Dreaming of a winter wonderland? Discover an enchanting getaway full of exciting adventures on a luxury holiday in Lapland. You'll find the finest seasonal activities, whether you visit in the heart of winter or want to make the most of the summer sun. Make sure Santa knows you've been nothing but nice!
Lapland is full of surprises, including a period of three months where 24-hour sunlight takes over from the dark winter nights. You'll find towns and popular ski resorts right near the tranquil wilderness, ensuring that our 5 star Lapland holidays boast something for everyone. Renowned attractions for the area include the Aurora Borealis, otherwise known as the Northern Lights. This surreal sight is an experience of a lifetime, and the Lapland region offers one of the best places to view this natural phenomenon.
Visiting Lapland during the midnight sun period, with 24-hour sunlight, is a huge contrast to visiting in winter. Events take place during this time to make the most of the magical midnight surroundings, so keep this in mind when planning your holidays in Lapland. Skiing is a popular activity in the region, and you'll find family-friendly options as well as more advanced routes. You can also see the snowy sights on a ride with either huskies or reindeer, a magical activity to enjoy on luxury family holidays in Lapland. Plus, a trip would, of course, be incomplete without a visit to see Santa Claus at his Rovaniemi office.
Lapland is also home to the Sami – the only indigenous people of the European Union. The Sami people have a strong association with local myths and legends. With around 6,000 Sami people in Finland, they are breaking traditional perceptions with modern influences, including the creation of a rock band known as 'SomBy'.
