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

Day 2 Santa Claus Village, Reindeer Farm Visit & Sleigh Ride   
This great excursion combines nature, culture & the Christmas spirit! Come and discover the secrets of Santa Claus and his trusted helpers at the Santa Claus Village, where you can meet the man himself, visit his own official Post Office, do some unique shopping and enjoy a delicious lunch. Then in the afternoon, we head for the snowmobiles for a short drive to a local reindeer farm. Here, we meet the reindeer and the herders who look after them, try a short reindeer sleigh ride, take part in a special "Crossing of the Arctic Circle" ceremony, and then, after this splendid day, we return to town by snowmobile.

Day 3  Morning Husky Safari and Evening Northern Lights Search 
Today start with a Husky Safari. A brief drive takes you to the husky farm, where friendly dogs bark an enthusiastic ‘welcome’. Pair up for a sled-driving lesson, with 2 persons sharing the driving of each dog sled, then head out. Enjoy hot berry juice by an open fire & chat with the lead musher about these amazing, northern animals. The afternoon is free to relax, before an exciting Nothern Lights Search by Snowmobile, travelling through the dark, snow-covered forest, under the Arctic night sky, and onto the frozen river – hopefully the Northern Lights will appear & show you the way. Sip warm drinks & have a snack by the campfire, as you hear stories about the Aurora & Lapland. 

Day 4 Off to the Arctic Snow Hotel
Morning at leisure then afternoon transfer from central Rovaniemi to the Snow Hotel. Tonight you will stay in a Glass Igloo, a special domed cabin with a glass roof for watching the night sky! Enjoy a delicious 3 course dinner at the Ice Restaurant, then retire to your igloo for a very memorable evening. 

Day 5 Rovaniemi Departure
Optional ice fishing this morning if your flight time permits. Then your tour concludes with a transfer to Rovaniemi Airport.
