Itinerary

Your 3 night Festive Lights break begins with a departure from your chosen UK airport flying into Enontekio Airport in Northern Finland. From here your 1 hour coach transfer will take you to your accommodation across the Finnish border into the Swedish side of the village of Karesuando. You will be staying at the comfortable Davvi Arctic Star Hotel on a full board basis and for those staying over Christmas or New Year this will include a festive Christmas or New Year’s Eve dinner.

Due to the extended nature of the excursions, your itinerary will be given to you upon arrival. There may be one day when you undertake two of the included activities and your itinerary will be planned to accommodate the local weather conditions. During your welcome meeting, which will be held on arrival at your accommodation, your guide will give you all the information you need to get the best from your Lapland break and will also offer a list of optional excursions you can add to tailor-make your perfect stay. You can add optional excursions to your trip at any time during your stay, however these are subject to availability

Your itinerary will include:

A Northern Lights Snowmobile Safari
This 2 hour evening excursion heads out into the snowy wilderness to a vantage point in the hope of spotting some northern lights activity (the appearance of northern lights is based on the correct atmospheric conditions and solar activity which cannot be guaranteed). Two adults share a snowmobile taking turns to drive. The trip includes a short break and a hot drink.

A Call of the Wild Husky Safari
This one hour fast paced excursion provides an unforgettable journey into the wilderness on a sled pulled by your own team of huskies. Two adults share the sled and take a turn to steer the dogs. The trip includes a short break and a hot drink.

Reindeer Camp
A 2 hour excursion where you can learn about herding and lassoing reindeer from authentic reindeer farmers. You will then climb into your own sleigh and venture not the snowy countryside for a reindeer safari. The trip includes a short break and a hot drink.

This break is also available as a 4 night option departing from Belfast, Birmingham, Leeds Bradford.

Please note: For operational reasons, itineraries may vary.

Arctic Ice Fishing and Snowmobile
Travelling by snowmobile, you arrive at a frozen lake where you can try your hand at traditional ice fishing - you just drill a hole in the ice and lower your baited hook into the icy waters below. *All Snowmobile activities carry a €980 damage deposit which is payable locally. A valid driving license must be shown upon arrival.
£100 per adult

Arctic Northern Lights Husky Safari
Take a magical evening safari on a sledge pulled by a team of dogs. You will travel across frozen lakes and through silent forests and hopefully you will glimpse the beautiful Northern Lights evolving overhead (of course, sightings cannot be guaranteed).
£120 per adult

Igloo Interlude

Not many people can say they have spent the night in an igloo, in the heart of the Arctic wilderness. But that is the extraordinary experience you can enjoy (or brave!) during your Arctic Spirit break. Inside, the igloo is surprisingly warm and cosy. The ice bed has a snow surround, covered with warm reindeer hides. We will provide you with an Arctic sleeping bag. Candlelight lends the whole experience a romantic and special atmosphere. And don’t worry, there is the back-up of a warm room, just in case you feel the chill!

£120 per adult

Davvi Arctic Star Hotel

Situated on the outskirts of Swedish Karesuando, the Davvi Arctic Star is a traditional and friendly hotel offering superb views over both the majestic Muonio River and the Kaarevaara fell. Here, you are well placed to explore Karesuando on foot, dropping in at Sweden’s most northerly church, paying a visit to the local museum and regularly crossing the Finnish-Swedish border.
