Start this tour with 3 nights at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, situated near the wilderness of the Urho Kekkonen National Park. Stay in a Kelo Glass Igloo, a wonderful Log Cabin that also has a room with a stunning glass roof, so you can take in the enchanting beauty of the Northern Lights and the Lappish wilderness from the comfort of your own private hideaway. Then head to Rovaniemi, the "Capital of Lapland" and Santa's official Home Town. Here you will stay 2 nights at the fantastic and luxurious Arctic Treehouse Hotel.  

Day 1:  Ivalo - Kakslauttanen
Upon arrival at Ivalo Airport transfer to Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, and time at leisure.
