Activity Holidays in Lapland

“Everything about Lapland is so real and so pure. The nature around you is astounding and I don’t know anywhere else like it in the world.” These are the words of our local ambassador for Lapland adventures, Markku, when asked what he loves most about his country, and we couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

Lapland whether in the grip of a magical, snow-blanketed winter or in the midst of a softly lit, endless summer, is the ultimate natural destination. Bask in the fiery tongues of the majestic northern lights, take part in heart-melting husky encounters, or go spotting the native reindeer. An adventure in Lapland is exhilarating, engrossing and has a real sense of magic about it. After all, it’s the home of two of the most famous natural phenomena, the aurora borealis, and the midnight sun

Adventure is in the air in Lapland. Towering pine forests, dotted with idyllic, crystal blue lakes, stunning mountain scenery and dramatic fells offer some of the world’s best hiking, biking, kayaking and canoeing. And one of the very best things about this natural utopia, you feel genuinely isolated, off the beaten track, and in true wilderness. As Markku puts it, “It’s so amazing because when you’re out in nature here, you can travel 100km and not see another soul.”

And that’s just the way we like it.

Best Time to Visit Lapland

Although it’s renowned for being a winter wonderland, there are plenty of reasons you might want to visit Lapland outside of the snowy high season.

As one of the last true wildernesses in Europe, it’s an incredible natural landscape that offers outdoor adventures at any time of year.

Visiting Lapland in Spring

April – May:

As April rolls into May, the rivers and lakes crack and unfreeze, and Lapland is opened up to hikers, climbers, mountain bikers, you name it. Go bear spotting, hike the rugged countryside, or take a canoe out onto an idyllic, peaceful lake.

Visiting Lapland in Summer

June – August:

The magic of the midnight sun, to many people, is just as compelling as the allure of the Northern Lights. Experiencing the endless days of a Lapland summer is a surreal, enchanting time, as you relax by a serenely quiet lake and soak in the rays of the perpetual sunlight.

Visiting Lapland in Autumn

September – October:

Autumn in Lapland is a time of year when the snow has still held off just enough so that you can still head out hiking or kayaking, but also provides a window when you can combine these experiences with nights dark enough to see the Northern Lights.

 

Visiting Lapland in Winter

November – March:

If you’re after snow, snow, more snow and the Northern Lights, then these months are your best bet. You can absolutely guarantee perfect conditions for skiing, snowmobiling and any other snow-based activity, and your chances of seeing the Northern Lights are at their very best – you won’t get a better time or place to see them anywhere, at any other time, in the world.

Top Things to Do in Lapland

Top Tips for Visiting Lapland

  • Wrap up warm if you’re travelling in winter. Bring toasty base layers, like thermal underwear or leggings, a fleece or wool sweater, a hat, scarf, and wool socks, the temperature is generally -10 to -25 degrees.
  • The Northern Lights are visible from August to April, as soon as the nights get dark. To maximise your chances though, visiting in the long, dark nights of the winter increases your chances highly, as they tend to be visible every second night.
  • In summer, be sure to bring mosquito repellent. Lapland’s many lakes and waterways provide a great home for midges, so to ensure you don’t spend your entire trip swarmed by bugs, we’d say insect repellent is an essential item.
