Visitors and explorers, meet your ideal holiday in Finnish Lapland: from eco-friendly rural retreats to picture-perfect urban stays and night skiing under the Northern Lights. Hilla Villas serves as a match-maker between holidaymakers and Lapland’s best-kept secrets.

Hilla Villas has a clear promise: to connect holidaymakers with premium-quality service providers in Finnish Lapland. “The quality of the villas is what defines us and therefore we choose them carefully based on very strict criteria,” says Jukka Oksaharju, co-owner and one of the founders of Hilla Villas.

With all the information in the world at our fingertips, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, especially when trying to organise a holiday in a foreign country. This is exactly why eight friends, all living in Finland, decided to help visitors. “We realised that there was a gap between Finnish Lapland’s amazing services, exceptional villas and breathtaking local experiences and a wider market of international and domestic travellers, who were hungry for a complete vacation experience package,” Oksaharju explains.

Tailor-made, unforgettable experiences

Oksaharju founded Hilla Villas alongside Jussi Vatanen and a team of other experts in the field of travel and now, Hilla Villas is the first digital service designed specifically to match holidaymakers with a carefully-selected collection of properties and experiences, all locally-produced in Lapland.

For Hilla Villas, premium-quality does not mean compromising on sustainability and it looks for companies that use renewable energy sources and materials from local or environmentally-friendly suppliers. Hilla Villas holds authenticity and transparency in high regard – and believes in offering tailored service to all guests. “We treat our guests exactly how we would want to be treated,” the owner says. “With us, what you see is what you get – high-class accommodation and honest pricing – and a memorable holiday, of course.”

Hilla Villas has partnered with a network of villa owners and local service providers and has access to insider knowledge on the best places to be and what to see in Lapland. “We’ve designed a full service that delivers bespoke holiday experiences to visitors, while supporting the livelihood of local entrepreneurs.”

Luxurious villas and local expertise

Oksaharju does not see Lapland as just a travel destination, however. “It’s a holistic experience that challenges all your senses and opens your heart to surrounding nature and culture, which is as rich and diverse as its people. Lapland offers both first-timers and experienced travellers unforgettable moments,” he says.

One of the gems is Villa Ailo, a new, stylish, six-bedroom villa with all the amenities, located in the heart of the iconic Levi ski resort. Boasting two bathrooms, a sauna and a hot tub, this is the ideal spot to unwind. Another unique location is Live Levi, a premium villa for 12 people in the stunning landscapes of Utsuvaara, near ski slopes and the world-famous Levi Igloos. From the villa’s terrace, guests can admire the rugged landscapes of Levi, the enchanting changing seasons – and the Northern Lights.

Lapland is an increasingly popular holiday destination for holidaymakers from abroad and Finland alike. Here, the ski season runs from around November through to April – and there are plenty of excellent-quality ski slopes, as well as thousands of kilometres of cross-country skiing trails. Alongside reindeer snowmobile safaris, sledding, reindeer rides and ice swimming, there is no shortage of activities in the region. “We are experts in the exploration of Lapland, and no one knows Lapland and its hidden gems better than we do. We are here to help visitors find a perfect villa to meet all their needs,” Oksaharju says.

In addition, the company will connect guests with the best local experience providers. “Whether you are wanting to experience an exclusive candle-lit dinner prepared by a private chef, or an action-packed holiday with a group of friends, we can arrange it all. Our goal is to make our guests’ stay a unique adventure, and we are here along the whole journey to help with any questions that may arise,” he adds.

Hilla Villas is a one-stop-shop where visitors wanting to explore Finnish Lapland can find all they need. “Lapland is one of the most wonderful places to visit. Someone referred to Lapland as an ‘amusement park of nature experiences’, and I think that is a good description of all the wonders and magical atmosphere here,” Oksaharju summarises.
