While the term “barefoot luxury” might be misplaced in wintery Lapland, this is one of the finest offerings in understated indulgence. Staying in a boutique, seven-room log cabin, exclusive to your party, you’ll return each day from a range of included activities to Jacuzzi soaks, a beautiful VIP room and gourmet, full-board dining, prepared by a private chef. Indeed, alongside snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, you’ll head out on a dogsledding adventure and a snowmobiling trip through the Lappish wilderness. Lastly, with the lodge far away from any light pollution, just remember to keep an eye out for the Northern Lights each evening. L7 lodge is available for exclusive use only, for groups of four to 14 guests
L7 Luxury Lodge Adventure in Finnish Lapland
Day by day itinerary
Day 1 » UK/Finnish Lapland
Flying to Kittila Airport, you’ll arrive right into the heart of Finnish Lapland. And, your included transfer will be waiting to whisk you through snow-dappled forests to your private, luxury accommodation, all exposed timber logs and wilderness views. If you’ve time, you’ll have free use of the cross-country skis and snowshoes to explore, or you might just want to relax at the sauna and beautiful outdoor Jacuzzi. Then, come the evening, it’s time for the first of your gourmet full-board meals, with a sumptuous multi-course dinner prepared by your own, private chef.
Day 2 » Husky sledding
After breakfast, you’ll be brought out to Lusou Husky Camp where you’ll have a chance to meet the forty dogs. Socialised from birth, they’ll all be impossibly excited to meet their new friend. Your sled will be pulled by a team of four to six huskies, with everyone getting a chance to mush and steer over the 20km route. Your reward at the end? A hot drink and warm snack to be enjoyed by the fire before returning to the L7 Luxury Lodge in time for lunch and afternoon tea; the cakes are excellent. Then, after your multicourse dinner, be sure to make use of the aurora forecast on the touchscreen board as you keep your eyes out for the Northern Lights.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3 » Snowmobiling
With a full day of adventures ahead of you, be sure to fill up at breakfast before you head out into the snow-laden forests of Finnish Lapland. You’ll be carving and winding your way along a 20km snowmobiling trail for the next two hours, taking in the surrounding scenery as you glide across the frozen tundra. Or, upgrade to explore more of the surrounding fjells or to make your way north. An optional reindeer sledding excursion can also be added on today. Then, returning to your luxury lodge, the Jacuzzi and sauna will be waiting to soothe any snowmobiling aches.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4 » Depart for UK
After a final indulgent breakfast, an included transfer will bring you the short distance back to the airport for your flight home.
