Pine Bay Lodge is homely, welcoming, and perfectly placed to enjoy the thick winter snowfall and superb displays of the northern lights. Some of the activities you can undertake on this short break include snowmobiling, husky dog sledding, hovercraft safari across the frozen lake and snowshoeing under the aurora borealis.

For a really special memory we have included a dinner on the ice!
