They are 29m2 with twin or double beds, an ensuite shower room and a sofa bed which can sleep 2 children or one adult comfortably. The glass roof is heated to ensure any snow melts so that you get a clear view of the night sky. There is free WiFi and an Aurora alarm.

Location

Your Northern Lights adventure begins when we pick you up directly from Ivalo Airport and transfer you into the Lappish wilderness, through pristine snow encrusted pine forest and snowy fells until we reach your resort in Saariselkä.

Here, you’ll be shown to your private cabin. The stylish, elegant accommodation will be your base for the experiences, and offers beautifully cosy warmth against the Arctic weather outside. On arrival you will be fitted with your cosy outerwear (snow suit and boots) ready for your adventure!

Relax and settle in, take a walk around with the crisp snow underfoot, take a toboggan and have some fun in the snow before your first dinner in Lapland.

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

What our travellers are saying...

Fantastic experience. We joined a tour to find Santa in Finland and it was just perfect. The guides (elves!), reindeers, the whole experience was just superb. Obviously our 3 years old daughter was all around the place, but it felt really good for us adults - it spoke to our inner child. Spoiler: we've also found Santa's cabin. Recommended!

László

We went to Lapland - it is a must! Just the most magical, unforgettable experience with brilliant memories (and fantastic photos) to last a lifetime. My children loved it and I can’t wait to return - hopefully one day with their children.
