This holiday includes some real activity highlights. During the daytime, you will spend a morning with a reindeer herder. You’ll get an understanding of the history of herding in this region as well as enjoying a reindeer-pulled sleigh ride through the forest.

As you would expect from the name of this trip, evenings will be dedicated to seeking out the Aurora. Your excursions will take you by snowshoe and snowmobile to remote regions free from light pollution. Here you can sit under the vast Arctic sky and wait for a potential Northern Lights display; hopefully, your patience will be rewarded.

We can think of few better ways to spend some time over the festive period.

Key facts

Duration:3 nights
Pace:Active
Make an enquiry
  • Upon arrival in Lapland, you will be welcomed by your driver before being transferred to your accommodation at Harriniva. Harriniva is located in the far north-west corner of Finland and the backdrop here is a stunning array of forest-covered fells and frozen lakes that are sure to fill you with festive cheer.

    When you arrive at the hotel, you can settle into your cabin before heading to the main building for dinner with the group. You will also be issued with your cold weather clothing and provided with a code to active a Northern Lights app which will alert you if there is solar activity during the duration of your stay.  Regardless of the levels of solar activity all of the local staff will tell you the best advice is to be outside and active to give yourself the best possible chance of seeing the Aurora.

  • On your first full day in Lapland, you will have the chance to meet the animals that the region is most famous for as you head to a nearby reindeer farm.

    Reindeer are of great traditional and economic importance to the region and herding is intrinsic to the way of life here. A herder will take you through the skills and customs of herding and answer any questions you may have about the animals. You will also be shown how to throw a Lappish lasso and enjoy a short ride on a reindeer-pulled sleigh through the forest.

    Whilst at the farm you will enjoy lunch in an ice restaurant at the nearby Torassieppi Winter Village.

    After lunch, you will spend the afternoon participating in an Aurora workshop which will introduce you to the myths, legends and science behind this natural phenomenon. The workshop will be held in a ‘kota’ which is a traditional temporary dwelling used by the Sámi indigenous people. Here you will prepare pancakes on the fire whilst your guide answers any questions in order to give you a better understanding of this otherworldly display of light.

    You will end this activity-packed day with a snowshoe hunt for the Aurora led by your guide. The snowshoes will give you access to a remote area where the views of the night sky are unobstructed and, with some luck, you will have the chance to witness the Northern Lights in all their glory.

  • This morning you will have the opportunity to take part in our opinion, one of the most exciting activities that Lapland has to offer?

    A short walk from the hotel will take you to Harriniva’s dog sled centre. Here, the dogs will be eagerly awaiting your arrival and the chorus of excitable barks will demonstrate this. You will meet the musher who will give you a safety briefing and advise you on how to handle the sled, before setting off on your safari. The sudden silence which surrounds you once the dogs begin to run offers a remarkably tranquil ride, as you glide along the trails in peace. You will cover around 17km in total and two people will share a sled, with the option to swap over half-way through, so both participants will have the chance to drive.

    After dinner, you will head out on your final Northern Lights excursion. Tonight's adventure uses snowmobiles, which are a thrilling way to make the most of the landscape here. Your guide will give a full safety briefing before you set off travelling two people per snowmobile. The guide will pull a sleigh behind their snowmobile for anyone who does not want to drive or have a valid driving license.

    You will make your way to the top of a fell (around 20km away) where you will enjoy warm drinks and wait for the sky to hopefully light up. The snowmobiles provide added mobility and so you will hopefully be able to outrun any localised cloud cover and have your efforts rewarded.

  • Today you will bid farewell to Harriniva as you return to the airport for your flights home.

Included in price

Harriniva Wilderness Hotel

Nights: 1-4

Ideally located in the north-west corner of Finland, high above the Arctic Circle and in the very heart of the Aurora Zone, Harriniva Wilderness Hotel serves as a perfect base for your adventure holiday.

Owned and run by the Pietikäinen family, the hotel has developed a growing reputation for its warm ambience and a large range of enjoyable activities on offer.

Hotel facilities

The hotel has a range of facilities that have been designed to make your stay here as enjoyable as possible.

  • There is free Wi-Fi throughout the main building for guest use, in our experience, we have found it works best in the main reception and dining area
  • The hotel restaurant has a lively, buzzing atmosphere as people excitedly discuss the adventures they have taken part in that day. The meals are served in a buffet style with two or three choices for each course. The food here is hearty and wholesome
  • The hotel also has a pub serving a range of beers, wines and spirits - this is the perfect place to unwind and relax with your fellow guests in the evening
  • Tea and coffee are available throughout the day at reception, but it is not free of charge, so we would recommend taking a travel kettle if this is of particular importance to you
  • In the main reception area of the hotel, you will find a small gift shop selling a range of postcards, soft toys and handcrafted products. There is also a selection of snacks that can be purchased
  • A sauna is available for guest use with separate facilities for men and women. This is free of charge and is heated every evening for around three hours
  • The hotel also has an Aurora Wellness Centre (situated a short walk away on the riverbank), where you can enjoy a range of therapies such as facials or massages. A real treat after a day of soaking up the pristine wilderness! During peak periods, we would strongly recommend booking therapies in advance through reception (all payable locally and we recommend booking in advance if possible)
  • Snowshoes and cross country skis are available to hire for a small charge and there are marked trails surrounding the hotel for those with some experience. For those interested in downhill skiing, reception will be able to arrange a taxi to the nearby ski resort of Olos (payable locally)

