Weekend in Lapland: ice-fishing, skiing, reindeer and snowmobile safari

Weekend in Lapland: ice-fishing, skiing, reindeer and snowmobile safari

Three full activity days visiting two skiing resorts and Kemijarvi, where you arrive by night train from Helsinki and stay in a unique log hotel. Train, accommodation, full-pension and full program included.  A few days in Helsinki or Tampere can easily be added to this holiday package.

Three full days in Lapland:

You will travel comfortably by night train in your own sleeping cabin and arrive in Kemijärvi in the morning.

1. day: Kemijärvi  is a small and beautiful city located in south-eastern part of Lapland. At the same time it is the most northern town of Finland. After arrival you will be taken to your hotel in Uitonniemi, where you will accommondate either in the log hotel or in an apartment in another building. In the old times logs were transported via water and this place located on a cape was used as the office of the forest handling company. A breakfast basket will wait for you in your room.

After settling down your fishing guide Marko will come and take you for a fishing trip. You will return for lunch and then go for a skiing trip. Skiing equipment is included and skiing instruction is available when necessary.

2. day: Pyhä is a versatile skiing center offering a lot to do from quite challenging slopes to ice carting. It takes 40 minutes to drive here. Pyhä-Luosto is the oldest national park in Finland and the views are breath-taking.  In Pyhä you will drive through the snowy forest by a snow mobile lead by a guide. You can choose a longer 4-6h or a shorter 2,5h safari. Lunch is included in both. If you choose the shorter one, you will have time to go either downhill or cross-country skiing. Rental equipment is included.
 
3. day: Salla will celebrate its 50th year as a skiing center in 2015. It is located in the wilderness, in the middle of nowhere. There are snowy forests as long as you can see. In Salla you will see the nature from a sledge of a reindeer. There will be two people sharing one sledge and the safari takes either 5-6h (14-18km) or 3h (3,5km) depending on your selection in Pyhä. The longer safari includes a proper lunch, the shorter only a sausage and coffee or tea. Those, who select a short snow mobile safari, will get on a long reindeer safari and vice versa. Just like in Pyhä, those who take the short reindeer safari, will have a couple of hours time for skiing downhill or cross-country.
 
After three active days it is nice to enter the train again and travel comfortably back to Helsinki, where you will arrive next morning. Please note you do need to change train in Tampere both ways.
