Rovaneimi - Aurora short Break at the Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge
Sitting in a pristine landscape, complete with a frozen river and dense forest, the Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge is a true retreat, deep within nature. What’s even better, you’ll only need to travel around 20 minutes from both the airport and the city of Rovaniemi to reach your Arctic escape.
Choosing from traditional Finnish log cabins or stylish Panorama Huts, you’ll enjoy the quiet sounds of Lapland in this amazing Northern Lights viewing area. Fortunate guests may see Mother Nature’s great display from the comfort of their accommodation, but we have included two dedicated Aurora hunts to help provide you with the best possible chance of witnessing an Aurora. With expert guides leading the way, you’ll search by sleigh and on foot. For an extra special evening, the resort also offers an optional Northern Lights flight where you can see the lights from a truly unique vantage point high above the clouds. This is an exceptional experience and details can be found in the ‘Personalise’ section of the holiday page.
The daylight hours should not be disregarded, however. We have a range of optional wilderness activities to really show off the beautiful and vast landscape. Travel like the locals as you ride your snowmobile to meet some of the country’s most-loved animals. Reindeer encounters and dog sled safaris are both possibilities here, along with a range of other unforgettable experiences. See the Personalise section for details.
At the lodge, both the reception and the restaurant area are just a two minutes’ walk from any accommodation, offering buffet-style Lappish food with a modern touch; you can fuel up before you head out on your adventures. For those wanting to soak up some more of the Finnish culture and relax even further, head to the large riverside sauna or hot pool with views of your stunning surroundings.
This holiday delivers the charm of Lapland, excellent Northern Lights viewing potential and a wealth of optional Arctic experiences, all within just three nights! It’s an ideal short break escape.
