Description of Your own group winter activity holiday

With an itinerary carefully crafted to maximise your stay in Finnish Lapland, this exciting trip is ideal for those with not much time but ambitious plans. You’ll be based in a small community of cottages, nestled into woodland on the shore of picturesque Lake Jerisjärvi. As for your activities, they range from adrenaline packed excursions such as snowmobiling over an unspoilt wintery landscape, and mushing a team of huskies on an unforgettable safari, to cultural encounters with the indigenous Lapp people. You will visit a reindeer farm to meet the animals and their herders, learning of the significance of reindeer in this part of the world, and receive a traditional blessing from a Lapp shaman for good fortune in the future.

On the third day of the trip, the excitement doesn’t let up for a moment. Take part in an ‘Arctic Olympics’ challenge, where your group will be split into teams and compete in events such as ice fishing, cross country skiing, kick sledding and survival skills.

Naturally, the main focus of any winter holiday in Finnish Lapland is the Northern Lights, or the aurora borealis. Led by an expert aurora hunter and photographer, you’ll spend your final night in an amazing glass igloo, sleeping on reindeer skins, in a remote area that offers fantastic opportunities for witnessing the Northern Lights in all their glory.

All these activities may sound exhausting, so luckily there is some down time built into the itinerary to help you relax – maybe try a little snowshoeing or downhill skiing. Or, if you prefer something slightly less taxing, you can indulge in a traditional Finnish smoke sauna, followed by a shivery leap into an ice pool – this trip will get your heart racing one way or another!

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Your own group winter activity holiday

The common objective of North East Finland is to develop from a nationally well-known tourist resort into an internationally attractive outdoor tourist region.

Tourism is the most vital industry in the area and gives work to about 1000 people generating an annual total tourist income of over €104 million. Tourism has a positive impact both socially and economically on people living in these remote areas. Local authorities, tourism organisations and tourism providers all work together in various fields, continuously developing programmes which will ensure that tourism in the region is managed sensibly and impacts positively on local communities and the environment.

The philosophy in the region is to ensure that tourism providers use, to the greatest extent possible, local providers, be it for hotels, activities or employment and visitors are positively encouraged to try the locally produced food and drink. Also, we try to incorporate a learning experience into the trip whether it is in the form of a new skill or an insight into the culture and history of the area.

Where activities such as snowmobiling may have a minor impact on the environment, such pastimes are carefully managed and are part of everyday life in these parts. Trails are clearly defined and managed with tourists only allowed to drive snowmobiles under the close supervision of fully qualified instructors.

We adopt the same philosophy in this region, using locally or Finnish-owned hotels and activity partners based in the destination hence ensuring that the local community benefits.
