When it comes to winter experiences, Finland is giving Iceland a run for its money - and believe us when we say, you can’t get much more wintery than Lapland…

Located in the heart of Finnish Lapland, Octola is a luxurious lodge on the edge of the arctic circle. Here, you can watch the Northern Lights dancing from the warmth of your bed. Octola offers a number of magical activities and guests can enjoy anything from snowshoeing or skiing, husky sledding and ice fishing, to winter ice driving and snowmobile programmes. Go on a helicopter tour to marvel at the stunning Scandinavian scenery, take the plunge and try ice swimming, or learn some traditional skills at handicraft workshops. It really is a real-life winter wonderland.


Octola is a very special place to stay, with the option to stay in either one of it’s private wings, or take the whole property as a much larger group. There is a minimum stay of two nights but all prices include a 5* service of delicious meals prepared by in-house chefs, a butler service, personal wilderness guide, private transfers and, on behalf of each guest, a generous donation will be made to the Private Wilderness Fund to protect Arctic animals.
