The name alone conjures up visions of excitement, adventure and adrenaline. However, the Arctic Circle can be as action-filled or as serene as you desire. Located 160 miles above the Arctic Circle, our main hub for Arctic adventure is located in a remote border-village called Karesuando. This unique area is at the very heart of True Lapland, and you certainly won’t find a commercialised Santa’s grotto here in this unspoilt region. Karesuando is unique in many ways, not least because it straddles two countries, Finland and Sweden, divided by the River Muonio. It is also home to the Sami, Europe’s last indigenous people. Reindeer farming is central to the traditional Sami way of life and in Karesuando reindeer outnumber people ten to one.
The Arctic has a number of activities on offer, from fast-paced snowmobile safaris for adrenaline-seeking grooms, to trips through the forest by husky-sled and reindeer herding experiences for nature-loving brides. Alternatively, you can go back to basics and simply enjoy each other’s company without the distractions of television and day-to-day life getting in the way. After all, the glistening snow that blankets the village has a tendency to bring out the inner child in you - from tobogganing to snowman making, you’ll certainly enjoy play time!

Arctic Whale Watching
Mid-November – January
3 or 4 nights
From £1,029 per person
Flights | Half board accommodation | Transfers | Whale watching trip | Husky safari | Northern Lights snowmobile safari
An absolute must for nature lovers, this action-packed minimoon sees you whale watching in Norway by day and Aurora hunting on Swedish snowmobiles by night. The tour is beautifully rounded off with a trip to meet Finland’s most loved animals, the huskies.
Undoubtedly, the highlight of this trip is the truly breath-taking sight of humpback whales feeding on vast shoals of herring in the magnificent fjords to the east of Tromso. As you gaze out upon the waters of the fjord as newly-weds, maybe a pod of orcas will bless your union by making a memorable appearance.
Once on the brink of extinction, with their population reduced by almost 90 per cent, the humpback whales have been steadily growing since new laws were introduced in 1966. Now, the humpback whale is the species that most commonly frequents these Arctic waters and sightings of these colossal mammals are extremely high. In fact, last winter our whale watching trips had a 100% success rate. The look on your other half’s face once they have caught sight of that unmistakable fin rising above the water will be one you cherish forever.
Ensure your honeymoon is high drama, and for all the right reasons, with this fascinating whale watching experience.
