What You'll Do

Enjoy a fun filled break to Lapland. Get off the beaten track and experience all that the Finnish wonderland has to offer, with a husky tour, a reindeer ride to Santa through the Magic Forest with a meeting with Santa Claus and a night time adventure on a snow train in search of the Northern Lights.

Your trip will start with a transfer from Rovaniemi airport to your accommodation. You will have the chance to relax before starting the adventure the next day.

During your stay enjoy a 2 hour Husky Adventure, have time to meet and pet them and have your photo taken with them. See how much the huskies love pulling you through the white-scape of forest trails and hills. You’ll have the novel opportunity to be the “musher”, steering and controlling the huskies yourself!

Embark on a Snow train journey through a winter wonderland, venturing far from city lights in search of the Aurora Borealis. After travelling through the snowy landscape, you’ll reach a traditional Lappish kota deep in the wilderness, where you’ll gather around a blazing fire for light snacks and hot drinks. The Aurora expert will assist with the best  camera settings to capture the Northern Lights.

This trip focuses on the Aurora, allowing you to appreciate the serene, snowy forest and silence. While no one can promise a 100% sighting of the Northern Lights, this trip offers an excellent opportunity.

The Adventure doesn’t stop there… a reindeer awaits you, ready to guide you to Santa Claus’ hidden cottage. Hop into a snug sled and start a journey through the Magic Forest. Helpful Elves accompany you on the quest to discover Santa’s Hut, a place brimming with magic. With their assistance, you’ll uncover a Secret Pathway in the snow leading to an extraordinary destination. Warm drinks and cookies will be served.
