Visit Santa Claus and Northern Lights Tour

Today why not take the short journey by taxi to Santa Claus Village  (around 15 minutes) and enjoy the 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, many independent shops with Christmas souvenirs, Lappish crafts and of course Santa’s office, where you can go along and meet Santa Claus.

Get ready to tick the Northern Lights Wilderness Tour off your bucket list as you prepare to spend a magical evening exploring and seeking the magical Aurora Borealis.

You’ll be collected from your hotel, and put on the warm outerwear and boots before joining a small group and a professional guide to search through the wilderness on your evening hunt for the Aurora Borealis, and have the opportunity to drive through the Lapland wilderness and explore the arctic nature. During stops you may take a short walk through the very old, white and snowy forest or to the top of fells, you may cross a wooden bridge over powerful rapids, or enjoy the silence on a lake beach and tranquility of a landscape of ice and snow… Hopefully, with Auroras dancing over your heads!

This experience is almost always done in the complete dark and you see the scenery in a completely new and beautiful way. You will get the opportunity to build a fire, outdoors, next to a log hut or in a teepee. Your guide will teach you how to light a fire in the traditional way, using silver birch bark and flint. While waiting for the first greenish arches to appear above your head, as the kettle starts to boil, your guide will share with you their knowledge and passion about the forest and its wildlife, and the northern lights. You will have a hot beverage to warm you up, grill your own sausages over the open fire and enjoy it with the famous Finnish mustard.

We can’t guarantee that you will see them due to weather conditions, but  your local guide is expert at searching for the best possible place to see them, and will help you to take the best photos, and will also taking photos themselves with a professional camera, and share them with you.

At between 11 and midnight you’ll return to your hotel.

One of the highlights of your trip will be spent riding with your own husky dog team. When you arrive at the farm you will be amazed how excited the dogs are to start their run through the beautiful landscape, and as you set off through the forest it is an unforgettable experience. You’ll be able to drive your own team of dogs as you ride the sleigh as the ”musher” and have time to spend with the dogs after your exhilarating ride. They love the attention and are more than happy to have a tummy rub and photos!

Following this, you will get the chance to visit the most famous Lappish animal, close up – during the reindeer farm visit. Your guide will drive you in a very small group to one of the most traditional reindeer farms in Lapland, just outside of Rovaniemi on the  shores of a peaceful lake. You will meet the reindeer and explore the Taiga forest on a reindeer sled ride, before warming up inside the herders hut for a warm berry juice and snack, where the herders will tell you more about their life with the reindeer.
