Finnish Lapland is famous for its family-friendly winter holidays. But the region isn’t just for kids. If you’d like to experience the wild and peaceful side of Finnish Lapland and escape the Santa trail, there are some fabulous boutique lodges on offer for adults only. Their focus is on warm and inviting hospitality, great food and access to the abundance of wilderness on their doorsteps. Many combine downhill skiing by day with Northern Lights searches by night. Here are our top five Finnish Lodges - perfect for an adult-only short break.

Javri Lodge

Once a presidential bolthole, Javri welcomes discerning guests looking for luxury and relaxation. The Lodge has set a precedent for its high end service and fine dining. Coupled with its access to forest trails, dog-sledding snow mobiling, Javri is quickly becoming a go-to destination for upscale holidays in Finnish Lapland. The swimming pool and saunas are a perfect way to end active days enjoying deep snow and Arctic adventures. Read more about this holiday.

Beana Laponia

Rovaniemi is best known for being home to Santa Village, but that’s not the only reason to touch down at Rovaniemi airport. Escape the crowds and head for the wilderness to Beana Laponia where the comfort of a boutique lodge awaits. Their hallmark of quality must certainly be their small group dog-sledding tours which give adult-only guests a thrilling and authentic experience of dog mushing with a professional guide. Tours can be by day, evening or overnight. Combined with a little luxury in the hotel, Beana Laponia has a weekend getaway covered. Read more about this holiday.

Nangu Wilderness Lodge 

The latest addition to the Nellim collection, Nangu Wilderness Lodge is their adults-only hotel. The lodge sits at the edge of Lake Inari benefiting from its peaceful location and endless Arctic adventures. The lodge is built with a traditional log cabin feel with modern Nordic interiors. Lappish cuisine is served in the hotel’s restaurant for an authentic flavour of the region. Its proximity to Ivalo Airport (a 20 minute drive) is a real plus for this new boutique retreat.

Northern Lights Ranch / Olokoto Cabins

Not strictly an adults-only resort, but one which offers couples seclusion and privacy in the newly built Olokoto Cabins. These compact pods for two have glass ceilings and walls - perfect for Northern Lights viewing and star gazing by night. Excellent cuisine combined with Finland’s best ski resort at Levi combine to make a great adult-only getaway. The break can be tailored with snow mobile tours, dog-sledding expeditions, downhill skiing and wilderness adventures. Read more about this holiday.
