Peace of mind for your holiday
We appreciate that Brexit uncertainty has led to some concerns amongst those planning a holiday. However, we want to reassure our guests, that no matter what happens, once you have booked your holiday with us, the cost will not increase as a result of Brexit, even if we incur additional charges.
How will Brexit impact my travel plans?
The UK is set to leave the EU on the 31st January and it now looks likely that the country will enter a transition period until 31st December 2020. If the transition period comes into effect, there will be no immediate change to travel after the 31st January. You will not need to worry about your EHIC card, you will not need to have 6 months validity left on your British passport. Essentially, things will continue exactly as they have been and ABTA have recently changed their travel advice to reflect this.
However, until the UK and EU have both voted to confirm that the UK will leave as planned on the 31st January (the EU will not do so until 29th January 2020), passengers do need to be aware of what the situation may be should the vote not be agreed by the EU.
From the innovative creators of the Northern Lights Village in Saariselkä, comes the fantastic Levi Resort.
Located 16km from Levi centre and featuring 40 Aurora Cabins, the village has been 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.

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.
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.
During many of our Northern Lights holidays, we offer experiences to give you an authentic insight into this fascinating culture. From visiting the Sámi Siida museum to spending time with a local family as they teach you all about reindeer herding, there are plenty of ways for you to learn all about the Sámi life.
