Meet Rovaniemi

Pack your warmest clothes and get ready to explore Rovaniemi, the official hometown of Santa Claus! Surrounded by snow-covered landscapes
in the high North of Finnish Lapland, the city is located six kilometres south of the Arctic Circle. It is not only the perfect place to make acquaintance with new arctic friends like huskies or reindeer – thanks to its favourable location, the chances to catch sight of the mysterious
Northern Lights are extraordinarily high. But Rovaniemi does not only offer spectacular nature: fun theme parks and the Arktikum museum offer entertainment for both young and old. Embrace the ultimate Lapland experience and meet Rovaniemi.

Afterwards, the transfer will bring you back to the hotel. But the adventure is not over yet! In the evening, a relaxed four-hour chase for the Northern Lights awaits you. Meet your guide at the Arctic Circle information. After stepping out of the car into the middle of the Lappish wilderness, you have the possibility to enjoy some fried sausages and hot juice next to a crackling open fire.
