20 December 2021

Santa Claus Safari (10:00-16:00)

The day starts with a snowmobile safari to a reindeer farm filled with Lappish culture. You will take a reindeer ride and attend a special ceremony for crossing the Arctic Circle. In the afternoon, the trip continues by car to Santa Claus Village – an ideal spot for a little Christmas shopping. You will also have an opportunity to send postcards from Santa’s Post Office. During the day, you will get to meet Santa Claus himself and also enjoy a delicious lunch in a cozy restaurant. And to top it all off, you will receive a Diploma for crossing the Arctic Circle!

Dinner in a kota (18:30-21:00)

The evening starts with a short coach transfer to a cozy wilderness kota. Here we can relax by the fire and enjoy traditional cold and warm smoked salmon as appetizers, with children having the opportunity to fry sausages by the fire! The chef has prepared a traditional Finnish main course, Karelian hotpot (mixed meat casserole with mixed root vegetable) together with mashed potatoes. As dessert, pancakes are prepared by the open fire. You may even make your own pancake before transferring back to the city.

Husky Safari (10 km) (Departure at 09:15 AM)

After a short drive from town, we will arrive at a husky ranch, where these friendly dogs will bark an enthusiastic welcome to you. Before departing on the safari, we will be given instruction on how to control the sleds. Children will be travelling in a large sleigh driven by a guide. One adult will be standing behind a sleigh as a driver and one will be sitting on a sleigh as a passenger. Drivers can be changed during the safari. Enjoy some hot berry juice by an open fire and chat with the head musher about these amazing northern animals once we return to the ranch.

.

Optional evening excursion to the Arctic SnowHotel and dinner at the Ice Restaurant (16:45-20:30)

The tour includes return transfers, a guided tour of the Arctic SnowHotel, where the guide will tell you about the construction, operation and special features of the snow hotel and, finally, a three course dinner in the Ice Restaurant. The Ice Restaurant built of snow and ice provides a unique setting for an unforgettable dinner prepared from local ingredients. (Supplement 90 EUR/adult, 60 EUR/child).

22 December 2021

Evening: Aurora Borealis Safari by snow mobile (18:00-21:00)

Experience the Arctic night by driving through the snow-covered forest and on the frozen river. With a little luck, you will travel under a bright sky lit by the moon and the stars. Perhaps the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights – will appear to show you the way. Sip warm beverages and savour a snack by a campfire and learn more about the Northern Lights and Lapland. For safety reason, young children will travel in sledges driven by the tour guides. One parent may accompany them.
