Itinerary

 
Day 1     Rovaniemi
Accommodation: Sokos Hotel Vaakuna

Arrival by flight on own. Transfer from Rovaniemi Airport to the hotel. For this day, we recommend an early dinner (not included) at the hotel restaurant since the kitchen will be closed after you return from the Northern Lights Safari. At 7.00pm - Pick up and transfer to the starting point of the Reindeer Safari to search for the Northern Lights. When you arrive, you will be greeted and instructed in care-taking of the reindeer. We will then drive the sleigh to a small forest camp where you can warm up and enjoy snacks to eat and a warm drink. Northern Lights are variable, and therefore it is difficult to describe exactly how the trip will be. Transfer back to the hotel around 23.00.
