Finland: Aurora Adventure at Harriniva in Finland

Combine winter activities with Finnish nature

7 Days From £1781

Combine winter activities with Finnish nature

In winter the Harriniva Holiday Centre is enveloped by snow-laden pine trees and the Muonio River, and sets the scene for a perfect Aurora adventure in Finland. The charming wooden exterior of the holiday centre is in keeping with the natural habitat of Pallas-Ylläs National Park which is just a stone’s throw away. Finnish Lapland is an excellent place for an Aurora adventure and at the Harriniva Holiday Centre, the activities are designed to give you as many opportunities as possible to witness the phenomena. Uniting the pure excitement of our excursions with the untouched nature of Finland, the Aurora adventure holiday is a successful combination of contrasts.

One of the highlights of your trip is an overnight husky adventure to a secluded wilderness hut. Travel through unimaginably beautiful scenery and lose yourself in the silent stillness of Finland’s wilderness as the vast and empty sky surrenders to the uncertain promise of the Northern Lights. There is also a snowmobiling tour and a reindeer safari that introduces you to one of Lapland’s most endearing animals. Embark on the Aurora adventure for an unforgettable experience.
