Aurora Village Short Break

5 Day Tour, from £2085 per person

Experience winter in Finnish Lapland from the comfort of your own private Aurora Cabin at Aurora Village. Fly direct to Ivalo, in the Finnish far north, where the dark night skies are painted bright with the ethereal lights of the aurora borealis almost every clear evening during the winter months, and where the snow-drenched landscapes offer the perfect setting for adventure. The cabins at Aurora Village are tucked away in a remote part of the forests of Inari county, and boast a section of glass roofing above the cosy beds, so the northern lights can be spotted whilst tucked up under the covers. The 'village' entertains guests with husky sledging, snowmobiling, snowshoe hiking and ice fishing.

 

 

 

Tour Itinerary

DAY 1
FLY TO IVALO
FLY TO IVALO

Take a direct flight to Ivalo, in the northern reaches of Finnish Lapland. Transfer to Aurora Village and check in to your double room cabin for four nights. On arrival, enjoy a VIP Welcome Basket containing sparkling water and sweets.

 

The adventures begin this evening, with an Aurora Sleigh excursion. Get comfortable in the back of a cosy sledge, and gaze upwards at the skies to (hopefully) watch the northern lights dance, as you're pulled gently across the snowy region by a snowmobile. Sledges are enclosed with a glass roof, and are lined with lamb fur. This evening also includes a stop for hot drinks and snacks, and photographs will be taken and emailed to you for the perfect souvenir. (D)

DAY 2
HUSKY SAFARI

Today transfer to a nearby husky farm to spend the day getting to know the dogs and trying your hand at husky mushing. Sledges are shared between two people, so alternate between driving the dogs and sitting back to enjoy the ride in the sledge. The route travels through the snowy forests of the region and you'll stop halfway for lunch and to learn from your guide and professional musher. (B,L,D)
