Day 1: Rovaniemi

Welcome to Finland, an exciting adventure in Lapland awaits you. Upon arrival at Rovaniemi Airport you'll be met and transferred to your hotel. You might wish to head outside this evening in an attempt to spot the elusive but dazzling Northern Lights, being close to the arctic circle gives you a great chance of spotting them, provided the weather is clear and the conditions are right.

Day 2: Rovaniemi

This morning we make our way to a Reindeer farm where we join a sleigh ride through the beautiful winter wonderland. Our journey will take us through magical landscapes and snow covered forest whilst the noise of the reindeer caravan will be the only soundtrack in this peaceful setting. Sit back and breath in the fresh air as the reindeer gently pulls us back to the farm. Back at the farm we'll enjoy a warming drink while listening to stories from the reindeer herders life. Returning to the hotel this afternoon, the rest of the day is at leisure.

Day 3: Rovaniemi

You'll have the option to head out on an exhilarating ride through the wilds of Lapland today. We jump on snowmobiles and take off into the Arctic wilderness. Your guide will lead the way as you pass frozen trees and head down tracks which bring you to some of the incredible natural landscapes of this region. Stopping for lunch, you can expect a delicious warming soup prepared by an open fire. With a bit of luck and the right weather conditions we'll get the change to drive across pure, untouched powder snow. For more information please click here.

This evening you'll have the option to travel to a frozen lake, where, after getting wrapped up in a thick rescue suit, you'll ease in and enjoy a relaxing float. Whilst it might sound a little different, the high quality rescue suit will keep off the cold and let your mind rest as you relax under the nights sky. Hopefully we will witness a mystical display from the Northern Lights.

Day 4: Rovaniemi

We head out on a exciting journey today as we start with a visit to a husky farm before being whisked away on sleighs pulled by our furry friends. Making our way across the pristine winter forest close to the Arctic Circle, each sled will have 2 riders who will take it in turns to control the reins. Passing through beautiful scenery we'll witness the power of these incredible animals before we return to their home where we have the opportunity to learn more about the life of a husky and enjoy a hot drink to warm us up.

Returning to Rovaniemi you'll be transferred to your special overnight spot, a glass igloo with fantastic views of the sky above. Before you settle in to your cosy surroundings you'll enjoy a sumptuous 3 course dinner in the incredible ice restaurant. Wrap up warm as everything is made from ice.
