Romantic Holidays in Lapland

A land of unforgettable winter landscapes, pure isolation and magical experiences, there are few places as suited to a romantic holiday as the wilderness that is Lapland. When it comes to escaping the hustle and bustle of daily life for a bit of alone time, it doesn’t get much better than travelling to the Arctic.

By day strike out into the snowy forests and frozen fells on reindeer-pulled sleds or on a husky safari, and by night cosy up in a glass-roofed igloo to drink in the majesty of the Northern Lights – Lapland isn’t a destination restricted to family holidays, it’s also the perfect destination for just you and a loved one.

This wild region of Finland represents escapism and privacy for your romantic getaway. Far from large cities and light pollution, this last true wilderness in Europe is easily accessible and can grant you that magical feeling of truly getting away from it all, so that as you cruise across the dark, snowy landscape by heated sled under the glow of the Northern Lights, you really can feel as though it is just the two of you.

Throw in the magic that comes in with Christmas holidays in Lapland, and you have the ideal romantic destination for a break for two.

Romantic Adventures in a Magical Landscape

Lapland, a stunning region located in the northernmost part of Finland, is the perfect destination for couples looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and enjoy a romantic holiday.

Surrounded by breathtaking landscapes of snow-covered forests, frozen lakes, and rolling hills, Lapland is a winter wonderland that promises to bring you and your significant other closer together. Throw all this natural beauty under the ethereal spectacle of the Northern Lights, and you have the romantic destination of your dreams.

Combine thrilling activities in the cold, crisp air with cosy meals for two by the fireplace and a warm glass-roofed cabin, where you can drink in the spectacle of the aurora from the comfort of your own bed, and you have yourself the ideal region for a romantic holiday that will live long in the memory.

Where to go on a romantic holiday in Lapland

For couples who want to time their romantic getaway with a Christmas holiday in Lapland, where better to look than the official home of Santa Claus, Rovaniemi. Stay in a beautiful Arctic treehouse or a glass igloo in the wilderness, and enjoy Christmas for two in truly beautiful natural settings.

For couples into their skiing, Levi is the ideal location to visit, as visitors can combine husky safaris and reindeer rides with a visit to the nearby downhill ski resort. Of course, all whilst enjoying the views of endless snow-covered forests and distant hills.

And for those on the hunt for that true feeling of wilderness, look no further than Saariselkä, the furthest north and smallest of the three resorts, where a couple of days spent can feel like a lifetime away from the routine of ordinary life. As you snowshoe out to a wilderness camp by a frozen lake and watch the Northern Lights from beside a campfire, you will truly feel as if you have gotten away from it all.
