first trip to Lapland

I am planning to visit lapland either Dec 13 or Feb 14, we are a family of eight 5 Adults and 3 Children 13 to 8. I have had quotes from Inghams for both dates for K5 Cabins and also the immelmokit cabins. Can you advise which cabins are better and which time of the year ie snow conditions and also the chances of seeing the northern lights. obviously I understand this is down to alot of other factors

thanks Sally

The later in the season you go the better snow conditions you will have, but usually there's snow also in December. K5 is "behind" the Levi tourist information, Immelmökit a few hundred metres further from the K5, so locationwise there's not a big difference.

See the equipment and pictures etc. yourself:

Immelmökit: levikeskus.fi/immelmokit/english/index.html

Northern lights are in practice down to pure luck (strong solar wind/solar storm hitting earth's magnetosphere and clear skies needed simultaneously at dark time).

I would opt for Feb- more daylight and more ski runs and snowmobile tracks open.

As for the Northern Lights we have been 6 times and never seen them :(
