ROVANIEMI WINTER ADVENTURE

7 days | 6 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.

DAY 2

Morning: Reindeer Safari to Santa’s Village (4 hours)

Lapland is well-known for Santa Claus and his reindeer. Sitting in the sleigh pulled by the reindeer we make our way from the Reindeer Farm to Santa’s Village along the snowy trails of the wintry forest. 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.

DAY 3

Morning: Husky Safari (10 km – 2 hours 30 minutes)

We go by car to the Husky Farm, where we are greeted by the friendly Huskies, eager to go for a ride in the frosty forest and over the snowy meadows. We will learn how to control our own team of dogs and enjoy the quiet ride once we are on our way. The driving time with the Huskies is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Our safari ends at the farm with a well-deserved hot drink.

DAY 4

Free time. We recommend the following safari:

Afternoon : White silence on snowshoes (3 hours)
Experience the silence and beauty of wintery forests on this guided snowshoe hike. Have a break by an open fire and enjoy some snacks while the only sound you will hear is the sough of the forest and the campfire. This safari is suitable for children 12 years or older. (Supplement 79€).

DAY 5

Evening: Snow mobile safari searching for the Northern lights

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.

DAY 6

Morning: Fishing experience by snowmobile (3 hours 30 minutes)

Today we go on an ice fishing safari to a wilderness lake. We head north on a snowmobile trail that takes us along the frozen River Ounasjoki and through snowy forests up into the hills, where we can admire the beautiful surrounding countryside of Lapland. We follow the trail through white, snow-covered fields and will arrive at a small wilderness lake. The silence will envelop you as you prepare to go fishing. Try your hand at traditional ice fishing and fry your catch over a campfire. Afterwards, return to town for a well-earned rest.
