Travel program

Day 1  | Arrival in Rovaniemi
Flight on own arrangements to Rovaniemi, Finland.

You’ll meet your driver who takes you to Santa’s Hotel Santa Claus where you’ll be staying for the next two nights. Take some time to settle down and just relax. If you wish to go to the sauna and relax for real after the journey, you can easily enjoy the sweet warmth of the hotel’s evening sauna.

Day 2 | Rovaniemi (B)
7:00-10:00 (Mon-Fri) / 08:00-11:00 (Sat-Sun) Scandinavian buffet breakfast

Start the day off by joining a two-hour husky safari – A short transfer takes you to the husky farm, where the enthusiastic arctic sled dogs greet you with barking and jumping – as if they were saying, come on, let’s go. Huskies are passionate about running and that is why they are eager to take off with you in their sledge. But first things first: instructions on safety and driving. You and a friend are sharing a team of huskies and can take turns in mushing(driving) and being a passenger. The route of 14-18 km (depending on weather and snow conditions as well as driving skills) takes you through an enchanted winter landscape. There will be stops when you can change places as musher and passenger. Back at the farm, we will gather around the campfire to hear the mushers tell about life with huskies. You will of course also have time to cuddle and pat your newfound friends before it is time to leave the husky farm.

In the evening, search for northern lights by snowmobile. Driving through the dark landscapes is an awesome experience itself but if the sky is clear and you are lucky, you can experience the beautiful show of northern lights, a star-studded sky or mystical full moon. Our goal is a wilderness camp at a location where you have a clear view of the northern sky. Good stories, a tasty snack and hot beverages are guaranteed, even if the Auroras would fail us tonight! The duration of the activity is 3 hours.

Day 3 | Departure (B)
7:00-10:00 (Mon-Fri) / 08:00-11:00 (Sat-Sun) Scandinavian buffet breakfast

Check-out time is at 11:00 so if you have an afternoon flight there is complimentary luggage storage at the hotel.

Private transfer to Rovaniemi airport and flights on own arrangements back home. We hope you had an incredible holiday and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
