    Snowmobile and Husky Safari
    No Winter Short Break in Finnish Lapland would not be complete without a thrilling snowmobile safari across the pristine Arctic wilderness. Learn how to control the powerful vehicles that are so commonly used in these regions, before setting off on an invigorating ride. Zip over sparkling landscapes to meet a pack of adorable huskies that will eagerly lead you on a 6km safari, once you have been given instructions on how to guide them. (Drivers of snowmobiles must have a full and valid driver's licence.)

    Snowshoe Hiking
    Learn how to master the art of snowshoeing on your winter activity break as you hike through deep snow over the hilltop of Iso-Syöte. You will be greeted with phenomenal views of the surrounding frozen countryside that is adorned with beautiful snow sculptures, clinging to the branches of trees. Stop for hot drinks and cookies during the two hour trek and absorb the breathtaking panoramas that are so familiar on our breaks in Finnish Lapland.

    Ice Fishing
    Master the art of ice fishing - a method used for many years in Finland. During this Winter Short Break you will transfer to a nearby frozen lake where you will have the opportunity to drill your own holes into the ice and gently lower the line. Unwind amid a winter wonderland as you sit and wait for a catch, before enjoying coffee around an open fire.

    Northern Lights Safari
    A Winter Short Break in Finland offers the perfect opportunity to go in search of the elusive Northern Lights. This spectacular light show can often be seen against the inky backdrop of Arctic skies. Although sightings cannot be guaranteed, there is no better way of tracking them down than on an exhilarating night time snowmobile safari. Clear conditions, undisturbed by artificial light, provide ideal conditions for seeing the lights on this Winter Short Break. Warm yourself around a crackling fire as you sip coffee and marvel at the starry canvas which envelops you.
