A Fantastic Family Holiday To Lapland

As a father of two, anywhere that makes my children smile from ear to ear and laugh so much is alright by me and that is why year after year we return to Luosto.

This small Finnish village has everything and more that a family could wish for. The Tunturi Hotel has a small swimming pool which is an ideal place for the kids to splash around in. The staff are friendly and accommodating and the restaurants are very child-friendly. 


Luosto offers plenty of activities for parents and children.

Our favourite has to be dog sledding and the cries of delight from the kids are unforgettable as we whizz through the snowy forest. And then, to meet and handle all the cute puppies in the Husky Farm afterwards is amazing. Each and every time, my daughter just can’t stop smiling and we invariably have to disappoint her by telling her she can’t bring a puppy home.

To our mutual surprise we also found cross country skiing to be a great family activity. It was something we could all master and it was very liberating being able to head off down snowy tracks as a family when we had a spare few hours.


Another great memory was when my daughter learnt to downhill ski in Luosto.

This was undoubtedly due to the extreme patience and never ending encouragement from the local ski instructor. It was the best feeling ever seeing my 10 year old skiing down the slopes unaided. We have so many happy memories from Finnish Lapland and these are just a few.
