See the frozen North and Northern Lights in style from the new architecturally edgy Star Arctic Hotel on top of Saariselkä's Kaunispää Mountain 270 km north of the Arctic Circle in Finnish Lapland. Every room has a large glass window facing out over the forested landscape from which you can (hopefully) catch the Northern Lights dancing in the night sky whilst relaxing in warmth and comfort. Saariselka, Europe's northernmost ski resort, has over 200km of maintained triple lane ski tracks two of which are for classic style and the other for free style. As importanlty it's 270 miles north of the Arctic Circle making it one of the most accesible places on earth to see the Northern Lights. And apart from couch potatoing in your glazed hotel room you can search for them by car, snowmobile, reindeer, or husky.

1st Day UK – Ivalo

1st Day UK – Ivalo fly with Finnair to Ivalo in Finnish Lapland via Helsinki. Group transfer to the Arctic Star Hotel and check in to your chosen room type. Check in and sled your luggage to your Cabin Igloo with its own sauna, open fireplace and twin bedded glass roofed bedroom. Take buffet supper in the hospitality building’s restaurant and return to sleep under the stars (well under glass under the stars!)

2nd & 3rd Days Safari Choice

after breakfast take the safari of your choice picked from our portfolio (see options and prices opposite). From short ones or all day ones snowmobile, reindeer or husky. Whilst you can book on the spot it’s best to confirm at least the ones you really want to do beforehand to ‘avoid disappointment’ as the ‘speak your weight ‘machine voices have it. And no we don’t speak with forked tongue – you’ll pay the same. Each evening take supper and then retire to sleep under the stars (or at least under glass under the stars) and watch the Northern Lights dancing hand in hand with Cassiopeia.
