And here too you will discover a host of winter activities and experiences that will leave you exhilarated, recharged and eager to return.

A quaint little Lappish village perched on the banks of a frozen river, deep inside the Arctic Circle, Karesuando provides a tranquil, picturesque and unspoiled backdrop for your Arctic activities. The main village sits on the Swedish side of the river Muonio, home to the Arctic Star hotel whilst the warm and welcoming Davvi Arctic Lodge is situated on a fellside just into Finland. The village has an attractive church - the most northerly in Sweden - as well as a handful of local shops and amenities.
In the farthest northern reaches of Finland, Kilpisjarvi is a new destination for 2018. Situated in the heart of some of Finland’s tallest and most imposing fells, the area is steeped in myth and magic. Sámi tribes of old would light fires to the God of Thunder atop the fallen giant of Saana, whose body lies as the Saana fell, his love Malla creates the adjacent fell and her tears form Lake Kilpisjarvi according to local legend. Kilpisjarvi also plays host to Kolmen valtakunnan rajapyykki, or three country cairn, the point where the borders of Finland, Norway & Sweden meet.
