A Christmas filled with activity….

Whilst you should, of course, find some time to relax during your festive break we know that most people will want to really make the most of their time here in Lapland and we have a range of exhilarating trips that take full advantage of the Arctic playground that winter brings to this region.

The deep layer of snow in Lapland is in no way comparable to the grey slush we get here in the UK, and the locals really do make the most of these conditions – playing in the snow on cross-country skissnowmobilessnowshoes and husky sleds.

One of our most popular trips is our Aurora in the Wild holiday to Nellim in Finland over Christmas, which delightfully combines festive celebrations with some of the region’s most beloved pursuits including snowshoeingsnowmobiling, and husky safaris.

There will also be the all important Aurora hunts that will hopefully lead to a successful viewing of the shimmering, dancing display.

Another widely sought after trip is our Northern Lights Quest holiday at Christmas in Harriniva which places you in the heart of the Aurora Zone on the border between Finnish and Swedish Lapland.

On this trip, Christmas day will be spent out in the remarkable snow-topped wilderness, with evening pursuits focused on seeking out the elusive Aurora.

…Or relaxation

Whilst the snow covered scenery of a Lappish Christmas does tempt you out on sleds and skis, it also makes curling up in front of the fire with a hot drink and watching the snow fall by the window seem hugely appealing too. With this in mind we also offer a range of relaxed Christmas trips too!

These include our welcoming trips to Luosto which, whilst including a taste of some of the Arctic’s most beloved activities, also allow plenty of opportunities to relax, enjoy a spa or sauna or simply gaze upon the wonderful scenery outside.

Regardless of how active they are, our trips do everything they can to help you seek out the spectacular sight of the  Aurora with evening pursuits to vantage points where the sky will hopefully dance above you.

Christmas is a time of festivity, joy and excitement and a trip to Lapland will offer all of this and more.
