One of the most magical places in the world, a place of mystery and legends, Lapland is well known for its spectacular unspoilt scenery. With its gentle hills and snow-laden forests, the landscape lends itself well to a whole host of snow activities – from downhill and cross-country skiing to tobogganing and snowmobiling.
The Northern Lights
Also known as the Aurora Borealis, this dazzling light show is worthy of a bucket list and will make your Lapland holiday even more magical. Head to the remote spots north of the Arctic Circle, away from artificial light pollution, to increase your chances of seeing one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The best time to see the aurora is from November to April.
Meet Santa and his Elves
There is nothing more magical than meeting Santa and his friendly Elves in the Arctic Circle. It is the ultimate festive family treat! With Santa’s Lapland, you will have a chance to visit Santa’s Artistic Igloo and meet his Huskies and Reindeer, as well as enjoy an abundance of exhilarating activities including a reindeer sleigh ride, a husky sled ride and much more.
Husky, Reindeer and Snowmobile Safaris
Take a seat in a snowmobile or a sled pulled by reindeers or huskies and experience an exciting ride through a snowy landscape. Longer rides also include traditional lunch and hot beverages – and offer thus a traditional and fun way to learn about the local culture.
Lainio Snow Village
The unique Lainio Snow Village is entirely constructed with snow and ice. Spend a night in an impressive ice hotel, enjoy food and drinks in the bar and restaurant, admire explicitly built snow and ice sculptures and have fun on several snow slides.
