Welcome to Rovaniemi - the official home of Santa and a real Winter Wonderland! Enjoy a festive Christmas with a little bit of everything - from reindeer and snowmobiles, to huskies and snow shoes. Unique Panorama Design Hut accommodation in a beautiful wilderness area.

23 December 2019: Rovaniemi Arrival 
Arrive in Rovaniemi and transfer to the Arctic Circle Wilderness Lodge, located by the rapids of the River Raudanjoki, just 20 minutes from Rovaniemi, in a dark, quiet area - ideal for Aurora searching! Pick-up your Winter outerwear rental during the transfer. Each Panorama Design Hut is made from timber and represents modern Finnish style, inspired by nature, with a large panoramic window next to the bed. Dinner and first overnight.

24 December: Husky Safari to the Arctic Forest
After breakfast, get ready to meet your new furry friends. First stop is the husky farm, where we greet these amazing and hard working dogs. After receiving driving and safety instructions, we set off into the forest, 2 persons per sled, for approximately 8-10km. The afternoon is spent at your leisure - you can relax in the cosy Lodge or make use of the complimentary Nordic skis or snowshoes to explore on your own. Tonight, a celebratory Christmas Eve dinner is served. 2nd overnight at the Lodge.  

25 December: Reindeer Farm including Sled Ride and Christmas Dinner
Enjoy breakfast, then ready, set, go... for a day of Christmas fun. This morning's excursion is with some local reindeer as they take you on a sled ride for approximately 45mins (3km). The small reindeer farm at the Lodge offers the chance to meet them up close. After lunch, you will have your own Private Meeting with Santa. Tonight, enjoy a Festive dinner before a further overnight at the Lodge. 

26 December: Santa's Village and Snowmobiling
After a leisurely breakfast, we make our way to Santa's Village where you will have time to yourself. See Santa's Home and Post Office as well as some great shops. Here the Arctic Circle runs right through the Village - you can even stand on it! Later this afternoon, we head off on another new adventure - a 2hr snowmobile excursion into the Arctic forest, along snowy trails. 2 persons per snowmobile. We have another wonderful dinner this evening before our last overnight at the Lodge.
