A COZY LAPPISH EXPERIENCE
YOUR POLAR DAYS OUTAs part of your stay, a Nordic activity is scheduled every day, to be chosen from the wide range of experiences offered by the lodge. Nearby, Urho Kekkonen National Park - Finland's second-largest protected park - reveals the grandeur of its primary forests, moors and gorges, marshes and mountains covered in thick snow. A vast expanse of pristine landscapes to roam at one's own pace with snowshoes or the time for a quiet stroll cross-country skiing, two of Lapland's popular Nordic hobbies. Skiers can perfect their skills with skis or snowboards on the slopes of the Saariselka ski area, or travel miles on snowmobiles, to better understand the sheer magnitude of the Lappish expanses. Another setting, and other sensations, as the steady and safe steps of the Finnish horses sink silently into the snow. When it turns into ice and coats white lakes with a thick frozen layer, patient fishermen replicate the ancestral Native American techniques of fishing through holes in the ice. Another must-do is driving a team of huskies, to better savour the majestic silence of the snow-covered plains, with the sleigh and the breath of the Huskies the only noise to be heard - as well as the reindeer, an iconic sight of the Far North, whose husbandry is still a major source of income in Lapland. Back at the lodge, there is nothing more relaxing than some time spent in the sauna followed by a good massage (classic, invigorating with hot stones or relaxing with aromatic herbs) to loosen your tight muscles after a day spent in the cold of the arctic winter. This will leave you in the perfect mood to look out for the aurora borealis (northern lights) in the evening, as it sometimes fills the sky with a glowing greens and reds.
A la carte
YOUR HEAD IN THE STARS
The Javri Lodge has recently built four SkyView Suites: spacious rooms on the top floor with huge windows (about 1.5ft high) that look out on the natural world outside, and a glass roof to help you see the stars and northern lights.
WITH A FEW EXTRA DAYS - HELSINKI
As it is a stopover, why not spend a few days there? Behind its modest appearance, Art Nouveau facades and occasional Soviet influence, Helsinki is a cultural, dynamic and festive European capital, open to the winds of change. Visit the Design District, a showcase of Finnish creativity (25 streets and nearly 200 designer, antique and fashion brands, museums, art galleries, showrooms, restaurants, etc.), and explore Lasipalatsi and its museum hub.
