Northern lights, Finnish saunas, reindeer safaris and reliable snow make Lapland's ski resorts unique. Team the extraordinary experiences with a choice of resorts unlike any other in Europe, and you have the recipe for a ski holiday of epic proportions.
Skiing in Finnish Lapland is different to what you might have experienced in other European ski resorts, with pistes set on fells rather than mountains. And while you might be concerned about the fewer hours of daylight this far north, the popular ski resorts remedy this with flood-lit slopes to ensure your day of skiing is extended well after dark. The latitude has benefits too; regular sightings of the northern lights between December and February, and of course exceptional levels of snowfall.
You'll discover that skiing holidays to Finnish ski resorts boast quiet slopes. The colder climate of the Arctic Circle guarantees fresh powder, with a longer ski season than other short-haul ski resorts. Cosy log cabins with their own private saunas provide a different kind of ski accommodation, and there is plenty to do for non-skiers in your group and to enhance your own ski holiday away from the slopes.
Countless activities during the winter season include: reindeer sleigh rides and reindeer farm visits; a night in a thermal glass igloo or aurora cabin to see the northern lights; snowmobile and husky safaris through the unspoiled landscapes; and of course families can team their Lapland ski holiday with a Christmas experience to see Santa Claus, visiting a theme park and meeting his elves.
At Inspiring Travel we can tailor-make a holiday to Lapland for a unique ski break. In destinations like Levi – one of Finland’s best ski resorts which suits skiers of all abilities and ages - we'll book you the best accommodation close to the slopes, with direct flights from regional airports across the UK taking around 3 hours and 30 minutes.
So for a luxury ski holiday to Finland that goes beyond the floodlit slopes and quiet runs, with opportunities for northern lights viewing, Santa Claus experiences and Arctic activities in this scenic winter wonderland, Inspiring Travel can create your bespoke Lapland ski break.
