Twixmas Itinerary

 

 

Day 1 - 27th December 

 

UK to Harriniva

Flying out to Kittilä in the wilds of Finnish Lapland, you’ll be met at the airport by an included transfer, bringing you through snowy forests to your pine-clad accommodation. Here, you’ll pick up your thermal clothing and begin your menu of full-board dining with a buffet dinner. Expect both local favourites and international classics. As throughout your stay, you’ll also be able to warm up with complimentary hot drinks and access to the sauna – available throughout your stay. Be sure to also keep your eyes on the sky, for the appearance of the Northern Lights.

Day 2 - 28th December

 

Reindeer sleigh ride, ice-hotel lunch & dogsledding

After a hearty breakfast, you’ll begin your series of included excursions with a visit to a local reindeer farm. Following your included transfer, you’ll have the chance to feed these majestic beasts and try your hand at lassoing before you enjoy your very own reindeer-drawn sleigh ride. Then, it’s time for another trip highlight. Over your visit to a dramatically carved ice village you’ll be treated to lunch, served among delightfully carved ice sculptures. It’s the perfect preamble to your next activity – dogsledding. After meeting the all-too-friendly pups, you’ll be handed the reins as you mush out into the wilderness.

Day 3 - 29th December

 

Snowmobiling & Northern Lights evening

This morning is given over to the adrenaline thrill of snowmobiling. After receiving some expert tuition, you’ll plunge out along snowy trails, with the roar of the engine cutting through the wintery silence. You’ll then have some time to rest up after lunch, perhaps heading out for a forest walk into next-door Sweden or booking onto a private hot-tub soak down by the river (supplement applies). Whatever you choose, you’ll cap off the day by strapping on snowshoes. Your guide will bring you out into the forest, building a campfire and pointing your eyes skywards for the appearance of the Northern Lights. The provided hot drinks are a nice touch.
