Holiday Parks - Log Cabins, Lodges & Glamping in Lapland
Finnish Lapland is a region of northern Finland within the Arctic Circle that is blessed with extreme natural beauty. From the magical Northern Lights visible betwwen the end of August until April to 24 hour daylight under the Midnight Sun which stays above the horizon for over 70 consecutive days, Finnish Lapland has starkly contrasting winters and summers. This is one of the reasons why this northern territory is popular throughout the year with the holiday parks attracting tourists from near and afar who like the sense of adventure, wilderness and above all, the freedom to connect with nature.
Being within the Arctic Circle, Finnish Lapland is a special place to visit and no more so if you choose to say in one of the log cabins or glamping pods on the holiday parks. You get the chance to experience wilderness under the stars and see nature at first hand. With activities throughout the year for all the family, this wonderful area is on a par with the remote areas of Alsaka and Canada in terms of being unspoilt by mass tourism.
Lapland’s versatile ski resorts offer downhill enthusiasts everything from kids’ runs to black slopes, and snow parks to backcountry exploring. The season starts in late October, and high season spans from February until the snow melts in early May. There are 75 ski resorts in Finland but the "big 4" are all in Lapland...
Apart from skiing, you can try husky rides , ice climbing or for some adrenaline fuelled fun, try a snowmobile safari.
