You will arrive in Rovaniemi and there you shall have private transport to the Apukka resort where you will be shown your luxurious glass igloo. You also get to experience a welcome dinner featuring local, regional cuisine.
Next up is the Aurora hunt on the snow train. The cozy carriage of the snow train will take you through a veritable winter wonderland. You will journey through the serene artic landscape to a hut in the wilderness. This is where the magic happens, and the aurora borealis, as if by some miracle, appears. While you wait, you get to enjoy more local flavor as you sit fireside and sipping delicious drinks and tasting some amazing snacks. Your knowledgeable guide will fill you in on the stories and traditions of Aurora. Lapland’s wilderness combined with nature’s greatest light display is what you get to experience on day one.
Start out with a warm, hearty breakfast and then head on to your Husky adventure. This represents the essence of what Lapland is all about. The huskies of Apukka will take you on an hour-long safari as you mush your way through the countryside. Huskies are the region’s most beloved animals. You are guaranteed to fall in love with our furry friends. You even have a chance to pose for photos with your sled dogs. For 5-10km you will take the reins as you steer your team of huskies though the safari that lay ahead.
After your husky adventure, you will have some leisure time before your evening Reindeer journey — an experience like no other. Imagine traveling on a reindeer driven sleigh through the snowy artic terrain, the brisk night air against your face and an absolute blanket of stars overhead. This is the Arctic Circle at its best.
Coming upon a fire from a remote lavvu, you will then rest and enjoy a nice hot drink while listening to the fascinating tales of your guide. And if you’re lucky, those Northern Lights will make their grand appearance!
Another day of adventure, another incredible breakfast to start things off. Next you will head to Santa Claus Village (yes, it is as charming as it sounds) to transfer to your next glass igloo accommodation—we call it a little bit of luxury that really brings the outdoors right into your room.
After settling in and taking some time to yourself, you will then embark upon your Aurora Borealis safari. This time the safari takes you not only through a snowy forest but also across a frozen river. The sky will hopefully be ablaze with the magical light display that is the Northern Lights.
Another campfire, some more amazing snacks and delicious drinks await here in the midst of Lapland.
Start the day with a complimentary breakfast and then get ready for your one-of-a-kind Fishing experience by snowmobile. This journey takes you north via snowmobile where you will travel along the frozen River Ounasjoki up into the hills. Here you will experience pristine landscapes, lush, snowy forests and the vast wilderness that comprises this Arctic region.
Once arriving at a small lake in the middle of the woods, your experienced guide will direct you as to the best ways to catch fish. Ice fishing has never been so much fun—especially when you get to cook up what you catch over a campfire. Trust us, nothing tastes quite this good! You then return to your igloo oasis and enjoy some rest and relaxation. On day four, you also get to experience your Farewell dinner where you will say your goodbyes to Lapland and all of its Northern Lights magic.
Prior to departing, enjoy a warm breakfast. Then it is time to bid adieu to this amazing Artic Circle wonderland. Private transfer will take you to the airport or train station.
