Helsinki & the Northern Lights

(7 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Helsinki, Finnish Lapland

This private Finland tour combines the cultural highlights of Helsinki and the natural beauty of Lapland and the Arctic Circle. It includes private touring with your own guide and driver in Helsinki and private outdoor activities in Finnish Lapland, including husky dog-sledding in the winter and enjoying the midnight sun in the summer. This Finland tour is also ideal for travelers wanting to see the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) during the winter months.

Begin in Helsinki, the beautiful seaside capital of Finland. During flexible touring with your own private guide, experience the city’s lively culture, interesting architecture and excellent museums. Visit Temppeliaukio, the famed "Rock Church" hewn from solid stone. Tour outdoor markets, indoor food halls and historic squares, and see landmark buildings such as Finlandia Hall, the Railway Station, the Olympic Stadium, Amos Rex and the Kamppi Chapel of Silence. Drive along the coast to see beautiful historic villas and the unusual Sibelius Monument, which is dedicated to Finland's most beloved composer. Artisans of Leisure will arrange for you to have a private tour of the Alvar Aalto House, the home of the most important Finnish architect of the 20th century. If desired, also visit nearby Studio Aalto. There will be time to visit renowned cafes and Finnish design shops along Esplanadi Park in central Helsinki. Other touring options include Suomenlinna, the Arabia porcelain factory, the Design District, art museums such as Kiasma and Ateneum, Kaivopuisto Park and Seurasaari Open-Air Museum.

Artisans of Leisure can also arrange reservations at top Helsinki restaurants, in-depth shopping for the best Finnish design, cooking classes, tickets to performances at Finlandia Hall or the Savonlinna Opera Festival and more.

Next, fly to Finnish Lapland, a wild and remote region above the Arctic Circle. Stay in a luxurious log chalet on a private wilderness preserve or in modern cabins with large windows for viewing the Northern Lights from your bed (depending on the season and conditions). Experience the natural beauty of Lapland year-round through exciting outdoor activities. During the winter, enjoy activities such as snowmobile tours, husky dog-sledding excursions, reindeer sleigh rides, snowshoeing, snowboarding, Nordic (cross-country) skiing, a visit with Santa, a private gingerbread class, tobogganing and more. One evening, embark on a hunt for the magical Northern Lights by snowmobile, dog sled, or reindeer- or horse-pulled sleigh. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange an ice-fishing excursion or a traditional smoke sauna experience. During the summer and fall, interact with adorable husky puppies, go hiking or horseback riding in the forest, pick wild berries, explore the landscape by ATV, and enjoy the unique light and atmosphere of the midnight sun.

Testimonials

Wow, our Artisans of Leisure travel consultant for Finland was brilliant, punctilious, and made the trip more fun than it would have been had it been planned identically by someone else. Thank you from us both.
