If you are looking for a break with a difference, this four day trip to Finland's Arctic Treehouse Hotel is simply perfect. Opened in 2016, this unique hotel aims to elevate an overnight stay in Finnish Lapland to new heights. Nestled among the heavily snow-laden trees of the Arctic forest are a series of thoughtfully constructed cabins, whose panoramic windows frame an incredible winter landscape. Spend the day ticking off a list of activities and evenings snuggled in a cosy cabin, gazing at the sky, where you have every chance of seeing the Northern Lights dancing overhead.
Arrive in Rovaniemi
On arrival at Rovaniemi, the capital of Finnish Lapland, you are met at the airport and driven to the Arctic TreeHouse Hotel. It may only be 10 minutes to the resort, but on arrival you will feel a million miles away. Check into your cabin among the trees and familiarise yourself with your surroundings. Dinner is served in the adjoining restaurant, where you can enjoy delicious dishes and traditional Lappish cuisine as well as having a panoramic Arctic view, before retiring to your own cabin.
Rovaniemi is the capital of Finnish Lapland and has long been a popular choice for those wishing to visit the ‘home’ of Santa Claus. However, it is not just a place to visit at Christmas and the surrounding Arctic wilderness provides a perfect setting for a wealth of activities to suit every kind of visitor. Take a thrilling snowmobile or husky safari, a romantic reindeer sleigh ride or head out for a day trip on an ice-breaker and swim in the frozen sea.
Another memorable day after waking up in your cabin at the Treehouse hotel. Go in search of the Northern Lights or try the traditional Finnish past-times of cross-country skiing and snow shoeing. Wilderness dinners and ice lunches are also on the menu. With everyone having their individual ideas of adventure, the hotel provides lots of activities to choose from during your stay and breakfast and dinner at the Arctic TreeHouse is included throughout.
End of stay
Today you say farewell to staff and new found friends at the Arctic Treehouse Hotel but there is possibly time for one or more activities before you check out. Then you are picked up from reception and driven back to the airport at Rovaniemi to catch your flight back home. This short action-packed break at one of the world's most unusual hotels will leave you with lasting memories of a wonderful time spent in the vast wilderness of Finland's arctic region.
