The Northern Lights Village sits on the outskirts of Saariselka in North East Finland. Sheltered from the light pollution of the town and tucked amongst the trees, the village is an ideal base for those wanting to spend New Year looking for the Northern Lights.

The Aurora Cabins will be your base for the whole of your stay and these partially glass-roofed structures allow you to watch the northern skies from the comfort of your very own bed. Couple this Aurora accommodation with three dedicated Northern Lights hunts and you have the makings of a fabulous Aurora adventure.

In the company of experts, you will spend three evenings in search of the lights. The activities typically kick-off with an Aurora workshop which will give you a grounding in Aurora science. The guides here are keen photographers and so hints and tips on how to capture the Northern Lights on camera will also be provided. You can rent photography equipment locally. Next is a ride in a snowmobile-pulled sleigh which is towed behind your guide’s snowmobile – this is a gentle way to be introduced to the Arctic at night and a fabulous away to hunt for the lights.

During the day, the blue light of deep winter offers a unique perspective on the landscape and you will enjoy some traditional Arctic activities. At this time of year the sun does not appear above the horizon and so the dusky light during the middle of the day provides around four hours of light (please note that some activities may start/end after dark as a result).

Meeting a reindeer herder and their animals is a real pleasure and a sleigh ride is always memorable. Next on the agenda is a snowmobile and ice fishing tour which introduces some of the most popular local activities. For many people though, the highlight will be the dog sled safari which offers a taste of this incredible mode of transport.

On New Year’s Eve there will be some wonderful celebrations at the Northern Lights Village and if the Aurora are dancing overhead when the clock strikes Midnight, it will be an unforgettable way to see in the New Year.

Duration:4 nights
Pace:Active
Make an enquiry
  • Please note: the agenda shown is simply an example order for the activities and your final agenda will be provided on arrival in Saariselkä.


    You will arrive at Ivalo Airport today and a driver will be waiting to transfer you to the Northern Lights Village. Your Aurora accommodation will be ready for you to settle into.

    Depending on what time you arrive, you will either have dinner in the main restaurant or a smaller dinner provided to you in the restaurant outside of their usual opening hours.

  • Reindeer are synonymous with Lapland and an encounter with them is practically mandatory. Your guide will introduce you to the animals and shall provide an insight into how the reindeer and their herders survive the long winters and keep this age-old way of life alive.

    The reindeer paddock is situated in the village and here you will see the animals up close and will be able to feed them. There will then be the chance for you to enjoy a short reindeer-pulled sleigh ride as part of the experience. Lunch will be served in a warm kota (traditional teepee) at the Northern Lights Village and with this included, the activity will last between three and four hours.

    This afternoon, you will enjoy an Aurora Workshop with an expert guide. Your host will give you hints and tips on how to capture the Northern Lights on camera. If you do not have a camera such as a DSLR then they are available to hire locally.

    Tonight is, of course, New Year’s Eve and the Northern Lights Village will host a special evening meal with some local specialities. There will also be a firework display to mark the end of the year. Fingers crossed, the Northern Lights may join in the fun.

    Following the celebrations, your guide will lead you on your inaugural hunt by snowmobile-pulled sled. You’ll break to enjoy hot drinks by a fire and listen to local stories told by your guide as you eagerly await a potential display. The anticipation felt during the hunt is part of the enjoyment, and with a little luck, the conditions will be promising for you tonight. You will be out for around three hours in total.

  • After breakfast today, you are in for a real treat. Your guide will be leading you on an activity which combines two of the most popular pastimes in Lapland – snowmobiling and ice fishing.

    After full instruction and a safety briefing, you will ride your snowmobiles through the forest and out to a nearby frozen lake. Travelling two per machine, you can swap drivers should you wish at the halfway point (you must be over 18 and hold a full driving licence to drive a snowmobile).

    At the lake, your guide will help you drill a hole through the thick ice and you will drop your line into the icy water below. This can be a game of patience but if you are lucky you might land a perch or perhaps a local Inari whitefish.

    Whilst you focus on the fishing, your guide will build a fire and you will enjoy lunch in the wilds (weather permitting) before heading back on the snowmobiles. You will be out for around four hours in total today.

    During your free time this afternoon you may like to include additional activities which can be found in the ‘Personalise’ section of the holiday page.

    After dinner at the hotel tonight, it’s time for an evening of Aurora hunting. Lasting around three hours in total, it begins with a bus journey north to Lake Inari. The guides have a selection of camps set up on the lake shore and each is in a prime Aurora viewpoint. At the chosen camp, a fire will be lit, and warm drinks and snacks will be shared as you commence your Aurora stake-out. With a little luck and the right conditions, your patience will hopefully be rewarded with a display.

  • A dog sled safari is often a highlight for guests in Lapland and today you will have the chance to experience it for yourself.

    After transferring you will meet the dogs - they will demonstrate their enthusiasm for the trail with a pretty deafening display of howling and barks when you arrive – they just love to run and their excitement overflows when guests get ready to take them out. You will, however, notice that when the sleds’ runners begin to move, all the dogs will fall silent and focus on the task at hand.

    We include an excursion which is around two and a half hours long (including a break for hot drinks, transfers and training) in total and includes around one to one and a half hours of dog sledding depending on the conditions. You shall cover around 10km during the safari.  You can, however, upgrade to a longer experience should you wish to do so and the details of the options available can be found in the ‘Personalise’ section of the holiday page.

    All safaris are two people per sled as standard and full instruction will be provided before you take control of the teams. You can switch drivers should you wish to do so.

    After your adventurous morning, lunch will be served at the restaurant back at the Northern Lights Village. Your afternoon is your own and so you may wish to include additional activities or perhaps explore the town of Saariselkä which is within walking distance. There are plenty of shops to keep you busy and downhill skiing is also an option.

