What to expect

Sample the capital of Lapland, Rovaniemi in this 6-7-hour tour around the Arctic Circle border.

Experience, feel, taste, and smell this whole day tour by beginning the day with an invigorating breath of fresh morning air in the arctic forest about a 25 minutes drive away from the city.

Wake up your body and senses when you trek through the deep snowy forest by snowshoes! Feel the difference between wearing snowshoes. Afterward, you will visit Lapland’s VIP animals, the reindeers, and huskies. Experience one of the most popular winter activities by going on a short sleigh ride with the reindeers and/or huskies, which is already included in the price.

Then, get excited to meet the legend himself at Santa Claus Village. The arctic circle border is also there, and upon crossing it will you receive your Arctic Circle Certificate. Make sure to stop by Santa’s Post Office which provides a one-of-a-kind special Christmas delivery service with an official Christmas stamp.

For lunch, have a Finnish style buffet at Santa Claus Village.
