Then, with oxygen-rich air surging into your lungs, trek up 1,000m+ peaks, finishing the day with the off-piste ride of your life.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

The winter wonder of the Northern Lights is best seen from January to early March, while the ski season continues until May. If you go for the beautiful Karasjok dog-sled lodges, you forgo a little luxury but gain so much in charming remote exclusivity that you won’t notice. Laplanders go above and beyond to make sure you have an amazing time, whatever you choose to do – so just go for it!
