Day 3: December 24, Husky Farm Visit and Safari
Husky Safari
Pickup time: Morning

Embark on a short transfer to the husky farm, where enthusiastic Arctic sled dogs will greet you with barking and jumping – as if they were saying, “Come on, let’s go.” Huskies are passionate about running, and that is why they are eager to take off with you in their sledge.
Instructions on safety and driving will be provided. You and a friend are sharing a team of huskies and can take turns mushing (driving) and being a passenger. The route of 14-18 km (depending on weather and snow conditions as well as driving skills) takes you through an enchanted winter landscape. There will be stops when you can change places as musher and passenger. You will also have some photogenic moments amidst the stunning nature and with the beautiful dogs. Once they have run off some energy, they are calmer and let you enjoy the silent drive.
Back at the farm, gather around the campfire to hear the mushers tell about life with huskies. You will, of course, also have time to cuddle and pat your newfound friends before it is time to leave the husky farm.

Day 4: December 25, Snowmobile Safari & Santa Claus Village

Snowmobile Safari
Experience a thrilling, unforgettable trip riding a snowmobile – the best way to enjoy the beautiful nature of Lapland surrounding Rovaniemi.
After the briefing, ride behind our guide on snowy hillsides and in forests, crossing frozen rivers and swamps. See plenty of nature during this half-day trip into the wild! You may drive or sit as a passenger as the snowmobiles are equipped with a passenger seat, too. Speed over rolling fells, carve across the ice of frozen lakes, and sprint through snow-laden woods as you absorb the chill Arctic air. This safari is suitable for all people who want to experience the nature and modern snowmobiles.
Our snowmobiles are the newest model of Lynx Adventurer ACE snowmobiles, modern, silent, ecologic, and very easy to drive. Transfers from your hotel to the starting point and back, all equipment, winter clothes, and boots are included. Warm beverages and snacks are offered during the safari.

Santa Claus Village
After a memorable Snowmobile safari, you will be transferred to Santa Claus Village, and you will have all your afternoon there until you meet your driver.
You can meet Santa Claus and cross the magical Arctic Circle every day at the Santa Claus Village in Rovaniemi. There are many souvenir shops as well as Santa’s Main Post Office, program service companies, and cafes and restaurants in the Santa Claus Village. And of course, Santa is there too, in his chamber every day of the year.
The Arctic Circle is a circle of latitude that runs 66°33′45.9″ north of the Equator. It marks the southernmost latitude where the sun can stay continuously below or above the horizon for 24 hours – these phenomena are known as the Midnight Sun in the summer and the Polar Night (“Kaamos”) in the winter.
In Rovaniemi, the Arctic Circle runs through Santa Claus Village, located eight kilometers north of the city Centre, where it is clearly marked. Santa Claus Village in Lapland is a popular place to cross the Arctic Circle: here the line is marked, and you can even get a certificate confirming the feat.
Stay overnight at Scandic City Hotel, Rovaniemi.

Day 5: December 26, Airport Transfer
You will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to Rovaniemi airport.
