Average time to visit

Winter is the perfect time to visit Finnish Lapland. The winter temperatures can vary anywhere between 0°C and -40°C. The average temperature in January is -14°C, but the cold is not biting because the air is dry. There can be as much as one meter of snow and it usually lasts until May. There is potential for Northern Lights viewing throughout the winter months.

Insider's View

Wrap up warm and go for a bracing walk in the snow and perhaps go tobogganing down the snowy slopes too.

The traditional Sami kota-style tent with roaring fire is the perfect place to relax in after  any evenings activity and to listen to the crackling of the flames.

Description

Javri Lodge is a stunning adults-only chalet-style property situated in the beautiful setting of Saariselkä in Finnish Lapland. It is the perfect for couples to get away from it all and cosy up by the fire after a full day of activities out in the snow.

After an exhilarating day out in the snow, warm up in the traditional Finnish sauna and perhaps take a dip in the swimming pool to wind down for the evening.

The living room offers a cosy place to relax and enjoy a warming tipple whilst gazing out of the window as cross country skiers pass by and as evening draws in you may spot white hares and arctic foxes dashing around in the snow.

Nothing is too much for the staff at Javri lodge, who strive to make your stay special and memorable. Your timetable here can be arranged to whatever you desire, whether you'd like to rise early and head straight out on a guided snowshoe walk or take a relaxed pace with a late breakfast. My favorite time came in the evening when we would adjourn to the sitting room, kicking back in the super-comfortable scandinavian designer chairs, with bellies full of the most delicious food, listening to the crackling of the fire and watching giant white hares chase each other in the deep snow outside. As this is an adults-only property, the calm and serene atmosphere is perfect for couples who want to get away from it all and simply stop, listen and enjoy your surroundings.

I absolutely loved Javri Lodge. It had a really lovely feel to it with amazing yet relaxed service. The food was incredible and so beautifully presented. A huge bonus in Finnish Lapland was the swimming pool, which made a perfect evening combined with the sauna after a chilly day out in the snow
