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.

The log cabin is lovely and cosy despite it being -20C outside some evenings, the wood burning fire added to the cosiness where we would watch some family movies on the dvd player in the lounge. The sauna was also a nice treat when we weren't busy going out on the well planned excursions by Snowfun Safaris (highly recommended and 10% discount arranged by booking the cabin). Linda the owner was always on hand to answer queries and helped make the trip a success with her advice on what to take and what excursions to go on - we ended up booking the reindeer sleigh trip, snow mobiles to the husky farm and a last minute trip to see the Snow Village. All trips were fantastic and created memories we will never forget. We were also very lucky to witness the Aurora right above the log cabin one clear night. We booked to see Santa at the Poro restaurant and he was so lovely with our niece and had her in fits of giggles when they were sat on his double rocking chair, we also ate a meal here which was lovely (the salmon and arctic char kebabs were sublime). We also ate at Evaskori Pizzeria (huge pizzas) and Julli's Restaurant (lovely steaks). I would highly recommend staying here and it is purely magical at Christmas time. One thing I would recommend is to ensure you make note of the supermarket/off licence and restaurant opening hours at this time of year as not everything is open or hours are sporadic. We managed to cook a full Christmas dinner in the kitchen on Christmas Day will careful planning of the pots and pans available to use. We can't wait to come back and stay again and would also like to see what it is like in the summertime too. Kiitos from the Wright family

Even though we stayed in the cottage with 11 people, it was really comfortable. The host answered all our questions and helped us with everything. I really can recommend this nice cottage and would like to stay there again some day.

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
