About us

With love, Heidi and Sirly.

The Aurora Estate is owned by two young women who decided to carry out their dreams! We have designed the concept and the main building from the very beginning and we think you see and taste that. We love our small boutique hotel and we especially enjoy ours when we can spoil guests. “Find us, we’ll spoil you” is our slogan!

Find us and we wills spoil you!

We have been friends for many years before establishing the company, but most importantly, we have worked together. We quickly realized that our cooperation works and both have excellent way of handeling pressure. We wanted to build something new and modern but  respect Lapland. Especially the environment where we are.

Aurora Estate  is the dream of two women and have now executed for 3 years. Heidi Seikkula acts as the CEO of our company and manages of the hotel and the restaurant. She also ensures that your dream holiday is well planned before you arrive. Heidi has organized 10 beautiful weddings, many proposals, company meetings and several celebrations. She takes care that when you arrive you have skis waiting, the best safari reserved and your only task is to enjoy. You can feel safe and concentrate on your vacation. Because this is your vacation, and you’ve been waiting for it for a long time.

Sirly Schinmann is in charge of the restaurant’s kitchen. Her artwork is reflected in the presentation of the dishes and in the design of the dishes. Sirly selects the raw materials according to the harvest season and ethics are important for both entrepreneurs, including wine and coffee. When planning the dishes, little element of a surprise is always important, of course not forgetting the great culinary experience. Sirly is also doing a lot of  work as a private chef as well as C-more sports channel food sections. You can see her in the Alps and bowling TV shows. You may remember Sirly in Finland’s first MasterChef TV show, where he was third in ranking.

Our shared love for Ylläs and passion for the industry make us a perfect match and fitting hostesses for Aurora Estate.


We want to build a resort where the tranquility and serenity of Lapland is perfectly captured for our guests. Once you lay your foot in Arora Estate, you can leave the rest of the world behind on focus on enjoying your stay, even if it would be just for cup of coffee or a weeks stay in our cozy Boutique hotel.

We wish you a warm welcome!


Love Sirly & Heidi
