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 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!

The Davvi Arctic Lodge is a great choice for cross country skiing. There are long wilderness trails, some groomed and illuminated, with one located next to the hotel.

On completion of this tour, Ski hire is available for £20 per person. ( Deposit payable)
