Ice Activities in Lapland


There are so many fun things to do whilst on holiday in Lapland, whether you are staying as a group of friends or as a family with children of all ages. From giving show-shoeing a try so you can view the wilderness around you or perhaps a race around the course in an ice-karting competition. There is no doubt you will have a full and exhilarating week.

What’s included in a Snowshoeing excursion: 

Take a gentle guided snow-shoe walk, immersing yourself in the stunning Arctic Circle scenery. Breathe in the fresh air as you reach some spectacular and untouched beauty spots. On your well deserved break you will take a seat ready for hot drinks and interesting stories about the night sky, Northern Lights and the Lappish culture.

Choose to take a daytime trip or an evening walk, searching for the magical show of the Northern Lights.


What’s included in an Ice Karting activity excursion: 

Get competitive and race your friends and family in this exciting ice-karting event, take your turn at rallying around the course and see who is your speediest team member. Ice-karts are easy to drive and similar to Go-Karts but on a snow-packed track.

This exciting event from Levi and Yllas includes driving instructions, helmets, thermal suits, boots and gloves. With warm up laps, heats and a final with prizes, you will be the Lewis Hamilton of the ice-karting world in no time.


What’s included in the Ice Hotel & Bar excursion: 

The clever lighting of the snow, ice-sculptures and wall-carvings, and the way the lights glow through the solid ice 'furniture' creates a mystical feel to the Lainio Snow Hotel & Bar.

Each winter it takes over 27,000 cubic metres of snow, chunks of river-ice up to a metre thick and weighing up to 3 tonnes, and a team of 50 people working flat out for 350 hours, to create its impressive 4,500 square metres of this hotel. Beautiful carvings decorate the rooms, courtyards, ice bar, restaurant and Ice Chapel.

From Levi and Ylläs you can choose

  • A day visit which includes a tour around the ice hotel & bar and a trip into the Ice Village where you can see ice sculptures and decorated snow suites on show.
  • Spend the night in one of the beautiful ice rooms or suites. Staying overnight you will be equipped with Arctic sleeping bags, a wake-up call with a hot berry juice and buffet breakfast in the warm log restaurant.

*Overnight stays in the Lainio Hotel usually begin from Christmas onwards.
