Authentic Lapland Experiences
Short breaks & fully-inclusive escapes
From cosy log cabins with crackling open fires and private saunas to wilderness lodges and boutique retreats, our winter holidays in Finnish Lapland offer an authentic Arctic experience. Based in pristine wilderness, you’ll explore Narnia-like forests by snowshoe, snowmobile and husky sled. Far from light pollution, the aurora borealis can shine brightly here – just step outside and look up…
Holidays to Finland in summer are just as exciting. Roused from hibernation, brown bears mingle with lynx, wolverine and other secretive creatures of the taiga forest. Our Finnish bear watching holidays put you in prime spots for unforgettable encounters. The long, lazy days of summer are also perfect for a houseboat holiday on the lakes of Central Finland.

Holiday Types And Experiences
Bordered by Sweden to the west and Russia to the East, Finland is a sparsely populated country of wide open landscapes and easy access to nature with over two-thirds covered in trees and almost 188,000 lakes. Add in a long coastline, intriguing wildlife, quiet villages and lively towns and the holiday opportunities become apparent.
During the winter, the breathtaking scenery of Finnish Lapland, where mile upon mile of pristine snow-covered wilderness and picture-perfect forests dominate the landscape, draws most attention. Home to herds of reindeer and the native Sami who tend them, this large area of wild fells and snow-laden forests has a magnetic lure and provides the backdrop for our collection of winter breaks.
Exhilarating snow-based activities are offered, including snowmobiling, husky sledding and cross-country skiing, plus the chance to see the northern lights. You can even spend the night in a heated glass igloo, sleeping under the stars or on the lookout for the aurora whilst staying cosy and warm.
In contrast, the summer months bring the long days of the midnight sun allowing more time to explore and experience Finland’s abundant nature. Hike forest trails and take to the water in a canoe or experience the thrill of quad biking through the wilderness. In eastern Finland, brown bears can be seen in the taiga forests of Kuhmo together with other magnificent but elusive animals – wolverine and lynx.
The Finnish Experience
Log cabins and saunas form an intrinsic part of the Finnish experience, particularly in winter and feature prominently in our holiday itineraries. The cabins we feature are built to a high standard and come in a variety of designs, for anything up to 6 persons, with kitchenette, dining facilities, lounge area and, of course, private sauna.
The sauna in Finland is a way of life and they are as common in homes as having your own bathroom. To take a rejuvenating sauna after a day out in the crisp winter air is a habit to which you can soon become accustomed. Whilst traditionalists prefer wood or smoke saunas, the saunas in our cabins are electric which means they are easy to switch on and regulate the temperature. Ask our Finland specialists about fully-inclusive log cabin holidays for the ultimate Finnish Lapland experience including exhilarating winter activities.

Great service and location
Great location and the staff both in the hotel and taking the trips are really friendly and knowledgeable. Stayed in an Aurora cabin, which had it's own private sauna and tea and coffee facilities, and was so quiet!

Our holiday exceeded our expectations - travel company knowledgable, documents arrived on time - holiday went to plan. The hotel and activities were as advertised and we witnessed the aurora so they were even able to organise the weather!

Lameez was amazing from start to finish of organising our trip to Finland and while we were away we needed to book extra leg room seats for the flight home. Her knowledge on the resort & all the trips was spot on. Couldn’t ask for more!
