Your destinations

Helsinki

One of the world's most sustainable and eco-conscious destinations, Helsinki, the vibrant capital of Finland, is a beautiful seaside city that boasts urban charm, historic majesty and a dynamic dining scene. Stylish, creative, and forward thinking, the city of Helsinki offers its visitors an insight into Nordic culture, packed with friendly locals, traditional sauna experiences and a laid-back, approachable lifestyle.

 

In addition to the urban elements of this destination, including the many museums, concerts, and Finnish flavours, Helsinki acts as a gatway to some of the country's most beautiful nature. While the Helsinki Archipelago is made up of over 300 unique islands, the city is also nestled less than two hours away from six spectacular national parks, making Finland's beautiful capital the ultimate base for a holiday that combines the best of both worlds.

Rovaniemi

Rovaniemi is the capital city of Lapland in northern Finland, and is known as the 'official hometown of Santa Claus'. Home to Santa Claus Village, a year-round Christmas-themed attraction, this is heaven on earth for festive fanatics. Breathe in the purest air in Europe and dive into a country where 70% of the territory is covered with forest areas - this is a true escape from the everyday.

 

Thanks to the city’s proximity to the Arctic Circle (just 6km away), the city is the perfect place for a magical wintry escape. Catch the incredible spectacle of the Northern Lights, and explore the Arctic Circle Hiking Area, a diverse trail network where you can admire rapids and aapa mires, a complex landscape of wetlands.

 

Besides the Christmas festivities, Rovaniemi is also a great springboard from which to explore the Ranua Wildlife Park and the Arkitikum Science Museum. While you might have a spectacular winter break in mind, the summer is the time to experience the unique spectacle of the Midnight Sun - between the 6th June-7th July, the sun never falls below the horizon, meaning even more time for activities like horse riding, hiking, and jet skiing!

Ivalo & Saariselkä

Saariselkä is located in the Far North of Finnish Lapland, so is particularly suitable for the sighting of the Northern Lights, a natural phenomenon that often occurs at these latitudes. The Northern Lights season lasts until April, after this the days become longer and temperatures rise until midnight sun in summer. Snow starts to melts and landscape starts to change to spring/green. 

 

It's a gateway to the Urho Kekkonen National Park so is surrounded by amazing snow-covered scenery to explore. Saariselkä is an authentic area where nearly 200 Sami herders live. Snow generally arrives around the end of November here making it the best time to visit the area. 

 

From the top of the mountain overlooking the resort, on clear days, you can see all the Lapland up to the border with Norway in the north and with Russia in the East: a breathtaking view of endless snow-covered forestsfrozen lakeswide plains and sublime mountains.
