After lunch, we head to the snowmobiles for a short drive to a local reindeer farm. Here we will 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 such a splendid time, return to town. At the day's end, everyone receives a 'Crossing the Arctic Circle' Certificate!

Day 3  Day at leisure
Today relax and enjoy the sights of Rovaniemi. Time to explore the town, browse the shops and perhaps visit the fabulous Artikum Museum. Depending on the day of the week, you might like to try one of the great optional activities available - husky safaris, ice fishing, evening hunts for the Aurora by snowmobile, husky or reindeer sled or car and more - please enquire.

Day 4 Off to Snowman World and Overnight in Stunning Glass Villa
Morning transfer to Snowman World. Here, you can spend the whole day. Meet the Snowman family Flake, Frost and Aurora, who all spend their winters in the Arctic Circle, studying winter sports, ice and snow sculpting and Aurora hunting. They can share these magical things with you and will also help you to enjoy the arctic outdoors, while you try new and fun things like sliding down the ice hills and ice skating.

Tonight's stay is in a Glass Villa - a beautifully crafted apartment of 40m2 with living area, kitchenette and an entire wall of glass. There is also a separate bedroom upstairs with a glass ceiling and your own private hot tub outside. Your stay includes a delicious breakfast in Restaurant Ensilumi. What better way to relax after a busy day, than to gaze out to the Arctic night's sky, from the warmth of your villa? Perhaps the fabled Aurora Borealis will appear!
