You will be greeted by a driver and then transferred from Rovaniemi airport to your hotel. You will get to relax and be able to enjoy a nice family meal before your adventure really begins tomorrow.
After serving in the Royal Marine Commando's for 5 years and working as a professional sailing & outdoor instructor, I was looking for a place to fulfill my vision and dreams. I found it here in the Finnish Lapland, where I can share the natural phenomena, opportunities, and beauty this amazing place has to offer. Lapland is also a great place for me to raise my family. Local nature connects people as you can share beautiful moments with strangers in very peaceful environments. Winters here are long, and without doubt this is the hardest job I have ever done. But I love it and I can promise the warmest of welcomes and an amazing time!
Today, you will be visiting a husky farm where you will learn all about huskies and just how important they are to the Finnish people. You will start the day with breakfast again before being taken to the husky farm.
A local will guide you around the farm, where you will learn all about huskies and how to use them to pull a sledge as well as hearing some stories about the dogs. Following this, you will embark on a 10km husky ride where you can use the mushing skills you would have learnt to guide the dogs around the beautiful snowy landscape.
You will then return to the hotel where you will have dinner and have some time to relax by the fire or enjoy some well earned relaxation time in the sauna.
After a buffet breakfast at the hotel, you will embark on an exciting 2 Hour snowmobile ride around the snow covered forests of Luosto.
You will be taught how to operate the snowmobiles and taken through all the safety precautions before being able to drive them yourself. There will be chances to stop and admire the stunning views as well as changing the driver so everyone can a go.
After this, you will head off on your Northern Lights tour. The tour takes you in the beautiful snowy landscapes of wilderness, where there is no light pollution and a good possibility to see the Northern lights. Before the tour we will plan our destinations carefully by checking local weather forecast, cloudiness and space data.
We will make a campfire and you hear interesting facts about Northern lights, Lappish nature and history. Your local guide will also give you information about how to photograph Northern lights and help you do it.
