Staying at: Wilderness Hotel Inari

Days 2-4:

The next three days are spent enjoying the snowy wilderness by taking part in the following activities. All safety information and instructions on how to use the equipment are provided by an English speaking guide.

Snowmobile Adventure
After a short lesson on these impressive machines, you drive in pairs heading out on the trails snowmobiling through the white winter scenery surrounding Inari. During the trip stops are made to swap drivers and a lunch stop to warm up around an open fire.

Reindeer Farm Visit
You will transfer to a Reindeer farm nearby, where you will meet a Sami Reindeer herder and learn all about the life, history and culture of the Sami people. There will be a chance to meet the reindeer up close, even helping to feed them before returning to the hotel.

Husky Safari
A husky safari trip is definitely top of most peoples list of activities when visiting the Arctic. You are transferred to the local kennels and shown how to handle your own dog sled - the excitable dogs yapping with anticipation before you even start. Once you set off, the barking stops and the serene silence takes over as the dogs do what they love best, to run and run on the snowy trails. The sleds are based on two people sharing, one mushing and the other as a passenger, swapping places along the way.

Days 2-4:

Gentle Snowshoeing
Equipped with snowshoes you head out with the guide on a gentle walk in the surrounding wilderness, taking time to enjoy the peaceful setting, taking pictures and learning about Finnish nature.

Aurora Camp
The highlight of any trip to Lapland is witnessing the magical Northern Lights. It is never guaranteed, but away from light pollution this nighttime activity gives you a wonderful opportunity. You will be taken to a secluded camp by a snowmobile pulled sled and once there, enjoy time sitting around an open fire and waiting to see if the aurora makes an appearance.

Aurora Snowmobiling
Driving in pairs you venture out on an exhilarating snowmobile adventure in search of clear skies and the elusive aurora. If the northern lights make an appearance, you will stop and admire the show. A stop is also made to have hot drinks on route.

Day 5:

After breakfast you will take a transfer back to Ivalo Airport for your onward journey.

It is also possible to tailor-make your own personal trip. For example, why not upgrade to an Aurora Cabin on the first or last night of your trip for optimum aurora viewing potential. The additional price is £121 per person.


From £2,009 per person (excluding flights), based on 2 adults sharing an Inari Arctic Chalet for 4 nights, return transfers, full board starting with dinner on arrival day to breakfast on departure day, warm winter clothing and activities as detailed.

This roughly converts to: 2,310 EUR | 2,632 USD
