Rovaniemi has a lot more to offer in winter time apart from just Santa Claus! Enjoy a Husky Sled Ride, a Snowmobile Safari, a Northern Lights Picnic, an Aurora Hunt by Snowmobile or Reindeer Sleigh, and more. Your tour arrangements include accommodation, airport transfers and guided excursions from Rovaniemi.

Day 1 Arrival in Rovaniemi
On arrival in Rovaniemi transfer to your hotel. Time to explore the town, browse the shops or perhaps visit the fabulous Artikum Museum.

Day 2 Husky Safari and Northern Lights Picnic
Start the day with a husky safariThe friendly barking of the excited huskies welcomes you to the local husky farm. After a brief lesson, it's time to head off - as soon as the dogs start running, all you will hear is the swish of the sled runners, as you glide quietly across the snow. Stop for a break and a hot drink and the chance to switch drivers. The average length of the trail is 12-17 km and 2 persons share each sled.

This evening join a hunt for the fabled Northern Lights! Your guide will drive you out of the city, to the best spots for today's weather, so you can enjoy the arctic night skies and relax with a light meal, whilst hopefully gazing at the Aurora.

Day 4 Snowmobile Safari to the Wilderness
Today take a snowmobile safari along snowy tracks, past frozen rivers, lakes and forests, into the beautiful wilderness surrounding Rovaniemi.  There will be a stop for hot drinks and biscuits to warm you up, and the chance to swap drivers along the way, before the return snowmobile trip. 

Day 4 Day at Leisure, optional activities, and Evening Aurora Hunt By Snowmobile or Reindeer Sleigh
Today explore the town, or you might like to add an optional visit to Santa Claus Village, ice fishing, snowshoeing, more sled rides or Ice Floating. Then tonight hunt for the Aurora by snowmobile or whilst sitting snugly in a reindeer drawn sleigh, looking for the Northern Lights to paint the sky!
