Harriniva has always been one of our most popular destinations for so many reasons. The balance that the destination offers is wonderful; warm and welcoming accommodation, great hospitality, a renowned reputation for activities, exceptional guides and of course a fabulous Northern Lights record.

Staying in either hotel rooms or cabins at Harriniva, guests will spend four nights here, enjoying the best that Lapland has to offer.

During the daytime activities include an unforgettable dog sled safari, exhilarating snowmobile trip and an informative visit to a reindeer farm. You will also be out hunting the Northern Lights during three evenings of dedicated Aurora activities, exploring on foot using snowshoes, by snowmobile and utilising a minibus to hopefully chase down the lights.

This holiday provides a wonderful balance of activities and exceptional Northern Lights opportunities.

  • Seeing the Northern Lights was everyone's dream come true...AWESOME! 17 February 2016 by Richard Boittier

    The whole trip was very well organised and we always felt the staff were making every effort to ensure we were completely satisfied. We were a family of 7, so everyone had their own special moment. Seeing the Northern Lights was everyone's dream come true...AWESOME! We embraced every activity! Our excellent holiday began with the first call to Barry Nolan. We had concerns about our Son's special

    needs and dietary requirements. Barry took his time to go through every aspect of what may be involved with the various activities and assured us of how the staff on-site would take care of us. When we arrived at Harriniva, everything that Barry had said was reflected by the local team. Despite a late arrival, the staff took the time to reassure us that they had prepared special meals for my son and showed us where all his food could be found on the buffet. For the activities, our guide Becky was truly amazing! Her knowledge and experience was second to none, but more importantly, her patience and understanding with our son was just brilliant. She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure he had a great time. A very special thank you to Becky!

  • This was the best trip we have ever been on 10 February 2016 by Rebecca Hancock

    This was the best trip we have ever been on. We've only ever made up our own itineraries and travel arrangements in the past, but we were nervous about doing something so adventurous and yet so remote, which is the reason we opted to go via Aurora Zone. Everything was perfect. (Most enjoyable activity): Seeing the Northern Lights, because we had resigned ourselves to the fact that we probably

    wouldn't, given the weather! Other than that, snowmobiling was great fun whizzing across the snowy landscape. It helped that the group size was very small and the guide was knowledgeable and friendly (Jenny). She even took loads of photos with her own camera and WhatsApped them to us afterwards, which really went above and beyond. The reindeer and husky safaris were also great. Absolutely WONDERFUL trip. We desperately want to go back as soon as we can. We couldn't believe how friendly and welcoming the Harriniva staff were and the lengths they went to to make our experience so special. Also, our rep Katrina was great - we had a bit of an accident on our transfer to the igloo when we realised we had left a pair of walking boots in the van. Katrina rang round at nearly midnight and made sure we got them back, which was much appreciated!

  • Our trip was perfect 29 April 2013 by Debra Carlson

    Our trip was perfect. The small group was pleasant (and all participants quite amiable). Each day was very well organized, but never felt rushed. And the local guides were all incredibly patient - no mean feat at the end of the season! Most enjoyable: Seeing the Aurora Borealis, and driving a dog sled. Both firsts for us, and not something we can do in our country (at least not like this). And it

  • The whole holiday was very well organised 22 March 2013 by Victoria Yandall

    The whole holiday was very well organised from my initial contact with The Aurora Zone right up until we touched back down in the UK. The information provided in advance was very helpful and I always received a prompt and polite reply to e-mails and phone calls. It was great to be met at the airport and Emma provided the right amount of information and was very friendly and approachable. Favourite

    activity: If I had to pick it would probably be the two day husky safari, but everything was really good. Least favourite: Stopping for tea and coffee on the night of the snowshoeing, because our hands got absolutely frozen! The snowshoeing itself was fun though.

  • Totally different to anything else we had done 11 March 2013 by Christopher Sweby

    Husky sledges were totally different to anything else we had done (and we had the Northern Lights out in the wilderness). Snowshoeing - it was very hard work; Improvements: It was about right.
