Tours in Lapland

We create delightful experiences for your group

Lapland is an extraordinary destination with unique natural phenomena such as Polar nights, autumn colors, Northern Lights, Arctic cities nestled among Ice Age fells. The contrast between the summer and winter in Lapland is immense; in the wintertime the days are short and you have a great chance of spotting Northern Lights, while in the summer you can experience the midnight sun and magical white nights.

We are more than happy to organize tailor-made tours for groups of 10 or more and for smaller groups and independent travelers we have prepared hassle-free ready-made tour packages.

Ideas to include on your Lapland group tour

Witness Aurora Borealis

The light show of Aurora Borealis is spectacular and many people have it in their bucket list to see them at least once in their lives. Bringing your group to one of the best places to see them is in Lapland (northern parts of Finland, Sweden, and Norway) makes it possible to witness them live.

Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights as we also know them, are a natural phenomenon and the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by the solar wind. You can never know when they appear, but there are various apps that forecast them.

In order to see the Northern Lights, you need to be in a place with less light. You can hunt for them by car, snowmobile or a reindeer, and we can organize a tour with professional guides to better your groups’ chances of seeing them. If your group stays overnight in an Aurora cabin or glass igloo, they may be some of the lucky ones who spot them from the comfort of their own beds.

The Aurora Borealis can be visible in Lapland from late August until mid-April.

Contact us and let us know that your group is keen to go Aurora hunting.

Overnight in snow igloos

Do you have an adventurous group who are up for sleeping in a room where the temperatures are kept between 0ºC and -5ºC? If yes, a snow igloo may be just what you’re looking for. It is perhaps one of the most exotic places to spend a night in. If your group wants to sleep in an igloo but don’t like the cold, then perhaps a glass igloo would be the better choice for you. Both the snow igloos and glass igloos have proven to be very popular in Lapland for visitors to stay at.

The outside temperatures can drop below -30º Celsius. Even though it’s cold outside, you can rest assured that your bed in a snow igloo will be snug and warm. Depending on location, the snow igloos are a bit different, but in general, you sleep on a reindeer skin wrapped inside a comfy sleeping bag. Thanks to the insulating properties of snow the temperature will stay stable inside the igloo.

Contact us and let us know that your group wants to include overnight igloo experience on their tour!

Overnight in glass igloos

As Lapland is one of the best places in the world to see Northern Lights, local entrepreneurs have come up with an imaginative way to enjoy the natural phenomenon without having to be outside in the cold.

Glass igloos or aurora cabins allow your group to admire the nature around and the night sky. Your group will also have a possibility to spot some Northern Lights from the comfort cosy beds.

Most glass igloos in Finland are located within the Aurora Zone, around or to the north of the Arctic Circle. Similar structures have been built in more southern parts of Finland too with the idea to enjoy the nature around you.

Some igloo resorts are located in Levi, Luosto, Pyhä, Saariselkä or near the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi. Muotka and Lake Inari Mobile Cabins are located in more remote areas.

Contact us and let us know that your group wants to include overnight igloo experience on their tour!

Meet Santa Claus

Finnish Lapland is a dream come true for all those who love Christmas. In Rovaniemi, Finland, you can experience Christmas every single day of the year. What makes it even more amazing is that you can meet Santa Claus in person at his office at the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi, right at the border of the Arctic Circle. Here you can experience the magic and goodwill of Christmas. Your group can meet Santa Claus, have a chat with him and get photos with him.

Contact us and let us know that your group wants to meet Santa Claus on their tour!

Include a husky sledding adventure

Make sure to include this wonderfully unique adventure on your groups’ Lapland tour! Dog mushing is definitely one of the coolest ways to get around in Lapland! One can drive the sled by themselves or let professional mushers do it while sitting back and relaxing in the sleigh. Duration of a wintry dog sleigh ride varies from a few minutes to several hours or even days!

Your group can meet husky dogs and try dog sledding year-round. The main season for husky rides is in the wintertime, but in the summertime, if it’s less than +15C, a few husky farms provide husky safaris on a sled with wheels. No matter the season, your group can visit husky dog farms and learn more about the daily life of a sled dog.

Please note that we do not provide husky rides as stand-alone activity. Tours organized through us always include at least accommodation and transfer in addition to activities.

Contact us and let us know that your group wants to include dog sledding adventure on their tour!

Experience the Magical Midnight Sun

The Midnight Sun has a unique light and during Finland’s summers, you can admire this light on a photography tour, while riding a mountain bike, when floating on a wilderness lake, or basically anywhere. The period of the Midnight Sun happens in the summer when the sun does not set at all. It is almost impossible to describe it, it needs to be experienced in person

Midnight Sun is so much more than normal sunlight. Imagine walking in a forest at 3 am without needing any other light to guide your way because the Midnight Sun will be there to light your way. The sun doesn’t burn you and the tone of the light is softer compared to the sun during day time. No wonder it is called magical.

Contact us and let us know that your group wants to experience the Midnight Sun in the Nordic summertime.

Experience sauna and bathe like locals in Lapland

Your group may wish to try bathing in a proper Finnish sauna. Options vary from a privately rented sauna by a lake or even legendary public saunas. In the wintertime, the sauna experience is best combined with ice swimming and in the summertime, bathers can rejuvenate themselves by whipping each other with birch whisks.

It is estimated that there are two million saunas in Finland. The population of Finland is about 5.5 million so you can imagine how important the saunas are for the locals.

Contact us and we will include a tailor-made sauna experience as part of your groups’ tour! We are local experts and here to help your group to get the most out of our Finnish sauna bathing experience.

Best of both worlds: Helsinki – Lapland combination

Your group is likely interested in experiencing city life in Finland and combine it with Lapland’s winter wonderland or midsummer sun dream.

Helsinki is the Capital of Finland, where you will feel the closeness of nature while being in the largest city of Finland. From Helsinki-Vantaa airport, there are daily flights to different destinations in Lapland such as Rovaniemi, Kuusamo, Kittilä and Ivalo airports. By air, the travel time is about an hour.

If you’re eager to see more of the countryside and want to travel in a more sustainable way, taking the night train between Helsinki and Rovaniemi is a great option. On this 12-13h trip, you get to see how nature changes from south to north.

Add a stopover in Helsinki

Your group may wish to include a short stop-over in Helsinki on their way to Lapland. Helsinki-Vantaa airport is a popular stopover for thousands of travelers and the amount is increasing year by year. Many visitors like to add a few days to discover Helsinki before they continue their trip. The airport is only about 30-minutes from the center of Helsinki. If you happen to have even a few hours between flights, you can visit the city instead of spending your day at the airport.

Our local guide can meet your group at the airport and start the Helsinki mini-adventure from there. Why waste time at the airport when there is an option to explore Helsinki. With local advice, it is possible to see the main sights, enjoy city vibes and visit some of the lovely cafes for example even if you only have a few hours to spare.

Contact us and we will organize a tour to Lapland including Helsinki stopover tour uniquely for your group.
