The pool at Javri Lodge

Surrounded by pure wilderness in the far north of Lapland near to Europe’s most northern ski resort Saariselkä, the lodge is small and intimate and a fabulous place to go for a truly winter wilderness break.

There are plenty of winter activities available from alpine skiing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing and ice fishing in areas only accessible by snow mobile. Add the end of each day a wellness area in the cabin includes an indoor swimming pool and sauna before tucking in to the finest food that combines traditional dishes with international influences.

Prices from £2,835 per person including flights from the UK via Helsinki to Inari, return private airport transfer from Inari, four nights in a cosy double on a full board basis and a teo-hour guided winter activity such as snow shoeing, alpine skiing, dog sledding, ice fishing, husky safari or reindeer safari.

Experience a range of exhilarating winter activities including snowmobiling, snowshoeing, a husky safari and a night time trip to a remote cabin to watch the Northern Lights. Guests stay each night at the newly opened Wilderness Hotel Inari, in either the main lodge or one of their glass roofed Aurora cabin, complete with private sauna.
