Special note about cruise and train travel during winter tours
As this package is operated in the Arctic, where it is common to experience extreme weather, we urge our clients to be aware that this itinerary may need to be changed with very short notice.
If any weather-related delays or changes occur during your tour, such as cancelled buses or trains, your travel consultant at Nordic Visitor will do their best to modify your travel arrangements within reasonable limits. Please also note that some of the activities in this tour are weather dependent, and in the unlikely event of a cancellation due to poor conditions an alternative will be offered.
All of Nordic Visitor’s Lapland travel packages should be considered adventure travel on account of being operated in the Arctic during sometimes extreme weather conditions and with the use of live animals for many excursions. For this reason, those booking a travel package in Lapland (except for those considered family travel packages) should consider themselves at least moderately physically fit and comfortable engaging in activities that are considered adventurous or strenuous.
Some things to keep in mind:
This is an independent. All accommodations and train / ferry tickets (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor, but travellers are ultimately responsible for getting to hotels and to any train / ferry departure points by the specified times.
There will be snow and ice on the ground, sometimes making it difficult to walk.
No luggage handling services will be available. You must be prepared and able to carry your own luggage in snowy conditions.
Accommodations will be simple in comparison to what you’d find in major urban centres.
WC facilities encountered during excursions may be unheated outhouses without running water.
During husky safaris where you share one team of huskies with another person, the person standing to drive the sled will need to kick to assist the dogs and may be required to run when sledding uphill
Reindeer and huskies run very fast. Those interested in participating in either a reindeer or husky safari should keep this in mind.
Some snowmobile safaris may require you to drive in the dark. Those interested in participating in snowmobile safaris should keep this in mind.
By law, those interested in driving a snowmobile must be able to present a valid driver’s license.
The safety of our travellers is our top priority at Nordic Visitor. We reserve the right to change or cancel departures if we feel the conditions will jeopardize the safety of our customers.
The driver of a snowmobile must be at least 18 years of age with a valid driver’s license.
Drinking alcohol is not allowed before driving a snowmobile.

The northern lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed. Evening excursions will operate according to the tour schedule, even in unfavourable viewing conditions, and our guides will do their utmost to determine the best possible location for sightings.
Activities & Guides
This is a self-guided tour with scheduled guided excursions and activities. All accommodations and included activities and services (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor in close co-operation with trusted local suppliers. You will not have a dedicated guide for the duration of your time in Lapland, but can expect a different qualified guide for each planned excursion. You are responsible for making your way to the specified meeting point for the start of each excursion. The time between scheduled excursions and activities will be free-time.
After booking with Nordic Visitor
After booking your package with Nordic Visitor, you will be contacted within two working days by one of our travel consultants, who will serve as your dedicated contact person for all of your travel needs before, during and even after your holiday. Before you travel, Nordic Visitor will provide you with a detailed personal itinerary and vouchers for all services and activities booked for your travel package. You will also be provided with Nordic Visitor’s 24/7 emergency helpline phone number where you can always reach a Nordic Visitor representative during your time in Lapland.
Please note: It takes time to make all the arrangements for a complete travel package. The travel consultant must book or reserve each included service individually with each supplier and personalize each itinerary accordingly. For this reason, we encourage our clients to book as far in advance as possible to ensure that your preferred travel dates, accommodation class and additional activities are available.
