Lapland has some fantastic luxury accommodation, from beautiful log-cabins and secluded villas nestled in the forest, to boutique hotels with excellent restaurants, from high standard hotels in the heart of the action to ski-in/ski-out apartments.
If you are a lover of food then Finnish Lapland has some hidden gems, passionate chefs and restaurant owners with feasts that range from the simple traditional dish, to the highest standards of cuisine, all using local, high quality ingredients, offering you the tastes of the Arctic forests and lakes.
Want to be able to tell your friends something special? How about your ski holiday inside the Arctic Circle? Quiet slopes, excellent and reliable snow conditions, few lift queues, a very high standard of relaxed and supportive tuition and excellent equipment are all key benefits of skiing in Finland. For snowboarders there are superb parks with a variety of lines depending upon your bravery level!
Activities that allow you to explore the beautiful environment that surrounds you is one of the best things about Lapland. Driving your own team of dogs through the snowy wilderness, or stopping during an evening snowmobile trip in the forest to turn off the engines and the lights to lie on the snow and take in the majesty of a huge sky filled with stars and perhaps even the aurora. An evening snowshoe walk with a guide to hear about the night sky and some of the hidden history of the wilderness, or an intimate visit to a reindeer herders cottage to learn more of the fascinating culture and history of the people and animals so inextricably linked together. A private dinner with Santa and Mrs Clause and even a visit to your cabin by the man himself.
Most of all Lapland offers a relaxing holiday which is revolutionary in terms of most winter holidays. Almost every accommodation has its own sauna (a national past-time in Finland) and with the wilderness being all around you, the lack of crowds means that a holiday in Lapland is one to remember.
