Theo

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!

Upstairs there is a bedroom with double or twin beds and Panoramic windows looking out to the forest and the starry sky. There is a luxury ensuite bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities.

Then head back to your warm suite for a night of lying under the ink-black sky, gazing through the clear window to catch a glimpse of the incredible Northern Lights.

Santa Claus Village and Reindeers

Today you will have the morning free so this is your chance to visit the man himself, Santa Claus! Take the short walk from your hotel to Spend time in Santa’s Village and enjoy the magical Christmas atmosphere. Spend as much time as you wish walking around and enjoying all that his village has to offer, you can see Santa’s post office where all the letters from children all over the world are sent, sorted and delivered, the elves workshop, independent shops with Christmas souvenirs, Lappish crafts and of course Santa’s office, where you can go along and meet Santa Claus.

In the afternoon you will be collected for your visit to a local reindeer farm to meet the famous gentle Lappish creatures up close. Before you set off you will be kitted out with warm outer wear and boots, so you can stay cosy and warm as you explore the Taiga forest by sleigh on your reindeer safari (around 3 hours). Once you arrive with your guide to the farm, you will be invited to take your seat in the reindeer sleigh. The sleigh is suitable for adults and children to sit together and as you glide through the snowy forest and white scenery, you may spot some other arctic animals, or at least see their tracks in the snow. When you come back from the safari, which is around 2.5 kms, a warm cup of coffee or tea and traditional snacks will wait for you on the farm. The herder will explain all about their lifestyle and the tradition of reindeer husbandry in Lapland. This is the best time to ask questions and feed your curiosity!

Husky Safari

After a buffet breakfast at your accommodation, you will be picked up for your husky safari. First of all you will be given warm clothing (recommended as it can be very cold during the safari), and then your guide will drive you to a lovely local husky farm, around 30 minutes drive from Rovaniemi set amidst the magical snowy forests and surrounding landscapes.

At the farm, you will be welcomed by the mushers and the excited barking of their lovely dogs. You will be introduced to your dog team and will be given the safety instructions and some tips how to drive the sleigh. Once ready, you will embark on your husky sled ride , two people per sleigh, dashing through the winter scenery for about 45 mins. You are always 2 adults maximum for the sleigh ride (one driving, and one passenger sitting in the sleigh) and you will have the opportunity to switch the driver and passenger halfway if you wish.

After the safari, the mushers will take time to share with you an insight into their life style, explain about the job of a musher, how they train their dogs and answer all your questions around an open fire. All the dogs are photo enthusiasts, so do not forget to bring your camera with you !
