About Jane Warner
My name is Jane, I enjoy walking our dog, swimming and cycling. I have been running Fun With Santa Oy since I purchased the cabin back in 2006.
Jane Warner purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Jane Warner chose Äkäslompolo
I first visited Lapland in 2005 and fell in love with the village. I purchased the cabin as I felt safe in the village. At first thought I would let the cabin out through the rental company and it would be a good place for me to go and re-charge my batteries. This has all changed and I now organize more of the bookings to the cabin myself. Some of the clients just rent the cabin from me others prefer me to arrange the whole itinerary for them in Lapland.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is located about 1 km from the centre of the village. It is in a quiet location, with views from the back of the cabin into the forest. It has a cosy log fire and its a private sauna, which is really handy after a busy day in the snow.

We both had a fantastic holiday, amazing trips and activities in the beautiful snows. Lovely cabin and organiser, Jane dealt with all the injuries as to when and promptly. Big thank you for the wonderful magical holiday in Lapland 😊
Tranquility in the Forest
The cabin was much more than our expectations. Everything was as described in the brochure. From the transfer from the airport, the welcome pack of essentials (tea, coffee etc), the location and the transfer back to the airport all went like clockwork. Although out of season with more reindeer than people, it's the sort of holiday we enjoy. We hired mountain bikes to explore further, as well as walking the xcountry tracks that we have enjoyed in the Winter. The supermarket is well stocked, but only one restaurant TheTower was open. We will definitely recommend the cabin and look forward to returning there ourselves.
Amazing and Beautiful
My husband and I are always trying to find places of beauty and quietness. This place is one of them. If you are the type of person that wants to get away from daily routines and people go there. The scenery is stunning and you are surrounded by complete nature and serenity. Thereare lots of walks around you and long open roads.
Forrests and lakes are all around you. The cabin is very cosy and has everything you need. A home away from home.
Thank you Jane, we had a really great time!
