Finnish Lapland
Rovaniemi

Finnish Lapland is a region full of contrasts as every season is uniquely different from each other. In the wintertime, Lapland is a true winter wonderland and in summer there are endless white nights and peaceful arctic nature as far as the eye can see. In Finnish Lapland you can spend the night in a glass igloo and if you are lucky admire the amazing Northern Lights from your bed. Rovaniemi, situated right on the Arctic Circle is the capital of Lapland and is the official home of Santa Claus! Experience the magic of the Northern Lights, Snowmobiling along the frozen river Ounasjoki. Take a breathtaking dog sledding safari and of course, visit the great man himself, Santa Claus.

This tour heads north on a snowmobile trail that takes you along the frozen River Ounasjoki and through snowy forests up into the hills, where you can admire the surrounding vast forest and wilderness of Lapland.

At 20.00: Join a “Discover the Northern Lights photography tour” (max 8 participants)
Go Aurora hunting with a professional wilderness/photography guide.
During the night we normally go to 2-3 different locations which are always chosen according to local weather conditions and photographic opportunities. This means that if we have a clear sky and a possibility to see the northern lights 100 km away, we will take the chance and drive you there. There is however never any guarantee that we will find the aurora.

After a short drive from town you will arrival at a husky farm where the friendly dogs will bark an enthusiastic welcome to you. Before departing on the safari, you will be given instructions on how to control the sleds. The safari gives you the opportunity to experience something unique; the ties between the musher and the dogs formed on a joint expedition into the wilderness. You soon learn that behind its ice-blue gaze is a friendly canine character who works closely with people. One person will be driving, and the other person will sit in the sledge (possible to change halfway)
Once you return to the farm enjoy some hot berry juice by an open fire and chat with the head musher about the huskies.
