Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » UK/Inari

    Flying out to the depths of Finnish Lapland, an included shared transfer will see you to your delightful accommodation – a choice of a traditional log cabin or contemporary Arctic chalet, depending on availability. You’ll settle in by the fire to enjoy the cosiness of it all, along with wonderful wilderness views and that all-important Finnish sauna. You’ll also begin your menu of full-board dining with dinner at the restaurant, enjoying hearty regional favourites informed by local produce. As with each night, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the Northern Lights, making use of your complimentary Arctic-thermal clothing.

    Stay: Wilderness Hotel Inari

    Meals: Dinner

  • Day 2 » Reindeer farm, snowmobiling & Father Christmas

    After breakfast, it’s time to start your programme of included touring with a visit to a nearby reindeer farm. Here, you’ll meet the herders (and the adorable creatures themselves) to learn about the local Samí culture and try your hand at throwing a lasso. Then, after lunch, it’s time to try snowmobiling. This family friendly snowmobile session is ideal for those who have not tried snowmobiling before. After familiarising yourself with the controls, you will head out into the snowclad surrounds with the children being pulled on a sled behind the guide. Then it is time for your private family meeting with Santa. Located in the grounds of the resort, the man himself will welcome you for a private meeting with presents and plenty of festive cheer.

  • Day 3 » Husky sledding, winter fun & aurora hunt

    Today begins with a husky safari through the surrounding Lapland remotes. After meeting the oh-so-excitable dogs, you’ll be taught how to handle the sled before mushing out into the countryside (again children are pulled in a sled behind your qualified guide) Then, after lunch, you’ll have some free time to enjoy the wintery fun, making use of the toboggans, kick sleds scattered around the hotel and a simple craft workshop. This evening is then given over to a special aurora hunt. With the children wearing an elf hat and cape, you and your family will be brought out along a candlelit path into the forest, searching for the aurora. It all finishes around a campfire, toasting marshmallows and with any luck the Northern Lights overhead.
