Description

From the exhilaration of a husky safari to the thrill of witnessing the spellbinding northern lights, there will be a new experience every day on this fantastic tailor-made adventure.
Experience the beauty of the far north by reindeer drawn sleigh, snowmobile and even on your own two feet as you strap on your skis or snowshoes and head into the wilderness. Enjoy tasty lunches in cosy farmhouses and Finnish kota's, sip hot coffee by roaring campfires and relax each night at dinner in the comfort of Hotel Aurora before retiring to your own personal sauna or snuggling by the fire as you wait for the Aurora Alarm to rouse you for aurora viewings whenever they occur.

Day 1. Arrive Lapland
After settling into the friendly Hotel Aurora, enjoy a delicious dinner before your week of adventure begins.

Day 2. Huskies
Your week of adventure begins with an exhilarating day out with huskies! An unforgettable experience, this trip guarantees an adrenaline fuelled adventure as you drive a team of huskies across this scenic part of Lapland.

Day 3. Snowshoes and Auroras
A more gentle approach today allows you to embrace the stillness of nature on a guided snowshoe trek through the ancient spruce forests of the National Park close to Luosto. As evening draws in you may wish to head out independently in search of the northern lights.

Day 4. FatBikes and Aurora Kota
Today take to the snowy trails on a Fatbike adventure that takes you through the beautiful landscapes that surround Luosto. After an early dinner, head to the 'Aurora Kota' in Sodankylä where you will discover the science and magic behind the Aurora Borealis during a northern lights presentation.

Day 5. Cross-Country Skiing
One of the best ways to enjoy the nature of Lapland is by cross-country ski and today you will discover the joys of this traditional Finnish pastime.

Day 6. Snowmobiles, Reindeer and Northern Lights
Today take to snowmobiles and visit a reindeer farm where you will join a caravan of reindeer drawn sleds on an excursion through the forests. As darkness falls you'll find yourself back on your snowmobiles riding though the polar night in search of the Northern Lights.

Day 7. Amethyst Mine
Your final day of adventure will take you to the top of a mountain by snowmobile to visit the only working amethyst mine in Europe. You can even search for your own gems to take home. Back at the hotel enjoy a warming sauna before your final dinner at Hotel Aurora. You may wish to swap your accommodation this evening and spend your final night in Lapland in a Glass Igloo.

Day 8. Depart Lapland
After a relaxing morning reflecting on your weeks adventures it's time to pack up and head home.

Hotel Aurora is proud to offer Luosto's first and only Glass Igloo's. Located just a few steps away from the main building these beautifully designed Arctic accommodations offer panoramic views through the glass walls and ceiling of the surrounding Lappish landscape and Arctic skies, offering a unique chance to experience amazing displays of the northern lights from the comfort and warmth of your own private en suite room.
