Picking an apartment in Lapland gives you the flexibility of letting the week pan out how you’d like it to, the comfort of having your own place to crash and the bonus of keeping costs down.
You’re not restricted to the typical concrete apartment blocks you find in other European resorts – far from it. Dotted within Lapland’s wonderful wilderness are some lovely chalet-like cabins (like the ones in Saariselkä) which serve as the perfect cosy setting. Often set away from the centre, these give you a good chance of spotting the Northern Lights during your stay.
If convenience is more important, options like the Ylläs Saga apartments have doorstep skiing, seeing you straight out onto the slopes in the morning and easily skiing home later on.
Apartments offer the ultimate flexibility for those who like to control their own schedules -whether you’re eating out, cooking or doing a bit of both, you can plan the week to suit you. Self-catering is also very often the cheapest form of accommodation.
To enjoy a magical week in Lapland without having to spend a fortune, opt to cook for yourself by picking up the essentials from a local food shop and making easy meals that everyone will enjoy.
Often food packs can be booked in advance with things like bread, milk and biscuits ready and waiting when you arrive, so some of the work is already done for you – ask us which holidays have this optional extra.
If you’re keen on the apartment style of accommodation but can’t face cooking, some properties allow upgrades to half-board packages, where meals are provided in a nearby hotel.
