The village of Luosto lies 90 minutes north of the Arctic Circle, right at the heart of Finnish Lapland. This tailor-made Northern Lights holiday allows you to explore according to your own interests and at your own pace. Highly rated by our holidaymakers every year, it’s the perfect opportunity to put together your ideal Lapland experience.

Journey around the shimmering landscapes of nearby Pyhä-Luosto National Park on efficient snowmobiles – there is a whole variety of routes on offer, from 10km safaris to 100km trails through the fells. You might wish to embrace a more natural form of speed and go on a dogsledding ride: easily the most popular activity on our winter holidays, and an undeniable thrill that cannot be missed.

Taking a break from husky and machine to personally connect with your surroundings, you should definitely take a lesson in cross-country skiing, which makes for an energetic and traditional way to fill part of the day. Snowshoeing is a slower alternative and will take you deep into white environments – there is also the option of trying this out at night while searching for the Northern Lights, combining two Finnish pleasures in the process. Other activities particularly linked to Lapland include seeing the workings of a regional reindeer farm and learning the basics of ice-fishing; for a truly Luosto-specific attraction, pay a visit to the enchanting Lampivaara Amethyst Mine.

All in all, you have the luxury of choosing. The basic holiday price includes flights, transfers and half-board accommodation in a cosy spa hotel. Cold weather clothing is provided for the duration of your stay. 

All activities are individually priced, and each person who books five or more activities in advance of travel (excludes accommodation upgrades and equipment hire) will receive a 5% discount off the total price of their activities.