    Your final Aurora hunting activity is one of the most thrilling. You will be back on snowmobiles tonight, using them to hopefully track down an Aurora display. This experience is very different as only your headlights illuminate the dark forest and you really get a sense of the wilderness which surrounds you. Winding your way through the forests you will climb to the top of one of the fells where the views of the night sky are stunning.

    Your guide will light a fire as you wait in the wilds for a potential display to come and mark your final night in Lapland.

    In total, you will be out for around three hours and full driving instructions will be provided before departure. Again, you will travel two people per snowmobile and the driver must be over 18 and hold a full driving licence.

  • Following breakfast, it will be time to leave the Northern Lights Village behind. As you are departing on an early flight, a packed breakfast will be provided for you to take with you on your transfer.

Included in price

Saariselkä Northern Lights Village

Nights: 1-4

Located in North East Finland, the Northern Lights Village sits on the outskirts of the ski resort of Saariselkä. Tucked away from the town and separated from it by dense forest, the location is ideal for viewing the Northern Lights but is still within walking distance (around 1000m) of the town’s amenities. The ski slopes can be accessed via a shuttle (small charge applies) or a pleasant walk of around 40-50 minutes.

The Northern Lights Village offers accommodation in Aurora Cabins which are half-roofed with glass. The twin or double beds are situated beneath the panoramic roof and provide the chance to view the Northern Lights from your bed! It’s not often that folk prefer a sleepless night but here it’s not considered to be a huge inconvenience as it provides the chance to potentially witness Mother Nature’s greatest light show!

There are 80 cabins in total, all of which are within a 5-10 minutes’ walk of the Village’s central facilities which include the restaurant where you’ll enjoy breakfast and dinner.

Facilities

  • The village restaurant is an atmospheric place, inspired by traditional wooden kotas (Finnish teepees). Breakfast is a buffet of continental options and some hot dishes. Evening meals are a buffet with starters of soups and salad, a choice of local meat or fish will follow (the reindeer and white fish in this region are delicious!). Typically a cake will be served for pudding, keeping you well-fuelled for your nocturnal Aurora hunting adventures. Dietary requirements are all well-catered for as long as we are informed at the time of booking.
  • The Northern Lights Village has an onsite reindeer farm and all activities (including the reindeer safaris) start in the village so there is no need for time-wasting transfers. Basically, because we want to make your holiday as uncomplicated as possible, life is made very easy here.
  • The Northern Lights Village is home to a herd of reindeer and you can watch them go about their business as you eat breakfast in the restaurant.
  • Saariselkä is around a 20-25 minute walk from the Northern Lights Village (40-50 minutes to the ski slopes) which means that all of the amenities, shops, cafés and local restaurants are within easy reach.
  • For all Northern Lights activities, an expert guide will provide you with photographic tuition. If you do not have an SLR camera and tripod then they can both be rented locally. The guides sometimes take pictures throughout the activities which can be purchased on your return to the village, if they take any.

Aurora Cabins

The Aurora Cabins have a half-glass roof and all face north. The design is based on the traditional wooden kotas (teepees) of Finland and has been specifically created for the village.

Each cabin has twin beds (which can be made into a double) and a sofa bed, suitable for an additional adult. There is a shower room (with underfloor heating) and a toilet, as well as a luggage storage area. Tea and coffee making facilities, a hairdryer and a minibar are also included.

Importantly for duvet-based Aurora hunting, a timer switch can be used to heat the glass roof should your view be obscured by snowfall. It takes approximately 5-10 minutes to heat and melt the snow so there’s no need to go and sweep the roof in your pyjamas!

Cabins are not cleaned between arrival and departure unless requested from reception. Additionally, towels can be exchanged at reception if required.

Wi-Fi is only available at the onsite restaurant.

Special Nights

Ice Suite

From: £142pp

Guests can choose to spend a unique night in these incredible structures made completely of ice and snow. Hand-carved sculptures decorate every suite, even the king-sized bed is made of ice!

Located just 30 metres from the main building, you’re close to toilet facilities as the suites do not have their own bathroom.

You can pick any night during your time here to stay in an Ice Suite but please note, if you choose to do so during the middle of your stay then your Aurora Cabin may change. You can also keep your Aurora Cabin for the night at an extra charge. There is luggage storage available should you need it. Up to two people can stay in one Ice Suite.

Available: between mid-December and mid-April, exact dates dependent on weather conditions.

Other options

Activities

Snowshoe hike in the fells

From: £76pp

The beauty of snowshoeing is that it provides the chance for wildlife encounters, as the local flora and fauna will not be scared off by the noise of engines or the sound of sleds. So, for nature lovers, this is an ideal choice as your local guide will provide information on the wildlife and its natural environment. You may have the chance to witness Siberian Jay, willow grouse or a herd of roaming reindeer.

You will also enjoy a light campfire lunch in the great outdoors to refuel you halfway through the walk. 

Group size: 1-16 (approximately)

Husky safari upgrade options

From: £65pp

A husky safari is one of those experiences you are likely to remember for the rest of your life. Once the dogs are running and the sled enters the wilderness surrounding Saariselkä, all else is forgotten.

Whilst we do include a safari in the holiday, we know that many people like to extend this activity and so the option is listed below for you. It is based on two people per sled but if you would like your own team then this can be arranged on request for a supplement.

Read more about this activity

Upgrade to a 20 km trip

This safari will see you cover around 20km during around 2-2.5 hours of driving.

In total, you will be away from the Village for around four and three-quarter hours (duration includes transfers, training and lunch).

Driving time: 2 – 2.5 hrs (depending on weather and track)

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.

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.
