Celebrate the New Year above the Arctic Circle at Rovaniemi in a winter wonderland of snowy surroundings. Enjoy a festive dinner and experience some great winter fun activities - a Snowmobile Safari, Husky Safari, and an Northern Lights Safari by Reindeer Sled.

Day 1   29 December: Arrival in Rovaniemi
On arrival in Rovaniemi you will be transferred to your accommodation. Dinner and 4 nights in a Design Panorama Hut at the Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge, located by the rapids of River Raudanjoki. Just 20 minutes from Rovaniemi, it sits in an area of quiet and dark - just right for Aurora Borealis searching! Each hut is made from timber and represents modern Finnish style, is inspired by nature and has a large panoramic window next to the bed. Dinner and overnight at the Lodge.

Day 2   30 December: Northern lights Snowmobile Safari 
Breakfast at the lodge and the day is then free. Snow shoes and Nordic skis are available for use throughout your stay, so you can explore the snowy landscapes at your leisure. Or you might like to join one of the optional excursions offered - these include ice fishing by snowmobile, a visit to Santa Claus Village or Ranua Zoo Arctic Wildlife Park, and more. This evening, head off on a fun, 2 hour snowmobile excursion into the Arctic forest, along snowy trails. 2 persons share each snowmobile and the sight of the snowmobiles with their riders' headlamps lighting the way is truly magical! Hopefully, the fabled Aurora will appear and light your way. Dinner and 2nd overnight at the Lodge.

Day 3   31 December: Husky Safari
After breakfast, get ready to meet your new furry friends. Your first stop is at the husky farm, where we greet these amazing and hard working dogs, and receive driving and safety instructions before setting off into the forest. The sled route is approximately 8-10km and 2 persons share each sled. The afternoon is at leisure - you can relax in the cosy Lodge or perhaps make use of the complimentary Nordic skis or snowshoes to explore on your own. Tonight, a celebratory New Year dinner is served. 3rd overnight at the Lodge.  

Day 4   01 January: Day at Leisure and Aurora Reindeer Safari 
Happy New Year! Breakfast at the lodge and the day is then free, or you can join one of the great optional excursions. In the late afternoon, get ready for a wonderful 3 hour reindeer farm visit and sleigh ride. If you are lucky, maybe the Aurora will appear. Sit back and be mesmerized, as you sit cosily in your sled. Dinner and 4th overnight at the Lodge.
