The Northern Lights Village provides you with innovative glass-roofed Aurora cabins, giving you the chance of seeing the famous light show every night from your bed. What’s more, a tailor-made holiday here allows you to create your perfect winter break by choosing the activities to suit you.

What's included?

ALL OF THE SERVICES LISTED BELOW ARE INCLUDED IN THE HOLIDAY PRICE

  • Flights: return flights from London to Ivalo Airport (either direct or via Helsinki depending on departure date). Routings are subject to change and availability
  • Transfers: return airport transfers
  • Accommodation: a minimum of 3 nights in an Aurora Cabin (but you can stay for as long as you wish. Extra night costs are listed in the 'Dates & Prices' section)
  • Meals: half board
  • Activities: choose from our extensive range of activities (individually priced in the 'personalise' section of the holiday page)
  • Cold weather clothing is provided for the duration of your stay

The Northern Lights Village is the latest in Finland’s increasingly diverse selection of Aurora friendly accommodation. Unlike many destinations where you spend just one night in an Aurora cabin, here it’s for the entire duration of your stay. Essentially, you go to bed under the stars and, with a bit of luck, the Northern Lights, but in the comfort of a warm and cosy glass-roofed cabin.

There are 80 such cabins at the Northern Lights Village which is situated just 1000 metres from the amenities in the centre of Saariselkä. The cabins are cleverly protected from the lights of Saariselkä's more distant ski centre by dense northern woodland. Being in the very heart of the Auroral Zone, the chances of watching the lights whilst lying in bed are really rather good. Wouldn’t that be a story to tell when you get home?

Essentially, these tailor-made Northern Lights holidays have it all: Aurora cabins, easy access to downhill ski slopes and an extensive range of winter activities which can be tailored to suit your requirements.

After selecting your preferred holiday duration (a minimum of three nights is required) you choose the activities that best suit you. Lapland’s gently rolling fells and snowy forests are just waiting to be explored and our team of experts are just a phone call away (01670 785 012) if you need any advice about how best to go about it.

There are dog sledding and snowmobile safaris of various lengths so you can choose whether you want a taster or longer adventure. If you prefer to delve into local traditions and culture then we offer trips to the famous Sámi Siida Museum as well as introductions to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Reindeer are synonymous with this part of the world and meeting a herder and enjoying a gentle reindeer-pulled sleigh ride is another “must-do” activity here in Finnish Lapland.

What’s more, the majority of activities begin at the Northern Lights Village so you’ll waste no time with transfers to activity start points.

Saariselkä also has 15 downhill ski slopes and is renowned for its network of cross-country ski trails so there really is an activity here for everybody.

After darkness falls, it’s time to get out in search of the Aurora and you can also choose your preferred means of tracking down “the elusive lady”. There are remote Aurora Camp excursions along the Russian border, snowshoe hikes, minibus hunts and snowmobile adventures, all of which are led by expert local guides who will do all they can to help you witness an Auroral display.

Our friend Markku, whose vision created the Northern Lights Village, is an Aurora nut. He lives and breathes the Northern Lights and is rarely happier than when he is capturing them on camera. He knows that photographing the Aurora is also an important aim for our guests and all our Northern Lights activities here include elements of Aurora photography.

If you’ve got all the kit, then your guides will help you to capture the lights on your own camera. The guides usually take some pictures as well and if they do, you can buy them to take home as a souvenir. Alternatively, you can rent a camera and tripod locally.

For a flexible Aurora hunting holiday, staying in dedicated Northern Lights accommodation, then there are very few places which can surpass the Northern Lights Village.

Saariselkä Northern Lights Village

Nights: 1-3

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. There’s also a large lobby near reception for you to relax in after your meal.
  • 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. There’s also the option to rent an Aurora Alert buzzer which will vibrate, ring and flash when Auroras are visible during the night. This is payable locally, please contact our Travel Experts for more information.
  • To really complete your winter experience, you could dine in the ice restaurant or even spend a night in one of the ice suites here.
  • For all of your provided winter clothing, simply go to the onsite Safari House where overalls, gloves, boots, skis and snowshoes are stored for easy access.
  • Guests can pay extra to use the hot tub, sauna and ice pool. This can be used during public time or booked for private use.

