Lapland Holidays

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 indigenous Sami people, numbering around 60,000, inhabit the region. Reindeer herding is still deeply entwined in their culture while the Sami calendar recognises eight seasons a year due to the ever-changing patterns of nature. Experiencing the heritage and customs of the Sami is one of the highlights of a trip here.

Lapland tingles with the prospect of truly extraordinary year round holidays. Imagine a winter holiday searching for the northern lights, exploring by husky sled and staying in a cosy log cabin. During summer, the Land of the Midnight Sun is perfect for a self-drive holiday through the pristine wilderness.

Planning a trip to Lapland

Lapland’s prime position in the auroral oval means it’s one of the top places in the world to see the aurora borealis during the winter months. Our northern lights holidays take you to the very best properties, many of which go the extra mile to boost your chances of a sighting. Stay in characterful accommodation including tree houses, log cabins, country ranches, stylish hotels as well as the world-famous Icehotel. Furthermore, Lapland’s snow-clad forests and frozen lakes are the perfect setting for thrilling activities such as snowmobiling, moose safari and ice sculpting. And when you’re not mushing huskies or strapping on snowshoes, there’s always time for an indulgent sauna.

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