Room types

Double/twin rooms

Harriniva has 64 guest bedrooms which consist of twin or double rooms. Triple rooms are also available on request. Decorated in traditional Scandinavian style, all rooms have an en-suite shower room and a hairdryer.

Northern Lights cabins

The hotel has a small number of cabins available on the riverbank, which offer a more secluded accommodation option. The cabins have double or twin beds, a private sauna, an en-suite shower room with a hairdryer, a small kitchen and a lounge area.

Safari House

For those travelling on our longer husky or snowmobile experiences, your nights at the hotel will be spent in shared accommodation in one of Harriniva's Safari Houses. Each has sleeping facilities, a shower room, toilet and a sauna. Some safari houses are on site, whereas others are located 3km from the hotel. If you are staying off-site, you will be transferred to and from the hotel for meals.

Special Nights

Stay in an Aurora Dome

From: £142pp

The remarkable Aurora Domes are situated at both Torassieppi and Jeris, a location just a short transfer away, and offer a unique experience for overnight guests. These dome-shaped tents are filled with cosy features and are simple in style, with fantastic views looking out to the frozen lake beyond. The domes have been designed so that one wall is see through and therefore provides views of the night sky and, with luck, the Northern Lights.

The domes are equipped with a double bed and a wood burning stove, as well as an electric heater. Although the stove and heater will keep the dome in a warm state, we do recommend keeping additional layers to hand, in case you find yourself in need of extra warmth should the fire burn out. The toilet, shower and sauna facilities are located a short walk away (50-100m, approximately).

Clients may be allocated to either destination on arrival. Any required transfers and breakfast are included. For December dates at Torassieppi, you will have dinner at your hotel, prior to transferring to your dome at approximately 8:30/9pm; from early January onwards, you will check-in at approximately 4 pm and have dinner at Torassieppi. If you are staying at an Aurora Dome in Jeris, check-in is approximately 4 pm throughout the season and you will have dinner at Jeris as well.

At both locations, you will check-out after breakfast.

Please note: the price shown is based on your spending the first or final night of your stay in a dome and therefore not requiring a hotel room or cottage. Should you wish to spend an alternative night glamping then additional supplements will apply. Please contact one of our team for a quote.

Holiday group size (approximate)

Minimum 2 people, maximum 24 people (approximately)

GROUP SIZE

We always try to provide an approximation of the group size you can expect to be with for the duration of each of our holidays. It may be that you are joined by others for parts of your holiday (such as transfers and particular activities) but the above number reflects those you can normally expect to be with from beginning to end. If group size is something which is particularly important to you, please speak to our Travel Experts and they can suggest the best holidays for you.

Tailor-made holiday group sizes will vary for all activities as will the group size for any additional activities you book.

MINIMUM NUMBERS REQUIRED FOR A HOLIDAY TO OPERATE

Some of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate (as listed in the ‘Group Size’ section). If your holiday departure has not yet reached the minimum number, you will be told at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your chosen date is not guaranteed by nine weeks before your scheduled departure date, we will contact you to discuss the available options as per our booking conditions.

Itinerary amendments

The order of activities is always subject to change and guests will be provided with their final itinerary upon arrival.

SINGLE SUPPLEMENT

Please note that some of our holidays may incur a single supplement. Please speak to one of our Travel Experts who will provide you with a quotation.

Medical History and advice

We want our holidays to be accessible as they can be and will do our best to accommodate any special requests and requirements where possible. We have a wide range of holidays and destinations and so our travel experts will help find the best holiday for you.

In order to give us the best possible chance to do this we ask that if you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements, that you tell us at the time of enquiry or booking. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. You may need to provide a doctor’s note and proof of insurance in some cases as the health and safety of our clients is absolutely paramount.

In providing this information you are allowing us to work with our expert local partners to ensure that your whole party can enjoy the holiday. By letting us know in advance we can discreetly work with you to adapt any part of the holiday which may potentially be challenging. Being able to prepare for this in advance makes an incredible difference to what we can offer and minimises any impact on your party and the rest of the group.

Unfortunately, if you choose not to share this information with us in advance then it may limit some or all of the itinerary you have booked, and we cannot be held accountable for any additional costs or missed activities resulting from this.

