The Lapland Trip?

There aren’t many regions in the world that are as dreamy as magical Lapland. During The Lapland Trip you will spend a week getting to know the various aspects the region has got to offer thanks to outdoor activities offered to you by true locals.

For seven nights, you will stay in a hostel located in an authentic little village that will be the home base for all of your activities.

The stay

You’ll stay in the core of Lapland, in an authentic village called Äkäslompolo. Your new home base is one of the nicest hostels in Lapland and surrounding areas: The 7 Fells Hotel.

The hostel consists of a central wooden house with a whole bunch of cosy annexes. You can opt for a private room with a shared bathroom, a flat with your own bathroom or a dormitory with four to eight beds. The building also features a central kitchen where you can cook your own meals if you do not stay in a flat.

The Week Schedule

To make things easier for you, we have come up with a weekly schedule that features one great activity per day. The activities (all of which are included in the total price, bar the skiing) never take up an entire day so you have plenty of time to relax or explore the region yourself: there’s a real network of walking trails and cross-country routes near the hostel. Kick sleds and snow shoes are at your disposal free of charge!
