About this holiday

Our destination for our New Year celebrations is the Wild Taiga region of Finland. The region is a wonderful destination for winter activities (with eyes peeled for the Northern Lights) and famed for its wildlife, some of which is now either extinct or incredibly rare elsewhere in Europe. Its geography is dominated by hills, forests, lakes and rivers, which are home to moose, reindeer, and large carnivores including the brown bear, wolverine, grey wolf and lynx.

Snow action

From our perfect winter wonderland setting, we set out on our first day to explore the Taiga Forest and frozen lake by snow-shoe. Our guided walk will not only let us take in the natural beauty of the area but we will also learn a new skill. We spend our second day in beautiful Lapland discovering the best way to travel in Finland – by sleigh! Our taster sessions will give you a chance to try out horse, husky and snowmobiles.

Our third activity day is a switch from horses to horse power with a day of snowmobiling! Together we will drive along Taiga Forest, stopping by an open campfire for a refreshing and warming drink. All these activities are part of your exhilarating trip, including use of skis, kick-sledges and sledges for the whole week.

After all our daytime activities, what we’ll need are nice relaxed evenings and that’s exactly what’s on offer at our hotel! On returning from our days of adventure you have access to the on site sauna and Jacuzzi to relax your aching muscles. Or brave the cold for a lake-side sauna – immersion in hot water followed by a leap into the lake; not for the fainthearted!

Party like its 2018!

Our New Year celebrations will bring in 2018 with a bang! Our hotel will host a Gala Dinner, but before the party starts you have chance to look into what the coming year holds for you with a Finnish New Years tradition of tin casting with ‘Ms Fortune-teller’. The party continues with a DJ and fireworks to mark the moment we enter 2018.