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.

Free Wi-Fi.

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!

Despite the temperature outside, the Ice Suites stay between -2 and -8 degrees Celsius but you’ll be warm inside the thermal sleeping bag provided and reindeer hide on the bed. 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.

Holiday group size (approximate)

Minimum 2 people (all dates)

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 4 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.

Traveller Reviews

We had a wonderful time 27 December 2018 by Jason Catlett & Cecil Bolen

I normally plan vacations so handing over 3 days to a travel agency was a little uncomfortable for me. It worked out great. We had a wonderful time. I think it was very well put together. No complaints.

Overall very good indeed 07 April 2018 by Susan & Dixon Dilley

Overall very good indeed. All good and difficult to choose but Snow Shoe walk very interesting and informative. Excellent trip - shame about the Northern Lights! Just a little taster one night but very little of a display - will have to return!

Amazing that we could see the lights from inside as well as out. 27 March 2018 by Deborah & Mark Frettingham

The husky ride was a magical trip through the woods. The dogs are obviously well looked after and it was great to steer the sleigh ourselves. An amazing place. Cabins very warm and cosy and amazing that we could see the lights from inside as well as out.

Everything was absolutely amazing 20 March 2018 by Michelle Etheridge & Paul Neale

Everything was absolutely amazing, had the most fantastic holiday. Loved the husky safari, exhilarating, brilliant fun.

It was the perfect holiday 08 March 2018 by Wesley and Gemma Knipe

We absolutely loved everything we did. The aurora hunt was a very special trip even though we didn’t see the aurora at this time. The cross country skiing was so much fun and we were encouraged to go at our own pace through a lovely encouraging guide.

We did the reindeer sleigh ride 06 March 2018 by April and William Legge

We did the reindeer sleigh ride and loved that the guide came down the line and offered to take everyone's picture on their own phone/camera. My husband enjoyed the dog sledding the most!

Fall in love with Finland 20 February 2018 by Tina and Simon Price-Johnson

From the moment my husband and I stepped off the plane at Ivalo airport we were provided with excellent service and advice by the many staff at the Northern Lights Village, Saariselkä. Every detail of our pre-booked activities was provided, and the snowsuits were comfortable and extremely warm. I have osteoarthritis which can be affected by the cold but was not at all during the trip. The

accommodation was very clean and beautifully laid out. Lying at night under the glass roof in the cosy warmth of our cabin, watching the snow fall around the cabins and trees, was sublime. The reindeer sleigh rides were informative and made me feel I was in a film! The beauty of the village was almost unreal. Although I fell off the husky sled whilst driving, I did not hurt myself due to landing in the four feet of snow by the side of the track, and it was thrilling and such an adrenalin rush to drive I wanted to do it again straight away. We were lucky enough to be the only two for the Siida Museum trip and our guide, Yuka, was very well-informed and solicitous of our comfort. Quite simply put, there is nothing that could have been improved about our whole experience. The trip was a dream from start to finish.

The staff at the Northern Lights Village were fantastic, we could not fault them. 19 February 2018 by Kimberley Berridge and Simon Bloom

The holiday was a dream come true. We didn't see the lights but that was ok as the rest of the activities and accommodation were great fun and you almost forgot you were there to see the lights. I loved the snow mobiles, we were lucky enough to be just my partner and I with the guide and we got to stop and start as we pleased. it was fantastic. My partner loved the husky's - very enjoyable

Overall the place is amazing and we loved it. 10 January 2018 by Sarah and Rebecca Skinner

The most enjoyable trip for us was our first trip out to the Lake because we got to see the Northern Lights. Overall the place is amazing and we loved it.

We had a lovely time 03 January 2018 by The Taylor Family

We loved our cabin at the Northern Lights Village. Husky sledge driving was great fun with good instruction.
