Review - DIY Lapland holidays:

It is possible to arrange your own holiday to Lapland. While Lapland package deals usually work out cheaper, doing your own trip can give you more freedom and less crowds. Here’s a guide to how you can plan a holiday to Lapland, Finland or Sweden and some things to consider.

1) Cheap flights to Finland. Use Skyscanner.net and have a look at flights to Helsinki. Look also at SAS and Finnair for scheduled flights. For charter flights to Finland look at flythomascook who sell seat only to Kitillia from Heathrow departing on Saturdays throughout the winter season.

2) Getting from Helsinki to Lapland – There are trains from Helsinki to Rovaniemi the main resort in Finnish Lapland.

3) Hotels in Lapland. The main Lapland resort is named Rovaniemi and smaller resorts are Rukatunturi, Levi, Yllasjarvi (Yllas), Luosto, and Suomutunturi (Suomo). Look at hotel price comparison site Nordic Hotels to find the best deal for you in Lapland as well as Helsinki if you want a stopover.

4) Activities in Lapland – You can pre book excursions in Lapland – see below for a selection of activities from Isango who offer a best price guarantee.

5) Warm clothes. Thermal clothes are required and are included in some packages to Lapland. Check details before you book and certainly before you travel to Lapland.

Winter Snow Holidays

While the sunshine from a winter beach holiday can offer you a nice tan, there’s nothing quite like feeling the fresh winter air on your face, and the crunch of crisp snow underneath warm comfortable winter boots. Snow themed holidays are becoming very popular and there are now several winter activity holidays in a number of different countries (including Lapland) featuring a wide range of sports and activities.

Kids too young to ski? Snowmobiling, Dog Sledding searching for the Northern Lights, visiting snow castles and ice hotels and of course visiting Father Christmas, are just some of the popular activities you can try.

    My son and his partner and 3 year old would like a short break to lapland or similar to see farther christmas and sliegh,s etc-they have never been before so they would like some advice please. Perhaps for 3-4 days and leaving from an airport in or near the south-west (devon)Price is also a deciding factor so as cheap as possible please!

    Thank-you

Been there done that?
