Just some of the delights waiting for you in Finland’s far north include.
Northern Lights Safari in Lapland
See nature’s impressive light show! The view of the aurora borealis in Finnish Lapland is better than anywhere else in the world. And even if Mother Nature chooses not to perform, you will thrill at being in the pristine snowy wilderness under a starry sky.
Spoil yourself and spend a night literally under the stars in the Kakslauttannen Glass Igloo Village in the Arctic Circle. See the Northern Lights if you are really lucky, from the comfort of your cosy and warm bed.
Get active with this traditional Finnish activity. It is fun for all age groups and fitness is not a prerequisite! Glide and slide down snowy hilltops to hot refreshments awaiting you in a Lappish Kota.
Animal lovers and thrill seekers – this one’s for you. Meet a team of excited and friendly husky dogs who are raring to go and whisk you through snowy wilderness landscapes. This is a delight for all the family.

The Sami are the local indigenous people of Lapland. Explore their traditions and culture in Inari, as well as in museums in Rovaniemi. You may also visit reindeer farm to learn of local traditions and enjoy Lappish hospitality.
