Visit Santa Village

Ride a snowmobile

Meals included: Breakfast

Transportation: Private Bus (1:00h)

Of course, according to legend, Santa Claus is from Lapland, and he embarks on his yearly Christmas mission from here!

Today you'll visit the quirky Santa Village, a toy town which draws visitors from all over the world. See the elves and the big man himself and check out the toy workshop. It's Christmas all year round in this crazy place - so this could be a great opportunity to get a decoration for your Christmas tree that will remind you of your trip.

After your visit to Santa's village, the Christmas spirit continues! Your guide will show you the basics before you zoom off on a snowmobile through the snow-covered landscape, feeling like James Bond. You pull up alongside Sami reindeer herders. The Sami people are local to the region and have bred reindeer for many generations. It is part of their culture. Learn about Sami culture over a cup of tea in a tent. Then, take a wintery sleigh ride with the gentle giants!

Ride a husky sled

Relax in a wood sauna

Stay in a cabin in the wild

Meals included: Breakfast, Dinner

Transportation: Private Bus (1:00h)

Your day starts in a flurry of activity: You're wished good morning by the wagging tails of fluffy huskies! You climb on husky sleds and hold on tight as the excited pack dash through the snow with you. After you've reached the husky kennel, their keepers invite you for some hot drinks and a sweet bite and tell you about their beloved dogs.

After snuggling with the dogs for one last time, you say goodbye and travel to your wilderness escape. We've booked a private sauna hut just for your group, where you can experience sauna the traditional way. Who will dare to run outside and dive into the snow after a session?!

You spend the night in rustic wooden cabins surrounded by Finland's beautiful nature. After dinner with your new companions, get cosy in front of the flickering fireplace or head outside. Far from the lights of the city, you have your first opportunity to see the Northern Lights! Who will spot them first?

Free time in winter wonderland

Hunt for northern lights

After a delicious breakfast, take your time to explore the natural beauty around the wilderness resort, build igloos or start a snowball fight. This really is winter wonderland! Warm up over lunch together.

Back in Rovaniemi, wrap yourself in your warmest clothes and prepare for an unforgettable night: At nightfall, expert Northern Lights hunters pick you up. Venture out into the vast arctic wilderness and spend a magical night in the snow-covered landscape, the night sky lit up with mesmerizing dancing lights. It's impossible to guarantee that the lights will be visible as bad weather could appear, but in this region and this time of year, the chances are high! The pros show you how to capture the spectacle on your cameras, so you will always remember this magical moment. Enjoy a snack by the fire to end the night.

Winter Wonders in Lapland

The whole trip was wonderful. Some of the great activities were reindeer sleigh ride and husky safari. Also the untouched winter nature with sunlight gave a real feeling of winter wonderland. The highlight was, of course, seeing the northern lights. I am so happy that weather allowed us to see the lights. Overall, it was fantastic experience and very well organised.

I would highly recommend this trip to Rovaniemi. A winter holiday is so different to a normal holiday and Indico had everything planned to perfection. The accommodation was perfect and riding with Reindeer, Huskies and on snow mobiles gave me a new experience every day of the trip
