Occupying one third of Finland, the picturesque snow covered landscapes of Lapland supply the perfect winter get away. You can indulge in a wealth of arctic activities whilst being surrounded by the enchanting scenery. Watch the Northern Lights from your glass igloo or cosy up by a fire in your private log cabin, for a trip to remember. Here, we share how to sprinkle some additional magic on the trip by flying there on one of our private jets to create an once-in-a-lifetime holiday.
A unique experience
What makes Lapland so special is its natural wilderness, which is mostly undisturbed by humans. The small towns and popular ski resorts sit right on the edge of the tranquil and untouched surroundings. Fly over the expansive sheets of bright white snow in one of our private jets for a truly unique experience.
Discover the Arctic Circle
This is where the Lapland experience becomes even more unique, and is where the region can really deliver as a ‘bucket list’ holiday. The Arctic Circle runs 66 degrees north of the Equator, meaning the sun will stay continuously above the horizon for 24 hours in the summer and below the horizon for 24 hours in the winter. The Arctic Circle travels through the village of Juoksenski, making it popular with tourists who travel to see the Northern Lights during the 24-hour darkness (also known as the Polar Nights).
The iconic Santa Claus Village
You can cross the magical Arctic Circle at the iconic Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi – The ‘official hometown’ of Santa Claus. You can meet Santa himself and his reindeers – of course a much-loved Christmas activity for the kids. If that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, they can also go on a ‘snowmobile’ safari (suitable for adults too) or go on a reindeer ride in Santa’s backyard.
The Lappish culture of dog-sledding
Immerse into the Lappish culture and experience the thrill of ‘dog-sledding’. 200km inside the Arctic Circle, you can ride on a husky sledding tour, suitable for all ages. Offering a real taste of the wilderness with the added bonus of good chances to see the spectacular Northern Lights.
Get on the slopes
Lapland’s favourite Ski Resort - Levi - is the largest and most popular. More often than not, the slopes are dusted with freshly fallen snow. Being just a 15 minute distance to Kittila Airport in the village of Sirkka, it is great for anyone who can’t wait to hit the slopes.
Cosy up in the Christmas Chalets
Lapland is the ideal location for a cosy Christmas get away. Stay in a luxury private log cabin, situated in the heart of Rovaniemi. You can treat yourself to the services of a private chef who will supply warm dishes to replenish you after a long day in the snow.
