Finnish Lapland holidays

Finnish Lapland is so unique each season, you could visit several times a year and have a different experience each time.

Having done many huskey trips before I can say that it was the best dog sled holiday I've ever had. (more)Mark Waddock

Fabulous trip. Enjoyed the whole thing. Good home cooked food, comfortable accommodation, friendly & knowledgeable guide and good company during the evenings. We had several sightings of the aurora, which was an added bonus. (more)Sue Hodges
Overall the best experience ever and would look at having more winter holidays now than summer :-) (more)Elizabeth Watson
It was a fantastic experience and one of the best holidays we have ever had. We thought it would be a once in a lifetime holiday, but are already talking of going back to do the 2 day husky trail (more)Rowena Schofield

Log cabin holiday in Finland, with activities
The most memorable parts were the Food, the Huskies, the snowmobile trip. (more)John Rawstrone
Very memorable and would not hesitate to visit again, given the time and opportunity. Exciting part was the Snow Shoe walk at night in the Woods with an experienced guide imparting knowledge about the fauna and wildlife. (more)Tan Juliana
We had a fabulous trip and so many new experiences, it's hard to choose but I would say our snowmobile and husky safaris were the absolute highlights. Then our stay in a log cabin was fantastic and just being in the arctic landscape was breathtaking. (more)Hilary Viana
From £1095 - £1245 including UK flights
Northern lights short break, Finland
The most memorable part of the holiday was husky sledging...Daughter said, "best holiday ever". (more)Alison Ferguson
When the skies opened up on our final night, it was like a big bow on top of a really special present. Amazing!...This was an amazing adventure. I would really recommend participating in all the activities as they provided me with an enthusiastic adventure each and every day. (more)Rene Ostapuk
I didn't see the Northern Lights, like for most people was my dream BUT I did have a fab time and will always remember the wonderful views/experiences. Don't expect to see them just think that you will still have that experience to look forward to. (more)Tricia Callaghan
From £1225 including UK flights
Finnish Lapland activity holiday
I enjoyed all of it...Very good. (more)Vicki May
The most memorable thing was the place itself - the quietness. Luosto is so very quiet. (more)Anne Sciortino
Very good...The best parts were the beautiful pristine snow & the northern lights. (more)Elizabeth Bailey
From £1645 including UK flights
Husky safari in Finland
The most memorable part of the holiday was not just one thing, but many memories of which - flying down hill trying to control my sledge and not fall off, making snow angels before going back into the sauna, lunch on an open fire on a frozen lake, the views, the noise of the dogs as we got ready in the morning to leave. (more)Kathryn Haw
An unforgettable experience...Riding on husky driven sledges through a winter wonderland was the most memorable part. (more)kate Pottinger
Great...Going through the woods with the sled was the most exciting part. (more)Soli Hillel
From £1895 including UK flights
Lapland family winter adventure holiday
Riding the snow mobiles over the most beautiful landscape in Nellim and experiencing the true culture of Finnish Lapland has to be the best, but there were so many things that we loved...other included tours that we did like the husky safari, cross country skiing, snow shoe walking... (more)Brenda Foster
The husky sledding was the most interactive and therefore enjoyable day...We had a very happy and relaxing time. The local activities (Haariniva) guide Jaako was a particularly motivated, able, caring, patient and sensible guy. The hotel facilities and staff were very good. (more)Alastair Deery
The holiday was, quite simply, fantastic and it is difficult to pick "best bits". For me it was simply being outdoors in a very different environment. (more)Elizabeth Johnston
From £1695 including UK flights
Father Christmas and New Year holidays in Finland
Being in an environment which was so different to our everyday environment was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Kate O Reilly
Most memorable? Being out in beautiful natural surroundings, untouched, serene. It felt exciting to be so far up north...Excellent. (more)Antonia Cornaro
It was great to see wild reindeer wandering so close by in their own habitat and to see the respect of the local guides for the countryside, wildlife and local people. (more)Karen Horridge
From £1795 including UK flights
Northern Lights holiday, Finnish Lapland
Really fantastic. Extremely memorable and has really whetted my appetite to explore more of this fascinating region - both at this time of year, and in summertime too. (more)Hannah Smith
In one word: FANTASTIC. We were able to engage in such delightful winter activities which we had never done before. Weather was perfect, everyone at the hotel just as pleasant and accommodating as could be, food VERY good and special meals were prepared for me as I am a vegetarian. I would like nothing better than to go back for another visit. (more)Inge David
The most exciting part was being propulsed to a different world for the space of 3 days!...A great great experience. (more)Daniele Bourdais
From £595 - £710 excluding flights
Autumn Northern Lights holiday in Finland
It was fantastic, a trip of a life time...being able to watch the Northern Lights and the views across the fjord from our fisherman's hut were the most memorable parts. (more)Josephine Boorman

