Lapland Holidays

Lapland is one of Europe’s bucket list destinations. Mystical yet mesmerizing, exciting yet accessible, it’s got wanderlust stamped all over it. Our extensive collection of Lapland holidays takes you to the far north of Sweden, Finland and Norway – to Arctic Europe – and includes both summer and winter breaks, from weekend getaways to multi-centre touring.

Imagine a winter holiday searching for the northern lights, trying your hand at husky sledding or snowmobiling and staying in a cosy log cabin or wilderness lodge. During summer, the lure of a holiday to Lapland is just as strong. The Land of the Midnight Sun is perfect for a self-drive holiday revelling in the region’s pristine wilderness.

About Lapland

Covering the northern areas of Sweden, Finland, Norway and part of Russia’s Kola Peninsula, Lapland has no definitive border, but sprawls across a vast and beautiful mosaic of mountains, fells, forests, lakes and even coastline. The region tingles with the prospect of truly extraordinary holidays – summer or winter.

Lapland is inhabited by the indigenous Sami people, which today number around 60,000. Such is the ever-changing light and patterns of nature in Lapland that the Sami recognise eight – not four – seasons in a year. The Sami calendar also revolves around reindeer. Although few Sami live by the old nomadic ways, reindeer herding is still deeply entwined in their culture. Experiencing the heritage and customs of the Sami is one of the major highlights of trips to Lapland.

During winter, the snow-cloaked forests and frozen lakes also provide the perfect setting for activities as diverse as husky sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, reindeer sledding, moose safaris, ice sculpting and snowshoeing. Lapland enjoys a prime position in the so-called auroral oval, making it one of the best places in the world to search for the northern lights. We not only offer dedicated northern lights holidays, but we also handpick properties renowned for their aurora potential. This includes Beana Laponia Wilderness Hotel and Nangu Boutique Hotel offering Lapland holidays for adults.

When summer releases Lapland from its frozen grip, you can experience a rich landscape of fast-flowing rivers, sparkling lakes and aromatic pine forests; wildflowers bloom under the midnight sun, while endless hours of daylight can be filled with activities such as hiking, canoeing, wildlife watching or simply dawdling through breathtaking scenery on one of our summer self-drive holidays.

We saw the Northern Lights one evening, it was a good show. The lodge, the food, the staff, the log cabin and the activities were really great! Thank you for a wonderful, special holiday.
