The Christmas Cottages have been built so you can make the most of the great outdoors. Each property is less than a 5-minute walk from the slopes.After a day in the snow, the cottages offer a warm welcome home. Each one comes with its own sauna, where you can thaw out. They’re all decorated cosily, too, with soft sofas and thickly-blanketed beds. 300m from the slopes|Short taxi journey to city centre | Family Snow Park and cross-country skiing nearby | A 15-minute walk to the mini-market.
You can expect all cottages here to come with a kitchenette and sauna. 1-bedroom cottages are available, or bigger groups can opt for a 2-bedroom cottage.
Rovaniemi is a 10-minute drive away. It lives up to its reputation as the capital of Lapland with its collection of lively bars and clubs.
Holidays in Lapland are all about the daytime activities on offer and fun in the snow, but the après ski is just as important. Even though your cabin has its own kitchenette there’s also a restaurant open for breakfast and dinner, ideal if you just don’t want to cook. And after dinner you can head to the bar for a warming hot chocolate by the fire.

Rovaniemi is the capital of Finnish Lapland. It’s a small, compact city that comes with a real buzz of modern shopping malls, lively bars and restaurants serving up everything from traditional cooking to French cuisine. It’s also got the rather big draw of having Santa Claus on hand – not to mention Arctic wilderness that’s perfect for snowsports and sleigh rides. It’s Christmas all year round at Santa Claus Village, about 8 kilometres north of Rovaniemi on the Arctic Circle. It’s a novelty to send greetings from the Post Office here, and there’s the chance to learn about the history of Christmas traditions.
