4 days - Short stay to search for Northern Lights in Finnish Lapland

One of our favourite tours to see the Northern Lights in Finland. Harriniva Hotel is located 230kms north of the Arctic Circle in the Finnish part of Lapland and offers a great range of winter activities. A comfortable Scandinavian style accommodation combined with a wellness centre with a wide range of therapies and treatments, offers you a great weekend getaway with an added bonus of the Northern Lights.

During the day time you get to know huskies and reindeers and at night time our guides will take you out on snowshoes as well as snowmobiles to 'hunt' for the Northern Lights. This short tour is ideal for 'beginners' and families with kids.
