The flexibility of self-catering comes in very handy in the Finnish Lapland resorts. If you’re keen to make the most of the Lapland experience, you can do so without having to factor in set meal times in your hotel – stay out and enjoy the Northern Lights if they make an appearance, or head out to Reindeer Farms and Santa’s house without rushing back.
From fine finishing touches (like log fires) to treats (like private saunas - actually the norm here in Finland), our luxury self-catered accommodation provides the warmest welcome home after a day in snowy wilderness. Stay in a log cabin tucked away from the centre – upping your chances of a Northern Lights sighting – or opt for an apartment linked with a top-notch spa hotel for access to the facilities.
The set-up of the main Finnish ski resorts is incredibly simple, with an easily reachable centre offering everything in one place. National supermarket brands (like S-market and K-supermarket) stock groceries where you can pick up ingredients to cook whatever you fancy after a day on the snow.
Your kitchen facilities depend on the rating of the apartment you stay in, with some of the smallest, simplest lodgings having just a hotplate and microwave and higher-end apartments coming with proper ovens, microwaves and dishwashers.
If you fancy some time away from the stove, places like Subway and pizzerias often have a takeaway menu, and there’s a range of restaurants to eat out at serving Finnish food and international cuisine.
