The structure & approach of this trip

We work together with a number of Resorts in Finnish Lapland . In this example we assume the Vaattunki Wilderness Resort, just 18KM north of Rovaniemi. Know that people from all over the world are vying for a spot in one of the resorts in that region. That is why we also keep in touch with a number of resorts so that we can always offer you the best options. The resorts we choose within our portfolio all have an excellent reputation , a super professional team and a very high level of service.
Their view on sustainability is also important to us .

1st day Rovaniemi
You arrive at Rovaniemi airport in the evening.
Depending on the times, you can travel to the Resort by shuttle or taxi in about half an hour.

The Vaattunki Resort welcomes you!
We have chosen a room with sleeping loft, including toilet and shower in 'Stella Cabin' for this example. There is another cheaper option in this Resort & there are a number of more luxurious options available. We will be happy to inform you about this as soon as we start a conversation.

The Northern Lights are everywhere
Who knows, you might be 'received' by the northern lights when you get out on the first evening. We have been that lucky before. A very special extra when that happens. Take a good look around!

Experience the week
Your week starts with a winter safari with reindeer sleigh. A romantic start :)
Furthermore, your week is packed with very fun activities. See the daily program.
