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.
