Multi-Activity Holidays (holidays for all)

Experience the Lappish favourite: husky sledding with our multi-activity Finnish Holiday Ideas

Thanks to its fabulous snow coverage, Finland is justly famous for its winter activity breaks. Indeed, multi-activity holidays are one of the best ways to experience the numerous joys of Finland. Offering a perfect introduction to the country, these breaks let you ‘taste’ many different experiences such as snowmobiling, dog sledding, reindeer sleigh rides and ice fishing. And to enhance your experience, they often feature free time so that you can go back to your preferred activities and book optional, longer sessions.

We provide all of the necessary equipment and guidance on your break so you can pick up great new skills ranging from mushing dogs to driving snowmobiles. Our Finnish Holiday Ideas feature week-long breaks; short, snappy getaways and family friendly options. Each itinerary has been carefully crafted to ensure you make the most of every last minute in this wonderful destination and really get to know your surroundings.

And if you’re looking to travel to Finland in summer rather than winter, you can swap the snow for the Midnight sun and look forward to long, lovely days spend canoeing, hiking and bear watching!

Each of our holidays is carefully planned to give you just the right balance of organised activities and free time to enjoy each other’s company. We have week-long activity holidays to look forward to as well as short breaks for those searching for a different way to celebrate.

A meeting with Santa is the highlight of any festive break for families with children. Our holidays offer a host of ways to see the man in red – from visiting him at his woodland hideaway to catching up with him in the Santa Village or even at your hotel. If you're looking for an extra special festive experience, why not enjoy a private meeting with Santa? Sure to be a hit with the kids, these meetings are the highlight of a Christmas break with the man himself! These Finnish holiday ideas add real sparkle to any festive celebration and promise memories to last a lifetime. Due to its location as the home of Santa Claus, it's not possible to arrange a festive break to Finnish Lapland without him making an appearance for the children. However, if you're travelling on an adults' Christmas break, our activity-led itineraries only include Santa visits on Christmas Eve.

Travel at New Year, on the other hand, and welcome the 1st January with a Gala Dinner, fireworks and traditional fortune telling. And with great daytime activities to enjoy when you are not in party mode, you simply won’t want to leave fabulously festive Finland.
