Itinerary

Recommended for:
Activity adventure | Honeymoon | Natural world | Northern Lights | Short break | Unique & unusual | Winter

Finland has more of the white stuff than just about anywhere in Europe, which makes it perfect for snowbound activities. Here is your chance to drive a snowmobile, a husky team or a reindeer sleigh, strap on a pair of snowshoes, explore the 180-kilometre Saariselka ski trail or hunt for the Northern Lights. Split your nights between a romantic log cabin and a snow or glass igloo.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Arrival

Fly with Finnair to Ivalo via Helsinki and transfer to Hotel Kakslauttanen. The log cabins at the hotel are sufficiently far apart to offer complete peace and privacy and boast their own fireplace, kitchenette and private sauna. We’ve incorporated a night in one of their futuristic glass igloo’s, where from November to late March you’ve a chance of admiring the Northern Lights through a glass ceiling without enduring the freezing temperatures. Enjoy dinner at the hotel’s restaurant.

Stay: Hotel Kakslauttanen

Dinner included

Days 2-3
Optional excursions

Our expert consultants can help you book optional excursions in advance, so you can make the most of your winter escape. Among the many options available, guests can learn how to drive a reindeer sleigh, speed off on a snowmobile or trek through the snow-laden forest in a pair of snowshoes.

Stay: Hotel Kakslauttanen

Breakfast & dinner included

Day 4
Glass Igloo

After another day exploring the snowy landscapes or relaxing in the world’s largest smoke sauna – also found at the hotel – you’ll retire for a night in a glass igloo, heated at a steady 20 degrees and complete with private WC and luxury beds.

Stay: Hotel Kakslauttanen (Glass Igloo)

Breakfast & dinner included

Day 5

After warming in the sauna and a hearty breakfast, transfer to the airport for your flight home via Helsinki.
