WINTER WEEK ON THE ARCTIC CIRCLE

Join our small group for a winter week on the Arctic Circle - part of our Sustainable Travel Collection.

Stay in quality accommodation, enjoying a fun programme of activities in the pure, fresh, Lapland winter, whilst showcasing a sustainable way of travelling.

Staying in the region in late March, this is the perfect "sustainable" time to visit, at the end of the season, and also when the winter daylight hours are at their longest. Stay in the heart of the nature, in the comfort of a personal unique Aurora cabin, the accommodation base has a strong focus on combining sustainability with quality.

Discover the accommodation's special approach to sustainability in a remote location through a range of seasons, experience the silence of e-snowmobiles, the natural noise of yelping huskies, visit the home of locals, discover the traditions of Finnish sauna, and enjoy local food and drink sourced from fresh natural ingredients
