Surrounded by the beautiful rapids of the Raudanjoki River and miles of forest and pristine Lappish wilderness, but also just a 20-minute drive from Rovaniemi, the Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge is an excellent choice for travellers keen to experience the very best of Lapland's glistening winter. These 20 new Panorama Design Huts have been built on site, offering wall-to-wall panoramas of the surrounding snow-drenched countryside, and spectacular views of the northern lights from the bed.
Fly to Rovaniemi and transfer to a Panorama Hut for three nights. After dark follow the natural light provided by the snow reflection, stars and moon on an enchanting snowshoe hike in search of the northern lights. Cross a footbridge which leads to a river island and admire frozen rapids below. Relax in the wintry atmosphere whilst frying sausages on an open fire before heading back to the Arctic Wilderness Lodge for a heart-warming dinner. (D)
