Chase the Northern Lights above the Arctic Circle!

FEB & MAR 2025 DATES
Total Price: $3495 p/p

2025 is predicted to be the peak of an 11-year solar cycle. The Northern Lights will not peak again for 22 years.  Now is THE time to visit!

Join us for a winter wonderland adventure through Finnish Lapland. We will venture above the Arctic Circle, float in ice under the Northern Lights (hopefully!) and visit a husky farm for a ride through the snow! No trip to Lapland would be complete without a night in a glass dome under the stars & a traditional Finnish sauna. We will take a snowmobile tour and spend a night in a snowhotel where everything is made of ice and snow. You won’t want to miss this snowy trip of a lifetime!

Fun Facts About lapland

Santa's Village

Santa Claus Holiday Village provides the magic of Christmas every day of the year. Located right on the Arctic Circle, we adore this family-owned hotel and destination. It's fun to feel like a kid again.

Igloos

Each Igloo has a heated glass igloo top above the bed. The roof is made from electrically heated glass, meaning it maintains evenly distributed warmth while melting all the snow and ice off the roof to give you an excellent view to the sky.

Snow Hotel

Stay overnight at one of the biggest Snowhotels in the world. It is carved each year with different themes. The walls and furniture of the unique rooms are decorated with ice art and illuminated artwork. The room is 0–5C°, but using the sleeping bags intended for extreme conditions, you will stay in warmth and comfort.

Northern Lights

Auroras originate nearly 150,000,000 km away. Our sun sends clouds of charged plasma particles towards Earth, called solar wind. If that wind is strong enough, it penetrates our magnetic field & enters the atmosphere. There, the charged particles collide with oxygen & nitrogen to create colorful light.
