The evening begins with a tranquil cruise on the River Kemijoki in a traditional long and open riverboat. Thanks to the remarkable Midnight Sun, you can feast your eyes on all of Nature’s splendour even though it is late at night! Your guide will prepare and serve you a Lappish-style evening meal. Prior to midnight, you will disembark your riverboat and be driven to the top of the Ounasvaara Fell, from which you will enjoy magnificent views and raise a glass of sparkling wine in toast to Lapland’s white nights and the Midnight Sun.

  1. Susan K.

    We were very happy to be collected from the train station in a large taxi with a very friendly, helpful driver.
    Our first impression of the hotel Scandic Pohjanhovi was good, but the man on reception was not terribly friendly or helpful. However, the breakfasts were fantastic – delicious and lots of choices.
    As for our tours – safaris were excellent! We had a guide all to ourselves on our busy, first day and she was brilliant. The following night we did the Midnight Sun tour – the staff transported our group to an old logging island and cooked a wonderful meal, followed by a drive to the fell to see the midnight sun. The clouds parted and we had an amazing view and a glass of bubbles. We loved it. We couldn’t recommend Lapland safaris high enough.
    Our transport to the airport arrived punctually on our departure day – a stress free experience.
    Thank you for organising our time in Rovaniemi so well.
