Here are our top three picks for your dream Valentines break:

  1. Muotka

Whisk your Valentine away to a cosy lodge at Muotka in snowy Finland and try out all of those ‘must-do’ winter activities. Experience a thrilling dog sled safari on the snow-laden fells, embark on an exhilarating snowmobile trip and of course, enjoy three dedicated hunts for the Northern Lights.

For a more “boutique” short break, head to the brand-new, adult-only Nangu Hotel nestled peacefully on the shores of Finland’s mystical Lake Inari. Combine evenings spent searching for the Northern Lights with daytimes visiting a reindeer farm, getting to know the local indigenous culture at Sámi Siida Museum, dog sledding and snowshoeing.

How about sleeping under the stars in a half-glass roofed Aurora Cabin for two at Saariselkä? Nothing could be more memorable for your romantic break!

With our tailor-made-break, you can design your own itinerary. Choose between snowmobiling, reindeer sleigh rides, huskies and so much more!

The Aurora Zone was born out of our love of all things wintery. We were already regular visitors to the likes of Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland thanks to a fascination with winter activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling and the Scandinavian way of life. Many of our visits coincided with sightings of the Northern Lights and The Aurora Zone was born from a desire to share Mother Nature’s greatest wonder with as many people as possible. We have all been held in the Aurora’s thrall and our mission is to do our very best to ensure that our clients can experience that magical moment on their Northern Lights holiday.
