The structure & approach of this trip

We work together with a number of Resorts in Finnish Lapland . In this example we assume the Vaattunki Wilderness Resort, just 18KM north of Rovaniemi. An excellent starting point for a trip to Santa Claus in Finland. Know that people from all over the world are vying for a spot in one of the resorts in that region. That is why we also keep in touch with a number of resorts so that we can always offer you the best options. The resorts we choose within our portfolio all have an excellent reputation , a super professional team and a very high level of service.
Their view on sustainability is also important to us .

1st day Rovaniemi
You arrive at Rovaniemi airport in the evening.
Depending on the times, you can travel to the Resort by shuttle or taxi in about half an hour.

The Vaattunki Resort welcomes you!
We have chosen a room with sleeping loft, including toilet and shower in 'Stella Cabin' for this example. There is another cheaper option in this Resort & there are a number of more luxurious options available. We will be happy to inform you about this as soon as we start a conversation.

The Northern Lights are everywhere
Who knows, you might be 'received' by the northern lights when you get out on the first evening. We have been that lucky before. A very special extra when that happens. Take a good look around!

Experience the week
Your week starts with a visit to Santa Village. You visit Santa Claus directly on the first day.
Your week will also be packed with special activities. See the daily programme.

On the road with a Snowmobile

You will go on an excursion to the Ice Hotel Finland. You do that in a very special way. Together with a guide you will zoom through the winter forests and landscapes on a cool snowmobile. A super cool event!

Arctic BBQ outdoors

You will participate in an Aurora Borealis picnic. You will make a fire together with your guide at freezing temperatures. Thanks to your thermal clothing, you will sit comfortably in the Arctic environment and enjoy a nice hot drink and a BBQ. In Finland this is usually a sausage or a piece of salmon. The guide prepares this. There's a good chance that a BBQ will never be this tasty again :)

This compact trip to Santa Claus in Rovaniemi is very attractive because we know how to combine the visit to Santa Claus with special excursions on the other days.

Arctic Husky safari

On this trip you will not only cuddle Huskies, you will also join a team of sled dogs on a truly wonderfully long ride through the Arctic landscape. Watch these beautiful four-legged friends unleash their strength and pull your sled. Also enjoy the landscape. Oh yes, cuddling is always allowed :)

Stars and reindeer

In English it is called Polar Night, and there is perhaps no better word for the pitch-black Arctic night with its beautifully sparkling starry sky. The icing on the cake is of course the Aurora Borealis. You can experience this in a very authentic way on a ride through the winter forests with a reindeer sleigh.
