Before the arctic winter covers the Lappish countryside with a thick blanket of snow and ice – head out to Lapland to see the northern lights dance across autumnal landscapes whilst staying in a cosy log cabin with your own private sauna and spending one night in the glamping domes.
Available 22nd August - 20nd September.
Fly to Kittila via Helsinki and check in to your log cabin for 2 nights. (D)
This morning, after a hearty Lappish breakfast, visit a local reindeer farm. Meet and feed the reindeer and try your hand at lasso throwing. Continue to a husky farm to meet the friendly animals and enjoy a picnic lunch around the fire. In the evening, uncover the secrets of the Northern Lights and head out to a nearby campfire. Whilst cooking pancakes over the open fire - keep an eye out for the lights dancing overhead. (B,L,D)
