Your day-by-day itinerary

Welcome to the white world of Rovaniemi

Land in Lapland and discover a world of snow and ice. Upon arrival, a driver will be waiting for you to take you to your hotel in Rovaniemi. You’ll have the rest of the day and the following morning free for you to explore your surroundings at your leisure. The hotel that we have planned for you is a centrally located city hotel in Rovaniemi and if you get a little cold after the adventures outside in the snow, make use of the onsite Finnish Sauna.

On a husky safari & free time

After lunch on day three, it’s time for action as you head out on a husky safari! You’ll get to know these Arctic dogs and how to handle them up close. After your guide gives instructions, you’ll climb a sled pulled by six or more huskies, who will be full of anticipation. With one person acting as the musher (driver), the others in the sled can enjoy the winter wonderland landscape. You’ll take a break along the way, so you have time to take pictures, have a hot drink and change position if necessary. There is nothing planned for the following day, so you can do as you please.

A Kingdom of Snow and Ice

Today you will be picked up and taken to what is for many travellers the highlight of their Lapland winter holiday. Tonight you will sleep in a hotel made of snow and ice: the walls, the roof, the beds and even the glasses in the bar are all frozen. Take a tour through the hotel, where your guide will tell you about how the hotel is rebuilt every year. For the night you’ll get a thick thermal suit, a sleeping bag and some reindeer skins on the mattress to keep you warm… sleep well! The next morning you will be woken up with a warm berry drink and the breakfast buffet will be ready for you to enjoy. After this, you will travel back to Rovaniemi.

Stay in Rovaniemi & departure from Lapland

After your night in the ice hotel, you will return to your modern city hotel in Rovaniemi for the final few nights of your winter holiday. For these final days there is nothing necessary to plan in advance, but if you can’t get enough of the winter landscape, why not try arctic ice floating for a real chill or enjoy a Lappish supper under the northern lights. On your last day, it’s time to leave and you’ll head back to the airport to fly back home with lots of special memories.
