Frequently asked questions

Will I see the Northern Lights on your Finland tours?

Our group tours in Rovaniemi and Kuhmo are perfect for spotting the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), as they are northern locations in or near the Arctic Circle. Although you won't see the Northern Lights amongst the bright lights of the cities, you can head into the countryside on included or optional excursions to try and catch a glimpse of this natural phenomenon. Each of our group tours in Finland has a host of included and optional activities. Activities include snowmobiling, ice fishing, tobogganing, husky sleigh rides, and cross-country skiing, with more information available on the tour page for each Finland adventure. If witnessing the Northern Lights is your main reason for visiting Finland, we recommend our Aurora & Glass Igloo Explorer tour. On this trip you will spend a night in a glass igloo, keeping warm and toasty with your eyes fixed upwards on the night sky - it's the best chance you can get in Finland to spot the Northern Lights, and a unique experience too! The best time to see the Northern Lights in Finland is between the months of December - March, when our Finland tours operate. Of course, Northern Lights viewing cannot be guaranteed, but you have a great chance of seeing them on our Finland tours!

The best of Finland

Here are our personal highlights in Finland. The beautiful capital of Helsinki isn't one to miss, and Rovaniemi is the best place to explore Lapland, by snowmobile, husky sleigh, or reindeer sleigh. Santa's Village is an important destination for families, and Kuhmo is the base for our Christmas and New Year Finland tours!

Rovaniemi

The capital of Finnish Lapland and the perfect base for husky sledding and snowmobiling, Rovaniemi is the place to be in Finland, with or without the kids! It's the perfect place for an outdoor adventure, and for spotting the Northern Lights. The town itself is charming, and the Arktikum Museum is a particular highlight - visit on some of our Finland tours!

Helsinki

Seaside Helsinki is the capital of Finland and the perfect place for a short break, located on the scenic Gulf of Finland. You'll definitely want to explore Suomenlinna Fortress and there are a host of superb restaurants and an emerging nightlife scene emerging in this increasingly popular city break destination. Nearby Nuuksio National Park is a great way to embrace Finland's wild nature without heading too far from the city.

Santa Claus Village

Located in Rovaniemi, this is where Santa Claus spends most of his year, working with his elves and getting ready for Christmas Eve. Visitors to the Santa Claus Village on our Finland tours can see the post office, which receives mail to Santa from all over the world. And of course, they can meet the man himself, and the children can tell him what they would like for Christmas this year.

Kuhmo

Riverside Kuhmo is something of a hidden gem in Finland, attracting just a fraction of the visitors that Rovaniemi does, but boasting the same ice, snow, blue lakes, and stunning winter landscapes. This makes it the perfect place to host our Christmas and New Year tours to Finland, with husky sledding and cross-country skiing some of the more popular adventure activities. Plus, of course, you'll have a great chance to spot the Northern Lights, AKA the Aurora Borealis!
