5 days - Independent Christmas tour to Finnish Lapland. Sleep in an Aurora Glass Cabin and enjoy winter activities.

Get ready for a White Christmas in a cozy, family run glass igloo resort near Ivalo, Finland. Your glass igloo is set alone in the woods - you can gaze up at the Arctic stars and hopefully the Northern Lights will dance above you.

Sauna and jacuzzi surrounded by snow and even dip in the icy waters of the lake with the local owners. As well as snowmobiling, reindeer sledding and husky safaris, activities like the free use of cross-country skis, ice-skates, toboggans, snowshoes and campfires keep the days full. In the evening, sit back with other guests in the cozy Kota restaurant and share the day's tales. On Christmas Eve, enjoy a special Santa program. This tour will sell out quickly.
