Dashing Through the Snow


Enjoy a short break in this remote village in the far north of Finland.

RESORT: Kilpisjarvi

Duration: 3 or 4 nights

Lapland's pace of life is a relaxed one, and nowhere more so than in Kilpisjarvi, the northernmost resort in Finnish Lapland, a land of glistening snowscapes and silent tundra.

Enchantment & wonder still abound in the shooting stars and the twirling Northern Lights that sometimes dance overhead. It's not surprising that Santa often frequents this area. Can you find him?

Kilpisjarvi is a set around a large frozen lake so it's a perfect setting for hosting the enticing winter activities included on this trip. The safaris are full-length safaris, not ‘taster sessions’, giving you the opportunity to enjoy longer trails and journeys on the experiences. Chances for playing in the snow are plentiful; zoom down the toboggan slope or challenge the family to a snowball fight!

The snowmobile safari across Lake Kilpis is a family favourite and offers a real chance to explore the pristine snowscapes at speed. Grown-ups share a snowmobile, swapping drivers part-way through the tour, and children are pulled by a sled following behind.

If you’re keen to make some four-legged friends whilst on holiday, then your team of eager huskies await. Sledding across a frozen lake and through the Arctic tundra is exhilarating, thrilling, and a ‘must-do’ – an ideal photo opportunity!

Of course, no visit to Lapland is complete without a visit to see the REAL Father Christmas in his homeland; you’ve travelled a long way to see him. But where is he? Hop on board a reindeer sleigh and be guided to his secret cabin. Is he there? Come in and find out…

This leisurely getaway offers the ultimate opportunity for you and your family to be fully immersed into the wonders of Lapland and spend quality time together, with a great chance of witnessing the Northern Lights*. It's the perfect family holiday, filled with a host of exhilarating winter activities that will live long in the memory.

* as the Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon, sightings are not guaranteed*
