Throughout my travel career I have always loved to hear from tour operators that go out and develop authentic new products and destinations and bring them to market. As a former product and marketing guy myself, I know the value, however subtle, of differentiating yourselves from the competition.
It was therefore great to learn this week, that with unique dedicated flight departures from five UK regional airports the little known resort of Lake Jerisjarvi deep within the Pallas-Yllas National Park in Finnish Lapland is now, for the first time, available with Lapland specialist Transun Travel.
A Winter Wonderland…
Arriving into Enontekio airport for a 3 or a 4 night stay, you will have just a 75 minute transfer to a resort which is that magical winter wonderland of frozen landscapes, forests bowing under the weight of the snow, the mesmerizing peace, tranquility and beauty of the white and the indigeneous Sami people who populate the region alongside of course, the reindeer.
Family Size Accommodation…
The accommodation you will stay in will be at a choice of traditionally built timber cabins with perhaps the biggest attraction that they are ideal for families.
These “Jeris Cabins” will accommodate from 3 to 7 people depending on the size of your family.
Each enjoys a private sauna, a log burner, an en suite shower room and a drying cupboard for your snow suits and boots which you will have collected on arrival for the duration of your stay.
Full Board Finnish Style…
Meals are taken on a full board basis at the accommodations hotel which is 15 minute walk (a shuttle is at times available) from the cabins although on one evening you will be treated to dinner at a traditional lakeside restaurant.
Activities & Excursions…
Transun Travel have developed a range of fabulous activities and excursions for families titled “Sleigh Bells Ringing”.
This package includes a Husky Sled Safari, a Snowmobile Safari, a Reindeer Camp Visit, a Family Meeting with Santa, Snow Fun (including ice fishing, snowshoeing and toboganning) and a Cooking Baking & Crafts experience.
If that isn’t enough then there is always the option to add some additional experiences.
Lake Jerisjarvi – An Experience of A Lifetime…
So there you have it – unique departures, a magical location, fabulous family accommodation, a range of incredible activities and experiences and above all, a once in a lifetime experience that you and your family will talk about and cherish for the rest of your lives.
I would say that is priceless !
