Finland: Snow Village Short Break
An out-of-this-world winter wonderland experience
For a burst of exhilarating action and adventure, enjoy a Snow Village short break and experience an unforgettable winter holiday. Travel to Finland, a land of rolling fells and snow-topped forests and of course home to the incredible Snow Village. The Snow Village short break is a unique holiday, perfect for those who yearn for an Arctic getaway that will leave them revitalised and full of new and exciting tales to tell. The Snow Village is a sight that needs to be seen to be believed and those who do witness this sensational creation often want to return again and again. Carved from ice and snow, the hotel, restaurant and bar at the Snow Village are built anew each year with a new theme. Accommodation during the Snow Village short break includes the rustic charms and comfort of a log cabin as well as a night in one of the fabulous ice rooms at the Snow Hotel.
When you are not spending your time snowshoeing around the area, searching for the sensational colours of the Northern Lights, or sampling the local tipple in the Ice Bar, there is a multitude of other activities for you to enjoy on this Snow Village short break. Explore your artistic side and try your hand at ice sculpting, race over frosted terrains on a snowmobile or enjoy a tour of the beautiful vistas on a traditional reindeer sleigh ride. All this and so much more is available when you book a Snow Village short break.
