Experience a week in Menesjärvi on a Northern Lights hunting adventure, head to Kuusamo for a taste of all things winter, including reindeer and huskies, or alternatively, stay in an Aurora Cabin at the brand-new Northern Lights Village Levi and design your own dream Arctic break!

Put a spring in your step with some pre-summer family fun! Experience the best of Morocco with activities and cultural experiences in Marrakech and Essaouira, or travel to the Azores for incredible landscapes with highlights such as snorkelling with dolphins and canyoning through a natural park!

Alternatively, if you’re yet to enjoy a winter wonderland experience then Finnish Lapland still has plenty of snow left for Arctic adventures.
