Imagine spending your days in the crisp outdoor air, racing along behind huskies and then curling up in front of a toasty fire in a log cabin with your family, recounting the best moments of the day, excited for what adventures the next day holds.
Finland is the perfect destination for your family holiday. The more adventurous can try their hand at outdoor activities, such as snowmobiling or dog sledding, while those who like to take life a little slower can settle down for an afternoon of ice fishing.
Most journeys to Finland will start and finish in Helsinki, and here you’ll get a taste for city life visiting museums and galleries and indulging in Nordic cuisine. You can then head north and settle into a cosy cabin in Finnish Lapland. When it comes to exciting outdoor experiences, expert guides will be on hand to give you all the safety information and instructions you need. There is plenty to keep adventurers of all ages entertained.
At the right time of year, you can venture out into the cold winter’s night on reindeer sleds and go in search of the Northern Lights. In fact, there are plenty of opportunities to get up close to reindeer in this magical land. Visit a reindeer farm in Muotka and learn about Sami culture and what goes into taking care of the gentle creatures.
Another exciting way to see the beautiful scenery is on a sled pulled by a team of huskies, and if you’re brave enough you can even take a turn driving them as you mush past snow-covered forests. After a thrilling time, you can all spend some time lavishing the hard-working pups with lots of well-deserved attention.
For the littlest in your party, if you plan to visit in December one of the highlights is bound to be the chance to meet the real Santa Claus. Climb onto a snowmobile and keep an eye out for elves and reindeer as you head into the magical forest.
