Santa and Skiing in Finnish Lapland 27.12.-6.1.

Santa and Skiing in Finnish Lapland 27.12.-6.1.

First  3 nights of Santa and wildlife in Rovaniemi, New year's night in an igloo followed by 3 or 4 skiing days staying in a charming, serviced log guesthouse.  

Rovaniemi  is the capital or teh Lapland region located at the Arctic Circle, best known as the home town of Santa Claus. Our plan is to take you right away to Santa's Village to get the winter wear and to enjoy winter fun in Snowman*s World. Next day you will visit the Santapark. 

On your third day you will take a bus and drive directly to Ranua zoo, get to know the Arctic animals and have a sledge-dog safari there in the middle of the snowy landscape. 

Last but not least you will enter a fairytale.  You will be picked up and already during the transfer you will meet elves in the bus, After arriving to a secret destination appr. 20 km outside Rovaniemi, you will get training to become Santa's Helpers, see Santa's Command centre and meet Santa himself of course. 

Levi  is the number one skiing centre in Finland know for its World Cup Race yearly in November starting the season.

On New Year's Eve you will get to a wilderness camp with igloo accommodation. Children can play in snow, toboggans are available for children in every hotel. In the evening you will have a special New Year's celebration dinner. 

For your skiing days we have found for you the most charming accommodation in a nicely renovated, private guesthouse by lake Immeljärvi. This guesthouse has both breakfast and dinners served as well as a lakeside sauna worth trying. Rental price is the same wheather you are two or three families but very competitive to any separate apartments. 

On New Year's day we suggest you to take a short family snowmobiling tour around the Kätkä fell. Children will sit in a covered children's sleigh. The oldest of them has the honour of sitting in back of the guide.
