Finland Wonderland

Finnish Lapland offers a winter wonderland that has attracted visitors from all over the world. Snow-covered forests, the Northern Lights, clear days and plenty of activities are just some of the attractions that keep visitors coming back year after year, and of course Santa Claus himself! This programme has been designed to offer two of our favourite accommodations in Finnish Lapland. Both are suitable for families and couples alike. Travelling from Saariselka to Rovaniemi (or v.v) is an experience in itself and will give you a real insight into life in Finnish Lapland. Don’t be surprised to see our reindeer friends along the way.
