  • Rovaniemi: Santa Claus Village and Arctic Circle

    1. Rovaniemi: Santa Claus Village and Arctic Circle

    Depart after 10:00 AM and visit Santa Claus in his main office in Lapland. Discover a place where it is Christmas all year round. Have a private meeting with Santa Claus, and then send greetings to all your friends from Santa's Post Office.  Also, the Arctic Circle cuts right through Santa Claus's Village. A white line denoting the Arctic Circle, at its position in 1865, is painted across the park. You will officially enter the Arctic area when you cross the line. The line is a very popular photo spot for all visitors. Cross the circle and get an Arctic Circle certificate. Have the opportunity to taste the traditional Christmas buffet with lunch at Santa's place.

    The guide helped us arrange all the things and solved our questions promptly. We only need to follow her and enjoy the tour. We didn’t need to do any preparation work.

  • Rovaniemi: Snowmobile to Reindeer, Husky Farm, Santa Village

    2. Rovaniemi: Snowmobile to Reindeer, Husky Farm, Santa Village

    Start with pickup from your hotel in Rovaniemi. Then hop on your snowmobile and first go directly to the Reindeer Farm. Admire these graceful animals and enjoy a short sleigh ride with them. Next, make your way to the Husky Farm where you will interact with these beautiful, loyal, and energetic companions. Learn more about the history of these working dogs, and be pulled on a short sledge ride to see them in action! Once you are back from the farm visits, enjoy some free time to explore the Santa Claus Village. Experience the festive atmosphere, cross the Arctic Circle, meet Santa Claus. Visit the Post Office on-site and do some gift shopping, before being returned to your hotel.

    THE SNOWMOBILE TRAIL WAS UNBELIEVABLE!!THE ONLY THING THAT DIDN'T LIKE WAS THE HUSKLY SAFARI. IT WAS TOO SHORT. IT WAS JUST 5 MIN. IF IT WAS 10 MIN MORE IT WOULD BE EXCELLENT.

  • Rovaniemi: Snowmobile Tour with Reindeer Farm Experience

    3. Rovaniemi: Snowmobile Tour with Reindeer Farm Experience

    Begin the day's adventure with hotel pickup in Rovaniemi. Before setting off on the tour, your professional guide will demonstrate how to correctly handle the snowmobiles. Cruise along through the snowy terrain, led by your guide the entire way. Arrive to the reindeer farm, where local herders will share insights on the herding lifestyle and what it is like to be a reindeer herder in the 21st century. After a briefing from the herders, drive your own reindeer sledge on a short, 1,640-foot-long ride. Your newly obtained skills will be rewarded with a reindeer-sledge driver's license, which you can take home as a fun souvenir. To round off the experience and defrost a bit, enjoy warm refreshments at the farm.

    We had an amazing trip, one could think that due to the lack of tourists they would provide less to save on costs but it actually felt like a VIP personal trip! They have put in the effort for just the 2 of us as they would for a large group. Couldn't recommend more.

Excellent activities! The distribution between the activities (reindeer farm, husky breeding, snowmobile tour) is very well done, the snowmobile tour is pleasant, and allows you to see magnificent landscapes. The guides are very friendly, and available if you have any questions. However, it does not specify that there are two people per snowmobile, so you must alternate the pilots.
