Christmas Tour to Helsinki and Lapland 21.-28.12.2019

Christmas Tour to Helsinki and Lapland 21.-28.12.2019

Experience Christmas in Finland, meet Santa Claus and enjoy the best winter activities. 

Pyhä  is a ski village in north-eastern Finland located next to Pyhä-Luosto National Park. Here you will have a chance to try an ecological glass igloo and have a snowmobiling tour through the snowy landscape. We have reserved one day for skiing or other self-chosen activities. 

After one night and two days in Pyhä we'll take you either to beautiful log cabin apartment in Salla (=more privacy, out of village) or to a guesthouse in the middle of a village called Savukoski. 

a)Joosula  is a guesthouse hosting max 9 guests at a time. Please note, that it is a private home hosted by Tuulikki and Pentti, not a hotel. You'll get your own family apartment upstairs and you will be the only guests. 

b)Pan village  is a charming, small holiday resort with log houses each divided in 4 log apartments with 3 bedrooms, own kitchen and sauna. It is located next to the Salla Reindeer Park with a cafeteria serving you breakfast, lunch and catering in addition to the snowshoeing, reindeer and husky safaris.  Here you have a chance to enter the snowy landscape and the magical untouched forest!

You will meet Santa Claus on the 24th of December for the first time and then again in his command centre in Rovaniemi. 

Rovaniemi  is the regional capitol of Lapland. Santa's village is the ever-growing holiday village, which at Christmas time has a high number of visitors. You will arrive here by bus, leave your luggage to storage and take a short look around. We have not included any tickets to activiteis here as we suggest you would take a trip to Santa's secret command centre in the evening. This tour is really well-made, even an adult starts to believe in Santa again not talking about the teenagers.You will arrive to a lighted winter forest where elves welcome you and take you gradually to the cottage where you can see, how Santa takes care of all the logistics and planning. It is like a living fairy tale. 

Helsinki is your last destination where magic continues. You will first visit a confectionary factory where you get to know more about chocolate production and are able to taste all kinds of fazer products. They will give everyone a gift bag and you have a chance to buy gifts home from their factory shop. 

In the afternoon it is time to visit the winter circus by dance theatre Hurjaruuth. This belongs to the Christmas time program of every family in Helsinki.
