Our experiences and holidays
Our Taster Week includes a tried and tested agenda of activities which we have offered for many years and includes a range of the key Nordic activities along with the all-important free time.
You will enjoy a reindeer encounter, a dog sled safari, and cross-country skiing. We also include snowmobiling, both during the day and at night to hunt for the Aurora Borealis. Our taster itinerary can be enjoyed using either a modern hotel or a log cabin as your base.
Our tailor-made holidays in Luosto are also extremely popular allowing you to set the duration of your holiday and choose the activities.
There are a range of dog sled, reindeer and snowmobile safaris to choose from and you can also try snowshoeing, ice fishing and cross-country skiing. Luosto does have its very own unique experiences, however. For example, you can visit the only working Amethyst Mine in Europe and dig for your own gem. The views from the mine are also spectacular and highlight the sheer size of Finnish Lapland’s lake and forest wilderness.
One of the other main highlights is a visit to Aurora Kota around 35km away. To get there you can take a thrilling evening snowmobile safari or travel by car to this traditional teepee (where a Northern Lights expert will explain some of the basics behind Nature's greatest light show). The Kota is in the town of Sodankyla – the hub of Northern Lights research and forecasting in the region - so in Aurora terms Luosto is ideally situated.