From £715 excluding flights
Lapland winter adventure holiday
It was excellent - far better than I had hoped for. This was a memorable holiday from beginning to end. Lots of winter activities that we took part in, with help and encouragement from an excellent guide. Saw the northern lights on two occasions. (more)Jane Beauchamp
The husky sledging was amazing and we also got to see the northern lights we did something nearly everyday and enjoyed every minute, went to the ice hotel you can't really explain in words how pretty the scenery is you have to go and see it to believe it. (more)Karen Waller
Driving a snowmobile was most memorable - 80 km journey to visit the Lainio Snow Village. Quite an exciting ride!Very good. I need to do another trip to see Northern Lights a bit better though! (more)Lucy Thomson
From £1695 including UK flights

Family multi activity week in Finland
We all agreed that the husky safari was the best part of the trip. The kids enjoyed cuddling the dogs very much; they were the friendliest bunch of dogs ever seen. (more)Leontine Mastenbroek
The most memorable feature of the holiday - to the average city-dwelling Brit - was the landscape. Forests and frozen lakes, big skies and 18-hours of daylight - our girls were convinced they were in Narnia (the thaw suggesting Aslan would arrive soon). (more)Anon
The best part of the holiday was the husky safari, followed by the snow mobiling. The walk on the first day was good - but we would have liked to have done more/gone a bit further. (more)Liz Gregory
From £1495 - £1645 including UK flights
Winter holiday in Finnish Lapland
Very good. Jeris resort is quiet away from crowds, good resting place after long active days. Good overall package, good food quality and quantity. Friendly staff. You need to help with feeding dogs and collect firewood, but wilderness cabin is a great experience. Open fires warm it up, is cosy. (more)Peter Varnes
Excellent! We managed to pack in a taster of most activities during our 4 day stay and found time to explore on our own too. Jeris Hotel where we stayed is friendly, comfortable, welcoming and is in the most beautiful setting on the lakeside. (more)Janet Anderson
A good all-round winter activity experience; value-for-money. (more)Carolyn Neville
From £845 - £1050 including UK flights
Winter adventure in Finland
Every day was an adventure, so difficult to single one experience out really, but I'll go for the husky sledding. We expected someone else to be driving - controlling the dogs yourself (though I use the word "control" in the loosest sense) was utterly exhilarating. The accommodation and surroundings were fabulous too. (more)Jonathan Green
Excellent experience, good taster of the best that Lapland has to offer. Beautifully snowy countryside and not as cold as I expected. Most memorable was overnight husky safari, getting to bond with your team of dogs. Then running out in our pyjamas to watch the northern lights! (more)Amanda Newnham
The two day husky safari was the most memorable part... A great variety of activities to wet your appetite. (more)Ian Wilkinson
From £1795 including UK flights
Lapland Northern Lights holiday
Memorable parts? I went on this trip hoping to see the Northern Lights. We did not see them on this trip, but I enjoyed the trip so much, I would happily return, lights or no lights. Some memories: watching the beauty of a light snow falling on pine trees from the dining room while enjoying a lunch of homemade soup and bread (I don't see much snow where I live), traveling through the woods on a sledge pulled by snowmobiles while covered with blankets , a very good talk about the Northern...

“So what's your stance on the environmental impact of tourists driving snowmobiles Timmo?” The question was asked by a British journalist at midnight whilst sitting in a traditional Lappish kota or teepee on top of Olos Fell in North West Finnish Lapland. I've always felt quite privileged to have been there to hear the answer because it highlighted just how important tourism has become in remote corners of the globe. The question itself was probably slightly leading as Timmo was our 55 year old guide on a two hour night time snowmobile safari. His response was impassioned to say the least and provides a lesson for us all I think. I don't recall his exact words but I'll do my best to paraphrase. “Without the snowmobile we wouldn't have a tourism industry. Huskies need feeding and attention for 12 months of the year. Reindeer need feeding and attention for 12 months of the year. Snowmobiles need feeding and attention for 5 months of the year. There is no money in huskies and reindeer, the only money is from snowmobiles.” Read more about Finnish Lapland in this Finnish Lapland article.
