Founded by Tommi Lehtonen and Eerik Rusanen, who together bring forth a decade of villa rental and luxury travel market expertise, Hideout Villas is a unique venture that realises the pair’s vision of bridging the gap between the soaring demand for upscale travel experiences in Finland and the limited supply.
Finland’s Lapland region, with its enchanting qualities, has become a magnet for travellers seeking authenticity, an exotic setting, tranquillity, safety, pristine air and breathtaking natural beauty. This northern wonderland boasts remarkable natural phenomena like the mesmerising Northern Lights and endless snowfalls, making it one of the most distinctive destinations globally. Additionally, Finland’s increasingly pleasant summer climate attracts visitors from all over, with the vast Finnish Archipelago, the world’s largest, as a hidden gem to explore.
With such incredible landscapes on its doorstep, Hideout Villas aims to celebrate all Finland offers while setting a new benchmark for premium travel experiences in the country. Drawing on its founders’ extensive market knowledge, the company has secured access to private luxury properties not available through public channels. These upscale holiday homes, many of which are secret treasures set in awe-inspiring locations, come equipped with surprisingly high-end features. Imagine watching the Northern Lights in bed beneath heated skylight windows or enjoying champagne kept at the perfect temperature in a well 100m below ground. Outdoor jacuzzis and panoramic saunas have become standard features in many of these exclusive properties; an amenity travellers particularly relish during their vacations.
Transforming these private properties into five-star abodes is just the beginning for Hideout Villas. They endeavour to match the hospitality standards of first-class hotels, which is achieved through meticulously preparing each home for its guests, from interior styling to equipment provisioning and everything in between. The goal is to ensure every aspect of a guest’s stay is tailored to perfection — and when it comes time to welcome them to their home away from home, guests can expect to be greeted by Michelin-star personal chefs, VIP hosts/drivers, housekeepers and expert wilderness guides.
For many, exotic experiences are the primary reason to visit Lapland, and to ensure travellers get the most out of their trip here, Hideout Villas carefully selects and tests every activity on offer. With the assistance of local guides, the company continually innovates and develops new ways to create spectacular experiences. From extraordinary excursions to traditional Lappish activities such as husky sledging, snowmobile safaris and private Santa Claus visits, Hideout Villas brings a personal touch to every adventure. The company strives to introduce fresh and exciting additions to its repertoire every year: for the upcoming season, this thrilling new offering is the Northern Lights flights. With a duration of approximately 30 minutes, these journeys are conducted aboard a state-of-the-art six-seater, twin-engine private plane. As travellers soar above the clouds, the experience of hunting for the Northern Lights reaches new heights, providing the optimal opportunity to witness this remarkable natural phenomenon from a privileged perspective.
In summary, Hideout Villas is more than just a luxury accommodation provider. It’s a gateway to exclusive, private properties transformed into five-star havens. Complemented by top-tier hospitality and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, Hideout Villas are a must-visit for those seeking unforgettable adventures and unmatched serenity in Finland’s lap of luxury.
