Finland in winter is a magical experience. A scenic winter wonderland located deep inside the Arctic Circle. Blanketed in snow from December to April, reindeer far outnumber people here, and snow-laden trees form bizarre sculptures in a vast and silent landscape. At night the mesmerising Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) can shimmer in the moonlight (not guaranteed – unfortunately not even Spice can do that!). By day there are exhilarating reindeer, husky and snowmobile safaris. This will be the 8th consecutive year we have visited this magical place and it just seems to get better and better!
For some visitors the months of December and January are the most evocative, when the blue twilight of 'Kaamos' envelops the arctic landscape and days pass in a palette of rose-coloured dawns and dusks. Days in the Arctic Circle are shortest from early December to mid-January.
On this trip as well as our included activities and the must have snowball fights and walks, if you fancy something a little bit different from the usual ski resorts, why not try skiing in Finland (Lapland) for truly inspirational landscapes. Many people enjoy skiing in Finland because it is completely unspoiled, remaining a firm favourite with skiers who like to get away from it all. Intermediate and Advanced skiers may find the resort a little restrictive in what it offers!
Finland's crisp, dry type of cold is quite comfortable in protective winter clothing. Warm thermal suits and boots are available to pre-book plus to make your stay most comfortable it is advisable to bring long thermal underwear, warm socks and boots; several light layers of under garments; Ski goggles or sunglasses; Hats and gloves.
In the midst of an unspoilt Arctic wonderland lies our exotic Lappish resort of Levi. Renowned as one of Finland’s best and most extensive ski areas, it offers uncrowded snow-sure skiing from November to May with high standards of accommodation and a warm friendly atmosphere ideal for an all-round winter holiday.
