4 days - Early Northern Lights, campfires and forest exploring at a peaceful Lapland resort

If you don’t fancy the sub-zero temperatures associated with Northern Scandinavia in winter, consider an autumn tour. Enjoy the best of Finnish Lapland, staying in the lakeside retreat, located 230kms north of the Arctic Circle. This local resort offers a great range of early Northern Lights activities as well as comfortable Scandinavian style accommodation.

Enjoy peaceful afternoons at the lake, discovering the nature and wilds of Finland. You can pick as many berries and mushrooms as you can carry, the lake is full with tasty fish and the Jeris River is just a stone throw away.
