Here are our top three picks for your dream Valentines break:

  1. Muotka

Whisk your Valentine away to a cosy lodge at Muotka in snowy Finland and try out all of those ‘must-do’ winter activities. Experience a thrilling dog sled safari on the snow-laden fells, embark on an exhilarating snowmobile trip and of course, enjoy three dedicated hunts for the Northern Lights.

For a more “boutique” short break, head to the brand-new, adult-only Nangu Hotel nestled peacefully on the shores of Finland’s mystical Lake Inari. Combine evenings spent searching for the Northern Lights with daytimes visiting a reindeer farm, getting to know the local indigenous culture at Sámi Siida Museum, dog sledding and snowshoeing.

How about sleeping under the stars in a half-glass roofed Aurora Cabin for two at Saariselkä? Nothing could be more memorable for your romantic break!

With our tailor-made-break, you can design your own itinerary. Choose between snowmobiling, reindeer sleigh rides, huskies and so much more!
