Situated close to the Pallas-Ylläs National Park in western Lapland, the Hotel Harriniva is the perfect base for enjoying outdoor pursuits. A summer activity holiday in Finnish Lapland is a great way to spend quality time with family or friends, and the fresh air and pristine countryside really lets you reconnect with nature.
Summer in Finnish Lapland is characterised by long daylight hours, since its northerly location, above the Arctic Circle, means that the sun barely dips below the horizon before rising again. This is great news for travellers on our summer activity holiday as, whether you're an early riser or a night owl, you can enjoy the great outdoors almost around the clock.
Our summer activity holiday let's you tailor make your own break, as all of the activities are optional. Spend time doing what you want to do and put together the ideal programme for your family from our extensive range of optional excursions.
The Hotel Harriniva always greets guests with a warm welcome. The rooms are cosy and comfortable and the décor reflects the traditions of Sámi culture. Some rooms even have their own private sauna, which is the perfect place to unwind after a day’s activities. Hearty home-cooked meals are served in the hotel’s spacious dining room and these are always well received at the end of a fun-filled day.
