Highlights

  • Discover the snow-dusted beauty of one of Finland's most stunning national parks
  • Enjoy daily included two-hour excursions, from snowmobiling to husky sledding
  • Stay in true Scandi luxury, enjoying gourmet meals, an indoor swimming pool & two saunas
  • Spot the magical Northern Lights from far above the Arctic Circle

This break in Finnish Lapland is luxury defined, pairing full-board fine dining with a spread of included daily excursions. Roar through snow-dusted wilds via snowmobile or glide among the forest on reindeer rides, coming back to a contemporary-meets-rustic delight of timber-clad walls and sprawling, design-led spaces. After days of wintery adventure, enjoy indulgent, wine-paired dinners and uninterrupted sauna soaks thanks to the adults-only rule. Be sure to also head out in search of the Northern Lights each night. However, to really spoil yourself, upgrade to a spectacular Sky View Cabin for panoramic vistas of the snow-covered expanse.


Day 1

UK to Javri Lodge

After a chauffeured drive to the airport and a flight to Ivalo, enjoy a transfer to your hotel for the next three nights, the stunning Javri Lodge. Once the Lapland residence of Finland’s longest serving president – a fact that's unsurprising once inside is revealed – this is Scandi luxury at its very best, all log-wood walls and field stone fireplaces adorned with fur-trimmed accents and sprawling ceilings. Rooms are cosy and timber-walled – or, for a truly special trip, opt for one of the new panoramic Sky View cabins.

Here, spectacular snow-dusted vistas are framed by floor-to-ceiling windows and a rustic-chic ambience, with pared-back concrete walls that luxuriously contrast with sleek black panelling and contemporary finishes. There's also a timber-clad dining room, where you'll enjoy the first of your included dinners. The produce plucked directly from nearby Lake Inari is paired with an excellent selection of world-class wines.

Days 2 – 3

Javri Lodge

After breakfast each day, choose from a selection of two-hour activities that are included in your stay here. Perhaps strap on your skis for some cross-country fun through the remote tundra, glide through the silent firs accompanied by Lapland's most emblematic antlered resident, or for more thrilling escapades there are husky and snowmobile safaris. Included lunches can be enjoyed back in the cosy lodge or in the frozen wilderness by an open fire.

It's all a wonderful prelude to leisurely, multi-course dinners before a a dip in the heated indoor swimming pool and soak in the sauna, culminating your nights with a search of that magical aurora – perhaps via snowmobile.

About the itinerary

"I’ve put together this itinerary to contrast the sublime wilderness of Finnish Lapland with one of the finest luxury experiences Scandinavia has to offer. So, after exploring by ski, dogsled or snowmobile, you’ll return to the likes of wine-paired dining and some sauna relaxation. It doesn’t hurt that your national-park setting is one of the best places to spot the Northern Lights."
