Northern Lights and Winter Activities in Finland
The Many Firsts of a Nordic Winter Journey - What would you do if you had a day to relax in the midst of the winter in Lapland, Finland?
Waiting for the Northern Lights to show? Holidays to Finland in winter circle around waiting for these magical lights to appear so whilst you wait, we at 50 Degrees North definitely suggest filling your days up with lots of fun activities.
What would you do if you had a day to relax in the midst of the winter in Lapland, Finland? Go for souvenir shopping and enjoy a good book with cup of steaming hot tea? Try cross-country skiing for the first time in your life before boosting the adrenaline levels in an ice karting race? Enjoy the soft heat of a riverside sauna and right after, plunge into a freezing cold opening in the ice for a traditional Finnish winter swim? Or just lay back in a hot outdoor Jacuzzi with your beanie on and relish the wintery scenery around you?
For our tours to Finland, we fill your days with activity packed days - such as reindeer sledding, local culture and long snowmobile rides. Harriniva hotels in Muonio, Finland, offer lots of “first time in my life!” activities.
Each day promises stunning arctic scenery, and the night has many planning to stay up sky-gazing in the hope of northern lights. Fingers crossed, the Aurora activity is strong when you visit, but be warned clouds can play games with enthuasitic Northern Lights viewers, only revealing just small beautiful moments of the dancing lights every now and then.
After each day of fun, put the warm layers on again and head into the night, we wish you luck!
