About 100km north of the Arctic Circle is Levi - Finland's largest ski resort and a great destination for exciting activities such as snowmobiling, reindeer safaris and dog-sledding. Staying each night at Levin Iglut glass igloos, offers a chance to seek the elusive Aurora Borealis. You can also add an overnight at the unique Snow Village, a tour of the snow suites, ice bar, sculptures and chapel, or various Northern Lights searches - all are optional activities.
Arrive at Kittila Airport and transfer to Levin Iglut Hotel for 3 nights in your very own glass igloo. The remainder of the day and night are at your leisure. You may like to participate in an optional Northern Lights excursion or Snow Hotel visit. Dinner each evening is at Restaurant Utsu.
Today we enjoy a winter wonderland, by snowmobile. After receiving driving and safety instructions, it's time to head out into the unforgettable Lappish nature, through snowy forests and over frozen lakes. En route, take a break with a warming cup of berry juice. 2 persons share each snowmobile. The remainder of the day is at leisure - simply relax amidst the surroundings or add an optional activity, such as Ice Karting or Aurora Search by Snowshoes.
Transfer to a husky or reindeer farm (day dependent). At the husky farm, you will be instructed on how to handle your own dog sled and team before travelling out into Lapland's majestic nature. After the ride, enjoy hot berry juice by an open fire to round out a truly memorable experience. OR... At the reindeer farm, meet these wonderful Arctic animals. The reindeer herder will then sit you snugly in the sleigh before you depart on a traditional nature ride. Afterwards, enjoy a cup of coffee with a small snack, while listening to stories about these amazing creatures.
After dinner, another chance to enjoy an optional evening activity - Aurora Hunting by Candlelight or Aurora Search by Snowmobile.
Following breakfast this morning, your arrangements conclude with transfer back to Kittila Airport. If time allows for another optional activity, you could go Fatbiking before your departure transfer.
Extend your tour by adding an optional overnight, staying amongst carved snow sculptures at the Snow Village, with dinner at the Ice Restaurant. This also allows for more optional activities - Santa Claus Village, Arctic Circle and Santa Park visit (a great combination tour!) or Winter Fun at Santa's Hideaway. Arrangements then conclude on Day 5, with transfer back to Kittila Airport.
Additional nights and optional excursions can be added.
Snow Village overnight - extend your experience by adding an extraordinary stay in a traditional Snow Igloo. Although the outside temperature can drop to -30º, the inside temperature stays much warmer at around -5º and your soft mattress, thick sleeping bags and hot juice, all ensure a warm and comfortable night.
All excursions operate with a 2 person minimum and are day dependent. If you are a solo traveller and there is no second person booked on an excursion, you may be required to pay additional fees in order for the excursion to proceed. All snowmobile drivers must show a valid Driver's License. Some excursions are subject to minimum age/height requirements. The order of the excursions may alter.
