Full description
Explore Lapland's capital town, Rovaniemi, and get a unique glimpse into life in the Arctic! Your exquisite day will start with an easy 15-minute hike. Here you will enjoy the beautiful scenery of Rovaniemi city. Climb to the hilltop of Ounasvaara, the highest point in Rovaniemi, and find yourself in the middle of a dreamy Finnish forest. After your hike, learn about the Arctic in the Arktikum museum. Here you will have the chance to visit the exhibition and see arctic animals, indigenous people (Sami), and get some knowledge on local history from the ice age to the present. You can also find information and a display of Northern lights. Next, continue your tour and visit the husky and reindeer farm. Feel the excitement of a speedy sleigh ride with energetic huskies, and relax on a comfy sleigh as your reindeer take you into a tranquil forest. Warm yourself up with a coffee or tea and enjoy some cookies. Finally, the climax of the tour involves the iconic character of Rovaniemi, Santa Claus. Visit the Santa Claus Village and get a certificate for crossing the Arctic Circle line. Spend your time in the fairy-tale village full of shops with arctic products, and, of course, meet Santa Claus himself! Inside the village is the official Santa Claus post office, where the elves will help you send messages to your loved ones.

    Not really matching the picture and content

    Departure was 1h delayed due to the pick-up of some people. Most of the activities take place at the Santa Claus village. We didn’t get to a reindeer farm, as it was mentioned, but rather just a 1km tour with reindeer’s sleigh at Santa Claus village. The husky tour last less than 5 minutes. We didn’t get to the snowmobile museum. And for a 7hour tour at that price, lunch is not even included. I could have done the same on my own for half the price. The positive note though, we had 2 nice guides.
