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:
Please be advised that in peak winter months, daylight is limited to a few hours — usually between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. However, the light reflecting off the snow can make the days seem brighter.
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 can run moderately fast and the terrain may be uneven in some spots, so the sled rides can be bumpy at times.
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.
Starting with dinner on 23rd December and ending with breakfast on 26th December, all meals are included in this tour. The meals are a mix of traditional Finnish foods, Sami foods and international dishes. The dinners are either 3-course set menus or buffets. A typical 3-course dinner consists of: a starter of salad or soup, a main course such as meat or fish and a dessert such as cake and ice cream. The Christmas Eve dinner is normally served as a traditional Christmas buffet with a variety of dishes such as different salads and fish choices, a Finnish Christmas ham with potato casserole and carrot purée, dill potatoes, gingerbread biscuits, Christmas chocolates, plum mousse and other treats.
If you have any food allergies, please let your travel consultant know as soon as possible so we can inform the local suppliers and hotels.
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.
