The Northern Lights
The magical wonder that is the Northern Lights, many people spend years chasing them. The Arctic Circle in Lapland is one of the best places to possibly view them but don't forget there are no guarantees.
The Husky safari is a truly magical experience as you are whisked through the snow covered forests by your team of eager four legged friends. You're provided with specialist clothing, just as well as it can get very cold!
Lapland Winter Activities
Lapland is a breathtaking, fairytale setting with plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained from saunas and hot tubs to husky sledding and a Traditional Lappish dinner with a plunge into an ice lake!
Enjoy a 3 course dinner in the nearby Ice restaurant, sat on an ice chair and an ice table. Enjoy a pre-drink at the ice bar and maybe a shot in an ice glass to warm you up. A truly unique experience!
“Untravelled Paths made everything so straightforward and being able to sleep in a glass Igloo under the Northern Lights was simply unforgettable - a truly magical experience!”
Ana MacCarrick - Guest
Go in search of the remarkable “Aurora Borealis”, more commonly known as the Northern Lights. Should you be fortunate enough to see them, then what better way to watch them dancing across the winter sky but from the warmth of your own bed? Sleeping in a Glass Igloo is a once in a lifetime experience, but there is plenty more on offer in this genuine, winter wonderland including husky sledding, traditional Lappish dinner which includes an ice lake plunge, hot tub, saunas, dinner in an ice restaurant and much more. Oh and don’t forget this is the home of Father Christmas who is available to visit throughout December and the beginning of January!

WHERE YOU'RE GOING
Lapland is a remote, relatively untouched territory located in the Arctic Circle that offers one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. It’s impossible not to be taken in by the natural beauty of the pristine blankets of snow that cover the pine forests and frozen lakes. The temperatures in peak winter can reach very frosty temperatures—some way below zero—so it’s best to wrap up warm and keep yourself busy. Fortunately, there is plenty to keep you occupied whether you’re wanting to get active or simply relax.
"Naturally everyone wants to see the Northern Lights but there are no guarantees. Lapland is well worth visiting regardless which is worth remembering if you aren't lucky enough to see them."
James Chisnall - Untravelled Paths
Be sure to check the weather forecast before you travel as, unsurprisingly it can get very cold in the arctic circle, it was -32 on our last visit! So proper winter gear is likely to be required.
Aurora Borealis App
There are various apps which monitor the Aurora Borealis. We provide the best for you, it is surprisingly accurate so it will let you know in advance if the lights are going to appear.
Try Avoid the Full Moon
Clear, dark skies are the perfect conditions for the Northern Lights to appear, so avoid full moons if possible. The full moon won't restrict you seeing the lights, but it won't be as clear.
Scandinavia is expensive and Finland is no exception. It's best to acknowledge this and avoid comparing the value of everything to what you'd receive back home.