PREGNANCY

If you are pregnant at the time of booking your holiday or you discover you are pregnant prior to your departure, firstly – congratulations! Secondly – please tell us as soon as possible. This situation does arise, and we are able to advise you both from our own first-hand experience and from discussing this at length with our expert local partners who have experience in this area. The more notice you can give us the better, in order to suggest any adaptions to the itinerary you have booked which will reduce the risk to both mother and baby. Please contact our customer service team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

INSURANCE

Insurance is not included in your holiday, but it is a pre-requisite to travelling with us. You will need to ensure that you have cover for all the activities that you will be participating in during your holiday.

It is extremely important that you take out a suitable travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Plans do sometimes change, and you will need this policy should you need to cancel your holiday.

If you are struggling to find a suitable policy then details of our preferred provider, who will cover you for all the activities we offer, can be found on our website by clicking here. Please note that this policy is available to EU residents under the age of 75 only.

Reduced Mobility

If you have a reduced level of mobility, then please contact our travel experts to discuss the suitability of this holiday in relation to your requirements.

Experience and fitness

We offer a vast choice of holidays which range from 'relaxed' to 'active' so there really is something for everyone and our holidays can be filtered by how active they are. Regardless of the chosen holiday, all activities will include tuition from a beginner's level and no prior experience is assumed.

If you are unsure about the physical demands of a particular holiday please contact us and our expert team will be happy to help.

See our booking conditions for further information.

Guides and safety

It is absolutely essential when partaking in any activity that you listen very closely to, and abide by, the instructions provided.

If there is anything that you are unsure of during a safety briefing or that you would like to clarify with the guides please make this clear to them immediately before starting the activity.

Our guides' word on activities is always final and your safety is their principal concern at all times, please respect their decisions. By following their instructions, your safety and enjoyment during each activity will be greatly enhanced.

See our booking conditions for further information.

Booking activities locally

Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).

When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern. In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time.

You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are properly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.

Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.

Car Hire

If your trip includes car hire the named driver must have a credit card registered in their name which they can present when they collect their car along with their driving licence, as a deposit will be held on the credit card.  Please see your trip dossier for full details.

Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.

FLIGHT SCHEDULE CHANGES AND CONNECTING TRANSPORTATION

On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.

Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.

BOOKING YOUR OWN FLIGHTS - CANCELLATION DISCLAIMER 

If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.

If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.

Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.

THE FOREIGN AND COMMONWEALTH OFFICE ADVICE

We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.

The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/                                                    New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.safetravel.govt.nz/                                                  Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau http://voyage.gc.ca/                                                                                                      The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english.html

If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on the holiday, regardless of their nationality.

If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.

If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.

If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.

Aurora alerts

During your stay, you will be supplied with an Aurora alert. This is typically a mobile phone system to which the staff will send a text should the Northern Lights be sighted. The alerts generally operate until 1 am but it is best to confirm with your guide as times may vary.

The alerts are designed as an aid to Aurora hunting and, although every effort will be made to issue an alert should the conditions seem conducive to a display, things can change very quickly so you should not rely solely on them and should also keep an eye on the sky yourself.

Minimum age

The minimum age for participation in our itinerary is 12 years old, however, for some activities and transfers, you may be joined by other guests and this may include some of a younger age than stated. Any younger participants will be fully supervised and the guides will ensure that their participation takes place only if the activities will be unaffected.

Very few hotels have a minimum age and there may be families staying at them with younger children, especially during the holiday periods. We do have some itineraries and destinations which are guaranteed to be adult-only, so if this is important to you please speak to one of our Travel Experts.

To drive a snowmobile, you must have a full driving licence and be over 18 years old.

We would not hesitate to recommend the holiday to our friends 02 January 2015 by Elisabeth Lifford

We thoroughly enjoyed the range of your activities - all new to us & although we didn't see much of the Northern Lights it didn't seem to matter as everything else was so exciting! Driving a team of huskies from a sleigh across snowy fields in the moonlight - was exhilarating and unforgettable. Staff were friendly, helpful & knowledgeable.

Husky safari was fantastic 26 March 2013 by Lisa Rodbourn

Husky safari was fantastic and better than we imagined. Everything was good - it was one of the best holidays I have ever had. It was a unique experience and we met some great people.

Absolutely fabulous 02 February 2013 by Robert Dobson

The trip was absolutely fabulous, a dream come true!!! A bucket list spectacular. The staff and arrangements were absolutety spot on. Everything was catered for. Personally I had a slight medical problem and before setting out I was interviewed by the staff to check that I was able to undertake the task. They had already been briefed before my arrival. They made contingency plans by getting one of

the staff to follow the group for 15 minutes at the start and when we stopped they checked I was ok, which I was. This was both a sensible and very much appreciated safety check. All was OK for me throughout the trip. Also must mention the pre-trip customer service, which was also excellent. Very good with questions and in my personal case, when I injured my leg before the trip, they were able to advise me and the staff in Finland. I give you my special thanks, my dream to do this was hanging on a thread but you assisted in making it come true. WELL DONE!! Overall, words cannot describe how much we loved our trip, due to the expense for us (I am retired), this was worth every single penny. With much thanks.
