A winter wonderland activity holiday adventure beneath the northern lights in Finland. Our base for this winter activity holiday lies close to the border between Finland and Russia and just a few kilometres south of the Arctic Circle, it is the heart of a pristine wilderness region of Finland amongst spruce forest, hills and marshes. Throughout the long winter months this area of Finland is completely snowbound accessible only by ski or sled. This is the perfect place to learn about the way of life of the hardy Finnish people, the traditional inhabitants of this beautiful and yet harsh environment. A comfortable hotel, complete with sauna and swimming pool, will keep hardship to a minimum for us. The holiday begins with an introduction of snowshoeing and a chance to explore the winder wonderland surrounding the hotel. The next 3 days are spent learning more about an alternative method of arctic transport as we spend the time with the beautiful local husky dogs. After an introductory day at a husky farm learning how to drive and care for the husky teams, we will have an exciting 2-day journey by dogsled, with an overnight wilderness experience in a forest lodge and the chance to do some ice-fishing. On return to the hotel we have an exciting snowmobile ‘safari'. This multi activity holiday also includes a full day to take advantage of optional extra activities such as downhill skiing starting from the hotel doorstep and the option to overnight in an igloo. With weekly departures from December to mid April no one should have to miss out on this sparkling adventure under the Northern Lights in the Arctic wilderness of Finland.
