This exciting winter holiday to Finnish Lapland combines four nights at Harriniva Hotel - a cosy pine-clad wilderness hotel that boasts saunas, outdoor jacuzzis and a working husky farm. It's a superb base for action-packed days exploring the snowy wilderness by husky sled and snowmobile while evenings bring the chance of watching the Northern Lights dancing in the skies overhead.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Arrive in Harriniva

Fly from London Heathrow or Manchester to Kittilä via Helsinki and transfer to the Harriniva Hotel in western Lapland, close to the Swedish border. As well as being built entirely from wood and stone, this cosy hotel – one of our favourites – offers traditional saunas and Jacuzzis in the great outdoors. There's also a large husky farm with more than 400 eager huskies just a stone's throw away. Check in for four nights and enjoy dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, which serves hearty Finnish delicacies as well as a range of international favourites.

Days 2-3
Husky safari & optional activities

After breakfast, meet with your guide and happy huskies for a two-hour safari along snowy forest trails, a highlight of any Lapland holiday. The afternoon is free for optional activities or relaxing in the sauna before dinner. The next day is left entirely up to you. Available activities include ice fishing, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, all showcasing the beauty of the surrounding wilderness.

Day 4
Snowmobile safari

Meet your snowmobile instructor at noon for a comprehensive run-through of driving and safety procedures before beginning your snowmobile safari through the forests, fells and frozen lakes of Finnish Lapland. It's easy to understand why they're the preferred mode of transport in this part of the world. (The safari is suitable for complete beginners, though a valid driving licence is required.) The afternoon is free for you to unwind at the hotel or for additional activities, such as a reindeer safari or snowshoe excursion.
