For a destination with a wonderfully outdoorsy feel, set your sights on the village of Ivalo, lying in the bend of the river Ivalojoki. It’s remote and pretty, in the far reaches of Finland, attracting travellers keen to look beyond the tourist trail. With the dawn of winter, the slopes of Finland’s largest ski resort – Saariselka – come to life with snow seekers cruising through the icy wildernesses on snowmobiles and husky sleds.
You can while away evenings in toasty saunas or wait with child-like excitement for a sight of the Northern Lights. Book your Ivalo holidays during the summer, on the other hand, and you’ll have acres of countryside to explore by canoe, kayak, mountain bike and foot.
