New for 2019, this Lapland winter holiday is just a little bit special. Based at the beautiful, luxury Northern Lights Ranch near Kittila, this is the perfect antidote to busy modern life or a fantastic option for a romantic break or special occasion. Spend your days dashing through the snow on an exhilarating husky safari or exploring the frozen forest by snowshoe, enjoy cosy evenings in the ranch's superb restaurant, and watch the northern lights dance through the skies above your bed through the clear glass ceiling and walls of your private Sky View Cabin. Or better still upgrade to the deluxe Sky View Cabin with its own private outdoor hot tub.
Fly to Kittila, in the northern reaches of Finland, and transfer to the Northern Lights Ranch. This luxurious property is tucked away amongst the trees and snow far from any artificial light pollution, making it the perfect place from which to watch the northern lights each winter. Here cosy cabins boast not just or a ceiling made from glass, but two panoramic, perpendicular glass walls and a glass roof, offering some of the region's best aurora viewing opportunities from your bed.

Awake as the sun rises over the ranch, having (hopefully) enjoyed some spectacular displays of the northern lights from your cabin the night before. Spend today with some of Lapland's most iconic residents: husky dogs. Long used as a form of transport by the indigenous Sami communities during Lapland's frozen winters, these days tourists too can experience the thrill of taking a husky sledge out across the wilderness. Meet your guide and the dogs, and have a demonstration on how to mush the dogs before either taking the reins or climbing into the sled to enjoy the view.
The afternoon is free for you to relax, explore at your leisure or book another active excursion. Perhaps speak to a Regent Specialist about adding an aurora & nature photography workshop to your holiday. (B,D)
Today set off to explore the frozen wilds and surrounding forest on two feet, with the aid of snowshoes, poles and a local activity guide. You'll quickly get the hang of walking in snowshoes and follow a 2km trail over the snow, with the opportunity to take a break and keep warm around a campfire with some hot juice or a cup of coffee.
The rest of the day is free for you to relax, explore at your leisure or book another active excursion. Speak to a Regent Specialist about adding ice fishing or a snowmobile safari to your holiday. (B,D)
Transfer to the airport and take your flight back to the UK. (B)
