We drive by car about twenty minutes to meet reindeer, these adorable half-wild animals. After all the reindeer are harnessed, we sit down in sleighs and wrap ourselves in warm fur blankets. The three-kilometre ride allows us to experience the true wilderness of Lapland and magical tranquillity of the forest. After half an hour ride we enjoy homemade berry juice by an open fire in a Lappish tepee, kota, and hear stories of reindeer and their annual cycle of life. You have also possibility take photos with your arctic traveling companion.
Duration: 2 hours 45 minutes
Husky Safari 3h
On these trips you will see how much fun dog sledding is as you learn to drive your own team of dogs. We start by getting winter overalls and boots for anybody needing them. Then it’s time for your driving lesson. We’ll teach the necessary driving skills and then set off with our huskies through the forest and over hills, following the guide’s team. Participants usually travel in pairs, each taking turns to drive and ride on the sled.
The route is suitable for beginners. It still requires good balance and strength and you will need to run up small hills. The time spent sledding and the speed will vary according to weather conditions.
3 Nights Rovaniemi
Our “Lapland Adventure starts after breakfast at the hotel. Rovaniemi which is one of the most visited place in Northern Europe is also known as the place where sun does not set. While sun does not set in July at all, in August sun disappears for few hours. What makes Rovaniemi special is the Arctic Circle going through the city. Once you cross the Arctic Circle you can feel the real chill of Artic climate. The region is also the place where The Lovers of Arctic Circle is filmed in 1998.
Take a tour stop at the village of Santa Claus. In the colourful village of Santa Claus, first visit the post office where you can send post cards. Then explore the village and look for Santa Claus to have a picture with him if you can find him!
The Arctic Circle is a circle of latitude that runs 66°33′45.9″ north of the Equator. It marks the southernmost latitude where the sun can stay continuously below or above the horizon for 24 hours – these phenomena are known as the Midnight Sun in the summer and the Polar Night (“Kaamos”) in the winter.
In Rovaniemi, the Arctic Circle runs through Santa Claus Village, located eight kilometres north of the city centre, where it is clearly marked. Santa Claus Village in Lapland is a popular place to cross the Arctic Circle: here the line is marked, and you can even get a certificate confirming the feat
