  • Day 1: Arrival in Finnish Lapland and Quest for the Northern Lights

    Your exciting holiday commences at Rovaniemi Airport where you are met and transferred to your comfortable hotel. We recommend having an early dinner before your tour starts. As dusk settles, the guide prepares you for an exciting guided snowmobile trip into the wild to explore the extraordinary beauty of Lapland’s northern lights*. Two people share one snowmobile and takes turns in driving. Later, after enjoying a delicious hot beverage and light snack around a campfire, you are returned to the hotel.

    *Please note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed. This evening snowmobile safari starts at approx. 17:30 is only operated on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays. If you are arriving on any other day of the week we will move this safari to day 2 or 3 of your itinerary.

  • Day 2: Visit to a Reindeer Farm, Sami Culture, and Santa Claus Village

    The day’s adventures begin with a guided snowmobile safari to a reindeer farm where you will hear more about reindeer husbandry and Lappish culture. You can take a reindeer ride and attend a special Lapp ceremony of crossing the Arctic Circle. In the afternoon the trip continues by car to Santa Claus Village with time to do shopping in Santa Claus’ Village. You will also have an opportunity to send postcards from Santa Claus’ main post office. During the day you get to meet Santa Claus himself and enjoy a delicious lunch in a cozy restaurant. And you will get a Diploma for crossing the Arctic Circle!

    *Please note that during December, transportation to the reindeer farm might be by car instead of snowmobile but snowmobiles will be ridden as part of the program.

  • Day 3: Dog sled Ride and Traditional Finnish Sauna

    In the moring you will be picked up by car and transferred to a husky farm for a thrilling dog sled ride through the frosty forest and over snowy meadows. The dogs howl and pull at their harnesses to get moving, and as soon as the anchor is lifted, the dogs fall silent and eagerly start pulling the sled through the woods and over the plains. Two people share one sled and takes turns in driving. Back at the farm, you will enjoy a hot beverage together with the musher before you will be transferred back to the hotel. The rest of the day is free to enjoy this spectacular destination, perhaps with some sauna relaxation.

Adventure Packages
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:
  • 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.

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.

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.
