Discover Lapland on this new Adventure Holiday

Want to try your hand at lassoing a reindeer? How about taking a snowmobile journey in search of the Northern Lights or snowshoeing in the beautiful Arctic Taiga Forest? All of this is possible on a Finnish Lapland Adventure Holiday, with prices from £1769 per person.

Based in Kakslauttanen, the 4 night activity break is suitable for all the family, with price reductions for children under the age of 14.

Accommodation is the beautiful 
Muotkan Maja Wilderness Lodge bordering Finland’s Urho K Kekkonen National Park. The remoteness of its location means there is little light pollution, making it the perfect base to hopefully see the Northern Lights. What’s more, the tour is designed to maximise the chance of a sighting with a number of dedicated nighttime excursions in search of the Aurora.

Other highlights include husky sledding and a full day snowmobiling onto the fells, providing the opportunity to admire the lodge’s spectacular surroundings. The area is home to an impressive collection of wildlife, including bears, wolverines and golden eagles as well as thousands of grazing reindeer owned and herded by the local Sami population.

Prices start from £1777pp (based on two sharing)
  • Flights from London Heathrow via Copenhagen
  • Transfers
  • Accommodation on a full board basis
