Pre Christmas Celebrations 2022

Pre Christmas Celebrations 2022

We are approaching the end of the year fairly fast and all eyes are looking towards the upcoming winter season. Christmas Holiday is in everyone’s mind but before that the best way to tune yourself for a Christmas feeling is to have pre Christmas celebrations together with family, friends or your awesome team pushing through the last quarter. What would be a better way to do this than in northernmost Lapland?

Whether you look for activities on first snow for a smaller or larger group, Lapland North Destinations has you covered in all things necessary from accommodation, venues, experiences and dining options.

Everyone has been working more or less remotely but now finally we can gather together to enjoy social connections face to face. Have you heard of the Finnish saying that some great idea started from the sauna? It is a very true saying because the sense of space and peace gives your mind the opportunity to play around with ideas. Sauna is often the cherry on top of the cake to end a day filled with experiences and good food. You can find a great selection of Saunas in the area which you can book to your group only or purchase a ticket to join others in public sauna shifts. Many of the saunas offer either a hot tub or a jacuzzi. You might access the ice hole too in selected locations. You are able to find the best venues and dining options from our region for pre Christmas celebrations. Make sure to check and ask for offers to bigger groups too!

Christmas in northernmost Lapland

Christmas in northernmost Lapland

During Christmas holiday there is plenty to do for all in the northernmost Lapland!

Experience snowy adventures on slopes and ski tracks. From ski school you might find yourself a new hobby, refresh your memory and hone the technique to become even better at snowboarding and skiing. Ski school offers also lessons with cross-country skiing and you can rent out gear from equipment rentals to your liking.

Tobogganing under the aurora lights is something you don’t want to miss. Marvelous image art is shown to the track and the lights mimic the movement of the northern lights. Ski centre offers special toboggans which give you more control and support you better. You can buy your tobogganing pass straight from the ski rental.

Experience the wilderness safely on a husky or a reindeer safari. These arctic animals take you on a smooth and fast paced trip to the middle of untouched nature. Gaze up on the sky for northern lights on a late evening safari or witness the burning sky with pastel colors during the polar night.

You should absolutely take a stroll around the village streets to see all the hidden log cabins and winter trails around. Trees filled with thick snow are arching over you creating a magical glimmering pathway. Stop for a moment to listen to the silence. If you come from surroundings with some sound always present the quietness here can be a bit of a meditative experience. On the other hand the bubbly voices of everyone enjoying Christmas time gives you a smile too. Take a hot cup of something to drink and let all of your worries disappear by the crackling sound of fire in a cozy cabin.
