Winter Skiing in Finland

Finland maintains a certain sophistication and sense of old tradition in it's winter ski resorts, where the log cabin dominates over the hotel suite.  The resorts here are smaller, more isolated, less known for their apres ski (though limited it can be lively), but very well designed and not at all lacking in modern amenities.  Finland has a landscape like a winter fairy tale, the home of Father Christmas, reindeer, and boundless arctic wilderness.  Enjoy a winter ski holiday in beautiful Finland by car hire.

The lack of mountain discos and other apres ski doesn't mean you'll be bored off the slopes or non-skiers in your group will be left sipping hot chocolate.  The bigger resorts offer excursions like horseback riding, sleigh rides with reindeer or huskies, snowmobiling, and or a relaxing visit to the spa or sauna.  Plan fun excursions with the whole family by 7 seater car rental.

The biggest resorts in Finland are Levi, Ruka, Pyha, and Yllas, though they will still seem quite small if you're used to the large, commercialized resorts elsewhere in Europe.  Predominantly located in Lapland, these resorts above the Arctic Circle are the world's most snow-sure even though they are at relatively low altitude, with a nice long season but quite short days.  Many offer floodlit night skiing to help you get in a full day on the slopes, or you can postpone your Winter ski holiday until the early Spring when the days are a bit longer and sunnier in March and April.

The peaceful scenery of Finland is attractive enough for a holiday vacation by car rental.  Characterized by frozen lakes and ice-sculpted forests, Finland will be a winter destination you and your family won't soon forget.  Beyond it's amazing Arctic activities and scenic wilderness, Finland offers the chance, if your timing is right, to witness one of nature's most mesmerizing light displays; the swirling night rainbow called the Northern Lights.
