Lapland

Tailor made holidays & honeymoons to Lapland, Northern Lights, Arctic Adventure & Non-Commercial Santa holidays. 

Contact us now on 01728 748209 or send an enquiry for your own special trip to Lapland!

In the far north of Finland & Sweden, deep inside the Arctic Circle is Lapland, Europe’s last great unspoiled wilderness area. Breathe in the cleanest air in the world and enjoy a range of winter activities much more than those offered by expensive ski resorts. There are a range of activities from short weekend breaks to weeks with a variety of accommodation in log cabins, wigwam style tents or igloos. Want to take the children (or big children!) to find Santa in the forest, ride on a sleigh or take a husky ride?  Then get in touch for a tailor made non commercial Lapland experience.

By day you can experience reindeer, snowmobile and husky dog safaris with the spectacular backdrop of frozen lakes and hills. After dark, in the silence of the Arctic night, you could witness the Northern Lights, one of the most awesome experiences on the planet.

Adventurous travellers can try cross-country skiing along miles of ski trails, well lit and maintained.  Or have a go at herding reindeer? Learn to steer snowmobiles and ‘mush’ a team of huskies and if you want a real epic adventure travel into the wilderness for several days with the husky team and learn snow shoeing or ice fishing. For families at Christmas time, there is the chance to meet Santa in the forest, take reindeer sleigh rides, enjoy kick sledging, tobogganing and snowball fights!

If you are looking for a private, luxury Lapland experience please do get in touch.  There are some stunning log cabins, chic apartments or igloo rooms we can book for you, there are even private jets we can charter to Lapland if you want a truly bespoke experience.  Some of the Santa holidays are very commercial, so please ask us about some out of the way remote places where you can find Father Christmas! Unusual places to stay include ice and igloo hotels, the Tree Hotel or camping in a Sami Lavu! 

True Lapland is the home of the nomadic Sami people – a land of magic and legends in the far North-west of Finland.  It is about 1000km north of Helsinki and 300km north of Rovaniemi, the commercial Arctic Circle centre. From Enontekio you can explore the immense wilderness and travel the ‘Northern Lights Route’ to Tromso. There are crystal clear lakes and rivers and vast forests.  Enontekio is part of the Sami Homeland where this community of around 2,000 people and 20,000 reindeer, carry out a way of life evolved over centuries. The Sami are indigenous people of Europe and the only ethnic group on our continent to be recognised as aboriginal. There are several dialects of their language and they cover a huge area called Sapmi stretching from central Norway and Sweden across Finland into Russia. Reindeer are their source of food, with tendons and sinews used for sewing and leather for clothing.

The Arctic Winter

November is the start of the Arctic winter with the first falls of snow and polar nights starting and the beginning of the period when the Northern Lights appear.

December has increased flights to visit Santa and there are 22 hours of darkness with the sun never really reaching over the horizon.

January days become a little longer and snow is deep underfoot, a fabulous time to enjoy polar blue skies and Northern Lights.

February is a great half term break for families and the first glimpses of Spring arrive.

March has the deepest snow of the winter, longer daylight hours and great for cross country skiing and overnight Arctic adventures.

Contact us for a tailor made holiday or honeymoon to Lapland, to visit Santa or just for a great winter activity break.

Thank you for booking another amazing holiday for us! Excellent communication about travel details, quick response to any questions and good advice about which trip would suit us best as I was finding it a minefield of possibilities! Highlights were Husky sledding, snowmobiling and the reindeer farm, but really we loved it all. Will be back to book the next holiday!

The trip was amazing! Everything went smoothly - pre travel we received great service from Travel With Jules - Timely communication, great information. All worked well. Nellim Wilderness Lodge was amazing. The staff and the Nordic reps (Katie and Chloe) were fabulous with the children. If I had to pick two highlights it would be the Husky sledging and the Northern Lights.

The meeting with Santa was perfect, they took us out on a snow mobile excursion then as we got to the forest we could see lights flickering in a cabin and went to take a look and found Santa! All the activities plus sledging was right outside the lodge. We loved it so much we might go back again!

Our family holiday to Lapland was truly wonderful, totally memorable and we have so many fantastic memories so thank-you for everything you did for us. We have throughly recommended your service to our friends as you made what was turning out to be an internet search nightmare into a total pleasure. You provide a fantastic service that is worth its weight in gold.

We got back from our holiday to Sweden yesterday and I just wanted to say thank you, it was great! The Tree Hotel was fabulous but it is a bit of a hike up hill in the dark on slippery walkways! Talking to the other guests, the blue cone room we had may not be a […]

Lapland, the activities and our log cabin chalet and the private chef was amazing, everything was perfect. The host we had was 1000% faultless to the point that the boys cried when they left and I think that was down to him more than Santa lol! Thanks again for arranging it all given the very short notice - we will be returning to you for future holidays.

We stayed at the Hotel Iso-Syote over New Year for eight nights and had another magical visit to Finland. Our party was two adults and two children and we decided to book a Fjell Top cottage to give us a little independence, but only a very short walk (maybe 100 metres) from the main hotel […]

I just wanted to say thanks for arranging our holiday to Finland, you came up trumps again! The resort had everything we wanted, as you had told us, so we were able to go skiing as well as all the excursions (dog sledding, snowmobiles) you booked for us. The snow and scenery were fantastic, just like the brochure, which was amazing. And it was VERY cold. Quite an experience. So thanks again for your patience, understanding and organisation. We will be back, so brace yourself!

We had a great time in Lapland and apart from no northern light sightings it lived up to expectations! The Nellim Wilderness Lodge was great and the apartment perfect for a family with the added bonus of our own private sauna. The staff were so friendly and relaxed which gave the hotel a wonderful warm […]

Our holiday was absolutely brilliant, thank you! I would recommend Nellim to anyone - they look after you brilliantly and we didn't want to leave.We saw the Northern Lights and loved the dog sledding and snow mobiles.

We'd all like to say a big thank you for your help in organising our trip to Harriniva Lodge in Lapland this Christmas. We had an amazing time, truly the trip of a lifetime and an experience none of us will ever forget. Meeting Santa was a moment of pure magic!

I wanted to thank you for your efforts in arranging our day trip to Lapland with my son at late notice - it really was magical and flawless from start to finish!

Thank you for organising such a great schedule for us on our recent trip to Norway, especially at such short notice and with so much demand this season for Northern Lights. The Igloo Hotel was a sight to behold, the level of detail they go to throughout but particularly for the little chapel was amazing.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
