Opened at Christmas 2016, the new Arctic TreeHouse Hotel is the Grand Designs of Lapland holiday accommodation. Each private pod-suite, with its warm wooden interior and exclusive Scandinavian design, includes a glass feature-wall providing unlimited views of the glittering forest and winter skies. Enjoy a thoroughly Lappish experience with snowmobiling, husky mushing and a sleigh ride through the arctic wilderness.
Fly to Lapland’s capital and transfer to the Arctic TreeHouse Hotel. Set into the hillside of the snowy forest, the hotel’s uber-cool pod-suites provide unending views of the landscape and northern skies through an elevated glass wall. Each Scandi-styled suite features double or twin beds, an en-suite bathroom with shower and toilet, flat-screen TV and espresso coffee machine. Ask a Regent Lapland Specialist about interconnecting family suites with cosy nest beds for the kids and well-equipped kitchenettes. A delicious dinner of continental and local cuisine is served at the hotel’s panoramic restaurant. (D)
In the afternoon transfer to our local partner's office to get kitted out in your winter clothing before embarking an adrenaline-pumping snowmobile safari through the Lappish countryside, travelling through crisp white snow and over ice-covered lakes and rivers. Drive deep into the arctic forest to a Sami reindeer farm. Meet and feed the animals before wrapping up in blankets for a reindeer sleigh ride through the wintery landscape. After dinner at the hotel restaurant, cosy up in your Arctic TreeHouse suite and watch the night sky for the magical aurora borealis. (B,D)
Meet Lapland’s lively huskies and learn about the art of mushing. Take the reins and drive your own team of dogs through the arctic wilderness or sit back and enjoy the ride with an experienced musher at the helm. In the afternoon back at the Arctic Tree House, perhaps rent skis or snowshoes and explore the pristine white landscapes around the hotel.
After dinner at the hotel restaurant, snuggle around the open fire in the Arctic TreeHouse lounge, before making your way back to your cosy Treehouse suite, all the while keeping an eye out above for the magical northern lights. (B,D)
After breakfast, transfer to Rovaniemi airport for the return flight to the UK. (B)
