If you are after something unique to that of the Alps, then try Finland! It shall immediately offer a different experience but still holds similar qualities.
The scenery is remarkable; encircled by frozen lakes, ice-sculpted woodland and uncrowded slopes. Finland is not just about the downhill skiing like many of the other resorts (especially the purpose built ones). There is an enormous collection of other Arctic activities making Finland quite an inimitable ski holiday. Snow-shoeing, ice fishing, ice carting, husky and reindeer sleigh rides as well as the incredible Northern lights are certainly things to experience! It really is a country of natural incredible beauty and families will have a memorable time.
The ski schools as well are very highly regarded with English speaking instructors. The 3 main resorts are Rovaniemi which is the capital of Finland, along with Yllas and Levi, respectively.
Yllas is the largest downhill resort in Finland whilst Levi is perhaps the most cosmopolitan with a good choice of restaurants and entertainment. The resorts are also that bit smaller than many of the famous French or Austrian ones for example, which again can be perfect for families or those that like everything to be in effortless walking distance! The food is straightforward but delicious and with many spa hotels too, there really is something for one and all.
Finland is an incomparable experience where a magical visit to Santa is also an obligation!
