Short Break


Nestled in a valley surrounded by 7 fells, the village of Äkäslompolo is home to 400 residents 200km north of the Arctic Circle. Located on the doorstep of the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, Finland’s third largest national park, Äkäslompolo is enveloped by breath-taking scenery and is the perfect setting for Arctic adventure.

The Arctic Break is designed for adults offering longer safaris in groups of 6 to 8 persons. Search for the Northern Lights, ride into the National Forest with snowmobiles, mush your own team of huskies over 20km and try one of Finland’s favourite pastimes – cross country skiing. In December we offer this break with our direct flights with British Airways from London Heathrow. You can also step into the wild between January and April.
