Days 2-3:

On our 3 night break the following activities are included. You will receive safety information and instructions on how to use any equipment by an English speaking guide.

Explore Snowmobiling

After an introductory lesson, you’ll join a snowmobile excursion taking you through the untouched wilderness on the snowy trails surrounding the hotel. Driving in pairs, stops are made on route allowing you to swap drivers, take photos and enjoy the winter scenes. A lunch stop is made to warm up by the open fire with hot drinks and a snack before returning to the lodge.

Husky Safari

A short transfer takes you to the husky kennels where you’ll find a pack of excitable husky dogs waiting to take you out on a dog sledding adventure. You will be shown how to handle your own sled before heading out in pairs, one mushing the team and one as a passenger, each taking turns to drive the dog sled through the beautiful winter scenery. Enjoy the moment as the dogs fall silent once on the trail allowing for nature’s silence to take over.

Days 2-3:

Meet the Reindeer

You will get the chance to meet a reindeer herder and his reindeer, learning all about the Sámi culture and life of a herder in the Arctic region. You will be able to get close to these amazing animals, some may even feed out of your hand!

Gentle Snowshoeing

Clip on the snowshoes and head out on the crisp snow into the winter wilderness, enjoying a more relaxed way to experience the beautiful landscape. Along the way, the guide will share stories about Finnish nature and wildlife.

Private Aurora Sledge Safari
