Selected Accommodation

We have been using the core of this selection of hotels in Lapland for many years and are always looking for new and exciting accommodations to add to our portfolio. We believe this selection offers something for every taste and consistent reports from clients confirm that these are all great choices for holidays in Finland. You may wish to combine your Lapland experience with a city stopover in Helsinki and we have highlighted a great choice here too.

Thank you for the most amazing experience on our trip to Finland. To walk out on to a frozen lake, miles from anywhere and see the most amazing display of the northern lights was like a 10-year old walking into Disney. It was fantastic! The big problem now is how are we going to match that for our next holiday. Mr. C. C. - Suffolk

Thought you would like to know that we had the most wonderful time at Harriniva. Thoroughly enjoyed all the activities (did extra huskies and horse riding) and saw the Northern Lights on 3 evenings. Food and staff were excellent too. We thought this would be a "one-off" holiday but already thinking about next year! Mr. & Mrs C. - Worcs.

We loved our summer holiday and are very sad to be back. Finland is such a beautiful country and a lovely place to be, surrounded by nature. The food was amazing every day! Papin Talo Guesthouse was beautiful, in such a restful location. We loved all the amenities on offer and took great use of the boats and bikes. Staff were very friendly and always very helpful. We would definitely stay again. Miss. E. J. - Essex

About Finland

For our Director, Steve, travel to Finland stretches back to 1986 when he first reached the country from northern Norway by road and camped wild in the forests whilst journeying southwards. Since then he and other staff have travelled throughout Finland many times, during all seasons and participated in numerous activities. Steve has also been invited back to consult on tourism development projects in the Wild Taiga region of northeast Finland.

What really strikes us each time we return, besides the huge forests, the number of lakes and general peacefulness of the countryside is the hospitality of the Finns. They really do know how to produce good holidays whether they are winter activity holidays, wildlife holidays, or summer adventures hiking and canoeing. There are deep respect and love for the outdoors and Finland has packaged this and it translates well into Wildlife & Wilderness holidays.

Yet this is Nordic region is mostly off the radar for Brits and Europeans. The taiga forest that stretches from Norway, Sweden and Finland right across Siberia is a biome that we know little about. The wildlife here is different and distinctive. Brown bears, wolves, elk, lynx, wild reindeer and beavers are present. Bird species seen include capercaillie, black grouse; owls including great grey, Ural, Tengmalm's, hawk and pygmy owls; red-throated and black-throated loons on the lakes with Goldeneye and smew; cranes, Siberian jays and willow tits among others.

In summer it can be hot and sunny with 24-hour daylight and in winter cold with deep snows and the brilliant aurora borealis. There are so many more possibilities for natural adventures here and if you go and try the more popular winter activity holidays then we encourage you to return in the summer and enjoy the outdoors as the Finns do.
