    Later we invite you to a magical winter forest where you have a chance to enjoy a blaze of Auroras. Primetime for watching the Nordic Lights is between 9 pm and midnight, so your group tour starts late in the evening. While you enjoy the winter fairy forest, your guide prepares some snacks and hot drinks for you at our outside camp. 

    Group transportation by car and transfers from your hotel and back are included.

    Please note: winter clothing is provided for the tour

    Day 4: 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 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.

    Please, note: In order to drive a snowmobile please make sure to have your driver licence with you.
    Due to unsuitable weather conditions (e.g. there is no snow or it is raining), a snowmobile ride and reindeer sleigh will be replaced with a visit to the Arktikum Museum

    After the safari, you continue your trip to Santa Claus Village where you have some time to visit the Snowman World and attend a real ice bar in it. You can also buy some traditional Finnish souvenirs and send postcards with special Arctic Circle stamp from Santa Claus main post office.

    Please, note: Snowman World is open from beginning of December to end of March.

    After the tour, you are transferred back to the hotel.

    Day 5: Northern Lights Seeking in Reindeer Sledge
    Today you have afternoon at leisure to explore the surrounding area on your own.

    In the evening you are invited for reindeer safari through a fairy-tale winter forest. During the group tour you learn why reindeer sleigh is a traditional mode of transport in Lapland, and get one more unique chance to catch the Nordic Lights, as the ride takes place at night-time away from the city lights.

    After about an hour ride you arrive at a reindeer farm. Here you are treated with a cup of coffee with a sweet bun, as well as with stories about a lifestyle of a reindeer herder.

    Following the tour you return to your hotel.

    You then have short instructions on safety and driving and enjoy a group guided husky safari. The route of about 15 km (9 miles) takes you through a fantastic winter landscape. During the stops you can change places as a driver and passenger. After the adventure ride lasting 1-1.5 hours you spend some time at the husky farm. Your group is invited to gather around the camp fire to hear the mushers telling about life with the huskies. 

    Please note: winter clothing is provided for the tour
