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.

                                                Superb cottage in beautiful setting

                                                5 of 5
                                                My husband, myself and our 3 adult children had a lovely winter break in this superb cottage. Everything was provided for a comfortable stay, we were very sad to leave. The ski resort at Pyha was ideal and we rented snowmobiles from Pyha Safaris. The Amethyst mine is well worth a visit and we were lucky enough to see the northern lights from the cottage. We love winter holidays in Finland and would definitely recommend this cottage. The owner was very helpful with the booking and any queries that we had. Hope to return one day.

                                                The cabin was lovely, clean and a great location. Communication with owners & managers was excellent

                                                We had the best family holiday - I'd recommend aurora cabin to anyone. It was easy to get keys and set up very well for us as a family - even with sledges outside waiting for keen snow explorers! Easy access to downhill and cross country skiing and close to places to book reindeer, snowmobile or husky safaris who will pick you up if you don't have a car. And the log burner and sauna kept us v snug! Everyone is so friendly and helpful - nothing was a problem - and we even saw the northern lights after a top tip from the owners to head onto the frozen lake. What a lifetime experience ! Thankyou

                                                Das Dorf mit den Einkaufsmöglichkeitetern, Restaurants und lokalen Reiseveranstalter ist in 10 Gehminuten gut erreichbar. Ein Auto wird nicht benötigt. (Obwohl Parkplätze vorhanden wären) Das Blockhaus ist von innen, wie aussen sehr gemütlich und authentisch. Die Küche ist sehr gut eingerichtet, verfügt über Kühlschrank, Spülmaschine, Backofen und Mikrowelle. Das Haus eignet sich sehr gut für Paare oder kleine Familien. Wir können diese Unterkunft nur weiterempfehlen.
