Situated 230km north of the Arctic Circle, hotels Harriniva and Jeris are lovely Scandinavian style retreats whose reputation for excellent activities is known throughout the area. The former has its own husky centre on site which allows for easy access to a variety of safaris; the latter sits beside the frozen waters of Lake Jerisjärvi and its lakeside spa pools.

Your accommodation will be based in the comfortable rooms of one of the hotels, with one night in a genuine wilderness cabin, providing a unique opportunity to experience the untouched outdoors with a backdrop of spectacular forested fells and mountains.

Your days here will be spent participating in a range of unforgettable experiences and by the time you leave you will have enjoyed a reindeer farm visit and sleigh ride, felt the thrill of a snowmobile safari, driven a team of enthusiastic huskies on an overnight excursion into the wilderness, and gained an insight into the unique culture of this remarkable region. The free time that is included will also allow you to relax and enjoy the peaceful nature of your surroundings. Alternatively, you can take in the area at your own pace by hiring cross-country skis or snowshoes to explore the trails which surround the hotel with your family.

Evenings will be spent in the warmth of first-rate hospitality, enjoying saunas and getting to know your fellow guests. As if all this wasn’t enough, with Harriniva and Jeris’ prime locations there is also a very high chance that you may see some fantastic displays of Northern Lights too.

On each of our holidays you will see a clear outline of exactly what's included in the price of your holiday.

In the unlikely event that your chosen date has not reached the required minimum numbers nine weeks before your scheduled departure date we will contact you and discuss the various options available to you. We will always do all we can to operate a holiday and in some cases we may be able to operate the holiday by combining your itinerary with that of other guests for some activities (this may mean that the maximum group size is increased but this will be discussed in full with you).

If we are unable to operate the holiday then you will be offered the chance to transfer to an alternative holiday or date (subject to availability). If the alternative is more expensive you will be asked to pay the difference, if it is cheaper then you will be reimbursed.
