About Your Trip

Discover one of the most remote regions in Europe on this five-day Finnish Lapland escape. From your base on a private island, you’ll experience Finnish sauna culture and enjoy authentic Lappish cuisine. You’ll also glide across snowy landscapes on ski trekking and husky sledding trips, before passing by ice waterfalls on a hike through the Korouoma canyon. If you’re lucky, you might spot bears, lynxes and moose – and even the Northern Lights. Plus, at Santa Claus Village, you’ll have an opportunity to go snowmobiling, visit a reindeer farm or snow hotel, and snap a photo at the Arctic Circle.

Covid Safety

Your safety and wellbeing are our top priority, so we’ve put the following measures in place on all our TRIPS:
  • Our average group size is 10 people (max 18), which gives you all the security of being in a group whilst avoiding a crowd.
  • Our private vehicles have daily assigned seating, and every day they undergo deep cleaning of all surfaces.
  • Where possible, we use small/ boutique accommodation – this means fewer guests and reduced exposure to other travellers.
  • We require all accommodation providers to share protocols around the extra health and hygiene measures they are taking.
  • Included activities are exclusive to our group wherever possible, to minimise contact with others.
  • Covid-19 negative test results or vaccine certificates may be required. Please check the entry requirements for the destination you are travelling to. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
  • We recommend you confirm all guidance on official government sites and check that you are able to travel with your travel insurance issuer. Your travel insurance may be invalidated if you travel against government advice. Our travel experts can assist you in finding this information.
