4 Nights Romantic Aurora Adventure Saariselkä

From £2793 per couple

What You'll Do

The ultimate escapist getaway for two, this adventurous, romantic destination is breathtaking in its isolation and beautiful surroundings. Blissful relaxation, adrenaline-pumping outdoor adventures and the world's greatest natural wonder make this an unforgettable trip.

Finally, five days that are focused entirely around you. You’ll both receive private use of the sauna and spa, enjoy a relaxing massage, and cut out any hassle with fully-included, private transfers. Dine on traditional Finnish cuisine, using ingredients fresh from the stunning countryside, by a roaring open fire in the perfectly silent, snow-dusted forest.

And, of course, unwind in your accommodation for two, a glass-roofed Aurora cabin, allowing you spectacular views of the night sky, scattered with stars, and of the otherworldly northern lights.

The daytime Lapland adventures include breathtaking arctic nature experiences; an exhilarating snowmobile safari and a reindeer sledge ride with a small group. The package also contains two special activities specially designed for couples. On a husky safari, you’ll be taken out into the wilderness pulled by a team of beautiful dogs.

The second private activity is a dinner that goes beyond your average date night. We’ll take you on a journey up the beautiful, wide-open fells in a heated sleigh, then, a 3-course dinner – complete with sparkling wine – will be set for you by an open fire as you wait for the northern lights to appear.

The schedule is planned so that you will have plenty of time for yourselves. You could go to visit the Saariselkä Spa nearby, book other activities, enjoy Saariselkä nightlife or explore Lapland’s surrounding nature on your own. Or, simply relax in the aurora cabin – the time is yours to enjoy and you can do whatever you and your partner wish.

After a day of arctic adventures, wrap up in a blanket under the Milky Way and the North Star, and watch as the tongues of flame that constitute the northern lights dance across the pure, clear skies.

A full example itinerary is detailed below, activity timings can differ slightly,  your own personal schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Experience Itinerary

Welcome to Wilderness

We’ll pick you up directly from Ivalo airport, and transfer you deep into the untouched, pristine Lappish wilderness.

We’ll show you to your home for the weekend, your cosy, warm cabin nestled in the Arctic forest and the snow-covered fir trees.

After you’ve settled in and had some dinner, with any luck, on your very first night you’ll get to witness what you came for – the spectacular Northern Lights. Gaze in awe as the ethereal ribbons of light whisper their way through the atmosphere, then head back for your first evening in your luxurious, glass-topped cabin.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Explore Lapland's Beauty - Then Unwind

The morning excursion for day two of your romantic trip to the far north will take you deep into the snowy fells and forests, as you saddle up for a 4-hour snowmobile ride.

Explore the true back-of-beyond, on an exhilarating journey through stunning natural beauty, and return feeling satisfied and wearied after a morning of activity.

The perfect remedy for any tired, cold bones? An aroma or hot stone massage to soothe any aches or pains, and melt into true relaxation in this tranquil, isolated part of the world.

The evening is yours to enjoy. Either explore the site after another hearty dinner by a crackling log fire, or cosy up under a blanket and stare through your glass roof at the perfectly black night sky, hoping to catch a glimpse of the flickering tongues of fire.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Accommodation:

The Aurora Cabins are a magical way to experience the wintry star-filled sky and the Northern Lights, while lying comfortably in the warm bed. The laser-heated glass-roof opens up into the northern sky, directly above the bed.

Get Out into Nature

Spend day three mostly at your leisure, simply enjoying the comfort the site has to offer, the otherworldly landscape, the skis and snowshoes at your disposal, before you spend two hours on the reindeer express.

Meet the animals that are so central to the landscape, and so vital to the survival of the indigenous population, then hiss through the pine forest in a sleigh pulled by the gentle beasts.

Then, that evening, it’s a different kind of journey, as the two of you are taken deep into the wilderness, pulled by a snowmobile, to hunker down in a heated sleigh and take in the incredible spectacle of the Northern Lights, surrounded by nature. A 3-course dinner – complete with sparkling wine – will be set for you by an open fire as you wait for the northern lights to appear.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Accommodation:

Your package includes breakfast, lunch and dinner in their stylish restaurant.

Your Day To Explore

After a hearty breakfast, set out on a husky safari, swishing through the silent, snow-covered forest on your own private sleigh.

Meet these beautiful, energetic dogs that will take you exploring through the glistening  wilderness, on a safari you are sure never to forget.

After this experience you are totally free to explore the site and surrounding wilderness, relax at the nearby spa, or simply lie in gazing at the snow-covered pine trees around you.
