Finnish Lapland Map

Finnish Lapland holidays

Finland’s most northerly province is enshrined in folklore and fairytale, with its residents – real and mythical – including the indigenous, snow-dwelling Sámi, lynx and wolves, and Father Christmas and his elves. European nature at its most raw, Lapland is the place to see the northern lights, track brown bears, ski across kilometres of unmarked snow and gaze at the northern lights.

Winter cottage holiday in Finnish Lapland
I have wanted to visit the Arctic for a long time and had high expectations, which were met in full. It was a wrench to leave at the end of the week and the first couple of days back home I was really missing the snow and ice, the hospitality, and the sheer fun of it - we seemed to spend all week laughing. (more)Irene Mitchell
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
From £1688 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

Lots of memorable moments, the Huskies, riding the Snowmobiles across the frozen lakes at speed!! And of course the fab aurora showing on our last night... (more)joe staton
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

Memorable parts? We loved all of it - the food, accommodation, tour guides and the northern lights were spectacular. The trip was very well organised and everything came together nicely. We travel a lot and this trip did not disappoint. Tips? Bring a hairdryer as there was not one in our room. We might have been able to borrow one - we didn't ask. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? Excellent (more)Penny Salmon

Husky safari in Finland
If you love dogs and don't mind roughing it then this is the holiday for you. The income provided to the local economy is the main income for the year. The footprint on the environment is minimal. (more)Ian Curley
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
From £1758 including UK flights

From £1495 including UK flights
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
Though not able to see any northern light, the only memorable night was the smoked salmon dinner. (more)HC Toh
From £1095 - £1245 including UK flights

From £1518 - £1658 including UK flights
Winter adventure in Finland
The husky tour is probably my favourite but I enjoyed the Northern Lights, the snowmobile, the snowshoeing, the cross country skiing, the ice hotel, the reindeer!! (more)Sharn Gill
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
From £1645 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...

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 £1658 including UK 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
A brilliant family holiday for us, lots of interesting and exciting things to do and see. (more)Russell Needham
From £795 excluding flights
Father Christmas holiday in Lapland
Memorable parts? 1. Walking through the forest to meet Santa. If you want a non-commercialised, fairy-tale Santa experience this is it. I believe!!! 2. Husky sledding - was truly amazing. Tips? 1. Make sure you leave plenty of time between landing in Helsinki and catching the connecting flight. 2. Spend that little bit extra buying the right clothing to enjoy the holiday rather than spend the week freezing outside. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Fantastic!... (more)Claire Millins
From €912 excluding 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 £1595 - £1745 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 £875 - £1100 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
