Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and a free day before participating in a fascinating interactive photography workshop that will equip you to capture the magnificent Northern Lights should they make an appearance during your trip. You will learn invaluable techniques from a seasoned photographer which will empower you to compose advanced photographs that you can treasure for years to come.  The workshop will last around one hour.
In the evening, an adventure by snowshoe awaits. Used since ancient times, snowshoeing is a popular Lappish activity that allows you to walk through deep snow. Your local guide will lead you through the tranquil woodland at night to a cosy hut nestled in the fells. Listen to Nordic tales and warm up with a comforting hot drink by the fire as you anticipate a performance by the Northern Lights. Who will be first to spot their emerging green ribbons or undulating dancing?

Following a hearty breakfast, a short transfer will take you to meet your very own team of huskies. These magnificent dogs will be excited to greet you and provide the perfect Lappish photo opportunity. After an informative briefing, you and your huskies will embark on your safari. Once driving along the untouched trail, the dogs will fall silent, running at full speed as you glide effortlessly through the crisp, white fells.

You will ride two per sled, with the option to swap drivers halfway through. The activity will last approximately 2 hours in total (including transfers and instructions), travelling for approximately 10km. We expect you to be out on the husky sledge for around one hour in total.

The action continues after lunch with a snowmobile adventure. A trip to Lapland wouldn’t be complete without experiencing this exhilarating pursuit. Snowmobiling is an integral mode of transport for the local people in these remote parts and offers guests the chance to engage in the Finnish way of life.  You will be out for around two hours in total stopping along the way to take photographs of the glistening wilderness and enjoy a hot drink. Please note that the driver of a snowmobile must be at least 18 years old and hold a valid driving licence

Address : Pyhä, Finland

Symbolic of wisdom, resourcefulness and intelligence, reindeers are the essence of Lapland and meeting these majestic creatures is a must-do activity on any holiday to the Arctic region.

After a short transfer, you will meet the reindeer and have the opportunity to feed them. Following this, you will enjoy a one-hour (approximately) ride on a reindeer-pulled sleigh (2-4 people per sleigh) – this was once a traditional method of transport before the introduction of snowmobiles. You will venture into the snow-covered forest and lunch will be served at the reindeer farm. The activity will last for around two and a half hours in total.

Your final evening offers another exciting opportunity to glimpse the magnificent Northern Lights, this time by heated sleigh. Your expert guide will lead you through the enchanting wilderness to a welcoming fire. Delight in hot drinks and snacks as your guide shares interesting stories as you prepare to behold the wondrous Northern Lights. This activity is approximately three hours long.

Northern Lights Village Pyhä

In 2023, one of our favourite partners, Northern Lights Village, launched their brand new destination in Pyhä. We have been privileged enough to watch this awesome team create two of our most popular destinations from the initial concept stage right through to the professional operation to which we send hundreds of happy guests each month during the Autumn and Winter seasons.

The small village of Pyhä is around 130km North of the Arctic Circle and around 90 minutes from Rovaniemi airport. The Northern Lights Village is located about 5km from the nearby downhill ski resort.  The village is set in a beautiful, picturesque snowy forest and just a very short walk away you can find the frozen Lake Pyhäjärvi.

There is a restaurant and reception building on site where all your meals will be served. At a safari house you will be issued cold-weather clothing, and this is the meeting point for your activities. Please note that hot water is limited in certain accommodation types.
