We eschew the few not-terribly-pretty towns in Lapland (northern Finland), preferring instead the snowy pristine wilds. We want you to get out there, away from light pollution and in to the still, frozen winter wilderness. Our accommodation choices reflect this ambition. Different Snow have hand-picked a selection of hotels, lodges and cabins which are themselves an integral part their surroundings.  After all, your accommodation is merely the base from which you are going to get wrapped up warm and then head out and explore deeper by husky, snowmobile of snow shoe. Therefore the starting point for your excursions may as well also be your destination - the wilderness. But this base may as well be comfortable, friendly, characterful and welcoming...

We feature a few hotels, several wilderness lodges and a handful of cabins but, truth be told, the distinction between them is somewhat arbitrary. All are either beside frozen lakes and rivers or nestled amongst the trees in white forests - the serenity of the Lappish winter always taking centre stage. Do you prefer the facilities of a hotel, the community of a wilderness lodge or the romantic privacy of a cabin? Take a browse and, as importantly, take a look at the activities possible from each. Get in contact with us - we've been to them all -  and we'll create a bespoke itinerary, marrying together accommodation, activity and....Lapland.
