Day 1

Rovaniemi

Take time to explore the arctic wilderness surrounding the resort or relax and prepare for the adventure ahead as you settle into your accommodation, a modern panoramic hut.
Overnight: Rovaniemi  |  Dinner

Day 2

Husky Sleigh Ride & Private Riverside Sauna

Today you'll get up close and personal with some furry friends! A husky musher will meet you at reception, where you'll be walked to the nearby kennels and introduced to some friendly and excited Alaskan huskies. An important part of Finnish tradition, you'll learn how to navigate and steer a husky-drawn sleigh.

Before you know it, you'll set off on an adventurous wild husky run safari. Alongside the cunning huskies, an experienced instructor will lead you through Lapland's wintery landscapes. Each sled will have two riders, who will both have the opportunity to drive. Afterwards, you'll be treated to husky facts as you warm up with a cookie and a hot drink.

After this exhilarating experience, you'll be able to unwind at the resort's private Riverside sauna. You can also take advantage of the nearby hot tub that overlooks a stunning view of the surrounding river landscape.
Overnight: Rovaniemi  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3

Traditional Reindeer Ride

It's time to meet Santa's famous travel companions. Get ready for an unforgettable reindeer ride through snow-covered forests. Take plenty of pictures as you relax in a sleigh, and let the majestic reindeers lead you through nature, to the sounds of the reindeer caravan. Afterwards, you'll be able to ask plenty of questions and learn about reindeer herding, as you relax with a hot drink in a typical Finnish 'kota' teepee.

The rest of the day is at leisure. Why not head out and see if you can spot the famed Northern Lights?
