Enjoy peace and tranquility in a snowy wilderness

Travellers who are looking to escape to the wintery landscapes of Lapland and have a go at new and exciting outdoor activities will find themselves in their element on the Arctic adventure tour of Lapland. This week-long holiday gives you an opportunity to try snowmobiling, dog sledding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and reindeer safaris, as well as a chance to learn more about the fascinating Sámi culture. Guests will find themselves fully immersed in the peaceful wilderness and unspoiled nature of Finland’s Arctic region.

Your base for the Arctic adventure tour of Lapland is the family-run Harriniva Holiday Centre, which is located three kilometres away from the village of Muonio in North West Finland. It enjoys a serene setting on the banks of the Muonio River and the beautiful Pallas-Ylläs National Park is a mere stone’s throw away. A network comprising hundreds of kilometres of snow-dusted trails criss-crosses through the forests and over the fells, creating a giant playground in which to enjoy many outdoor pursuits. There are also activities available at night time, which let you search for the Northern Lights with knowledgeable guides. At the end of each day, the traditional Finnish sauna awaits by the riverside, followed by a hearty dinner made with local ingredients in the cosy restaurant. After an evening relaxing by the fireside in the bar, you will no doubt be ready for your comfy bed, before enjoying it all over again the next day.
