Safari house for Christmas House Safaris in Rovaniemi Lapland Finland

Rovaniemi Log House Ltd has recently completed another beautiful project: safari house made out of wooden log near our hometown of Rovaniemi Lapland Finland. The safari house was ordered by a local tour operator Christmas House Safaris, what is owned by Santa Claus Holiday Village. The safari house is the heart of a newly established reindeer farm situated a short drive away from Rovaniemi Lapland Finland.

The safari house is situated in a truly beautiful forest area, near the lake. It is surrounded by pristine nature, yet, it’s only a 20 minutes drive a way from the Santa Claus Village.

Wooden log is the main construction material. It is very warm, aesthetically beautiful and requires no maintenance! Perfect for a forest residence like this one.

This house uses some of the thickest logs available through Rovaniemi Log House Ltd – laminated log 243x275mm. This ensures a great insulation from the elements, particularly the harsh Lappish winter, as well as structural stability. A detached wooden chalet certainly would use a less thick log.

On the outside, the wooden log is painted with a nice dark paint that protects it from moist. Repainting every 5–10 years is possible.
