The possibilities for other activities are so varied that this country gives excellent choices for those looking for a little more than just a ski holiday experience.
Have you ever fancied watching the Northern lights from a glass-topped igloo or a snowmobile safari? Have you ever been on a husky or large dog sled ride? How about a reindeer safari? And of course if you go in late November or early December you can’t miss the obligatory trip to see the real home of the real Santa!
Most popular ski area’s in Finland
Levi is one of the most popular resorts in Lapland Finland as it has the most extensive ski area in Finland.
Yllas has stunning scenery and is only a few kilometres from Levi – you can combine the two lift passes to get more piste bashing done. There are a variety of excursions you can add on to your trip such as snowmobile safaris, snowshoeing, or perhaps a Northern lights walk.
Saariselka has a smaller ski area (12km) then the other main resorts in Finland, however, it does have lots of other safaris and excursions to choose from.
Cross country skiers will be in their element with 230km of prepared trails.
Après ski in Finland is quiet, if you are a party animal the après is centred around your hotel bar – and will be pretty sedated.
Finland for Families
Perfect – especially if you combine with a trip to see Santa.
