This new, three-night luxury break in Javri Lodge is a full-board delight that's the very definition of luxury. Situated 250km north of the Arctic Circle, it’s right on the doorstep of one of Finland's largest national parks, but it's the interiors that steal the show here in Scandi-luxe greys, timber-clad walls and sprawling, design-led spaces. Exquisite suites all impress, but the new Sky View Cabins are particularly special with panoramic vistas of outside's snow-dusted expanse. Included two-hour excursions are the perfect prelude to indulgent, full-board dining plucked directly from outside's wilds. An adults-only rule means it's an ideal getaway for a couple or a group of friends as you culminate days in the sauna and seek the psychedelic tendrils of the Northern Lights.
Northern Lights Luxury Break at Javri Lodge
Day by day itinerary
Day 1 » UK to Javri Lodge
Arrive at Ivalo airport and enjoy a private transfer to the stunning Javri Lodge, once the Lapland residence of Finland’s longest serving president – not surprising when you see its spectacular interiors. Intimate luxury is the order of the day here, all rustic log-wood walls and field stone fireplaces made luxe with high ceilings and fur-trimmed features. Check into your cosy, timber wood-walled suite but for true extravagance, choose one of the new panoramic Sky View cabins, where shabby-chic concrete walls contrast beautifully with chic, sleek black panelling and floor-to-ceiling windows that are the perfect frame to outside's snow-blanketed stalagmites. Enjoy the first of your included dinners tonight in the sprawling dining room, where you'll enjoy the likes of fish plucked from the nearby Lake Inari and hand-picked cloudberries. Perhaps accompany your dinner with the excellent selection of world-class wines.

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, or for more thrilling escapades there's husky and snowmobile safaris, or you could even get to know Lapland's friendliest residents with a charming reindeer ride through the empty fir forests, with wilderness fireside lunches in between. It's all wonderful prelude to a a dip in the heated indoor swimming pool and soak in the sauna before heading out in search of that magical aurora.
