• Noorderlichtreis Fins Lapland met verblijf in een traditionele houten log house cabin.
1 of 4

7 days Finnish Lapland & 1 day Rovaniemi

Maximum chance of seeing the Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis

Of course, it all depends on the conditions that nature imposes on us. The activity on the sun, to start with, determines how much chance we have here on Earth of seeing the Aurora Borealis. The other most determining factor is the weather over Finnish Lapland. What about the cloud cover? No one can give you an answer to that so far in advance. Luck is therefore also a very important factor in the 'hunt for the Northern Lights'. The last factor is your own endurance. How many evening hours can you spend on the search and how well can you find it with the local temperatures? It is up to us and our guides to support you as best as possible.

Flight + rental car with stay in authentic log cabin

With this trip you have a great chance of seeing the Northern Lights. I'll also be happy to tell you why. Firstly, the location we have chosen is particularly suitable. We experienced this ourselves there and the origin of the many photos here on the site is exactly here. We simply take photographs with a mobile phone, handheld. Of course, this can also be done much more professionally.

See for yourself, one of the photos below was taken by us in Saarisalkä, the region where you will stay during this trip. Optimal opportunities to experience this yourself, as you can see.

The structure & approach of this trip

Of course, staying in a log cabin has its pros and cons. We assume that you like to do things independently and like to drive through the landscape. Self-reliance is an important factor because you will be staying in a fairly remote location. The less light from others, the better your chances of seeing the Northern Lights.

1st day Rovaniemi
You arrive at the airport in the evening. You pick up the rental car and then you don't want to drive into the night. After all, you enter a completely different world with a completely different driving experience. The overnight stay in Rovaniemi not only offers safety. There is also the chance to do an errand the next morning & possibly. (briefly) visit Santa Village. Keep in mind that it gets dark early again and the 260 KM ride. will demand all your attention.

Arrive at your Log Cabin
You will arrive at the Cabin with a first set of impressions. It will already be dark and orientation in the dark is a challenge. Take your time for everything and enjoy the evening and, if possible, the sauna straight away.

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 Northern Lights safari with an experienced local guide. Furthermore, your week is packed with very fun activities. See the daily program.

This log house cabin is very authentic. You have it all to yourself and you immediately feel at home in this wonderful environment. Built in a trapper style, you have the feeling of a cozy hunter's cabin in the deep woods, but you actually drive your car to the front door. On the way you did the shopping and filled your refrigerator. There's a good chance that it's colder outside than in that refrigerator :)

TIP : When you go shopping, buy some nice things, candles and something tasty for the late evening.

This location is one of the best places to see the Northern Lights . This also applies to the dancing Aurora Borealis. A phenomenon that we were able to witness exactly at that location. Grab your chance! In our opinion, one of the best places in the world to experience this.

Siide saami cultuur museum te Inari Fins Lapland - Bezoek dit museum tijdens uw reis Noorderlicht met log cabin dat u boekt bij reisbureau Holmstock Travel

Day trip Inari, Nellim

You will visit the world famous town of Inari. Not only tourists from all over the world stay here, the Finnish Saami also have their Parliament and their Siida culture museum here.

Thanks to the rental car you are particularly flexible. This is one of the big differences compared to an 'organized package trip to a Resort'. At your own pace to Inari for some shopping, groceries and a visit to the Siida culture museum . Afterwards you could continue to Nellim . That route is a bit more exciting because the terrain is a bit hillier. You decide for yourself whether this will be a suitable ride for you. There is a large resort in Nellim where you can go. you can use the restaurant and it is gradually becoming evening, so there is always a chance of seeing the Northern Lights here too.

Day 1 - Flight Amsterdam - Rovaniemi

You fly from Amsterdam to Rovaniemi where you arrive around 9:00 PM. Then you pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to the nearby Motelli Rovaniemi . Because it is only a relatively short stay here, we keep this location simple for the sake of costs, hence the choice of Motelli Rovaniemi. Easily accessible, easy parking, privacy and a sauna .

Day 2 - Rovaniemi - Saariselkä / 260 KM.

Thanks to the rental car you are now mobile and free in all your movements. You can choose to do a bit of ' Santa Village ' in the morning, but don't linger too long! Today you drive 260KM on icy and/or snowy roads. Drive slowly and above all enjoy the surroundings.
TIP: Also do an errand in the morning so that you can fill your refrigerator upon arrival. Think of Rovaniemi or Sodankylä .

Day 5 - Excursion Inari - Siida & Nellim

You drive to Inari with your rental car. On the way you pass the town of Ivalo. Definitely a place to have a look around. Both Ivalo and Inari invite for shopping and/or a cup of coffee. In Inari there is, among other things: a fairly large, well-stocked souvenir shop.
North of Inari, just after crossing the Juutuanjoki River, you will find the Siida Saami Culture Museum. After visiting the museum you could continue to the hamlet of Nellim. There is a large resort there where you can possibly stay. could use the restaurant. Here you can also visit the famous wooden church of Nellim.
In this remote place you have good chances of seeing the Northern Lights, but keep in mind that driving here requires extra attention and that the route to Nellim is not too easy. Also keep in mind that you still have to go all the way back to your cabin. You may not be 'back' until very late if you also choose to drive to Nellim.

Day 6 - Safari with the Reindeer Sled

Maybe it would be nice to sleep in a bit and start the day quietly after yesterday's long day. This afternoon you will enjoy a pleasant excursion . The guide takes you to a reindeer farm and from that farm you go on safari with the reindeer sled .

Day 7 - Meet the Huskies

Today the guide will take you to a nearby husky farm. Nice to chat with those cheerful guys and absorb some knowledge about mushing. You will go on a 5KM dog sled ride to experience what it is like to slide through the snow with a team of huskies.

Day 8 - Saariselkä - Rovaniemi / 260 KM

You get up as early as possible to make the drive to Rovaniemi as relaxed as possible. If time permits upon arrival in Rovaniemi, you could make a short visit to the Santa Village .
