Say goodbye to the year by enjoying an amazing adventure within the Arctic Circle. Spend 6 nights in the stunning Pyhä-Luosto National Park region where you will undertake a series of Arctic adventures that will take your breath away and open your eyes to the real magic of Lapland. From the stunning scenery so pristine after a snow shower to the dark starlit skies above, this amazing break will leave you with a lifetime of memories.

Your itinerary will be finalised upon your arrival in Lapland and will be arranged to ensure you achieve optimum enjoyment of your experiences which are listed below.

Snowshoe Hike – A 90 minute hike around the Pyhä and Luosto fells
Snowmobile Safari – An exciting 3-4 hour off-road excursion through the frozen countryside
Husky Safari – You will learn all about these amazing animals before taking control of your own sled for a 4km adventure
Reindeer safari – Visit these gentle animals before hopping aboard your own sleigh for a leisurely 2km ride through the snowy countryside
Tour of the amethyst Mine in Luosto – try mining for your own gems while you are there.

This is the perfect region to spot the northern lights and, if the atmospheric conditions are just right, nature will put on its most magnificent light show for you! For stargazers (seasoned or novice), the sky has never seemed darker, the stars never brighter and as for the Milky Way! Look up and let Laplands skies enchant you. 

Why not add in some optional extras (additional charges apply) to further compliment your itinerary?

Although we recommend this break for adults and older children it would be suitable for ages 5 and over.

Amethyst Mine Tour – 120 mins
Drive a snowmobile to the top of Lampivaara Peak, to visit Europe's only surviving Amethyst Mine, Non-drivers and children will travel in sleighs, behind the safari guides. Enjoy the magnificent views from the top of the fell (weather permitting) before embarking on a tour of the mine. The tour will include a special talk with fascinating facts about the history and geology of the Amethyst Mine. There is also the opportunity to mine for stones and should you find an amethyst – you can keep it -so long as it fits within the palm of your closed hand!

Guided Snow Shoe Hike – 90 mins
Before embarking on your exhilarating snow shoe hike, your guide will begin with some tips on how to manoeuvre on these odd shaped shoes. Then it's time to discover more of the Lappish countryside, feeling the soft snow beneath your feet as you walk and enjoy the tranquillity of this beautiful region. During the hike, stop for sausages and a hot beverage before returning to Luosto.

Snowmobile Safari – 50km
Experience a 50km safari around Luosto area. Prior to the safari you will receive instruction on the operation and safety of the vehicles, before heading out for a leisurely paced drive. Snowmobiles are suitable for 1 driver and 1 passenger and half-way through the safari you can swap roles with your partner. Older children may be permitted to ride as a passenger (subject to height restrictions, which will be advised locally by your guide). For those who are unable to drive a snowmobile, you can experience the safari as a passenger in a snowmobile drawn sleigh, behind one of the guides.

Reindeer Sleigh Ride – 2km
Enjoy a leisurely, yet romantic, reindeer sleigh ride through the forest, surrounded by trees laden with crisp snow. As the sleigh glides over prepared tracks, you'll truly appreciate the serenity of Lapland.

Husky Safari – 4km
What can be more iconic of Lapland than a traditional husky sleigh ride? Learn the art of husky mushing and drive a team of huskies through the forest, while your passenger experiences the thrill of the safari from the sleigh.
