Day 1 Rovaniemi Arrival
On arrival in Rovaniemi, transfer from Rovaniemi Airport to your accommodation. Time at leisure.

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 Santa Claus Village, where you can meet the man himself, visit Santa’s Official Post Office, do some unique shopping and enjoy a delicious lunch. After lunch, we head for 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 this  splendid day,  we return back to town by snowmobile. At the end of the day everyone receives a "Crossing the Arctic Circle Certificate"!

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, with 2 persons sharing the driving of each snowmobile. Travel 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. Afternoon transfer 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 truly memorable dinner at the Ice Restaurant, then retire to your chosen Igloo – a very memorable evening. 

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