Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » Fly to Finnish Lapland

    Fly to Kittilä via Helsinki and transfer to Harriniva Hotel, a pine-clad wilderness hotel where hearty home-cooked food and an equally hearty Finnish welcome set the scene for days of Arctic exploration. Check into your room before enjoying dinner at the hotel's restaurant. Then, as you settle in for a cosy night's sleep, the hotel's aurora alarm will be on hand in case the Northern Lights appear, ensuring you don't miss a thing.

    Stay: Hotel Harriniva, Muonio

  • Day 2 » Husky safari

    After breakfast you'll have some free time to explore the local area. In the afternoon a guide will show you around the husky farm before leading you out on a thrilling two-hour husky safari. Slip at great speeds through the trees and along snow-covered paths with your faithful companions panting ahead of you. Then, return to the hotel for dinner.

    Today is left entirely free for you to choose your own activities. Maybe try cross-country skiing, or prepare lunch at the wilderness cooking school. We have included an evening Northern Lights snowshoe adventure, head out with your guide into the wilderness to a nearby camp-fire where your efforts are rewarded with a hot drink and snack, whilst you keep an eye out for the aurora above. We picked Harriniva as one of the best places to see the Northern Lights this winter and, if you catch them, it's easy to see why.
