a small area to easily navigate and reach.
Anywhere you go in Arctic Lakeland, you are bound to see natural beauty at its finest. At Villa Cone Beach, it is right at your doorstep.
The happiest people
Villa Cone Beach serves you in a friendly, casual way, and with courtesy. We also guard your holiday’s privacy when you prefer to keep to yourself.
When Finns talk they talk straight and honestly. We tend to get to the point straightaway. Many of us are used to polite small talk, while others want to remain more on their own. World-famous Finnish happiness is an interesting quality and sometimes even a bit of a mystery to us, so we haven’t let it go to our heads. Come and experience it for yourself at Villa Cone Beach.
We are all for equality and fairness. Tipping is not customary but is becoming increasingly acceptable due to learning foreign habits. Feel free to tip for good service, but no one gets mad if you miss it.
DAY OR NIGHT?
Kaamos and light
The sun doesn’t show up in December to February in the north of Finland. It’s the time of Kaamos, a continuous night with short, dim days.
In midwinter the sun barely rises above the horizon at Villa Cone Beach. Days are short, just a few minutes, but they are days. Colours are magic yellows and reds. If you are lucky you can marvel at the fabulous light show of the Northern Lights under the Milky Way stars.
What a difference under the glaring sun of April. The long midsummer days of June-July make people forget the tale-telling time of Kaamos. You can even read your favourite book outdoors at midnight. Midsummer magic is all around.
Winter and summer may be polar opposites, but there is beauty in every season. Whenever you decide to travel, you will experience the many delights of the Arctic Lakeland wilds.
When ice sings
Can you imagine lake ice singing loudly? Indeed, so it does. The show takes place when the temperature goes down in the nighttime, cooling the ice sheet on lakes.
The ice on the Villa Cone Beach lake shrinks forcefully and cracks suddenly. The sounds of howling and banging travel over the icefield. More lakes even kilometres away join the chorus. That is not enough to satisfy Father Frost, who hammers buildings and trees making loud noise.
Let’s get out on the ice in the middle of this concert to wonder about the sounds of nature.
Your local kitchen
Nothing beats the flavours and vitamins of fresh wild blueberries. Add cloudberries, crowberries, and many more. It is hard to say which one is the most delicious.
Get into the forest to forage for wild mushrooms in the season. The variety of local species is extensive. There are so many to choose from, including chanterelles and Penny Buns, just to name a couple.
Delicious Villa Cone Beach fish are known to lower bad cholesterol. You can have it fried, blazed, grilled, smoked, or any other way, according to your tastes.
Local food materials are used for your meals, which are served indoors or under the sunny sky. We may have a chance to dine at a local family home and experience the folks’ authentic life. We can also go and have a meal anytime in one of the many restaurants in the surrounding small towns.
In the forests of Villa Cone Beach good food is quite literally at your fingertips! In any case, you won’t have to travel far for a delicious culinary experience.
