A New Year’s Eve to remember

We have a wide variety of trips to choose from over New Year.

Some of our most popular trips such as those to Nellim, Muotka and Harriniva offer some memorable and exciting activities to go alongside the New Year festivities, such as snowmobiling into the snow-topped wilderness, driving an excitable team of huskies through the trees or strapping on cross-country skis to tackle the landscape like a local.

Our Nangu and Menesjärvi trips are also popular with those looking to see out a year in serious style. 

Both exude the welcoming atmosphere of family-run hotels, ensuring a fun-filled and friendly New Year celebration that is combined with activities by day and Northern Lights hunts by night.

Whilst New Year’s Eve in Lapland is an altogether more laid-back affair you can be sure to enjoy a lovely evening on the 31st December. Gala dinners are common, allowing you to sample some delicious Scandinavian specialities alongside international dishes and of course some celebratory drinks.

Actual celebrations at midnight can vary; there may be fireworks or music, or you may simply be able to step outside and gaze up at an Aurora display (fingers crossed), but you can be sure of an enjoyable and memorable start to the New Year.

Kick start your resolutions

Booking one of our trips for New Year will hopefully help you to kick start those resolutions.

Maybe you will decide to travel more. In coming to Lapland you are visiting a region that is still relatively undiscovered, so you have already gone further north in Europe than most people.

Likewise, maybe your resolution was to tick off a bucket list item. A common feature on many people’s list is to see the Northern Lights and, with our handpicked locations and dedicated searches, we will give you the best possible opportunity to witness a display.

Another of your resolutions may simply be to experience more new things. Our trips do just that – spend a day with a reindeer herder at Menesjärvi, sleep in an Aurora Bubble at Nellim, drive a snowmobile at Harriniva, or snowshoe under the stars at Nangu.

There are a wealth of experiences that will help you achieve your New Year’s resolutions alongside creating memories that are sure to last much longer than the next 12 months.
