Make a holiday rental house or cabin in Lapland your home away from home

Lapland is a magical land of snow high in the Arctic Circle of Finland. The stunning, silent white landscape of hills carpeted in snow laden trees cannot fail to endear adults and thrill children, especially as the insinuation of Father Christmas is never far on Lapland holidays when children are present. But Lapland holidays are not just magic for children; summer or winter, trips to Lapland are the most incredible way to escape, relax and get back to nature.

Things to do in Lapland

Many families take Lapland holidays during the winter as the ultimate Christmas break. A snow covered Lapland log cabin could not be a more special place to spend Christmas, especially as you will never go for long without seeing some of the millions of beautiful reindeer in Lapland. There are many ways to tour the region during the winter, whether on cross country skis, skidoo, husky sled or, the most popular way to travel during a winter holiday in Lapland, by reindeer drawn sleigh.

As a winter sports destination, Lapland is virtually unheard of, but that is certainly not to say that the skiing and snowboarding in Lapland is not of the highest quality. Snow is guaranteed from December until April, queues are non-existent and the thought of crowded slopes is almost laughable. Whether you are completely new to skiing or a seasoned expert, you will never have had an experience like a skiing trip to Lapland. The wonderfully fluffy, dry snow is a treat to ski, and snowboarders, skiers and cross-country skiers have no end of route possibilities. There are some excellent ski schools to visit, and the resorts of Levi, Luosto, Ruka, Salla and Yllas will extend the warmest welcome you have ever experienced.

In summer, the region is completely different. Much of the snow has gone, but the reindeer in Lapland remain wandering free among the woods. Cycling and canoeing holidays are absolutely fantastic, and absolute peace abounds. Taking out a boat and a fishing rod is an absolute joy, with perch, trout and pike the most regular catches. You can even try gold-panning in the rivers, and let your Lapland holiday pay for itself!

Trips to Lapland are a real joy as the locals are astonishingly friendly. You will often be invited to sit around a large fire in the evening, enjoying a drink, a little food and a great night’s entertainment. You may even be able to enjoy a smoke sauna.

Places to visit on holiday in Lapland

Levi is one of the best places to take a skiing holiday in Lapland. Cross country skiing, downhill skiing and snowboarding holidays are fantastic and there are plenty of ski schools should you need it. The huge, wide slopes are perfect for learners whilst anyone wishing to try cross-country skiing, there are 230km of trails to take. There are also a half pipe, snow park and a great range of children’s slopes.

Weather in Lapland

The summers are surprisingly warm in Lapland, with daily temperatures often reaching up to around 20˚C, and the days are staggeringly long, with sensational sunsets as the sun just skims the horizon. The winters are obviously cold, dipping as far as -30˚C at times.

Travel to Lapland

Kittila Airport is a tiny airport in Lapland, and receives regular flights from the Helsinki on Finnair. The trip to Lapland is well worth taking at any time of year.

                                  Magical Lapland Cabin (that's affordable!)

                                  5 of 5
                                  We booked this delightful cabin at the last minute for a late break away and it could not have been a better choice. The communication with the owners was so helpful - very quick and detailed and collection of the key was very simple. The cabin is very well equipped - even down to hand warmers! We really wanted for nothing during the week we stayed there. It is very cosy and a perfect base to explore Finnish Lapland. The ski resorts of atlas and Levi were so quiet - we never had to queue for a lift - and having such a cosy cabin to return to each night, it was hard to tear ourselves away from it to make use of the log daylight to explore the area in the evenings. We plan to return in the summertime soon and this cabin will be our first choice!

                                  Magical holiday.

                                  Hi Heli and Mike We had a lovely week in your beautiful cabin, it was so homely and comfortable 10/10 for cleanlines and equipment. A perfect place to see the northern lights, which we saw just out side the cabin.We would recommend your cabin to family and friends. Also the arrangement picking up the keys was well organised. regards Sandra

                                  We stayed here in August - which is great if you want to get away from it all (which we did)...don't expect too many late nights in Luosto! The cabin is lovely - great big kitchen, really comfortable living areas and a fire and we loved the wet room/sauna/hot tub. There were only two of us so we had loads of space, although probably in an ideal world there'd be a double bed or two rather than singles, but we found singles to be the norm in Scandinavia. It's about 10/15 mins walk to the shops - there is a small convenience store in Luosto. To go to a bigger one it's about a 15/20 minute drive to Pyha. Obviously hard to say what it would be like for skiing, but the accommodation was great and the service received from the owners and the local travel agency was excellent too.
