What you'll do

Welcome to Wilderness

We’ll pick you up directly from Ivalo airport, and transfer you deep into the untouched, pristine Lappish wilderness to the Northern Lights Village.

We’ll show you to your home for the weekend, your cosy, warm cabin nestled in the Arctic forest and the snow-covered fir trees.

With any luck, on your very first night you’ll get to witness what you came for – the spectacular Northern Lights. Gaze in awe as the ethereal ribbons of light whisper their way through the atmosphere, then head back for your and watch them during your first evening in your luxurious, glass-topped cabin.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Explore Lapland's Beauty - Then Unwind

The morning excursion for day two of your romantic trip to the far north will take you deep into the snowy fells and forests, as you saddle up for a 4-hour snowmobile ride.

Explore the true back-of-beyond, on an exhilarating journey through stunning natural beauty, and return feeling satisfied and wearied after a morning of activity.

The perfect remedy for any tired, cold bones? An aroma or hot stone massage to soothe any aches or pains, and melt into true relaxation in this tranquil, isolated part of the world.

The evening is yours to enjoy. Either explore the site after another hearty dinner by a crackling log fire, or cosy up under a blanket and stare through your glass roof at the perfectly black night sky, hoping to catch a glimpse of the flickering tongues of fire.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Accommodation:

Northern Lights Village

The Aurora Cabins at the Northern Lights Village are a magical way to experience the wintry star-filled sky and the Northern Lights, while lying comfortably in the warm bed. The laser-heated glass-roof opens up into the northern sky, directly above the bed.

Get Out into Nature

In the morning, set off on a couples husky safari, getting up close and personal to these beautiful, hugely energetic dogs, exploring the wilderness as the locals have done for countless generations before. Head out on a one hour safari, before you spend two hours on the reindeer express in the afternoon.

Meet the animals that are so central to the landscape, and so vital to the survival of the indigenous population, then hiss through the pine forest in a sleigh pulled by the gentle beasts.

Then, that evening, it’s a different kind of journey, as the two of you are taken deep into the wilderness, pulled by a snowmobile, to hunker down in a heated sleigh and take in the incredible spectacle of the Northern Lights, surrounded by nature.

Activity timings may differ slightly, your confirmed schedule will be given to you upon check in.

Accommodation:

Northern Lights Village

The Northern Lights Village provides breakfast, lunch and dinner in their stylish restaurant.

Your Magical Weekend Complete

Wake up on your final morning here, hopefully blown away by the natural spectacle you witnessed last night.

Feeling rejuvenated and refreshed by the pure air, the time spent in nature and the extreme comfort you’ve enjoyed, head for a final breakfast.

Your stay sadly comes to an end at this point, and we’ll transfer you straight back to Ivalo airport.

We booked the 3 night, four day romantic package with an added activity to visit a Husky farm and it was truly spectacular. The temperatures were low but the cabins and restaurant are warm and they provide you with ski suits, gloves and boots for the activities. 10 minutes hot water in the shower is more than sufficient and the food was good with lots of home made soups, stews and vegetables which are perfect for the weather.
