    6 days - Gourmet food, boutique stays, Northern Lights and winter adventures

    Be immersed in a tiny lakeside village, just outside of Äkäslompolo, deep in Finnish Lapland surrounded by the peaceful old forests of the Pallas-Ylläs Nature Park. Staying at a small boutique hotel, enjoy getting to know the locals and join in some exhilarating winter activities like husky & reindeer sledding, ice fishing and snowmobiling. Ski and snowmobile tracks go practically from the front door, you can relax in the outdoor smoke sauna & hot tub and sit down to home cooked locally sourced food each evening.

    Then transfer to your glass igloo accommodation in the magical unspoilt nature of Finnish Lapland. Sleep under the Northern Lights, fingers crossed, in well-appointed glass igloos, complete with private kitchenettes, showers, and toilets. Dinner is a Lappish affair and is served daily in the glass-roofed restaurant.
