3 & 4 nights in Northern Lapland
Our long years of operating in Lapland have taught us that there are some clients who simply cannot get enough of the sheer exhilaration that a snowmobile provides. And so, we have designed a break guaranteed to get their pulses racing.
This three or four-night trip includes two wind-in-the hair excursions that will give you ample opportunity to hone your snowmobile driving skills amid the snowscapes of True Lapland. The two-hour Northern Lights Snowmobile Safari offers a magical evening at the controls of your own snowmobile, crossing frozen lakes and silent forests in search of the Lights, but it is the full-day Snowmobile Adventure that will really introduce you to the beauty of Lapland.
Additional excursions can also be added to make your adventure into the wild truly special.
Please note this tour is only available for those with a full driver's licence.

Arctic Star Hotel
Situated on the outskirts of Swedish Karesuando, the Arctic Star is a traditional and friendly hotel offering superb views over both the majestic Muonio River and the Kaarevaara fell.

Whilst simple and comfortable, the hotel has recently undergone a programme of modernisation and has all the essentials you need for a good stay including an open plan bar and dining area. The rooms are simple and cosy, with room upgrades available. You may also be interested in the Davvi Arctic Lodge, located on the Finnish side of Karesuando.

Davvi Arctic Lodge
The Davvi Arctic Lodge is a charming, simple hotel set on a quiet, secluded hillside in the border-village of Karesuando. The beautiful restaurant, its circular design inspired by the shape of a Sami reindeer corral, is the hotel’s centrepiece and from here you can enjoy panoramic views over the snow-covered hillside to Swedish Lapland located just across the border.
Deep in the heart of True Lapland, and located on the official Northern Lights route, Karesuando offers once-in-life-time Arctic experiences without the crowds. For those looking to stay in the Swedish side of the village we also offer Northern Light stays at the Arctic Star hotel.
Karesuando is a twin village located on both sides of the border between Sweden and Finland (Karesuvanto) with a population of just over 1,000. Situated approx 300km north of the Arctic Circle and located amid majestic, undisturbed and imposing scenery, Karesuando is home to Sweden's most northerly church. The village is set on the edge of a vast wilderness where beauty, nature and wildlife abound. From the hill Kaare-vaara you have a fantastic view of Sweden,Finland, Norway and the mountain Pältsa.
