Description

From the exhilaration of a husky safari to the thrill of witnessing the spellbinding northern lights, there will be a new experience every day on this fantastic week long adventure.

Experience the beauty of the far north by reindeer drawn sleigh, snowmobile and even on your own two feet as you strap on your skis or snowshoes and head into the wilderness. Enjoy tasty lunches in cosy farmhouses and Finnish kota's, sip hot coffee by roaring campfires and relax each night at dinner in the comfort of the Hotel Aurora before retiring to your own personal sauna or snuggling by the fire as you wait for the Aurora Alarm to rouse you for additional aurora borealis viewings whenever they occur.

Day 1. Arrive Lapland
After settling into the friendly Hotel Aurora, enjoy a delicious dinner before your week of adventure begins.

Day 2. Huskies
Your week of adventure begins with an exhilarating day out with huskies! An unforgettable experience, this trip guarantees an adrenaline fuelled adventure as you drive a team of huskies across this scenic part of Lapland.

Day 3. Snowmobile and Northern Lights
The fun continues with a snowmobile safari through the magnificent Luosto scenery and as evening draws in you'll have the opportunity to discover more about the northern lights from a local guide before walking the trails under the dark night skies.

Day 4. Reindeers and Aurora Kota
Today take to snowmobiles and visit a reindeer farm where you will join a caravan of reindeer drawn sleds on an excursion through the forests. After the sun has set head to the 'Aurora Kota' where you will discover the science and magic behind the aurora borealis during a northern lights presentation.

Day 5. Cross Country Skiing
One of the best ways to enjoy the nature of Lapland is by cross country ski and today you will discover the joys of this traditional pastime.

Day 6. Snowshoes and Auroras
Another gentle approach today allows you to embrace the stillness of nature on a guided snowshoe trek through the ancient spruce forests of the National Park close to Luosto. As darkness falls you'll find yourself back on your snowmobiles as you ride though the polar night in search of the northern lights.

Day 7. Amethyst Mine
Your final day of adventure will take you to the top of a mountain by snowmobile drawn sled to visit the only working amethyst mine in Europe. You can even search for your own gems to take home. Back at the hotel enjoy a warming sauna before your final dinner at Hotel Aurora. There is still time for one last chance to witness the aurora as you strap on your snowshoes and take a nocturnal trek in search for the majestic northern lights.

Day 8. Depart Lapland
After a relaxing morning reflecting on your weeks adventures it's time to pack up and head home.
