Holiday Idea

Discover some of the key sights and sauna experiences in Finland’s easy-going capital Helsinki, before flying high above the Arctic Circle to stay in a glass-roof Aurora Cabin at the stunning Aurora Village, deep in the heart of Finnish Lapland. Meet resident reindeer, mush your very own team of huskies and keep a lookout for the northern lights swirling overhead, before returning back to the UK feeling relaxed, refreshed, and revitalised.

Day 3 | Reindeer Feeding & Snowmobile Safari

After breakfast, you’ll be given a bag of lichen and the friendly resident reindeer will come up close to feed out of your hand before you enjoy a short reindeer sleigh ride. Once breakfast is over for you and the reindeer, you will enjoy a snowmobile safari into the Lappish wilderness. Return to Aurora Village to relax and dine in the evening.

Day 4 | Dog Sledding & Sauna Relaxation

Today, head out into the wilderness on a sleigh pulled by energetic huskies! Ride in pairs with one person sitting in the sleigh and the other mushing. Enjoy lunch in the wilderness and learn about huskies from your guide, a professional musher. Later swap places, so both get to try mushing hands-on. The sauna and Jacuzzi will be ready for your private use upon your return before dinner in evening.

Day 5 | Departure Day

Bid farewell to Finnish Lapland and transfer to the airport for your departure flight.
