SILVESTER IN ROVANIEMI

6 days | 5 nights

Rovaniemi is the capital of Finnish Lapland, located at the Arctic Circle. This Nordic region has eight different seasons, each with its special light, temperature and natural phenomena. The changing seasons offer excellent settings for all kinds of activities and walks through the snow-covered forests and on frozen rivers: reindeer safaris, dog sledding safaris and snowmobile safaris. Try ice fishing on a frozen lake or spend a night in an ice room with a constant temperature of -5 degrees – the choice is yours! Although the Christmas period takes place only once a year, you can experience Christmas in Rovaniemi throughout the year.

In the village, we have some free time to meet Santa in his office, send postcards from the Santa Claus’ Main Post Office and explore handicraft and souvenir shops. Awarded a Reindeer Driving Licence and a Certificate for Crossing the Arctic Circle, you will not forget this experience. Transfers are done by car.

Noon: Husky Safari (10 km)

After a short drive from town, we’ll arrive at a husky ranch, where these friendly dogs will bark an enthusiastic welcome to you. Before departing on the safari, you will be given instruction on how to control the sleds. Enjoy some hot berry juice by an open fire and chat with the head musher about these amazing northern animals once you return to the ranch. The husky drive is 10 kilometres.

Evening: Mystic Party (22:00-00:30)

At Lapland’s magical border of the Arctic Circle, the festivities will be held for welcoming in the New Year. Fire, ice, darkness, snow, lights, music and dance are the combined elements that create a magical event for the whole family. The mysterious shamans fuel the atmosphere as the New Year approaches. Santa Claus himself will also pay us a visit! A giant snow disco, snow bars, massive fireworks display and the spectacular New Year Dance Show definitely conjure up a memorable entirety. New Year’s tin casting is an old Finnish tradition to see what the future holds. The fortune tellers, Shamans, will help you interpreting the marks for the future in your tin. The event will take place by snowy banks in an idyllic winter setting.
