Helsinki, Finland

Getting to the charming capital of Finland, Helsinki, you, first of all, find yourself in a dynamic cosmopolitan metropolis with a surprisingly relaxed and peaceful vibe, as if you are somewhere outdoors, and this is not by chance! Helsinki is primarily famed for its streamlined groundbreaking design that's harmoniously incorporated in the greenery of its spacious parks and gardens which cover one-third of the city’s territory. However, this seemingly reserved hub with Nordic character is suitable not only for serene strolls, it has a lot of surprises to win over your heart! To catch the flavor of Helsinki, visit the most recognized structure in the city, the imposing Helsinki Cathedral, followed by the bustling central Market Square and the unusual Rock Church. Being a city of contrasts, at night silent Helsinki transforms into a vibrant scene full of dining venues and cozy bars waiting to give you a warm welcome!

    Day 5: Snowmobile Safari & Visit of Santa Claus Village
    Today you enjoy a fantastic group tour during which you visit famous Lapland sights and try an exciting northern family activity.

    This day starts with a brief introduction to snowmobiling after which you start driving to the wilderness. In the middle of the ride, you are invited to warm up near an open fire and enjoy grill sausages with warm drinks. Snowmobile safari with a stop takes about 3-4 hours.

    *Note: In order to drive a snowmobile please make sure to have your driver licence with you. Children and adults without driving license can also join the safari sitting on a sledge. Tour is recommended from 4 years old.

    Due to unsuitable weather conditions (e.g. there is no snow or it is raining), a snowmobile ride will be replaced with a visit to the Arktikum Museum.

    After the safari, you continue your trip to the magical Santa Claus Village. Step into a fairy-tale and explore the wonders of the Snowman World with your loved ones. Moreover, don't miss a chance to make your childhood dream come true and send a postcard with a special Arctic Circle stamp from Santa Claus's main post office!

Your group is invited to gather around the campfire to hear the mushers telling about life with the huskies.
