Northern Lights : Lapland

Set in the north of Scandinavia and incorporating areas of both Sweden and Finland, Lapland is a stunning winter holiday location which enjoys regular light shows courtesy of the Aurora.

This area is inhabited by the Sami people whose fascination with the Northern Lights has created a rich folklore around the subject. Book a break to see the Northern Lights in Lapland and you’ll discover all the myths surrounding the Aurora, finding out what the lights actually mean to this friendly, welcoming people.

For many, the pleasure of taking trip to see the Northern Lights in Lapland is the host of daytime activities on offer. These make daylight hours every bit as thrilling as the time spent hunting the Northern Lights. In Lapland you can enjoy the thrill of husky safaris, the adrenalin-fuelled excitement of snowmobiling, the gentle pleasure of reindeer sleigh rides and some rather more obscure pastimes such as ice-fishing and snowshoeing.

The Mighty Fine Company offers a host of Lappish destinations to choose from, whether you are looking for a well-established activity base or something more remote.

Find your Aurora hunting tour with our range of Northern Lights holidays, or check out our Northern Lights holiday ideas for a little guidance on what types of break we offer.

Away from it All

The Winter Trip to the Wilderness, for example, is a holiday which places you 250km north of the Arctic Circle on the beautiful Saariselkä fells. Here you will find prime light spotting destinations right on your doorstep yet despite the remote location, there’s a host of winter activities to ensure your days are action-packed and your nights offer every chance of seeing the Northern Lights in Lapland.

Fun for All the Family

If you’re looking for the Northern Lights in Lapland on a short break suitable for all ages, the Lapland Short Break for the Family is ideal. Set in the Ranua Wildlife Park, you can match the excitement of nighttime light hunting with the joy of searching out local wildlife during daylight hours. Other highlights of this fabulous trip include visiting Santa, exploring the local zoo and taking a husky safari.

Igloos with a View

For the ultimate experience of spotting the Northern Lights, our Lapland Igloo Village and Northern Lights Holidays are a must. Here you can spend a night in a fabulously cosy glass igloo, giving you a front row view of the heavens, the stars and, hopefully, the Aurora. Daytimes on this getaway are jam packed with fun-filled activities. You’ll learn how to drive a husky sled as well as taking the controls of a snowmobile.

Love is in the Air

For something a little more intimate, have a look at The Eagle’s View Suite at Iso Syote on our Short Romantic Winter Getaway at Iso Syote. Here, in this tree top accommodation with panoramic views, you’ll be able to search for the Aurora from the sheer comfort and luxury of your own private paradise. Again, there are adventures galore on offer during the daytime but tempting you out of this stunning accommodation may prove a little difficult.
