Ski holidays & resorts Lapland/Finland

Winter holidays above the Arctic Circle in Lapland for skiers & non-skiers

Lapland in winter is a magical experience, a scenic winter wonderland located deep inside the Arctic Circle and blanketed in snow from December to May. Imagine lying in a thermal glass igloo as the Northern Lights dance across a star-studded night sky, or mushing a husky-drawn sleigh across a frozen lake or along silent forest trails. This remote and untamed snowy wilderness rewards exploration via countless activities but you can be as active or relaxed as you want.

We offer 3 contrasting resorts, all located well north of the Arctic Circle at the optimum latitude for seeing the Northern Lights: Levi, Ylläs and Saariselkä. Each has a distinctly different character but all three are in stunningly beautiful wilderness areas.

A little message from Finbo who lives in Santa's snowy Lapland: Did you know that if you book a 7 night holiday to Lapland in December you can also visit Santa in his Hideaway? Simply pick up and purchase the 'Santa's Hideaway' excursion at the time of booking and the whole family can enjoy a private meeting with Santa, an afternoon of fun and games including creating Christmas decorations with the Elves and baking gingerbread! What's more every holiday to Lapland in December includes a farewell dinner with Santa and his reindeer - there's even a small gift and certificate for every child! For even more festive fun, why not indulge in a reindeer sleigh ride or dash through enchanting snow-laden forests on a snowmobile or husky safari! The perfect getaway for the festive season!
