January, March 2019 Lapland Short Break, Sun-Thu

January, March 2019 Lapland Short Break, Sun-Thu

Northern lights break in the northernmost Finland with the best winter activities: an ice-fishing tour on lake Inari by snowmobile sleigh, a snowshoeing or cross-country skiing tour and a husky safari.

Inari  is the centre of Sámi culture. This is, where the Sámi museum Siida as well as the Sámi parliament are located. We'll start our tour from the Sámi museum to get an overview first, taste some local delicacies at the Aanaar restaurant and take an ice-fishing tour on lake Inari with a local, indgenous Sámi fisherman Jarmo. We'll see the holy island of Ukko on our way.

Glass igloo or panorama log cabin night  is an experience of a lifetime if we are lucky and auroras are dancing on the northern sky.  

Activities in Inari: 

  1. Visit to Sámi museum Siida  
  2. Ice-fishing in sleighs pulled by snowmobiles (with sandwich & fish)

Wilderness boutique hotel for adults  is the right place to experience,what silence means. After a nice snowshoeing tour and lunch you can spend time by reading a book i the cozy guest lounge or just site by the fireplace. It feels like time would have stopped,  

Activities: 

  1. Snowshoeing tour 3h + lunch at the hotel
  2. Campfire night 
  3. Husky safari (with lunch) 

Please note! If you wish to get driving a snowmobile yourself, you have two options. You can choose an ice-fishing tour by snowmobile, a 4h snowmobiling or replace the campfire in the wilderness hotel by an aurora snowmobiling tour.
