Home to Lapland’s unique igloo village, Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort lies high above the Arctic Circle in the heart of the Lappish wilderness. Spend three nights in this winter wonderland, exploring the glistening white landscapes by snowmobile or husky sled, and after dark search for the magical northern lights on a thrilling reindeer sled safari or from the comfort of your very own glass-domed igloo.
Fly to Ivalo and transfer to Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort. Check in to a secluded log cabin and spend the evening relaxing by the roaring fire or dining at one of the resort’s two Lappish restaurants. For those bold enough to brave the elements, head to one of Kakslauttanen’s five smoke saunas before jumping into the frozen river for a truly energising Finnish experience. (D)
Pre-book optional activities to explore the wilderness in true Lapland style. Take a snowmobile or snow tank adventure through the white forest, or opt for a more traditional method of transport with a thrilling ride on a husky or reindeer sled. After dark, hire skis or snowshoes and head out into the Arctic wilderness in search of the incredible aurora borealis. (B,D)
Try your hand at another winter adventure activity or fulfil childhood dreams with a visit to Santa’s home at Kakslauttanen’s festively-decked grotto, complete with elves and reindeer. Understandably the man himself is pretty busy during the winter months – be sure to pre-book a Santa visit in advance. After dark, perhaps consider an evening reindeer sled safari or horseback ride in search of the swirling northern lights. Relax in the warmth of the resort’s glass igloo bar before spending the night in a glass igloos and watch the starry night from the comfort of your reclining bed. (B,D)
