Northern Lights in the Artic

4 nights / 5 days

Saariselka

Travelling to Finnish Lapland in the autumn months should be on everyone’s bucket list. Enjoy Ruska, the finish word to describe the autumn foilage and the vibrant colours. Another good reason to visit is the frequency of the Northern lights. Autumn offers great opportunities to view lady Aurora.  We have created this short break to offer you a little of everything, glass roofed cabins, Sami culture, the northern lights, lakes, Ruska and an opportunity to enjoy fresh air and beautiful nature.  What are you waiting for?

Day 1: Arrival

Arrival at Ivalo airport. Shared transfer from the airport to the Northern lights village, located approximately 30 minutes away. On arrival check in to your aurora cabin. The aurora cabins are a magical way to experience the wintery sky and Northern lights. The laser heated glass roof opens up into the Northern sky, a perfect way to see the Northern lights whilst laying in your king size bed.

Day 2: Sami Culture
