The Northern Lights Village is brand new for this year and has been lovingly created by one of the most renowned Aurora photographers who holds a real passion for the Northern Lights.

The half glass-roofed cabins lie on the outskirts of Saariselkä, separated by thick forest and facing away from any light pollution with a prime view to the north. Out here in the Finnish wilderness, the peace and tranquillity are sublime and the landscape is truly enchanting: snow-covered trees, frozen lakes and wintery fells create a breathtaking scene.

Very few places offer the chance to stay in an Aurora cabin for the duration of your trip, whilst also providing the chance to take part in a huge array of activities with expert guidance from professional Aurora photography guides along the way. So if you are looking for unique accommodation, brilliant activities and a chance to learn from the Aurora experts, then this is the holiday for you. With a season spanning from December (including Christmas and New Year) through to late March, you can choose when you would like to travel. Furthermore, close to the Northern Lights Village are the small ski slopes of Saariselkä, so if you would like to go skiing while enjoying your time here, this is also an option.

The beauty of this tailor-made trip is that you can pick and choose the activities you would like to take part in, as well as having the option to add on extra nights so that you can extend your time in this truly wonderful location. With a variety of Northern Lights hunts available, including the chance to head to a camp close to the Russian border, there are plenty of opportunities to search for the Aurora. Furthermore, what makes the Northern Lights hunts here extra special, is that your guide is an expert Aurora photographer and so you have the chance to learn from the best in your attempt to capture an image of the lights!

A host of daytime activities, such as snowmobiling to the fells, dog sledding through the trees and enjoying a sleigh ride pulled by reindeer, give you the chance to take part in some wonderful winter-time fun. All the activities are led by experienced guides and after a day of excitement, you can enjoy a warming, traditional dinner in the Northern Lights Village’s restaurant, which is a short walk away from your accommodation and has panoramic windows looking out onto the adjacent reindeer farm.

In the evening, if you would like to relax and unwind, you can simply retire to your Aurora cabin and scour the skies in search of the Northern Lights.

We include more, no hidden costs

On each of our holidays, you will see a clear outline of exactly what's included in the price of your holiday. We never use 'headline' or 'lead-in' prices like so many tour operators, as we prefer to include as much as we can, rather than see our clients incur considerable additional costs in our destinations.

Group sizes and minimum numbers

Most of our holidays require a minimum number of participants to operate. Minimum numbers are detailed on each holiday page and are always approximate. Group sizes for tailor made holidays will vary for each of the activities. For private departures you may also be joined by other guests during the activities unless you have discussed specific private activities with us.

If your selected date has not yet reached minimum numbers you will be informed at the time of booking. In the unlikely event that your chosen date has not reached the required minimum numbers nine weeks before your scheduled departure date we will contact you and discuss the various options available to you. We will always do all we can to operate a holiday and in some cases we may be able to operate the holiday by combining your itinerary with that of other guests for some activities (this may mean that the maximum group size is increased but this will be discussed in full with you).

If we are unable to operate the holiday then you will be offered the chance to transfer to an alternative holiday or date (subject to availability). If the alternative is more expensive you will be asked to pay the difference, if it is cheaper then you will be reimbursed. You will also be offered the option to cancel and receive a full refund of all monies paid.
