A Finnish Family Winter Experience
Our Finnish family winter experience has been designed to offer you a unique experience of Finland and how the wilderness is very much part of everyday life. That is why Finns head to their cottages both winter and summer and why the infamous ‘Kota’ and sauna becomes such an integral part of life in Finland along with reindeers, the Sami people and fresh food normally prepared over a crackling fire.
As the seventh largest country in Europe with a population of just 5.5 million there is plenty of space, most of which is in the Arctic Circle. As you move further north the more remote it becomes and the more the light pollution gives way to the wonder of the Northern Lights. If you are looking for an adventure that exposes you to the wonders of Lapland then this is the holiday for you and your family.
This itinerary is designed to offer the whole family a unique opportunity to experience life in the Arctic from skiing at Finland’s largest ski resort to trying your hand at dog sledding. This trip is about exploration and understanding how a culture has materialised working with the harshness of the Arctic environment and developing a lifestyle that is both unique and fascinating.
