Peace of mind for your holiday

Book now to secure your holiday price and have peace of mind, that no matter what the outcome of Brexit is, the cost of your holiday will stay the same.

With our ‘Brexit Guarantee’*, you can rest assured that you can book your holiday now and no matter what happens in relation to Brexit, the result of Brexit won’t increase your holiday price, even if we incur additional costs.

As Brexit continues to be negotiated, we understand that this uncertainty may lead to concern amongst those planning a holiday. Though we will not know final answers until a deal is agreed, or a no-deal exit is confirmed, both the government and ABTA maintain that travel should not be affected.

We have put together some Brexit FAQs below, but if you have any further concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.

Levi resort - coming soon!

From the innovative creators of the Northern Lights Village in Saariselkä, we’re pleased to announce a BRAND NEW resort is coming to The Aurora Zone in November 2019.

The Levi Resort is 16km from Levi centre and will feature 40 Aurora Cabins designed to give you a truly memorable stay during your winter holiday to Finnish Lapland and the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

These glass-roofed cabins will give you clear views of the night sky right from the comfort of your bed. What better way to search for the Northern Lights than while you’re wrapped up warm in your duvet looking up at the sky in an Aurora Cabin?

Levi sits in the far north of Finland, high above the Arctic Circle putting it well within the Aurora Zone. This means that it has great Northern Lights viewing potential and with their glass roofs, these Aurora Cabins certainly make the most of it.

The Levi Resort accommodation will be bookable very soon for our 2019 winter dates. Please email us for more information: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us on 01670 785 012

Dedicated Aurora accommodation

We’re thrilled to introduce the new innovative design in Aurora accommodation from the Apukka Resort in Rovaniemi, Finnish Lapland; the Aurora 360 Cabin.

You’ll be nice and cosy inside the wonderful two-tiered cabin. It comes equipped with electric fireplace and a panoramic glass roof right above your bed for 360o views of the Arctic sky.

Sleeping under a starry sky is enticing enough but with the prospect of seeing the Northern Lights dance above you as you lay in bed, this experience becomes unmissable.

Many people associate the Northern Lights with the cold depths of winter, and though we have seen some excellent displays come out of our Aurora Zone destinations this season, we’re also extremely excited to see what March will bring.

The Sámi People

Who are the Sámi people?

The Sámi people are the only indigenous people of the European Union and are one of the oldest living cultures. They have been surviving the harsh conditions of Sami Land (also known as Lapland) for thousands of years so it’s no surprise that they’re known for their close connection to the land.

Sami country (Sápmi) and where the Sámi people live now is in Northern parts of Norway, Finland, Sweden and parts of Russia. The total population is estimated at 80,000 to 100,000 people.
