There are only certain parts of the globe where you can experience this phenomenon in the “up close and personal” way it is meant to be experienced. The Arctic Circle is the absolute best Northern Lights vantage point you can have. And we are giving you a unique chance to not only see the mystical Northern Lights like you never have before, but coupled with our total Rovaniemi package, you will partake in a safari adventure that will live in your memory for years and years to come.

You will arrive in Rovaniemi and there you shall have private transport to the glass igloo 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 Lapland 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.

Marianne K –
I just got back from a winter trip to Lapland with Scandi Travel, and I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of my life! I’ve always wanted to see the Northern Lights, and thanks to Scandi Travel, I was finally able to witness this incredible natural phenomenon.
The tour guides were amazing and really knew their stuff when it came to finding the perfect spot to see the Northern Lights. We saw them on multiple nights, and each time was just as awe-inspiring as the last. The lights danced across the sky in shades of green, pink, and purple, and it was truly a magical experience.
But the Northern Lights weren’t the only highlight of the trip. We also got to experience a reindeer sleigh ride, go snowmobiling, and even stay in a cozy cabin in the middle of the wilderness. The food was delicious, and the people we met were friendly and welcoming.
Overall, I would highly recommend Scandi Travel to anyone looking for an unforgettable winter adventure. The Northern Lights were the cherry on top of an already amazing trip, and I can’t thank Scandi Travel enough for making it all possible. I’m already dreaming of my next trip with them!
