Finnish Lapland is known for its skiing, other winter activities and the special Northern Lights which are also known as the ‘Aurora Borealis’, displaying amazing colours and pattern in the winter sky. This Christmas holidaymakers can spend the festive holidays in one of Finland’s two resorts; Iso-Syote and Ruka.
Iso-Syote is a great resort for those seeking alternative activities that appeal to all family members. Activities include reindeer safaris, ice fishing and spending the night in a real snow Igloo. There is also an opportunity for night snowmobiling to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. Spend time relaxing with the family in the three-star Hotel Iso-Syote from £739 per person for seven nights. The hotel’s facilities provide customers with indoor swimming pool; sauna, bar, lounge and children’s play area.
The Santa Adventure and Lapland Activity weeks Crystal Ski has created allow customers to book everything they want to do in one easy-to-book holiday package. The accommodation available is the four-star Aurinkorinne Apartments located in Ruka, an unspoilt resort just south of the Arctic Circle. Ruka is a great resort for first-time skiers, but the slopes are also suitable for skiers of all levels of experience. For the more expert skiers there are steep red and black runs on the north and western side of the mountain. There is off-piste skiing available and even a freestyle area and mogul field.
Families wanting to take part in the activity weeks available in Ruka can book the Santa Adventure Week. The package includes 4 days of activities; snowmobile safari, visit to a Husky farm, meet Santa and be welcomed by his elves at his secret cottage and finally, finish the week with a visit to a reindeer farm. Prices for this package start at £795 per person.
Whilst still staying in Ruka, the Lapland Activity Week provides five days of adventure for the family. The activities allow customers to experience snowmobiling, visits to Husky and reindeer farms, ice fishing and cross country skiing. Prices for this package start from £629 per person.
All activity week packages include flights, transfers, accommodation, in-resort rep and the selected activities. To find out more information or to book a ski holiday to Finland call Crystal Ski on 0871 236 9501 or visit their website.
