Your Simply Arctic break begins with a departure from your chosen UK airport, flying into Enontekio Airport in northern Finland. From here your 1-1¼ hour coach transfer will take you to your chosen accommodation in Finnish or Swedish Karesuando, separated only by the natural border of the Muonio River.

This break offers the perfect opportunity for you to do as much or as little as you like, while based in one of the most picturesque regions of Finland, and one of the finest locations for viewing the northern lights.

Choose from 10 optional excursions allowing you to create your experience of the Arctic on your terms.

Simply Arctic is also available as a 3 night break departing from Birmingham, Bristol, London Gatwick, Manchester, Newcastle and Norwich and a 4 night break departing from Cardiff, Doncaster-Sheffield, Exeter, Humberside, Leeds Bradford and London Gatwick.

Icebreaker Day
This exciting new excursion gives you the opportunity to sail - and swim! - through the frozen bay of Bothnia. Having crunched the ice in its path, the ice breaker ship halts, allowing you time to don a dry suit and float in the Arctic sea.


One day

Fell Viewpoint Snowmobile Safari
A snowmobile tour to a breathtaking vantage point on one of the local fells, with far-reaching views. Based on two adults sharing a snowmobile. **


2.5 Hours

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!



Cross-Country Ski School and Tour
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. You will receive ample tuition before trying a short skiing trip. It's not as complicated as it looks and great fun too. Guiding and equipment included. On completion of this tour, Ski hire is available for £20 per person.


2 Hours

Sámi Museum and Snow Castle
The small Sámi museum at Hetta (about 50mins drive) provides a fascinating insight into the culture and traditions of the Sámi people. The ice castle, reconstructed every year, features a number of rooms with ornate ice carvings.



Ice Fishing by Snowmobile
This is a great trip for all the family. Travelling by snowmobile along a small stretch of the 200km Victoria Route, inaugurated by Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, you arrive at a frozen lake where you can try traditional ice-fishing. Once you have drilled a hole in the ice, you may even catch your lunch. **


2 Hours

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, this cannot be guaranteed).


2 Hours

Ice Hotel
Enjoy a visit to the world-famous Ice Hotel, a building carved entirely from the ice of the nearby River Torne. Here you can marvel at the chiselled, chilly interior, handcrafted anew each winter.


Half Day

Wilderness Romance
The ultimate experience for true romantics. Your night-time snowmobile ride will take you to your private kota (Sami tent), where a warming fire will await. The champagne is on ice, and the chocolate fondue is ready to enjoy as the Arctic night unfolds around you…
