Family Winter Activity Holiday with Santa

Family Winter Activity Holiday with Santa

A short break planned for families with small children. You will see the Santa Claus and spend time in Santa's Village as well as see the Arctic animals and experience a husky safari. 

1) Visit the Arctic zoo and have a husky safari there. Stay in cozy holiday apartments.

2) Watch northern lights (if you are lucky), try ice-fishing and enjoy Lappish delicacies on an island just outside Rovaniemi, not forgetting meeting Santa Claus himself at the Arctic circle.

We have made it easy for you. The package includes accommodation, full pension, transportation and activities.

Ranua Zoo  is an animal park where Arctic animals have been placed in environments as natural for these species as possible. The visitors are walking on wooden bridges appr. 2,5 kilometres. Alltogether there are 50 species of animals living in this zoo and 200 individual animals. You'll see for example a polar bear, an elk, a wolverin, a lynx, a bear, an otter, a beaver and an eagle owl.

Gulo Gulo  is a new quality holiday village quite next to the zoo. The superior chalets are 65m2 and they each have 6 beds in two floors. Each chalet apartment also has their own kitchen and a very stylish and great sauna. You can order any catering to the apartment from the room service.  The houses are named after different animal species.

This is an excellent place for having a husky safari as all the activities here are planned for families with children. The husky safari will start from the husky base camp next to the holiday village and will take 2 hours. You will be mushing in the Arctic nature for 20 kilometers.

Next morning it is time to meet the polar bear. There are no other polar bears living in Finland, their area of living is closer to the north pole. You will get to see the polar bear close and follow the feeding. All this takes place very early in the morning so we suggest you'll sit for breakfast after this event and then go ad see the other animals.

Extra activity: Santa's secret cabin. Before Christmas it might be exciting for children to include an adventure in winter forest. The children will look for Santa claus and find him in his small cabin, where he comes every now and then to relax. Price: 110€/adult, 89€/child.

Rovaniemi  is the capital of Lapland region. Your hotel will take you by surprise. It is located on a small island in the middle of the river Kemijoki. What a great place for watching northern lights just outside the illuminated city centre. On your arrival day a guide will come to your hotel and you will try ice-fishing next to the hotel. In case water is not frozen properly and ice fishing is not possible, you will try snow-shoeing with the guide.

Next morning a driver-guide will take you first for a visit to the highly interesting Arktikum museum and then to the Santa's village at the Arctic Circle. There you can meet Santa Claus in his public post office. It is also possible but not necessary to arrange a private visit for the price of 450€ for a group of 1-6 people, next ones 68€/person. In Santa's Village t here are a lot of outdoor activities also suitable for small children, for example reindeer sleigh rides and miniature snowmobiles. 

Extra activity during 18.11.2017-13.12018: Visit to Santa Park  

A bit further away there is a Christmas World underneath called SantaPark. Join the Elves in their magical world, be a part of the funny Elf school, taste the delicious gingerbread cookies in Mrs Gingerbread's Kitchen, feel the crispy touch of winter in Ice Princess´ Ice Gallery, take a memorable ride in Magic Train, send your own greetings from Post Office and enjoy the incredible Magical Christmas Show on the stage. This place is very close to the airport so in case you are leaving later in the afternoon, a visit can also take place on your way to the airport. Price: tickets at the entrance 17,50€/adult, 15€ children 3-12yrs. Guidance with transport from Santa's village 200€/group.
