Christmas 2019 Trip to Salla

Christmas 2019 Trip to Salla

Visit Santa's Village and  sit at campfire in Rovaniemi, enjoy winter activites and a charming log cabin in Salla. 

Rovaniemi  is the regional capitol of Lapland. It is located at the Arctic circle. It is also known as the home town of Santa Claus. You can meet Santa throughout the year in his post office at the Arctic Circle. We recommend to start your visit from the Arkikum museum, which gives you facts first abut the Arctic.

Santa's Village and Snowman World

Santa's Village is a big area full of activity providers, gift shops  and restaurants. In one house you have seen the most , maybe have tried the miniature snowmobiles and the rest of the time our clients have liked to spend in Snowman's World. Santa wil visit you in Salla so no need to gueue to his office here. 

Snowman World is the ultimate winter destination – a frozen world of snow and ice. Feel the fresh winter breeze, have fun in the snow, touch the glittering ice and witness the lucid colours of the Arctic Circle. Get hugged by a friendly snowman and see the wild dance of the Northern Lights.

Salla  is a small ski village in eastern Lapland  It is not as known as the bigger ski villages and therefore less crowded. There are very high-class log apartments with 3 bedrooms in each located in a beautiful landscape a few kilometers outside the ski village. What the best, next to the cabins there is Salla Reindeer Park with full catering services as well as husky, snowshoeing and reindeer programs available within walking distance.  

Activities in Salla:

1.Northern Lights Hunting by reindeer 3h

Our Northern Light hunting trip starts from the Reindeer Park after the darkness falls. In night time our reindeer are connected to each other so you don’t have to worry about anything else but enjoy the ride Our route, about 6 kilometers, passes through a snowy forest and open swamp areas. During the ride we will stop at a corral, where we feed our female and calf reindeer. Half way we will have a bit longer break and make a big fire next to a swamp. Red flames and open fire will make you feel warm and create cozy atmosphere. Around the fire you can enjoy hot berry juice or hot chocolate.
One can go a bit further from the fire place, in complete darkness, and try to hunt the Northern Lights. Swamp opens to the north and there’s no light pollution so if you are lucky, that is very good place to see the auroras.

2. Arctic Snowshoeing trip with ice-fishing 4h (suits children)

This traditional way of moving in the snow is really fun and easy to learn. On the trip you can advance on your own pace so you will have time to enjoy the nature in peace. From the wintery forest you will find lots of interesting things. Our guide will tell you about the nature, animals and pretty much anything you want to ask.  Along the way you will see a breathtaking wall of ice, you have a chance to ice fish and of course enjoy small lunch and hot beverages in traditional Lappish Hut.
Base track is quite easy to pretty much everyone can do this trip. Normally we walk about 3 to 4 kilometers.

3. Husky safari 2h 

On our Husky Safari you will feel like the hero of the wilderness. Enjoy the untouched wilderness and feel the speed of the huskies. Before the safari our guide will give you a driving lesson and tell you how to handle the sleigh. In every sleigh there is one place for passenger and driver is behind the sleigh. Passenger and driver will change places half a way so everyne gets a chance to drive.
On the safari you will get to drive a team of dogs across varying Lappish terrain. Along the way we take care of you and serve some hot drinks and sweet buns. You can also grill a sausage by an open fire. If you want to have a real break from everyday worries you should have a day trip. There will be more driving, more time to enjoy and our guide will prepare a proper lunch in the wilderness.

4. Santa Claus visit will take place either in a Lappish hut or in one of your cabin apartments
