Aurora Estate


Northern Lights Holiday at the Aurora Estate

At the shore of Ylläsjärvi Lake - frozen in winter - you'll spot the red exterior of the Aurora Estate standing out against the white of the snow. The mountainous backdrop hides Finland's largest ski resort, allowing guests to enjoy the boutique lodge's peaceful setting, yet be close enough to visit the slopes at Levi. Needless to say this holiday is perfect for combining downhill skiing with the chance to view the Aurora Borealis in this most perfect of winter landscapes. The stand out feature of the Aurora Estate is its restaurant which serves the highest level of Finnish cuisine served in an informal and welcoming atmosphere created by the lodge's two friendly owners. This holiday will be tailored to your choice of adventures blended seamlessly with relaxation time at the lodge's wood-fired sauna and outdoor hot tub. 




DAY 1:

Arrival to Kittila Airport where your driver will meet you to transfer you directly to your accommodation at the Aurora Estate. Settle into your room and enjoy a home-cooked evening meal before the chance to see if the Northern Lights will grace the night sky.

Staying at: Aurora Estate

DAY 2:

After breakfast, you'll have time to relax or join one of our optional excursions and activities. All of our breaks at the Aurora Estate can be tailored to your requirements.

Optional excursions:

Visit to the Snow Village - wander around the rooms of the ice hotel at the nearby Snow Village resort. Enjoy lunch or dinner in the ice restaurant.

Dog-sledding - Excitable husky dogs at the nearby husky farm are eager to take you on a sled safari in the wilderness. You’ll learn the basics of dog mushing during your safari.

Snow mobile safari - Choose between a daytime or evening safari. During the daytime, snowmobile through snowy forests and across frozen lakes. In the evening, enjoy the journey to a traditional Lappish hut where you'll be offered hot drinks and snacks around the open fire. You’ll hear stories about Lapland and the mystical Northern Lights – some facts, some fiction. If you’re lucky, the lights will come out to play.

Another day for excursions. Or perhaps you’ll spend some time relaxing in the hot tub and sauna which can be hired for a private session during your stay (supplementary cost).

DAY 4:

Not ready to leave? Why not extend your holiday in Finnish Lapland with a stay in a glass igloo or a room at the ice hotel at the Snow Village. The team at Magnetic North Travel will be pleased to tailor your vacation to your requirements.

Reindeer safari - The reindeer safari is a relaxing experience gliding through the magical winter forest pulled by your own reindeer. Before heading back to Snow Village you will be offered hot drinks while learning about reindeer herding. This trip is suitable for all ages.

Guided snow shoe safari - Snow shoeing is an easy way to enjoy nature. Your guide will show you how to use the snow shoes and during your walk you’ll try to spot animal tracks in the wilderness.

Snow mobile and ice-fishing safari - You’ll drive your snowmobile to a frozen lake where you’ll drill a hole and see if you can catch your lunch! Children travel by sleigh behind the guide’s snow mobile.
